sloshgator (625) - Orlando, Florida, USA - OCT 15, 2012
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.

From the bottled poured a golden brew with a generous white head. Aromas and flavors of honey, malt and hops.

cadilhac (6) - Quebec, CANADA - JAN 1, 2016 does not count
No head, aroma of caramel and boozy rhum. Taste is way too sweet to distinguish anything, maybe some wood. Aftertaste of alcohol once the sweetness fades. Overall some sugar packed sparkling drink with alcohol. Beer? No, not sure.

McWorta (1196) - LUXEMBOURG - DEC 21, 2015
Clear deep yellow-golden colour with a small white head. Aromas of cereal, malt, caramel and metal off-flavour develops. Averagely carbonated, cloggingly slick with a alcohol laden body. Sweet is the main theme here. Clogging sweet finish.

jmgreenuk (6517) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - OCT 22, 2015
Can from Drops Total Spirits, 100 Feet Road, Bangalore. Poured a crystal clear straw colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is malt, yeast, some alcohol. The flavour is moderate sweet with a rich, grainy, mineral alcoholic palate. Light bodied with lively carbonation. I feel sorry for Indians.

kermis (8508) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - OCT 22, 2015
Can shared thanks to Jmgreenuk. Pours clear golden with a big white head. Aroma of nasty boozy chemical alcohol, grain and bad sweet malt. Flavour is over moderate sweet and light moderate bitter. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation.

If this is 4th percentile, I would hate to try anything in the first 3 percent. Tastes like corn alcohol and sugar. Flat. Probably best served in a brown paper bag.

KoRoBeNiKi (138) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2015
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.
