Arkistoja kaivellessa löytyi seuraavanlainen arvio tästä oluesta: Khukuri on kullan värinen, rajusti kupliva ja niukka vaahtoinen. Tuoksultaan se on yrttisen humaloitu, vihanneksinen ja pahvinen. Pahvinen on myös maku. Hiilihappoja on paljon ja oluesta jää jotenkin teollinen vaikutelma.

lusikka (6248) - Tampere, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2011
330 ml bottle. 4.7% ABV.
Pours a clear yellow colour with a thick whiteh ead. Aroma of pale malts and some mild hops. Flavour of pale malts, grassy hops, mild honey and very mild fruits. Light bodied with a slick mouthfeel. Very drinkable Pale Lager with some taste actually.

Kavu (2236) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAY 7, 2011
Pours pale golden with a low head. Aroma is malts. Flavor is much of the same, perhaps a bit watery. Not bad.

jookos (2161) - FINLAND - APR 18, 2011
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.

TBone (12547) - Pori, FINLAND - APR 13, 2011
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.

kalervo (698) - FINLAND - APR 7, 2011
Thin and non-unique pale lager. Fresh and a bit bitter, not special at all.

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.
