On draft at kushis, pours a clear full Golden with no head, aroma is cereal and light malts. Taste is not all that much light metallic taste, classic session able curry beer

reebtogi (4244) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aromas of grainy malts and mild hops. Taste is malty sweet with not quite enough hop bitterness for a proper balance of flavors. Only slightly better than a typical macro.

Large bottle from some bargain store. Grainy aroma, pale urine yellow stale cardboardy taste, I guess it’s only a bargain if it’s drinkable which this was, just. I won’t go out of my way to repeat the experience though.

Cunningham (4662) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2012 Bottle from Oddbins in London. Deep golden colour with a white head. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Too sweet malt flavour.

faroeviking (10289) - FAROE ISLANDS - AUG 13, 2008
Botella. Clear deep golden with a short lasting white head leaving a pretty fair lacing. Weak malty and grainy bit sweet aroma. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is soft with a mild sweet matiness and little ripe fruits. A pale lager with more flavour than I suspected.

DruncanVeasey (7285) - NUNEATON, Top 22, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - MAY 13, 2008
Bottle, 5.2%. ’Brewed with basmati rice’. At least they’re honest. Almond and paper aroma. Dark gold pour climbing with bathfoamy suds. Stale papery grain, pencilly conifer, obvious sweet ricey afters. No glaring off-notes, and no worse a beer than Budweiser, Corona or a cheap tinned Czech pils. Mo has verified that the name means, ’red storm’.

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 9, 2008
Not very drinkable beer. Unpleasant sweetness that comes from brewing with basmati rice. High carbonation, nice golden colour. "Little Wind" is too little.

Interestingly it translates to ’Little Wind’, just what you need with a curry and a beer. Clean & crisp colour & flavour, easy to drink without any heady after tones.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 9, 2007
Draught at Mr Singh’s with Jacob, with a curry of course. Aroma has some grainy malts but mainly sweetish and herbal. Taste is similar, grassy notes kickin in, not bad with a curry.

Hildigöltur (5103) - København, DENMARK - SEP 2, 2007
Draught at Mr. Singh’s, Glasgow. Decent and fairly clean golden coloured lager. Some fruity notes. Light to medium bodied.
