2.2/5  rDev -12.4%
look: 2 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.25

Bottle: embossed 330mL brown label with a rubbish macro label.

Appearance: light golden in colour with a big bubbling head that dissipates quickly. Not flattering.

Aroma: light grains as expected from an adjunct, but with a light yet unmistakably thick off fug. Not a massively pleasant aroma.

Taste: cheap corn with more of that thick fug. Not much more to it.

Aftertaste: dissipates quickly, thankfully.

Mouth feel: thin body with big, bubbling carbonation. Kind of harsh.

Overall: not a brilliant beer, to be honest. Some vegetable and floral hop notes, but it is overpowered by an unpleasant and awkward funk.

I've had a few Indian beers in my day, and I have yet to be impressed. I'm guessing that this isn't going to change much, but it's worth a try.

It pours an extremely pale stray colour with a minimal head.

The aroma is mostly wet grain, and not much else.

The taste. is grainy with some slight vanilla notes, and slightly bitter towards the end. There is a kind of chemical aftertaste.

Overall, this is probably one of the worst beers I've had in a while. Not recommended.

2.17/5  rDev -13.5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

A: Pours very pale golden with a reasonably large white fluffy/sopay head that quickly sets into uneven lacings.

S: Sweet malt and corn, perhaps some rice. Faint citric notes, and even fainter bitter hops.

T: Light in taste; sweet bready malt. Some bitter hops.

M: Aftertaste stays for a surprisingly long time; bitterness. Body is light and carbonation rich.

O: This isn't all that bad, but still it's a poor product.

2.38/5  rDev -5.2%
look: 1 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2

340ml bottle poured into a water glass.

a - Light straw color with a very thing white head that dissipated almost instantly.

s - Grain, alcohol, and slight notes of hops

t - Corn, Grain, and alcohol.

m - Very light and smooth. Grain water.

o - An OK iteration of a poor style of beer. If you only have macro-brewed lagers to choose from than this is worth a try.

Cobra, ABV: 5.0%.
330 ml bottle, 13.90 SEK at Systembolaget.

A: Pale golden, bubbly liquid and a small, white head.

S: Fruity aroma with notes of citrus, perfume and some alcohol.

T: Citrus fruits, bread, butterscotch and hints of perfume.

M: Soft feel. Body-size is small to medium.

O: The Cobra isn't that bad for an adjunct lager, it tastes decent, but I probably wouldn't buy it again - it's not as refreshing as one could want. Food match: Indian?
