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.

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.

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.

Davros (2810) - 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.

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.

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.

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

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.

varanid99 (1031) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2016
Pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit of cardboard, some lemon and grain. Taste is thin, slightly bitter, a little sour, and quite watery. It’s not really pleasant at all.

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.
