Aroma grass mostly. Basic lager-look: clear pale golden, white frothy head medium long. Taste bit harsh, dry and slightly bitter. Light body and feel, standard carbonation. Finish dry, medium long. Did not find this excotic, just normal lager.

RichardGretton (4364) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - MAY 11, 2012
Bottle. Golden beer with a strongish white head. The aroma is malty and plainly hopped, and the flavour is gently bitter with a malty dry finish. Overall a basic lager like beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Aroma has hay, grainy malt and hints of metal. Flavour is slightly sweet with hay and grain. Boring and straightforward.

660ml bottle at a Gurkha curry house in Hastings. Straw with a white head; grassy aroma; sweet grainy flavour - a typical curry beer, but pretty good in the right setting.
