Ölen intogs vid en fantastiskt bra indisk restaurang i Göteborg och det är möjligt att den goda maten gjorde så att ölen upplevdes som bättre än vad den faktiskt var.

Hm, seems like everybody’s talking about different versions of this, so just to be clear, mine is: 0.5L bottle. apparently brewed in the czech republic according to an ’indian recipe’. dark yellow, golden, coppery in colour, basic malts on the nose, with a slight touch of greenish hops. A bit of honey, cornish malt flavour with some metallic notes. Could see me having one of these with some tandori just because of the indian-like label on the bottle (although I’d wish the bottle was filled with something else..).

olio (7928) - Tampere, FINLAND - AUG 26, 2011
50 cl bottle.
Pale golden colour. Aroma is grass, some mild hops, citrus and malts. Flavour is citrus, some dry hay, malts and distant notes of caramel. Light-bodied and very watery mouthfeel with a dry finish. This should go well with spicy food, otherwise, don’t bother.

brewed by Zubr in the Czech Republic; from Gourmets in Neuchâtel - clear golden beer with almost no foam left; oily grassy aroma; medium-bodied and gently tart and bitter; quite harsh herbal finish - drinkable

12oz bottle 8/9/11 (Binny’s Naperville Singles Rack)-46° in English Pint-Pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of malt, apple cider, Belgian yeast, and grains. Taste of yeast, malt, grains, grass, and malt. This light bodied brew is pretty basic with a cidery taste.

Hermod (4454) - Vantaa, FINLAND - JUL 27, 2011
50cl bottle. Poured pale golden with a thin white head. Aroma is rubber and malt. Flavor is next to none, some grassy sweet maltyness, low to no bitterness. Quite awful.

troyc (2870) - Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2011
[Bottle] Pours a clear yellow color with a fizzy head from a brown bottle. No expiration date on the bottle. Sweet aroma of grain and apple cider vinegar. The initial taste is dominated by a sickly green apple flavor which completely masks anything else this beer had going for it. Bubbly soda-like carbonation. A bit sweet in the finish. Nearly a drainpour, which I very rarely would do.

Pale Lager month installment number 17: At the end of a long day, I like to reach for a Chakra. It’s made in Belgium, so I can be sure of it’s quality. But it’s brewed for to appeal to the sensibilities of the Indian palate so I know it’s won’t disappoint. Chakra pours a fairly pale yellow color with a medium sized fluffy white head that disappears. The aroma is quite reminiscent of sweet apple cider with maybe just a little bit of toasty malt. The flavor is like apple cider and malt liquor! YUM! Seriously though, this stuff tastes like grocery store apple cider with a good deal of corniness and alcohol. As it warms some yeasty bread dough appears along with some mildly harsh bitterness, all the while the alcohol grows ever more annoying.
