Probably a little biased since I’ve just drunk a bottle but this has gotta be one of the best beers I’ve tried. Compares along side Fiji Gold.

Enjoyed this Nepalese beer last week, went down really well with my Jalfrezi. About time the Neplese produced a world beater...... devreemde (1) - dordrecht, BELGIUM - AUG 18, 2008 does not count
Although the only Nepalese roots from this beer isthe owner of the brand it certainly is a gain for the British beer market.

Bottle at Yak Yeti Yak, Bath. Pours clear gold with a fine, foamy white head. Moderate cereal aroma, hints of dough and dry hay. Light sweet flavor, mellow cabbage, cereal, low hay bitterness. Light bodied with fine to average carbonation. Light sweet finish, some crunchy cereal, mild floral notes, straw. Lighly toasted pale malts. Nice pale lager.

Bottle. Golden beer with a strongish white head. The aroma is malty and plainly hopped, and the flavour is gently bitter with a malty dry finish. Overall a basic lager like beer.

What a con! Imagine my excitement at finding a lager from Nepal only to realise that it was brewed in Manchester.For this alone Lees need taking to task.They follow up by producing a poor lager lacking in any kind of originality apart from the false Nepal label. having said that its reasonably refreshing with a big head that diminishes quickly. But I will always check the label closely for anything else i try from J.W. Lees. thellgren (1082) - Helsinki, FINLAND - AUG 23, 2014
0.33 l bottle from local supermarket. Looks like an average lager with lots of bubbles and decent head. Taste is very malty, better than I expected. There is also some hops and CO2. Quite nice in its style, not just water with a hint of beer. BlackHaddock (7416) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAR 20, 2016
330ml bottle from Oakham Wines (Rutland): poured into a Duvel glass at home on 20th March 2016. Clear golden amber body, good, deep and full white blanket on top. Malty nose and flavour with a good hop bittering balance, one of the better UK brewed lagers in my opinion. Went down very well with some English Cheeses and salted biscuits. crossovert (13080) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAR 25, 2016
660ml green bottle. Pale gold pour, skunky aroma. Flavor is metallic, not a huge amount of skunk, a bit sweet for the style, not repulsive. leaparsons (10613) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 4, 2003
J W Lees is not prominent on the label as if it is claiming that this is a Nepalese beer. It is brewed to a Nepal recipe. Aromas are light grain and butter. Flavours are light, again. There are some malts but not many. Not great, but not bad for a UK lager.
