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.

Chugged as part of an idiotic bet. Overly carbonated. Wheatgrass and skunk. Really not overly terrible.

Bottle poured into a snifter. Pours a clear pale gold with minimal head. Aroma of corn and grains with a hint of skunky. Taste is medium sweet. Corn and grains with minimal skunk. Light bodied with a slightly sticky texture. Lively carbonation and a longer than expected finish. Overall, not bad. Nothing I would seek out but I’ll enjoy the bottle I have.

Bottle @ home, fucken a bronus courtesy of BlackIPA. Cheers bro! Pours a clear yellow appearance with a thin, disappearing white head. Big metallic, corny, grainy, boozy, light apple aroma. Watery yet tangy apple, chewy corn candy, metallic, herbal flavor. Not good.

brokensail (10547) - Orange County, California, USA - OCT 23, 2013
Half liter bottle @ the Indian restaurant with lunch. Yum a dum dum! Clear golden pour with a short lived white head. Aromas of corn, booze, sugar, and apple juice. A bit of malt and grain. Light skunk. Flavor is quite sweet. Big sugar, corn grain, and apple juice notes. Light booze and skunk. Not good, but nowhere near the Old Monk.

Poured from 330mL bottle. Clear straw yellow with white head. Grainy yeast aroma with mild skunk. Taste is a sweet cereal (like cheerios with added sugar). Light body.

8/26/13. Giant bottle at Passage 2 India. Love random ticks. Dark golden pour with a small off-white head. Light aroma, straw and floral aspects, a hint of apple, not nearly as offensive as expected. Light flavor, straw, hay, a touch of apple and floral aspects. Went down well with my spicy chicken vindaloo.
