Pint on-tap at Green Chilli Cafe, Glasgow (3.80):
Much better than expected but thats not to say it was great beer, just that I was expecting worse. Starting with basic malts & the odd skunky flavour, it was drinkable & seemed to go well with my curry but had to be drunk fresh & cold as it faded the longer I left it sitting. There was some grassy touches & a light-bitter finish but in truth it was quite basic so its not one to go hunting for.

Grumbo (1792) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - FEB 21, 2016
Rated from historic notes, bottle at an Indian restaurant. Poured a pale gold colour with an average sized white head. Aroma was malty, touch of hop and caramel. Light bitterness and sweetness. Average carbonation. Not much to this really.

Pint kashmiri aroma, wakefield. Pale yellow with not much head. Aroma is nicely malty With A Little sweetcorn and some floral perfume. Taste is mild and crisp, slightly bitter on the finish. Watery but not too fizzy. Not much of a beer, but perfect for a curry.

Hardly any aroma. Looks like a standard lager. Not bad. But any lager would be good with a curry right now ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

reebtogi (5945) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
330ml bottle pours a pale golden color with a small white head that leaves very little lacing on the glass. Aromas of grainy malts and mild hops. Taste is malty sweet with not quite enough hop bitterness for a proper balance of flavors. Only slightly better than a typical macro.

Martin243 (1065) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - NOV 13, 2011
Large bottle from some bargain store. Grainy aroma, pale urine yellow stale cardboardy taste, I guess its only a bargain if its drinkable which this was, just. I wont go out of my way to repeat the experience though.

Cunningham (7344) - Halden, NORWAY - OCT 25, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 1, 2012 Bottle from Oddbins in London. Deep golden colour with a white head. Moderate malty and hoppy aroma. Too sweet malt flavour.

faroeviking (10295) - FAROE ISLANDS - AUG 13, 2008
Botella. Clear deep golden with a short lasting white head leaving a pretty fair lacing. Weak malty and grainy bit sweet aroma. Soft mouthfeel. The flavour is soft with a mild sweet matiness and little ripe fruits. A pale lager with more flavour than I suspected.
