1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours a somewhat pale yellow, no head even with a stiff pour. Smells decent enough for an Indian beer- bright and crisp and adjuncty. The aroma is non-committal flavor-wise, which is just as well because the beer underperforms in that department. There is a distinct flavor here reminiscent of licking a painted wall, and not in a way that goes well with Indian food. The detectable presence of hops on the finish is partially redemptive, but I was definitely expecting something less bad from H5k.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
26 mar 2012, bottle. Light yellow, clear, steady bubbles. Soft aroma: green apples and hay. Thin body and fizzy. Tastes like a sweet lager with some alcohol background. Not great but surprisingly light for an 8% beer. This certainly has its place in Indian cuisine.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle/650ml - Pours a clear golden yellow in color... like any "good" pale lager would. Almost no head and what there was faded to nothing... very low to non-existent carbonation. Aroma is slightly sweet and, unfortunately, but not surprisingly, of a small amount of grassy hops and lots of fermented corn/adjuncts. Flavor is more sweet than I expected with the slight flavor of honey or, more likely, HF corn syrup. Some sourness in the finish. Little in the way of hop flavor or bitterness. From India or not... just another poor quality mega-brew in my opinion... File under "Glad to have tried it *once*"

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle. Poured pale with a quick, fizzy white head. Aroma of honey, corn, and a hint of citrus. The flavor found honey, grain, and a light metallic backing. Light body, watery, and a light malt aftertaste.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Slight aroma of breakfast cereal. Flavor is a very delicate corn, wheat, pale malt. Clean taste, on the sweet side, not so much on the pilsener side.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Yellow pour with frothy white head. Perfum, corn, and an almost harsh vanilla/gas aroma. Sweet corn followed by a sour funk, then a hinto abv harshness. A more of a sour finish than a bitter. Thin and foamy body. Just not much. It does look like a beer.

3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottle. Pours with a small sized white head over a clear pale gold body. Very little aroma to speak of. Taste is malt dominant-bread, honey-with a slight herbal hoppy background and finish. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. I had this at our local Indian restaurant and it goes a treat aginst the spicy warmth of Indian food.
