Had this at the bequest of a good Indian friend - he must have been homesick, but I was just trying to be nice after the first sip. He brought this to the party, and I gave him a Ruination 1pt 6 oz. I think I converted him. 5000 was not undrinkable, but I didn’t bother recording any real , color, flavor or other stats on it. Available by the barrel, basically, at Circle in Hopewell, NJ.

Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest ’08. Pale gold. Disappearing white head. No aroma. No flavour. Pretty damn awful as it just tastes of lemony metal. But it did come in a 17 year old girl’s knickers. Long story.....

(Can, Mfg 10/07, Batch 928) Pours a clear golden body with a fizzy white head. Aroma of corn grain. Flavor of corn, metallic, and mild grassy hops. Noticeable alcohol, but the 8% is not apparent.

Can straight from India via a coworker. Pale yellow with a soapy white head. Odd maltish aroma. Flavor grassy and sweet. Better than some of the style I’ve had but that’s not saying a whole lot.

nuplastikk (4126) - Madison, Wisconsin, USA - NOV 6, 2007
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2007 This beer is completely disgusting. Smells way off, tastes horrible. Artificial chemical sugary piss water. Honestly, do not buy this beer under any circumstances. This must be the Indian Steel Reserve. Absolute drainpour.

Soapy light head, "fizzy yellow beer"...pale and lifeless...smells like a cheap beer, sour yeast...pale thin and watery, no real flavor, except well the same sour yeastiness...drinkable but wont buy again...one positive note, the 7% is hidden in this "non-flavor" creation...goes well with the aged Barry Gibbs...this is a chuggle---chug it with a struggle

Bottle. Hmm, could a beer be anymore skunked? The only real points I give this beer is for the clear golden yellow color and perfect white head. Otherwise, horrible.

an aroma that at first seems fruity, but more careful study reveals a chemical or soapy quality something like tropical mr. clean. the taste of course reveals the same....quality (although it is different!). the bitterness that remains is of that same chemical turpentine enjoyable like substance. a bit of tea in there which surely helps to clean up the burp as well as the finish. clever and demoralizing.
