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.

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.

Thanks erzengel!?!? Pours a typical yellow with almost no head. The smell is corn, sweet malt, cardboard and alcohol. The taste is sweet malt, corn syrup. Light/medium in body with active carbonation. Yuk!

From what I read, this is the largest selling of the numerous horrible Indian ’strong beers’. And it is a dreadful, smelly concoction. I cycled through and over the Himalayas a few years ago, and although the normal Indian beers are pretty dreadful, I did drink more than a few. One thing I avoided were these ’strong beers’, where any pretense of being flavorful or enjoyable is thrown to the wind in pursuit of higher ABV. Occasionally, in the mountains, this was the only thing available, and I found that, cut 50/50 with Sprite, I could get one or two down after a long day in the saddle. Seriously not recommended.

Atom (1212) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - FEB 15, 2014
Bottle via Krampus from BoostIPA, pours a mostly clear golden with a small white head after an aggressive pour. Aroma of sweet corn, grain, and pennies. Taste like corn soaked in soap nasty sweetness into bitter vegetable compost.

jackl (3862) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 5, 2014
Bottle from Beer Run. Pretty sweet addition to the selection. The pour’s medium gold with a big white head. The nose is pretty sweet. Loads of honeyed cardboard. Maybe some sugar cookie. The taste is crass. Strong chemical burn. Nasty. Not worth investigating further. Medium body, very fizzy. Very poor.

BoostIPA (1105) - Pouring Bus, New York, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Very clear yellow pour via a 12oz boostle from bytemesis. Thanks? Here we go... Malt likka from India. Aromas of creamed corn, DMS, lotta cooked veggies. Sticky sweet. Very low carb. Finishes extra sweet with a note of fuck you. No.

DrewFace (482) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle share thanks to Homer321. Ms. Homer says "Hayward ya blow me?" Very clear golden color. Aroma of corn adjuncts and some spicy phenols, likely some type of curry. Pretty smooth, corn adjuncts, sweet sugary malt, not a bad likka.

Homer321 (994) - Rock Ridge, Florida, USA - FEB 2, 2014
Bottle thanks to bytemesis. Crystal clear yellow with small white head that dissipates quickly. Nose full of corn but not overly skunky or grapey or appley. Not much to the taste other than a touch of make behind the sugary adjunct flavor. Mostly corn. Some alcohol noticed in the finish. Pretty solid.
