750ml bottle. Hazy pale golden, white head. Nose is cereals, mainly corn, citrus, yeast, vague hops. Taste is slightly sweet, yeasty, with corn, weak spice and yeast. Finish is slightly dry, yeasty-corny with weak hops. Despite the corn dominating the whole thing, it’s nicely balanced and very drinkable.

Notes de verdura i lŕctic en nas. Mal senyal. En boca entrada correcta perň un post gust un xic desagradable. No val la pena, i menys tinguent en compte el preu que val.

dynamiteninja (1393) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2012
UPDATED: JUN 17, 2012 750ml bottle conditioned. 7.5% ABV, not 8% as advertised. On offer at Ł3.99 at Morrisons. Large white head with no retention. Pale yellow-gold (piss) body. Clear. Aroma is of champagne, rice, corn, hops, lager malt, alcohol and a little yeast in the sediment. The nose is not very pronounced, not necessarily a flaw, just a fact. Definitely produced to a similar recipe to Cobra Lager. Fairly neutral taste. Dry, sightly bitter finish. Smooth drinking.

In July 2010, I wrote this: Sold in the UK as ’King Cobra’, it costs Ł6.75 for the regular 0.75 Litre bottle at one of my local Indian restuarants (about $10.00). The two 0.75L Cork and Caged bottles from last night were poured into four champagne flutes and topped up fairly often as we drank our way down the bottles. Light, lemony yellow with a slight haze, especially at the lower end of the bottle (no bits, but obviously some light sediment is in the base of the bottles. Lively head in the pour, but no staying power. The smell is of Belgian yeasts, interesting but not strong. The beer is really a strong lager in taste and feel, I like it and for the price is good value. Not sure it is in the correct style cat, but it isn’t a bad beer at all.

Pours light amber with a creamy white head. slightly fruity/malty aroma, with a light carbonation. taste is creamy, slight background fruit and spices, with a light bitterness. much stronger than its cousin. a very drinkable lager, and great with a curry!

Smooth lager taste leads to a high alcohol flavour which is slightly oily on the palate, not as good as I remember it

Chunky looking, much yeast, almost like stomach acid. Requires some chewing in order to really feel it. The beer itself sucks cheetahballs. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

75 cl bottle. Rated on 12.10.2009
Murky stuff with disappearing head. Aroma feels a lot like basic lager with grainy malt and some fruity notes. Flavour has grainy malt, some fruits and hints of alcohol. A bit more smooth with the yeast. Better than I expected.

0,75 l bottle courtesy of Armando629, thanks! Olyan sárga színe van, mint egy jól megcitromozott teának, vékony, fehér buborékos habja van, ami gyorsan de nem nyom nélkül tűnik el. Illata enyhén citrompótlós, pilsesen vizes lópokrócos és malátás. Íze citrusos, malátás, édeskés és nagyon enyhén komlós és élesztősen fanyar. Nem túl testes, igen szénsavas és eléggé érezni benne a magas alkoholtartalmat. Utóíze édeskés és egy kicsit savanykás. Érdekes egy sör, de nem lett a kedvencem...

0,75 l bottle.
Poured cloudy opalescent pale straw with a medium foamy white head that collapses quickly and diminishes to a small lacing one. Moderated one with a light aroma of fructose and honey, rice, sourish yeasts. Medium bodied one, light fruity character of alcohol, grains and rice, moderated flavor, sourish yeasts, lurking hops.
