When I drink Indian beer, you can be sure that I am about to saturate my tastebuds with the most savory, spicy, delectable cuisine imaginable, so the beer is definitely a supporting player, at best. While I'd like a nice cask-conditioned bitter to go with the food, this is the U.S. of A. and you're usually stuck with Taj Mahal, Kingfisher, Flying Horse and the Hayward's line. I still think the 5000 from Hayward's was OK the time I had it but, Flying Horse...its weak lager with a malty sweetness, cardboard hops and a dry finish. Generic yellow, quickly diminishing fizzy head, the big bottle sports a little tag on a collar around the neck, letting you know how great this is. Well, thanks for letting me know guys, 'cause my own tastebuds certainly did not discern this. But...like I said, as a foil to Indian food...its palatable.

650ml bottle shared between myself, my wife and son-in-law on 7th May 2015 along with two other Indian lagers at some random Indian restaurant in Laguna Hills, Orange County. Bright golden pour with a white topping. Almost odourless and tasteless. Slight malty/corn sweetness in the flavour but not a lot going on really. Went well with my Chicken Vindaloo, but I will not be seeking this out again.

Bottle - good size foamy head, dark gold color, pretty generic lager malty aroma and flavor, slightly on the better side probably ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a 22 oz bottle at an Indian restaurant. Pours a clear gold with a thick off white head. Bready nose. Sweet grain flavors. Crisp finish.

Poured from a bottle it is a clear pale golden color with a slight head. The aroma is malty and the taste is thin with some hint of corn it helps ease the spicy Indian food. I am thankful

"another crappy indian lager, although not as bad as a few of em. some cheap corn flavored malty taste, little aroma, which at least isn’t offensive, but no redeeming qualities."

@ Party Town / Florence KY --- "...And when you’re sure the occasion deserves it, serve Flying Horse Royal Lager Beer." Nice hype, but the beer doesn’t earn it. Clear medium amber with a nice white head that lasts 30 seconds or less, then shrinks to the rim; no lace. Taste is similar to the other India beers I’ve had: some sweet malt, maybe an adjunct, then a flat move to a carbonated finish. Of course, it is drinkable. It just isn’t interesting.

Bottle sample at a tasting. Thanks beerandbeyond. Clear yellow golden color. Aroma and taste of pale malt, corn, straw and cardboard. Light-bodied. Just another boring pale lager.
