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.

Clear straw with a small head that disappears quickly, no lace. There are fine bubbles rising, but nothing else of interest. Taste seems more like corn than malt, somewhat sweet; carbonation appears, but isn’t able to balance. I suppose this would work on a hot day, but not if I am wanting to savor it. Not recommended.

Indeed, very pale in color with a decent head. Smells of brisk wet hay with a touch of candy. Medium nectar with good carbonation. A malty brew, slightly sweet. No bittering on the finish. Actually not bad when compared to those eastern european strong lagers. This one actually tastes fresh, not old world skanky.

Bottle sample at a tasting at Ariel’s place. Thanks Tom L. Clear golden. Aroma of acetone and a bit of DMS. Sweet flavor, a bit honey-ish, with a bit of graininess, acetone and alcohol. Light-bodied. Yuck.

Meh, not terrible but not much better. A bit fruity and watery, not my cup of tea.

Not much to say pours light gold. Aroma of malt, not much hoppiness. Crisp carbonation and thin mouth feel -- rated via 'Find A Beer' for Blackberry 10

22 oz bottle The beer poured a pale blond color with a small head and lacing. The pale lager had a light aroma with a very light citrusy nose. The beer had a dry mouthfeel with some sweetness. The medium body beer had average carbonation. The lager had ordinary bitterness with smooth finish. this enjoyed at an Indian Restaurant . It was a nice fit for the spicy food.
