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

Foxbush (1704) - Richmond, Virginia, USA - MAY 13, 2013
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.

Smells grainy, raw and strong. Looks innocent enough. Sweet weird malt taste, not artificial so much as unfinished. Very smooth at least, in the same was a mellower US malt liquor, rather than stinging like the meaner ones. Feels heavy in the gut however. Surprisingly inoffensive for a cheap beer. Hard to believe the country’s best seller is this strong. A Miller product via the South Africa merger no doubt, which is probably how it wound up on my desk.

chinchill (3794) - South Carolina, USA - MAY 6, 2013
650 ml undated bottle poured golden yellow; ample carbonation; short-lived off-white head leaves a lasting ring. Aroma is not bad but can be described as a slightly skunky lager. T – starts sweets and finishes mildly bitter. A hoppy lager in which the higher ABV is too apparent in the flavor. Has a pretty good finish. M – Higher carbonation; too much tingle as a result of higher ABV plus carbonation level. Medium body. ABV also makes this slightly harsh. O – Average quality, more or less, in a high ABV macro-lager.

This might be popular in India... but it isn’t popular here. This is a boring "domestic" beer experience for me. It does have some subtle sweetness going on there, but not barleywine sweetness. This would be a good food beer, and I can see myself drinking a gallon of this by the pool. Glad we got the chance to try it, but not my favorite flavor. Oh, and it’s a malt liquor. Fun!
