2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
with a name like haywards 5000 I had to try it. aroma has a hint of corn a tad sweet, not much taste, a bit sweet, If this is Indias version of bud or coors then they should consider themselves lucky. For a 7% pale lager it is not bad.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
No balance whatsoever. Corn syrup followed by a foul alcholic flatness. Like mytho. Reminds me of the rocket fuel of my youth. Truely dire.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Fairly sweet lager with a crisp flavor. Dark golden in color with simple head. Nice balance and refreshing.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Golden with some effervescent streams, but no head save a white, scummy film. A few dashes of peppery particulate. If any beer could truly rate a "1" in appearance here we have it. Aromas were interesting to say the least, but pretty darn awful: PlayDoh & grass with charcoal and exhaust. After I finished cussing out Cornfield for providing me this gem, I took a sip. Not too horrendous with some floral sweetness, but the finish was industrial with corn-syrupy and notes of fuel. There were times that I detected plastic or leather (my wife asked, "Pleather?" and I’ll go with that). Aftertaste was of Blue Chloraseptic®. When I try a new beer I expected my senses to be entertained, but this, THIS was a culinary Grand Guignol.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled, Delhi, India. Golden larger that struggled to form and hold a head. Sweat malty aroma. The flavour has body and the first in some time to do so. This isn’t the worst beer on the planet but don’t travel to Delhi to get it. Short on the palate it’s not rewarding but doesn’t offend either.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Strong initial corn flavor along with a very pronounced metallic finish. Mild hop bite. Can’t seem to overcome the tinny aftertaste. Corn adjuncts very pervasive throughout. A bit watery in texture. Decent alcohol kick...reminds me of a malt liquor in some ways.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
A surprisingly drinkable brew, despite the initial corny sweet aroma. Clear yellow with continual bubbling and a good lacing head, It does come across a bit thin - odd when considering the 7% abv. It’s got a bready malt taste and a light bitterness which is part herbal hops, part metal. The finish is sweet and definitely metallic.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottled. Pale yellow colour, big white head, which disappears quickly though. Strong alcoholic sting in aroma, with weak malts also present. Easy to drink, due to wateryness. Wateryness is also the weakness in it. Alcohol nowhere to be fount in flavour. Weak malts is there as well as some weird sweetness, could be a mix of sugar and vegetables or something. Could be good with Indian food, otherwise not. A bit oilyish palate.

oOu know, for a lager I like it. Its thicker and better flavored. Certainly the best by this Indian company (which turns out to be owned by Miller) I’ve had. But still not good.

I had this at the Jaipur in Fairfax, va. Served in the 650 bottle. This was better than I thought it would be. Pretty much yellow and fizzy. The aftertaste reminds me of something a lambic would have. Goes very well with indian food.
