1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Crisp, yet grainy with a hint of sweetness. A solid session beer and easily one of the better Indian beers I’ve had. A good brew to have with chicken and fish appetizers. Not much complexity or hops of note. A simple beer but effective for what it is.

1.2 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.
