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.

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

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. It lacks some of the bite that you might enjoy with other lagers. but it looks nice and has a decent head. Plus it was cold so no complaints there either.

Pale yellow beer creating an enormous head when poured. Sweet bready aromas, maybe a little caramel too. Can’t really detect any hop action at all here. Taste is sweet, no bitterness. Rather dull to drink.

KapitiCritique (379) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - MAY 21, 2010
500 ml bottle Aroma: moderately yeasty with the smell of bread. Appearance: Pale clear and golden. Frothy head that dissipates quickly and leaves a modicum of lacing. Taste: Sweet, mildly so without being cloying. No real sense of bitterness but an undertaste of sourness and a wee bit salty, just a touch. Palate. Light to medium bodied, thinly creamy, carbonation is like a glass of Alka Seltzer that sat out too long. Finish is short and yeasty. Overall: Nice, not memorable, better than a lot on tap here but I can see it going with spicy foods as advertised.

500ml bottle. Crystal clear rich golden hue, nice fluffy white head but it quickly diminishes. Aroma is predominantly nice honey, with a bit of cereal and passion-fruit and faint pine. Flavour is medium-heavy honey sweet but not cloyingly so. Medium body - more than any other lager I have had, texture is initially creamy becoming almost syrupy. One of the best pale lagers I have had, would be even better with more hops presence. Went well with a Thai curry

I’m starting to regret buying a 6 pack of mixed Harringtons beer. Some OK and as many have been very poor. This is poor. No aroma and just a sweet, vaguely lager-like maltiness to distinguish this from lemonade. Yellow rather than golden. Just a tiny taste of hay, like a luke warm Heineken that you opened an hour ago and only decided to finish because there was no beer left in the fridge

Slightly cloudy with a very fluffy head. Not much aroma, a bit of bakers yeast and citrus that also comes through in the flavour. A bit sweet, but generally nothing exciting. Too boring to justify craft beer prices.

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.
