I purchased a round of beers for me and my mates at Sweet Mango. It lived up the expectations set by my Nepali coworkers. Very fresh and different from other Asian beers that Iíve tried. Itís hard to find, as I have requested it at other restaurants. disting2001 (1) - - MAR 6, 2011 does not count
Best import lager beer to come out of asia! Crisp, clean, with a very smooth finish. Great to enjoy on a hot day or with eating rich and spicy food. Devog405 (2) - California, USA - OCT 15, 2011 does not count
Has a light apple flavor. Very aromatic. Light beer with a different flavor. Interesting for something new cblado (298) - 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 wasnít 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. bytemesis (8257) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - JUL 2, 2012
Bottle. Pours pale yellow-amber with a medium fizzy white head with decent lacing. Aroma is very light, floral, a bit fruity. Flavor is NOT grainy, but rather a medium sweet floral, a bit of honey, light bitterness on the finish. Surprisingly pleasant actually, just a bit oversweet.

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.

Bottle from Malt & Vine. Pours light gold with a creamy white head. Aromas of bread and light noble hop. Flavor is bready, and itís rather light and refreshing. Suggests grape for a moment. Finishes bready and lightly bitter. For the style itís spot on. Though the hop may be just a little unusual. daknole (11044) - 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. GoufCustom (1980) - HONG KONG - MAR 18, 2013

330 ml bottle bought at Jasonís 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 itís so-so and drinkable, and I am glad I donít have to pay double the price at some Nepalese restaurants to have it. A nice geography tick for me BTW. :)
Apparently the íflavors of a lost kingdomís include acetaldehyde. Green appley throughout, almost like watery cider mixed with pale lager. Not offensive but pretty blah.
