Bottle - and boy, do I feel cheated! And here I thought I was getting a beer from India... just a lasting metallic taste long after the sip was finished...

Golden colour thin tight head that dissipates. Sweet malty aroma. Cold, refreshing smooth lager slightly sweet with clean mild dry bitter balance. Nice.

loco_gallego (177) - SWITZERLAND - JAN 27, 2015
Blonde dorée, translucide. Mousse blanche, relativement persistante pour ce type de bière... Une certaine perception d’acidité au nez... puis rien... Assez aqueuse, acide, un poil de chez poil amère en fin...

DwarfeD (1239) - Amersfoort, NETHERLANDS - JAN 25, 2015
Draught at local bar in Brighton. Clear golden with almost no head. Medium body with moderate carbonation. Quite bitter. Hay, citrus and malts. A boring lager.

GSAP (537) - NETHERLANDS - JAN 24, 2015
Beetje hooi in aroma, smaak niet in balans, licht bitter, maar vliegt hier en daar uit de bocht door waterigheid, zoals de elektriciteit steeds willekeurig uitvalt in een dorp ergens ver weg op het platteland van Andra Pradesh. Tja, done that, tick the box and never think about this one ever again.

330ml bottle bought at Jasons Food & Living in Hysan Place, Causeway Bay.

Dull urine golden colour; Razor-thin head and residual soapy white foam which fades in 5 seconds; Poor lacing with very slight carbonation; Slightly pungent smell of malt, with corn, light rice, sugar syrup, nectar, faint wet paper, soggy bread and light lemon; Medium sweet taste of moderate malt, with very light rice, corn, light sugar, lemon, strong bitterness and grass; Light body. Thin palate; Mouth feel is fairly good maltyness for a Pale, in a not so watry body. Adjunct taste is fairly light, and sugar sweetness is bearable. Yet the unnatural extract-like bitterness kinda ruin the show. Nah!… Hoppiness is lemon and nectar like floral in nose. Lemon and grass in taste. Bitterness is strong hop extract for a lasting and quite unpleasant bitter finish; Slightly dry after taste. Bitter and a bit awkward to mouth.

Comments: I was expecting full-on corn and rice horror like most Asian macro, but turns out quite ok body wise. Fair maltyness and well-controlled sweetness topped with slight floral could have made a decent case, but the hop extract overkill puts it back to zero. A drinkable macro with caution.

Clear golden, frothy white head. Light malty aroma with hoppy notes. Similar flavour, rather smooth with short bitter finish. Ok.

330ml Flasche. Klar und golden. Minimale Schaumkrone. Anständiges Lagerbier, aber nix besonderes.

probado en botella. Cerveza con buen sabor pero no excesivamente destacable. Similar en características a otras muchas lager
