3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12 oz bottle. Poured a golden amber color. Aroma was fruity with floral hops... unusual for a pale lager. The flavor had a surprising amount of character to it, very sweet, with a prominent alcohol flavor. Very lively on the palate. For a pale lager from Nepal, I wasn’t expecting much, but this was a pleasant surprise! I would definitely get this again, if I can find it anywhere else besides Annapurna restaurant in Seattle.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle shared at my local nepalese place. It actually says it is brewed with "natural ingredients"...isn’t all beer. Anyway, light malt nose with some faint rice. Slightly more malt then the Ice thing and not as overly sweet. Still can’t find any trace of hops. Meh.

2.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Clear Pale gold in colour with minimal foam. Honey & Malt aroma. Pleasant, yet slightly watery mouthfeel with sweet malty flavour typical of style. Medium to dry finish with hint of light citrus hops. Typical commercial Lager style. Nothing special but has a weird sherbet zing on the mid palate which was off putting.

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.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Tasted 15/12/2014. BB 25/05/2015. Poured a clear pale golden colour with a few white bubbles as a collar. No lacing. Carbonation very low and coarse. Aroma of slightly sweet malt and grain is quite pleasant but typical of a lager; no obvious hops. Taste of slightly sweet malt but no hops bitterness; malt dominates. Light body. Crisp refreshing smooth mouthfeel typical of a lager. Very similar to Nepal Ice Premium Lager.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Apparently the ’flavors of a lost kingdom’s include acetaldehyde. Green appley throughout, almost like watery cider mixed with pale lager. Not offensive but pretty blah.
