Review: Ashadha

Ashadha from Marks & Spencer
Rating: C

This is the second of the dubious Marks & Spencer "Beers of the World" pack that I am giving a try.

Appearance: Pale straw in color, very clear. Lively carbonation forms a big white head with good retention and lacing.

Smell: Lagery, slightly soapy. Not nearly as corn-filled as the first M&S beer from this pack that I tried. Smells somewhat green, if that makes any sense.

Taste: Very clean. Fairly well-balanced, but boring. Crisp, acidic finish. A slight corn tinge to the aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Light-medium body, moderately carbonated.

Drinkability: An improvement on the other beer, for sure, but still just a thirst-quencher.
