yngwie (14338) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 19, 2011
Bottle. It pours a clear, golden body and a small, white head. A clear, golden beer with a decent off-white head. Rather weak aroma with pale malts, hay, grass and a touch of wet cardboard. Flavorwise it’s much the same, it’s quite dry on the palate, and hard on the carbonation, quite quenching, but as it’s not very good, I’ll rather drink something else. 110819

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.

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.

Pours pale golden with a low head. Aroma is malts. Flavor is much of the same, perhaps a bit watery. Not bad.

jookos (2749) - 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.
