Sold in a pint bottle under the name Krait from Browar Belgia, an import of Cobra. I believe this beer may deserve its own rating, apart from Cobra. What I sampled was substantially different from most of the other ratings. Root beer aroma. Pour is cloudy, golden, with a nice head and fabulous lacing . Flavor is well balanced honey and cereals, with the perfect amount of hops in the finish. Very clean and flavorful. Not heavy. Sheer delight.

All round the best lager out there. Smooth, with just the right ammount of complexitites in the aftertaste. Some light fruitiness there too.

I love this beer for almost every occasion. Love the bottle but the head disappoints me. Medium yellow appearance. Just enough CO2. Flowery aroma of elderberries. Fine faint palate. Just good for clean fun and light dishes.

Extra smooth, double filtered, super premium beer. This is a fine Indian beer that is best taken with a pungent curry. It has very little gas, but is not flat. A personal favourite of mine.

Very good. I would like to get drunk in this baby! It has a very light flavour with only a little aftertaste.

Bottle (660ml): Light amber with a finger sized bubbly,white head that has good retention but eventually settles to a thin lacing after a couple of minutes. Standard for a pale lager but it does smell slightly stronger & is generally more pleasant. Mix of bread, corn & grain in taste & is again very similiar to most pale lagers out there only a lot nicer & doesn’t feature any of the usual skunkiness. Very nice on the palate & is quite crisp & refreshing in the finish. Light bodied & maybe just a little watery although very easy to drink & would make the perfect session lager. One of the nicest pale lagers I have had in quite some time. - - - -

Very satisfying, although I have only had it while eating Indian food, but it compliments the spicy foods very well.

Small white head, clear and sparkling golden colour. Beautiful ornamentation on the bottle. Fruity bitter aroma. Spicy taste and a bit sour palate. I like it.
