cblado (276) - Washington, USA - NOV 5, 2011
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.

Kolor - złoty, klarowny. Piana - drobna, wysoka, średnio trwała. Zapach - słodowo-kwiatowy. Smak - wyraźny słód, lekka nuta owocowo-kwiatowa, średnia słodycz, lekka goryczka. Do gaszenia pragnienia ok.

Bottle from Queens Plaza Beer & Wine 050315. In the words of Gus Gould - No No No No No. Horrid on all levels.

KeefOz (1097) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - DEC 19, 2014
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.

33 cl bottle from a market in Hong Kong, 5.5%, bottled august 2013. Gold color, clear, short compact white head. Grainy and malty nose. Aroma is grainy, malty, citrus, grass. Taste is sweetish, acidic. Dry finish, carbonated, light to medium body. Meh, average.

daknole (10112) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - JUN 26, 2014
Pale gold, creamy white head. Very yeasty and bready, light crackery malts. Easy drinking and went well with the food we had in Big Bear.

illidurit (2230) - San Francisco, California, USA - JUN 15, 2013
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.

GoufCustom (998) - HONG KONG - MAR 18, 2013

330 ml bottle bought at Jason’s Food & Living in Hysan Place, Causeway Bay. Not-so-pale golden yellow colour; Very thin head and white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Minimal lacing and fizzy carbonation; Smell of sweet malt, bread and light grass; Light sweet taste of full malt, very faint wet cardboard / cold tablets, moderate citrus and pretty strong grassy hops. Light chalk shows up as the beer warms; Medium body; Pretty oily palate; Mouthfeel is dominated by sweet malt in a very light cold tablets / chalky background, followed by citrus / grassy hops to finish. Hop bitterness is quite assertive, much stronger than most macro lagers but still not to the level of German Pils; Slight dry after taste, quite easy to mouth.

Comments: Man, and you thought these guys at some remote corner of the World know nothing about beers. Based on the look, body and taste, this is indeed a premium lager, and I believe the brewer has put in quite a lot of efforts and hearts to it. Still, they have the work cut out on the malt sweetness and cardboard taste (no matter how light) before it can be considered as a good one. Overall it’s so-so and drinkable, and I am glad I don’t have to pay double the price at some Nepalese restaurants to have it. A nice geography tick for me BTW. :)

shoulderbroken (2639) - Tokyo, JAPAN - FEB 1, 2013
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.

maekchu (2607) - Hirakata, JAPAN - OCT 19, 2012
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.
