What makes a lager "premium"? If not related to the price, it should certainly have a positive feature. I was hoping this "East Indies" Premium Lager would have more of a hoppy note, but in reality it was more of of an "Indian Style" lager, sweet grassy, straw, like a Kingfisher.

Draft at the source, courtesy of staff, thanks! Hazy golden amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet hay. Taste is bittersweet straw.

The colour was medium amber gold, with a medium frothy head, and moderate carbonation. The aroma was light and fruity, with malt and light bitterness. The flavour was quite sweet, with malt and light bitter hops. This beer had smooth soft flavours. It was a simple lighter style, lacking a bit in flavour.

very sweet, with strong lemon citrus notes, mild hops punch, with a bit more of the hops flavor in the aftertaste. a bit too sweet for my taste, but not a bad summer brew.

Looks lagerish with a thin film of head across the top. A sort of musky aged smell to it remiscent of pilsener malt. Not a great deal of hop character at all. Flavours more of the same: malt driven, wet and coldish. Not great, but not bad either.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draft. A light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt as well as hints of hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, metal, and alcohol. A very simple beer - hence boring.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours pale gold with a lasting head.
Nose is grassy and spicy with hints of bready malt. Pretty plain, and thereís also a vegetal note in the background.
More malt shows as a flavour, mainly bready. Very sweet with practically nothing in the way of balancing bitterness. Again, notes of corn and cooked vegies detract from the experience.
Carbonation could be higher.

500ml bottle. So clear you can read through it. Amber and honey in colour topped with a snow white blanket of foam. Aromas of plums and cherries with a mild bitterness and softness on the palate. Easy to drink and would cut through the spiciness of a hot curry nicely.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pale yellow beer creating an enormous head when poured. Sweet bready aromas, maybe a little caramel too. Canít really detect any hop action at all here. Taste is sweet, no bitterness. Rather dull to drink.
