Bottle brown, 660 ml
Appearance: Beer pours opaque, golden, bright, head is small, frothy but very quickly disappearing, bee is quickly becoming flat as the gas goes off, head colour is white, no lacing, fully diminishing, body is clear, size is large, density is thin, body is practically flat.
Aroma: Can, watered fur, rust, skunkyness of hops, ink, orange, lemon, citruses, cheap wine, metallic nose, slight, hopy bitterness, grapefruit, a hint of chalkyness, weak and rather poor malty aroma, a hint of rice, soil, tap water of poor quality. When warmer a hint of watered honey and manure.
Flavour: Grapefruit, slightly bitter and salty, nice feel of grains on palate, a hint of skunk and rusty metalic taste at the front, than saltyness and light, sweet , malt taste of grains, dry on palate and becoming more and more chalky from initial metalic taste what creates a quite interesting shift. Finish duration is average, rice is not felt and does not make a bad impression at all, bitter, soiled, English - like kind of hops that remind those used in English ales.
Palate: Body is light, texture is wattery, carbonation on palate is soft, finish feel is chalky, grainy, white bread, flour, very nice, grainy and bready finish, not quite typical for Pale Lagers.

Joakgust (1407) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - JUN 27, 2008
A very yellow colored beer with a small white head. Aroma is very light but fresh. Very obvious corn and rice malt notes. Flavor is light and slightly sour. Ending with a soft hoppy bitterness. Had this together with some hot asian food, probably making my overall impression slightly better than normal.

Nothing to offend here, but nothing to write home about either. An average crispy golden lager. Decent froth.

RPillsbury (115) - Nottingham, Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Bottle at Desi Downtown, Nottingham. I dont know why people drink this; its boring and flavourless. It will always be available in Indian restaurants because thats what the British think you should have with a curry. You couldnt be more wrong! The best match for the strong flavours of Indian food is a light beer that has enough of its own flavours to stand up to those intense spices. Carbonation is good because it cleanses the palate a bit but its not essential; so (good) continental lagers work well as do IPAs. So I say stop being predictable; be bold and have something to compliment and enhance your curry. As a side note, Desi Downtown is a fantastic Indian Restaurant. Perhaps the best curry Ive ever had. Too bad the only lager they have is Cobra.

The aroma is skunky malt and grass. The appearance is pale gold with a thin head. The flavor is bitter and funky like the aroma. The palate is thin. To say this is no good would be an understatement.
