2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Morrisons. Given the powerful name and elaborate bottle I expected better than the bland tasting slightly dry lager that’s clearly stronger than but perhaps lesser than regular cobra. Has a weak pale golden appearance with a small bubbly head that disappears fast. Aroma is slightly sweet.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Big 750ml bottle - pours hazy straw colour with a big bubbly head which gradually fades away. Aroma of fruits, malts and alcohol. Some acidity and a hint of banana. Taste is malts, mild bitterness, some fruits, banana and bubblegum. Light body, light carbonation. I spent £5 or so on this and it was definitely not worth it - especially when I discovered it was infact brewed in Burton-on-Trent - it travelled much further to get to the distributor than it would have to send it straight to my house.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
750ml bottle. Very mediocre. The hopping style does nothing for this strong lager. Brewed with rice and yet cost £5-99 a bottle, need I say more. It is quite smooth, fairly unpleasant, sour and not as nice as the bottle it came in. Do not pay £5-99 for this. I wouldn’t pay £3-99.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle at Balti Cuisine, Cardiff on 4 January 2014. Poured a slightly hazy yellow straw colour with a fluffy white head. Aroma of bread dough, lemon zest and grassy hop. Mild citrus flavour with some bready malt and soft fruit. Pretty smooth beer; carbonation was gentle and natural, rather than the aggressive force carbonation of the regular Cobra and its ilk. Finish was yeasty with some pilsner malt and a mild metallic edge. Fairly drinkable, if not mind blowing and probably the best thing you’re likely to find in an Indian restaurant, beer-wise.
