Braastad (459) - - MAY 10, 2013
Pale golden. Typical faint aroma of malts with little grassy hops. Little pilsener-like but too much starch on the flavor

Nurmis (595) - Oulu, FINLAND - FEB 18, 2017
0,33l bottle from a supermarket. Straight from the bottle. Watery cardboard lager, bad in the sense that there isnt any taste that could be bad.

FatPhil (15796) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - NOV 20, 2016
330ml clear glass bottle (KKK Ruoholahti, Helsinki)
Has that nasty skunky stank as soon as you open the bottle, gee, thanks for using a clear glass bottle. Otherwise pretty bland and a little starchy. Light palate, a bit watery. Some messy esters on top of the bland malts, a bit fruity, but a bit sickly. Finish continues the sickly mess. Some hint of harshness I think it trying to be hops, but isnt succeeding very convincingly.

Bottle in the Yak and Yeti restaurant, York. Bright clear gold beer, good white head. Palate is light, semi dry. Decent fine carbonation. Thin but clean pale malts, no paper. Modest lager character. Very modest tangy citrus. Light finish. Somewhat fresh air but tbere are many worse lagers out there.

kraddel (7692) - Antwerp, BELGIUM - SEP 16, 2016
Pours clear blonde, small white head. Smell is corns, intense, crispy. taste is weak. Mild bitterness, holow mouthfeel. the scent made me expect a bit of positivity, but the taste lacks everything I thought might have been there. Also, I really, really hate the fact how they place it in the market as a nepalese beer. These UK-brewers should at least be honest to their customers. hence the lowest score on appearance !

Vaalean kultainen, yllttvn paksun pienikuplaisen vaahdon tarjoava olut. Tuoksu, samoin kuin maku pasiassa hyvin tunkkainen/pahvinen. Ei tst raikasta saa tekemllkn.

PorterPounder (7806) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUN 19, 2016
Tallahassee, Fl. 500 ml bottle from Persis Indian Restaurant. Solid Indian type lager, slight haze to the medium golden pour, soft snow white head, nice bubble action. Some honey sweetness, pleasant grainy notes, went well with my Fathers Day Indian spicy Indian cuisine.
