Super Strong Beer
Indiaís 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.

Hazy yellow with a thick white head. Mildly sweet corny aroma, with a taste that predictably follows. One of the better indian products. $2.50/650ml

Really not a great lager but for 7% hides it taste really well. Probably better than most american macros but not by much. Really like on the hops and not too bitter.

Apu (his real name) sold me this one at the local quickie mart, and quite a salesman he is to this day. A nice strong lager that is fantastic with pizza. I agree with the other posts that this has a longer lasting body than most brews. Alcohol presence known but not eyeball turning. Try it if you can find it.

Cobra (1100) - - OCT 28, 2006
12 oz. brown, longneck bottle. Bottled on 07/12/05, Batch #127. Not a fresh sample then, huh? Poured out a light straw yellow color, with a thin white head. Very clean aroma, but sulfury yeast smell. Not much flavor either. Slightly sweet, not much else going for it.

Virtually no aroma at all. The appearance is a clear gold brew with nice carbonation and a poor head with no lacing. The palate lasts longer than a normal American lager. It actually reminds me alot of a typical american mal liquor. The beer has a stronger sharp flavor. Contrary to the commercial deScription, I taste very little malt in this beer.

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - SEP 28, 2006
good straw color,small white head that had a short hang time then faded to leave nothing behind.The aroma was grainy and cerealish with some lemon grass and hops.The flavor was nothing like the aroma with a grainy taste some metallic tinge as well as a bit of hops.Unbalanced garbage and drain pour imo.

With over 10 million cases sold annually, I hope most of them are staying in India. Macro India beer I assume. I like the alcohol content ícause the beer isnít anything to be happy about. Medium bodied lager that isnít distinctive at all. Slightly drinkable; moreso if you already have some in your system.

Pour like a US macro-smells like a US macro-tastes like a US macro, but stronger-like concentrated miller lite with more peppery alcohol which is definitely something i dont want to taste in a more concentrated offering-i say light because there is also a highly chemical corny sweetness present. Really far from good.

330 ml bottle. Yeah, like Iíd save this in the event I ever reach 5000 ratings. Pours at least with a burnished gold lager color, but no head. Smells syrupy and pretty old. Taste is pretty much the same way. What alcohol is there is kind of harsh. Not much else here to recommend it. Does come in a nice thick bottle for mailing to homebrew competitions.

scraff (2121) - Baltimore, Maryland, USA - AUG 11, 2006
Off the bat - this still beats the crap out of any AB product. Clear sparkling gold, thin fizzy white head. Nose was full of honeyed grassy hops, light pepper, and hints of corn. Flavor was one in the same with a decent peppery hop tone to balance the sweetness. Borders malt liquor, but no matter. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation, clean, honey pepper finish. Goes well with my curry chicken...that I am only thiniking about right now....
