COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Super Strong Beer
India’s largest selling strong beer, poised to be the number 1 brand in the country, with an annual sale of over 10 million cases. Smooth tasting yet with a malty flavour and enjoyably strong.

DeanF (1662) - Nunavut, CANADA - JAN 4, 2010
Found in Bandipur, about 125km northwest of Kathmandu. Explosive pour, foam everywhere. Have to protect my cigars! Zero head after all that, nothing left after mopping up the overflow. Boring yellow. Absolutely no aroma; maybe some alcohol and corn, actually, but barely noticeable. Given the "strong lager" tag on this one maybe that’s a good thing. Barely any flavour? Yes, barely any flavour. Probably lots of rice used in the mix, very smooth, no alcohol, no grains, no hops to speak of in spite of what’s advertised. Good for getting drunk. Not for enjoying a brew.

altonbrownd (3756) - Brussels, BELGIUM - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle brought back from Bangalore by parents. Light golden colour with minimal head. Skunky nose. Taste of malts, mainly, some paper and sweets. Hoppier finish. Not great but also not as bad as the ratings.

Pale blond color. Light aroma, very light citrusy touch and plastic. Dry mouthfeel, very light residual sweetness, rare for a Lager. Ordinary bitterness. Poor.

troopie (2292) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Bottle. Poured pale orange gold with thin fast dissipating white head. Aroma is malt and something else, possibly an adjunct. Oily body with a bit of malt and an alcohol burn. Hot finish, with more alcohol. Oh well, it’s a beer from India

fonefan (34232) - VestJylland, DENMARK - DEC 8, 2009
Can 500ml.
Clear medium yellow color with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head. Aroma is light moderate malty, toasted, mistreated malt and hops like they want the last drop out of it, light to moderate hoppy. Flavor is moderate sweet and light bitter with a average to long duration, alcohol - phenoel. Body is medium to light, texture is oily to watery, carbonation is soft, finish feel is light alcoholic.
