lusikka (7119) - Tampere, FINLAND - NOV 9, 2010
500 ml bottle.
Pours a clear yellow colour with a white, lacy and patchy head. Aroma of strong diacetyl and pale malts. Flavour of pale malts with some bitter hops and honey. Skunky and dry aftertaste. Sort of an Oktoberfest brew gone bad.

Saw this bottle (not the one pictured...a morose and broodingly dark labeled one) from across the Indian restaurant bar, could not make it out, but told my wife the label "looked Belgian"...not really even knowing exactly what I was thinking. Sure enough, it is an Indian pale lager brewed in Belgium...weird! Typical enough pale lager...light roasted malt and slight. lingering corn adjunct aroma and flavor...but nothing offensive or overly objectionable.

Kavu (2919) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 15, 2010
Pours clear golden with a medium head. Exactly like your everyday lager in every way. Drinkable but nothing special.

dwaggs2 (1297) - Jefferson City, Missouri, USA - OCT 10, 2010
Bottle. Average beer all the way down. Poured a pale yellow color with no head. Aroma was grass and malts. Flavor was Belgian yeast, citrus, malts and grass. Thin watery body. I can drink these. Better than AB products.

An Indian beer brewed in Belgium...ok. Anyway nothing really stands out about this one, which is not to say a bad thing. A thin white head on a medium gold body. Crisp, dry taste, with no aftertaste. I enjoyed it.

thegreenrooster (3537) - St.louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 26, 2010
Pour is a bright gold with a small white head. Aroma is sweet grain and dry malt. Flavor is again a very dry malt with almost no hops present. Itís not a horrible lager as there is no skunk or wet paper bag flavor. Itís Indian beer not brewed in India.

zach8270 (3863) - Henrietta, New York, USA - JUN 23, 2010
(bottle - 12 oz) Clear gold with no head and mild carbonation. Mild aroma. Very subtle sweet notes mixing with some grass and corn. Corn and wet grass at the start of the flavor with a very dry and stale tasting malt middle. Clean and watery finish. Nothing impressive but very thirst-quenching.

topherh (1915) - Kearney, Missouri, USA - MAY 18, 2010
Pours clear golden with a thin white head. Aroma is bit of hops and sweet malt. Flavor is lightly sweet, a little grainy, lightly bitter, boring

yesyouam (1016) - Fairport, New York, USA - MAY 4, 2010
Chakra is a very clear, very sparkling pale golden lager with a thin, soft white head that slowly fades and leaves nice lacing. It has a slightly sweet light malt aroma with a hint of funk and perhaps Saaz. Itís light bodied with a dry finish. It starts a little toasty then gets lightly bitter and lemony and finally, sweet. It has a syrupy sweet aftertaste. Itís a little boring but it has no obvious faults. Itís pretty quenching.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - DEC 6, 2009
Medium offwhite head. Deep yellow body. Fruity mealy gasoline aroma with buttery vegetable notes. Dry mealy grassy buttery taste with harsh papery edge. Mid-bodied. Harsh, slick mouthfeel. Dry alcoholic cardboard aftertaste with grassy notes. Bitter grassy taste lingers. This beer is all over the place with both good and bad elements. (0.5l bottle, Centra, Oslo.)
