Taas on lasissa kullanväristä lageria. Oluen päällä on keskirunsas, valkoinen vaahto. Tuoksussa on yrttistä humalointia ja aavistus diasetyyliä. Maultaan Chakra on hieman metallinen ja yrttisen humaloitu. Keskirunsas suutuntumaltaan. Tsekkiläinen olut Intialaisen reseptin mukaan ja tämä on tulos? Ei voisi olla paljon vähemmän eksoottinen tapaus.

troopie (2295) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - JAN 26, 2011
Bottle. Poured dark yellow with thin lasting white head. Light but pleasant leafy aroma. Light body some sweet malt. Little finish with a bit of hop.

LoFi (1710) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - JAN 4, 2011
Bottle at an Indian restaurant. Golden (darker than Kingfisher and some other "Indian" beers) with quite a large white head. The aroma is thin but has grassy hops. The taste has sweet malt, some fruit and grassy hops. Light-bodied. Works with spicy food, but wouldn’t drink it at home.

FatPhil (13867) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 28, 2010
500ml bottle (K Kamppi, Helsinki)
4 Not much aroma, but what’s there is a bit like industrial machinery - dirty and heavy.
2 Clear pale orange, brief head settles to scum and a ring.
3 Slight papery herby retronasals, accompanied by a hint of baby puke. Taste a pretty messy combo. Chemical mals, industrial hops, and amateur flaws without the mass market filtration to remove them.
2 Watery body, fizzy. What starts of as being slightly pissy ends up more like kindney in the finish.
5 Not a good brew. Would possibly taste good next to a cheap phal.

lusikka (7689) - 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.

RAYBOY01 (2012) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - OCT 24, 2010
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 (4101) - 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.

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. It’s not a horrible lager as there is no skunk or wet paper bag flavor. It’s Indian beer not brewed in India.
