Haywards 5000, Indiaís first genuine stout beer , is handcrafted from a rich blend of the world famous Caledon valley dark roasted barley malt along with a blend of imported and locally produced pale malts.

My favourite beer when I need it to get me pickled.
Take 6 of these whoppers, punch your taste buds with the hottest curry you have ever tasted and instantly enjoy the ensuing hours simulating what it feels like to be an alcoholic for over 40-50 years. My only regret is it's extremely hard to get in Australia.

I had a 650ml bottle at a restaurant w. company, so my comments are general and may be corrupted by Indian food, but Iíd have to say that Iíve found a really fine Indian beer. Nicely aromatic, strong at 7% alcohol, a nice deep gold color w. sweet, fruity, full flavor. Great complement to the food.

One of Indiaís largest selling strong beer with 7%. This beer taste like malt liquor. Head is average. Very stron aromatic. Light carbonation to keep you from getting gassy and bloated. Definately goes well with tandoori and other sorts of spicy Indian food!!

12 oz bottle from Dís in Pittsburgh. I see that the ratings are kind of low, but I liked this one for what it is. Had a nice lingering taste that stayed with you and was pleasantly smooth overall making the experience above average. Try it yourself and give it a fair chance.

26 mar 2012, bottle. Light yellow, clear, steady bubbles. Soft aroma: green apples and hay. Thin body and fizzy. Tastes like a sweet lager with some alcohol background. Not great but surprisingly light for an 8% beer. This certainly has its place in Indian cuisine.

Haywards is an Indian lager with some flavor and body. Sweet maltiness that isnít too bad for an Indian restaurant. Nice amber color with fluffy head that dissipates quickly. Served in an big 1 pint 6 oz bottle.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours with a two-finger head that leaves a ton of lace. Very pale yellow color. Light carbonation. Nose is hay like in a barn. Starts and finishes sweet. Light bodied. So far my best beer from India but this is only the fourth. The label has this "manufactured" by Skol Breweries. $1.95 for a 330ml bottle.

Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is sweet. Taste is sweet with a slight hop flavor. Refreshing and pretty decent for a lager. Went well with the Indian food.

Itís not bad...a big imperial lager. Listed a 8% on my bottle. Malty heavy, not too macro tasting sweet finish. Better cold no doubt though.
