1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 5/20
Pretty standard asian lager, a bit more body though and maltyish than what i’ve seen in indian, chinese etc lagers (and less hoppy). A strange metallic feel, as if you would be drinking out of a steel jar even though this came in a glass bottle. Also, the body has a slight caramel/honey-like sweetness which makes me wonder what (other than barley malt) has gone into it.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled 330ml (K-Kamppi, ABV 4.7%, BB 10/2011)
Golden clear color, medium-sized white head. Nose starts with hayish, cannabis like aroma, then metal, cardboard and sweetish maltyness. Light to medium bodied. Very expected flavor: harsh, a bit fruity maltyness with strong metallic presence, low bitterness. Similar to Chinese or some Indian lagers. Ice cold I could use this with Nepalese food, otherwise totally useless.

Bottled@omhpertasting (thanks hanniku!). Golden colour, smal white head. Aroma is bready malts, some mild fruits, grass as well as hay. Flavour is rather similar. Clean, but very boring.

Probably a little biased since I’ve just drunk a bottle but this has gotta be one of the best beers I’ve tried. Compares along side Fiji Gold.
Need to locate more ...

Although the only Nepalese roots from this beer isthe owner of the brand it certainly is a gain for the British beer market.
