Sold as Krait Prestige Champagne Lager in North America.
Double fermented to be twice the beer, King Cobra is a unique lager, specially brewed to be extra smooth.

Bottle. Nose is cereal, grassy, some fruity esters, the dreaded pilsner cardboard. Taste is cereal, some soft fruit notes, peach, marzipan, a creamy note which I guess was the rice, the a short herbal and grain finish. Mouthfeel is lager horrible. Bought because it was cheap in Morrisons, I wasn’t expecting it to have been brewed in Palm. In fairness it’s much more interesting than the souped up macro-lager I expected, but is still not actually nice in a meaningful sense.

Looks like a normal golden piss coloured larger. Smells wheaty. Clear rice taste with barley tones and malt finish. Refreshing and deceptively strong.

750ml bottle as a gift, purchased in Morrisons Supermarket, Glasgow:
I wasn’t quick sure about this one at all really, on the one hand it was quick strong and fairly basic but on the other it was easy to drink despite the strength and seemed better than what you usually get from an imperial pilsner, it wasn’t great but it was certainly a decent effort. I’m not entirely sure it’s a beer I’m realistically likely to pick up again but it is another off the 1001 list and I did manage to finish it easily enough.
