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.

Westchesterco (1163) - mclean, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2015
Poured from a bottle at an Indian restaurant in falls church VA named saffron it is a clear golden color with a slight head. The aroma is malty and the taste is unusual something rather undefinable. Rather unique experience

Iphonephan (3714) - McLean, Virginia, USA - JAN 2, 2015
From a 22oz bottle at an Indian restaurant. Pours a clear copper with an off white head. Aroma of toast. Sweet flavors of grain. Pretty icky.

douglas88 (6488) - Portland, Oregon, USA - NOV 24, 2014
Bottle. Pours a clear yellow color with a small white head after it settles. A big grainy sweet nose. Not good: sugary adjuncts, rain, light metal. Some dirty water. Drinkable.

Pyobon (995) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - NOV 17, 2014
(Bottle) Clear golden amber with slight white head. Slight caramel sweet aroma. Medium bodied, almost sticky. Light to medium carbonation. Sugary sweet with some initial hint of tang and some slight but harsh bitterness towards the finish. Drinkable, but not good.

Sweet carmely thin not very enjoyable. Arab is corn. Obvious corn and sugar is used in this beer. It is tolerable but not spectacular. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

"Bought during the trials (Hayward Field) and drank during the olympics. great name, mediocre beer. eh...mediocre is being too nice. It’s crap, but not nearly as bad as some. Corny, grassy, slightly medicinal...light, watery, slightly refreshing when it’s 98 out. Not much else to say :)"

Aurelius (4443) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - SEP 1, 2014
Muted, slightly tinny aroma. Clear, straw gold. Big fluffy ivory head. Sturdy bomber bottle good label. Sweetish. Oxidized malty notes. Low bittering. Medium body. Nothing much going on here. Glad I didn’t pay $9 in an Indian restaurant for this one. Beer Stop, Tallahassee. Apparently they sell 24 million cases of this in India every year. I doubt my rating is more than spitting in a blast furnace.

TheEpeeist (3414) - Media, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 22, 2014
11.2 oz bottle. My first beer from India and my second malt liquor. Clear orange yellow with slight residual foam. Nose is whole wheat dough and mild grass. Sugar-watery with a soft buzz. Oily finish then papery. Taste is duck sauce, yams, citrus pith and cardboard. Almost 2 years old; maybe better fresher.
