UPDATED: NOV 8, 2014 Rerate: In an Indian restaurant and decided to try this one again. Lot worse this time than I remember. Appearance is fine, but no aroma. Body is good, but almost no taste. Not very enjoyable. ------- Haywards is an Indian lager with some flavor and body. Sweet maltiness that isn’t too bad for an Indian restaurant. Nice amber color with fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Served in an big 1 pint 6 oz bottle.

Bottle shared by John. Pours clear gold with white head. Nose/taste of tortilla chips, corn, pepper, chemicals and metallic cardboard. Lighter bodied.

rocbyter (1926) - Waterbury, Connecticut, USA - OCT 10, 2012
Light tart and sweet aroma with a light amount of grain. Light clear golden color with a small white head. Very light beginning with a mild bitterness in the finish. Palete build in the finish.

Cybercat (3786) - Georgia, USA - SEP 19, 2012
Aroma is crisp, malty and a little fruity - typical, but at least OK. Pours a clear, rather wan yellow - not too good, but at least the white head is thick and somewhat persistent. Flavor is - not outstanding, but for a pale lager, a snip or two above average. Malty and fruity, satisfying. Texture has OK body and OK fizz. Overall, fair to middlin’. If not great, at least potable. Good for a party, or with a meal.

PorterPounder (5959) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - AUG 18, 2012
Portland, Or - John’s Market place - 11.2 oz bottle. Light gold pour, soft white head, light lacing. Aroma is skunky and grassy. Flavor has some wet paper bag essence, some sour corn notes, a bit of honey sweetness. Odd, cluttered mouthfeel. Was not expecting much.

tone77 (256) - Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 2, 2012
Pours a pale yellow color. Smell is of grains, corn. Taste is off, metallic and medicinal. Overall a subpar beer.

jkwood04 (4443) - Connecticut, USA - JUL 29, 2012
Big bottle in a lager glass. Pours golden with an off-white head. Aroma of pale malts, alcohol, and light hops. Flavor the same, with a little alcohol on the finish. Light to average texture. Not the best beer.

thorongil2 (1492) - , Ontario, CANADA - JUL 29, 2012
(can) clear pale yellow with extremely tall white head, watery palate; aromas of corn and bit skunky, simple flavour, unattractive, gets worse as you drink it

ken1 (1155) - DENMARK - JUL 29, 2012
A nice bitterness and some sweetness. Not very alcoholic in flavor despite the high alcohol content. Amber in color with a quickly fading white head.
