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.

jkwood04 (4175) - 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.

(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

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.

monkeychugg55 (911) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - JUL 21, 2012
Super pale yellow with almost no head. The aroma is somewhat usual lager tones with some burnt sugar notes. The flavor is cloyingly sweet, with very little else. Tastes like sugar water.

ccex (961) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - JUN 25, 2012
22 oz bottle came from a good Indian friend who raved about it. Pours a clear light yellow with a small, quickly vanishing white head. Smells like a normal malt liquor. Aroma has sweet hops and grainy malts. Taste is sweet, with a long but clean finish. Body is thin with lots of carbonation. My well-meaning friend gave me what could be a good lawnmower beer or a good fire-extinguisher for spicy food, but I was not impressed with it as a standalone special beer. If it were sold as an American malt liquor, and not "Indian Premium Beer" it would be one of the best.

BillWyce (751) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - JUN 23, 2012
From notes: Poured clear, pale amber with a thin, 2-finger white head. Mild, grassy aroma. Body is light, a bit thin. Light flavor of sweet malt with a touch of yeast.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2013 Received from a beer club: 650 ml bottle. Poured into glass with a pale, yellow color, huge head, lots of carbonation. Smells malty. Not much going on with aroma. Taste is light and sweet. There is not a terrible aftertaste, but not a good beer. Can taste the alcohol (7%). Similar to some of the popular beers in USA, but more alcohol.

Psytron (1396) - Turku, FINLAND - JUN 2, 2012
Drunk in Bengaluru. Malty, sweet smell. Pale golden colour, high white head. Very mild aroma, alcohol strongly present. Sweet aftertaste due to that. Very flat carbon, almost nonexistant. Some malts and metal also to be found.

reebtogi (4402) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 17, 2012
500ml bottle pours a pale golden orange color with a nonexistent head and no lacing. Aroma is sweet malts and mild hops. Taste is malty sweet with a very mild hop presence. Only slightly better than a typical North American malt liquor eg. Big Bear.
