COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A clean refreshing lager, moderately hopped. Brewed using only the finest natural ingredients. The result is a smooth Indian lager that is the perfect beer to enjoy with spicy foods.

Ungstrup (29332) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 9, 2011
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.

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

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.

Bottle. Nice pure white head on top, that laces well. The nose is sweet and grainy. The palate is more creamy, a good example of an indian-style lager. I’d happily team it with a spicy palak paneer.

Davros (1939) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2011
Pours pale gold with a lasting head. Nose is grassy and spicy with hints of bready malt. Pretty plain, and there’s 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.

Jimthechap (1652) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 29, 2011
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.

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.

bozoNZ (719) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 25, 2009
330ml Bottle. Soft clear golden but not alot of head - could be my 2nd hand glass. Graing sweet aroma, soft talcum powder too. More grain, a touch of maltmeal and some honey. Nice sweetness in the malts. Spritzy carbonation. Surely the best NZ curry lager on the market at the moment...?

It’s a lager, and actually quite a good example of one, but at the end of the day it is still a lager.
