Pale golden. Typical faint aroma of malts with little grassy hops. Little pilsener-like but too much starch on the flavor

Cthulhu (269) - MARSHALL ISLANDS - JUL 10, 2015
33 cl bootle at a Nepalese Restaurant. Pale golden colour and small head.Small herbal and floral aroma and taste.Thin body. So this is just a random british lager with a nepalese label?

Totally thought this was going to be brewed in Nepal. Was somewhat disappointed to discover this isn't the case. Really bland lager.

Aroma is either really skunky or really dank. The flavor is pale malts, a little skunk and not really much else, as usual for a pale lager in a green bottle.

Flat, no foam, no carbonation, pilsener with almost no aftertaste. Brewed in the UK apparently...

Pours clear golden with a white head. Aroma has notes of malt and hay. Taste is light to medium sweet and light bitter. Body is light to medium, texture is thin to oily, carbonation is soft.

Clear yellow colour, no head. Hardly any carbonation, dull taste. I wonder if there was a problem with my bottle as other guests had a glass with a nice white head and seemed to enjoy it.

Light golden colour, very little head. Tastes of hay, some carbonation present. Quite a boring beer.

thellgren (456) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Looks like an average lager with lots of bubbles and decent head. Taste is very malty, better than I expected. There is also some hops and CO2. Quite nice in its style, not just water with a hint of beer.
