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.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
The malt liquor of india. Bottle from an Indian restaurant in Salzburg of all places. Pours a golden color with a small white head. Fruit and grain in the rubber aroma. Sweet malt grain in the flavor and in the finish. There is a light metal finish but not so powerful that it makes the beer worse. Not bad...for a malt liquor.

1.1 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 2/20
Found in my local Indian Restaurant
8% on label
Straw gold color, bright white head that falls to a collar.
Nose is massive corn, stalk, creamed, you name it. Lots of malt, very sweet smelling.
Taste is very sweet. Mostly canned creamed corn, some stalk, and grain. Sickly sweet and a decent amount of booze in this. Paired well with the food but could not stand up on it’s own.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pretty thick and cheap tasting beer. The high alcohol content made the beer but it is still Indian swill.

2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasted several times at a local Indian restaurant (Sahib). Not spectacular, but certainly not bad for what it is. Slightly sweet and strong at 8%, it pairs well with spicy fare.

Lots of diacetyl on the nose and taste. This unfortunately made the beer undrinkable. I dumped it after the first sip.

3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
650ml bottle shared between myself, my wife and son-in-law on 7th May 2015 along with two other Indian lagers at some random Indian restaurant in Laguna Hills, Orange County. Clean golden pour with a good white crown on top. Sweet malts rule the nose and taste with a pleasant alcohol kick (bottle claimed 8% ABV) within the flavours. The best of the three we tried on the night.
