Bottled, thanks oh6gdx! Clear deep golden, small head. Fruity nose with some cardboard. Sweetish and fruity with light body and clean mouthfeel. Low bitterness. Neutral pseudo-indian beer without any likable features.

Bottle 0,33l. It pours clear golden with a very small white head. The aroma is corn, stray and light caramel aroma. The flavor is corn, hay, stray, light hoppy and light caramel. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

This was supposed to be Indian beer? Not much to say, regular pale lager.

Bottle @ home. Thought this was an India tick but the fucken thing comes up as a Belgian tick. Huh? Pours a clear golden appearance with a thin white head. Banana, green apple, vanilla, corny aroma- not good. Tangy, sweet malty, a bit juicy, slightly boozy (huh?), gross corny, metallic flavor. Fucken sucks.

Looks like this one is brewed all over the place under "technical supervision" of the original Indian brewery. It’s not bad, but obviously inconsistent. My version is brewed in Rochester, NY at 5.2. This a moderately sweet pale lager. Minimal hop presence. Not bad.

Flaske fra ica prinsdal. Lys gylden farge,nesten uten skum,lite kabonering. En lys smakløs øl. Ikke spesielt forfriskende heller

Pilsner. Nice foam, great color. Tastes like a typical pilsner. has a mild, but but good sweetness to it. a little short of bitterness and has a too abrupt finish.

Poured down the drain. Bacteria issues. I’m sure its better from the source a wee bit fresher too.

Bottle 33 cl. Golden color with an almost non-lasting foamy head. Grains and som herbal notes, seetish taste(caramel). AWFUL!

Ernest (6695) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - NOV 13, 2012
Bottle (4.7% version brewed at Minhas in Monroe, WI). Head is initially small, frothy/fizzy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is medium yellow. Aroma is lightly to moderately malty (grain, husks), with notes of metal, fusel alcohol, DMS, concrete. Flavor is lightly to moderately sweet, lightly bitter. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly to moderately bitter, husky, unclean. Medium body, watery texture, lively/fizzy carbonation, metallic. About as bad as beer gets...exceptionally husky malt with nothing but off notes for accent. Almost no redeeming qualities whatsoever. It’s funny how this is contract-brewed in Wisconsin (albeit at a shitty swill factory) and yet retains all the poor qualities you would expect from a beer from India (or Ukraine, or China, etc.). It’s almost like the guys at Minhas said "You know, guys, we could reduce the DMS and metallic notes really easily if you like and..." to be quickly shouted down with "NO, NO, NO! That’s the special character of Chakra Premium! Do not change!!! 200 pounds of metal shavings added to the boil, as we agreed!!!"
