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.

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Never tempted before, I had assumed that it was a beefed up version of the Coors curry beer. However at £4 from Morrison’s, I decided to give it a go. Poured slightly hazy yellow with a thin white skim. Cereal aroma, and flavour. Texture manages to be smooth and to suggest graininess. My bottle said 7.5% ABV, but the alcohol wasn’t particularly noticeable. All a bit "meh".

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Appearance: Clear golden with no head. The only bubbles that appeared were during the pour but quickly disappeared.
Aroma: Corn, herby, pepper and rice.
Taste: Medium sweetness, low/medium bitter and sourness.
Palate: Thick coarse texture, light body, prickly carbonation, bitter sweet, abrupt syrup, peppery finish with subtle marzipan notes.
Comments: Ok. Strange taste and aroma due to the rice. This rating is for the bottled version 7.5% ABV.

2.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Botella de 75 cl en el parque del Milan. Septiembre de 2013. Como su hermana pequeña pero con mas sabor maltoso y un poco mas de sensación alcohólica. Esta bastante mejor aunque tampoco es cosa de otro mundo. Color ámbar oscuro con espuma blanca persistente y cuerpo medio y sabor con toques dulces. Se bebe bien, sin complicación,

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light gold with a massive, pure white head. Initially tastes like standard pilsner then fades to an aftertaste of strong alcohol which isn’t altogether pleasant. Nothing is added to the beer by it being so strong.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Big bottle, rated from backlog. Yellow with medium white fizzy head. Aroma of malt, fruit and grain. Taste follows with same notes plus some alcohol. I expected a bit more.
