a shade darker then a pils. small white head. hop flavour is slightly unpleasant. strange watery-sweet aftertaste at the tip of the tongue . the label states this is a "premium lager". its an OK lager. could drink this if there was only Cobra and big-brand-lagers available. or maybe not...

Cimbasso (186) - - NOV 16, 2014
Sampled in an Indian restaurant in Oslo. Golden colour with some hop aroma. This is a rather bland lager with not much character. There is some very mild maltiness and a slight bitterness from the hops, but it is a pretty basic lager. It is fine with a curry, and better then some imported lagers, but not really worth seeking out.

Draught @ La Porte des Indes, London. Decent lager, not too carbonated, not too watery or hoppy.

eduardovl (915) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
330ml bottle served in an ordinary glass. A: Pours a pale yellow color. Clear. Forms a medium creamy white head. Medium to low retention and few lacings formed and left S: First impression is rice, followed by rice. Nothing special Euro Lager. Sweet malts and Lager yeasts. Citrus hops can be felt in the end. Cascade hops style hops I would dare to say T: Pretty much like the nose. Sweet malts upfront. Strong notes of corn and rice. Lager yeasts. In overall, a dry and crispy taste which is finished by a medium citrus hops bitterness M: Very light body and medium to high carbonation. A good stingy hoppy aftertaste O: Good drinkability after all. A cheap but not "that bad" Euro Lager. Note: I though it was a Indian beer when I bought it. But it’s British, right? :S [ BA Review @ 9/25/2012 ]

Despite this being an "Indian" lager, it’s not really a great complement to a curry. There’s nothing in the flavour that stands up to spicy food, just a bit of sweet citrus. It’s also pretty gassy which doesn’t help when you’re about to devour a big meal. The only one of these lagers which I really think works with Indian food is Mongoose. Typical pale lager - little else to say.

Cerveza de espuma efimera, color dorado y sabor ligero, apenas posee aroma, no obstante la botella es curiosa con relieves en sus envase

kidmartinek (3742) - austin, Texas, USA - OCT 6, 2014
Bottle on Llama Island, HK... Pours like cream soda in appearance, color, head, and a lot of bubbles. Aroma is like mud and metal. Gummy flavor and mouthfeel. Coats the palate like a coca-cola, you know, when you can’t get that crap off your teeth. The saving graces are a slight bitterness and cool springwater character in the finish. Drink this only if you are thirsty.

Bright yellow indian lager with white head. Aroma is vague, fruity. Taste is sweet. Drinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
