UPDATED: MAR 3, 2007 For a lager its not too bad, It certainly washes a curry down well.
My original verdict on it has been surpassed now as the bottle I drank was warm. Its much nicer ice cold in an indian restaurant.

(Bottle 33 cl) Neatly fully golden beer with a small, discreet head. Brewed with both corn and rice adding to the light feel in this. Ends quite hoppy. A decent quencher and nothing more. 020203

You know youíre in for a forgettable experience when the best the marketing department can come up with is: "Cobra - the less gassy bottled beer". This claims to be brewed to an "authentic Indian recipe" using a "unique blend" of barley malt, maize and rice. Iím not sure I can handle the excitement. Better get on with it... Pours bright gold with a skinny rim of foam. Surprisingly malty aroma considering the ingredients. Sweet smelling with a hint of caramel and canned peaches. Nice carbonation. Sweet and lightly fruity on the tongue with a modest bitter finish. Definite English touch to this - the hop, perhaps? Itís not a world beater but itís better than most of the subcontinental curry beers. (330ml bottle, Amatos)

Bottle, 33cl. Pale lagers junt arenít my type so i wasnít expecting much of this one. Overall, not as bad as i tought. Yellow colour, almost without head. Nice carbonation in the glass but not in the mouth. Strange! Very weak aroma. Flavour isnít bad, very refreshing. Not good but also not the worst beer that iíve drunk. That title probably goes to Bud or Miller.

Goes well with curry. Tastes a bit sweet. Smells sweet too, and i drank it out the bottle. A bit too pricey though.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
660ml bottle. Pale gold, thick white head, bit unpleasant nose, but some hop, overall though not a great aroma. Good in mouth, quite smooth, some butter, not overly carbonated. Finish has more buttery hop. Not much fruit. Smooth easy drinking. Can almost taste the curry.

Nothing in sight or aroma, OK to drink at end of hot night. Sure popular, maybe because its an uncomplex replacement for a macro. Some hop bitterness, Smoothness of malt.

Golden lager with floaties imported from the Gange river. Hay and malt aroma, a bit chalky. In mouth, crisp malts with a little german style hops. Not as bad as decribed below, rather like the Wells Lager. Still, a low 2 for me. Beers of the World, fall 2004.
