King Cobra & Curry - does it work?

I recently received some bottles of King Cobra [baron rating 5/5 ♫] to try from Kristy at Molson Coors and knew that Chris was having a curry evening soon so I gave a bottle to him to try with the curry.

Here are his thoughts:

The Cobra was excellent. Smooth, frothy rather than sparkling, quite sweet and well up to handling a curry. In fact I'd say it is one of the best curry beers I've ever had, maybe the best.

It's a lovely refreshing drink and just what you need to counter the spice and refresh the palate. I'm not a big fan of lager, but this is a world away from the fizzy stuff. Very good indeed.

I shared it with two dinner companions - one a beer drinker and one who prefers wine - and they both loved it. Interestingly they both said it was better with the food than later, when the food was finished; on its own they both thought it was a bit sweet. I'm not so sure, though. I could drink it without, but it would be perfect with a barbecue on a hot summer's day. The size of the bottle and the alcohol make it perfect for sharing.
