Pale golden colour, minimal head. Bready aroma like most lagers. Pretty dry and light bodied with some grassy hops. A refreshing pils like lager.

330 ml. green bottle sampled. Thank you! BBF 17.03.2016. Sold as a Nepalese beer but not made there, I almost wonder if this is even sold in Nepal. A small gusher – seriously, a fist one for a macro beer. The least you can expect from a macro beer like this is no issues like that. Never encountered that before. Very pale clear golden, little head. Nose is awful rotting thin, hugely watery metallic corn, hugely oily & spoiled. Taste is hugely oily & watery, spoiled, rotting corn, mold, terrible oily tea, sugar, artificial, chemical, mineral,… Body is thin, watery, chemical & overly metallic. Really bad beer. Rubbish really even if you taking non-beer country standard in mind.

gegwilson (2389) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 8, 2015
Bottle in a Nepalese restaurant in Shrewsbury. Golden with a frothy white head. Light aroma of citrus and grain. The taste is sweet grain with a hint of citrus. A very average slightly sweet pale lager. Just about drinkable. Disappointingly not even a country tick. Why dress this up as Nepalese when it’s brewed in England?

Rune (9661) - Tromsø, NORWAY - OCT 1, 2015
330ml bottle, 4.7 % abv, at BaseCamp, Nepalese Restaurant in Helsinki. Airy white head reduced to a patchy layer. Poor lacing. Bright golden body. Pale malty sweetness on the nose. Taste is rather sweet dominated by grainy malts. Sweet malty endnotes. Soft carbonated. Unvaried but okay with the tandoori lamb (27.09.2015).

Bottle 0,33l at Ashoka in Amsterdam. Bready, with some bitter notes, grass and honey. Far from anything extraordinary. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"The Essence of Nepal" Drank from a nonic glass poured from a twelve ounce bottle. Pours an amber, yellow with decent carbonation and a bit of white head. Has super skunky aroma. Has a light, malty taste too it. A decent brew.

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.
