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

Ernest (6905) - 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!!!"

Holmen1 (3898) - Stavanger, NORWAY - OCT 27, 2012
0,5 flaske fra Helgø: Indisk øl brygget på lisens hos Zubr i Tsjekkia etter en oppskrift fra Punjab. Klar, gylden farge og fint skum. Aroma av strå/høy og gamle sokker. En ubestemmelig, vammel smak, men behagelig karbonert. Noe bitterhet, også i ettersmaken. Ikke særlig forfriskende selv om den hadde kjøleskapstemperatur og jeg var tørst.
