Pours straw and carbonated from bottle at tasting: Noble hop flavor follows through to finish. Tastes fresh of pils malt, unlike imported Amer. Lite Lager, (in an impressive way).

This one was a bit of a surprise. I was expecting Lhasa to be your average crappy lager, but it’s actually pretty good. It seems like an entirely decent pilsner. It pours your standard very pale yellow, but it has a nice rocky, white head that leaves some lacing. The aroma is rather hoppy - all Saaz grassy bite - with some light yeast and pale malt aromas. There’s a very mild vegetal note, but nothing too bad. Happily, the flavor is quite dry and ends with some good grass hop bitterness. Mouthfeel is smooth, light and well-carbonated. There’s even a bit of hop oiliness. A very refreshing beer and a big step up from most popular pale lagers.

thanks bullzeye! carefully poured from a wicker basket - mapwhoring at it’s finest... color is soft yellow with a slight haze and a billowy medium-bubbled white head. nose is surprisingly soft and floral with some dust/cement basement must and dried corn leaves and other assorted dried or toasted grains/plants. somebody said corn pudding but I can’t make that happen even with how suggestible I am. lightly crisp, lightly dry - saaz hops? didn’t know but guess it makes sense. mostly soft, some sort of rice flavor noticed at times but for the most part it’s inoffensive and easy to like as simple as it is.

Courtesy of markwise. It pours clear gold with white head. The aroma has a mix of spice and floral hops along with malt graininess. The taste is sweet and grainy malts where those notes are cut somewhat by spicy hop bitterness followed by a bit of floral hops.

A basic beer, drinkable, I’ve had worse, this is an average, Pale lager. Sweet, corn,Cereal, some malt, but no off flavors, glad I got to try a beer from Tibet!

This is a nice lager....fresh....will be a great Summer beer. I am almost never a lager drinker - but, I will buy this one! Not to mention the good things the brewer does for charity in Tibet and other places!

Thanks to phaleslu for this one as an extra. Pours clear gold with a white head. Nose is bread, slight corn, water, and lager. Flavor is pretty similar with a background sweetness. Light bodied and a Tibetan Pale Lager. That says it all.

12 oz. bottle. i thought since this brew originated high in the Himalayas that there would be some amazing water or monk magic. this is basically a slightly less flavorful Singha. will not buy more.

This is a simple but eminently drinkable and refreshing lager. No funky flavor, light and smooth. I downed three of these in no time. Quite nice.

Sampled in a 12 oz bottle. Your typical pale ale. Pours pale yellow with a lacey head that goes away quickly. Tastes fine but no real decent flavor of hops or malts. Still, its not bad, its really refreshing and amazed it traveled so well. Nice brew.
