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.

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 (131) - 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.

fletchfighters (1275) - AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2015
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.

Pretty thick and cheap tasting beer. The high alcohol content made the beer but it is still Indian swill.

JDW1976 (15) - Johnson City, Tennessee, USA - JUN 13, 2015
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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Lots of diacetyl on the nose and taste. This unfortunately made the beer undrinkable. I dumped it after the first sip. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

BlackHaddock (4991) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2015
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.

DrGD (108) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2015
Bottle in New Delhi. Clear golden colour with medium white foam. Aromas of malts and alcohol. Taste is watery and metallic, a bit sweet, malts, harsh bitterness. Drinkable.

R4N5H (369) - SINGAPORE - MAR 27, 2015
650ml bottle, purchased in Singapore, poured into a tulip glass. Pale clear golden colour with a medium sized white head which quickly dissipates. Grainy malt aroma. Sweet tasting lager.

trapped (1441) - New York, TURKEY - MAR 22, 2015
Bottle. Pours pale yellow with small foamy off-white head, yeast aroma, medium carbonation, sweetish taste, abrupt finish, slightly sticky residue. Not too bad.
