1.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Smells sweet and delicious- if only it tasted that way. Flavor is a curious mix of lighter fluid and Coca-Cola.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden beer, white head which disappear very fast. Some earthy
notes are felt at the begin, and then some malt notes follow. In palate has a light and watery body, bitterness coming from the malt and thatís all. The malt flavor is lost, the strong flavor is lost and the aftertaste is watery.

Like normal kingfisher but with a strong alcohol and unpleasant aroma, cornlike. Avoid.

The head is ok, the body light. It smells malty, a bit alcoholic, bit sweet. The taste is malty, bit bitter, bit alcoholic. Boring but drinkable

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml can bought at a Nepalese grocery store somewhere on Temple Street in Yau Ma Tei.
Light golden honey yellow colour; One quarter finger head with soapy white foam which fades in 15 seconds; Small sticky lacing with active fizzy carbonation; Very sweet smell of malt, with strong sugar syrup, light honey, nectar, pineapple, light bread and hint of grass; Pretty strong sweet taste of thin malt, with moderate corn syrup, slightly caustic alcohol, faint wet cardboard, light lemon, liquorices and light grass; Full body, viscous with oily shin and quite thick palate; Mouth feel is somewhere between Malt Likka and Euro Strong Pale. Like the Bear Beer 9% Extra, the syrupy sweet taste is very notable but not cloying, actually quite restrained. Maltyness is thin, fusel taste is fairly light, very alcoholic but not burning. Itís cheap booze but not an all-out monster; Hoppiness is grassy nose hint, lemon and light grass in taste, and noticeable liquorices for some low-fi astringency pebble-like finish; Wet after taste. Sweet and slightly boozy to mouth.
Comments: This is not as terrible as I feared. Sure there are adjuncts in the mix, but the result is more like a mellowed Bear Beer 9% Extra, with somewhat mellow sweetness without the formerís fusel nastiness. Very few off-tastes and almost on-par with Saint Omer 8.0%, easily enjoyable and recommended.

Poured straw with no head. Aroma of chemical infused turbo alcohol. Light body, flavour of nothing much and no aftertaste.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
I had a few of these 660ml bottles in the Corbett Motel in Northern India. A bit difficult to ascertain the ABV as the bottle suggests up to 8%. Strong malt & maize flavour, dangerously drinkable and cheap with it. The Indian chap on the next table told me i should mix it with water. Not for the discerning drinker but better and cheaper than the imported Fosters.

Bottle. This is rough stuff. Just look at the ingredient list and you know what you are in for.

My bottle [650ml] shared with HogTownHarry, jercraigs & mabel. Pours a slightly hazy pale gold with an average size semi-lasting frothy white head. Aroma of grassy hops, corn, grainy malt and a hint of vegetal notes. Flavour is slightly watery but suprisingly decent, thereís a good amount of grassy hops in there along with pale malt. Average bodied. This was much better then I (and everyone else at the table) expected, itís actually decent.

Has a cheap red wine type of aroma to it. This is in the running for worst beer Iíve tasted. Alcohol is barely hidden at all. Cheap.
