2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Aromas of bread and light noble hop. Flavor is bready, and it’s rather light and refreshing. Suggests grape for a moment. Finishes bready and lightly bitter. For the style it’s spot on. Though the hop may be just a little unusual.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bottle shared at a tasting at kerenmk’s place. Clear golden with a small quickly-diminishing head. Aroma has a bit of sourness, a bit infected-like, a bit of saccharine and some cereals. Sweet grainy flavor with a sour note and a slightly husky finish. Light-bodied.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
[ Bottle ][ 12oz ][ Himalayan Big Bear Lake ][ $4 ][ Flute ][ 5.23.15 ]
>> Funny, never once saw this for sale in Nepal. Sparking gold pour, detergent head. Soapy retention. Nose is corn, paper, mildew, candy corn. Taste is inoffensive- soft body, candy corn, cardboard, white bread, mild sugar. It’s drinkable, but forgettable and missing needed bitterness.

Bottle. Pours pale yellow-amber with a medium fizzy white head with decent lacing. Aroma is very light, floral, a bit fruity. Flavor is NOT grainy, but rather a medium sweet floral, a bit of honey, light bitterness on the finish. Surprisingly pleasant actually, just a bit oversweet.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle at Indian restaurant in Shibuya. Appearance is unsurprisingly pale lager like, bit creamy not so much bitterness, clean tasting, surprisingly drinkable. Aroma not much there aside from a lager smell. Not unpleasant, but a bit unexciting. Bit helles like.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle at local Indian restaurant. Soda pop fruity nose. Light pale straw. Big cardboardy initial; mid is fizzy and candyish; final brings a touch of bitterness. Thin body. Fizz and sweetish cardboard is really the whole thing.
