(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.

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.

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

really nothing stood out or seperated itself with this beer from a slew of other mediocre lagers. malty flavor fairly carbonated with a light to medium finish. alcohol was slightly present.

extremeicon (112) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - NOV 21, 2007
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 Iíve had but thatís not saying a whole lot.

pours a light clear gold with full white head. light malt aroma. hop presence with noticable sediments. sweet, nice finish, light and not that bad.

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.

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.

Canned. Pale yellow coloured. Clear. Dense white head. Canny, light metallic sweet and fruity aroma. Flavour is quite sweet and light grassy. Has some sugary and fruity notes. Medium bodied. A bit dry. Has an alcoholwarming sweetish end. Alcohol is quite well hidden.

Large bottle. Not offensive, but nothing is here thatís really good or special in any way. At best it is mediocre. Alcohol presence is not that noticeable. Strong malt flavors and thatís just about it.
