GT2 (7875) - Carlsbad, California, USA - MAY 31, 2009
650 mL bottle in Darjeeling. Pours a clear gold with high carbonation and a short lasting, soda-like, white head. Aroma of alcohol, rice, straw, light tropical fruits (mango/pineapple). Taste is very sweet, cloying alcohol, sweet corn, and cereal grain. Watery body. Sweet, alcoholic finish. Not offensive but not recommended.

madsberg (9650) - Søborg, DENMARK - APR 12, 2009
UPDATED: APR 15, 2009 Bottled in Darjeeling, West Bengal. Golden coloured. Clear. Dense off white head, which is quickly diminishing. Alcohol, grain, straw and light fruit in the aroma. Flavour is sweet, grainy and a light touch of rye bread. Very alcohol dense. Thin bodied. Alcohol totally dominating the end.

omhper (18949) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - APR 5, 2009
Bottled in Kolkata, West Bengal. (Brewed by UB, Kalyani, West Bengal). Clear golden, brief head. Fruity nose with sweaty pineapple and alcohol. Sweet and fruity with mushy but soft mouthfeel. Diesel mixes with overripe fruits. Mild alcohol finish. Drinkable, but not enjoyable.

presidentchaos (21) - Worthing, ENGLAND - NOV 25, 2007
A sister beer to Kingfisher, with all the same quality attributes. Good colour, but the head does disappear quickly.

javatestcase (8) - USA - JUL 28, 2007 does not count
I think Kalyani may be the best beer label in India. Even the strong seems more like a beer despite the Malt Liquor designation. Very nice color and tone, certainly not quite international standards yet, but it’s better than most!

trapped (603) - TURKEY - SEP 14, 2005
The best Indian beer I’ve tasted. Alcohol content did not seem above the others though it’s supposed to be stronger. Clear, goldish color, smooth and light palate

MIBRomeo (2492) - Wisconsin, USA - AUG 3, 2005
clear yellow tons of carb bubbles small white quickly dissapating head. Rotten eggs and stale rice smell carbonated water in your mouth and a flavor of light weak malt stale corn and a touch of yeast. Bad reminds me of budweiser.

   AROMA 2/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 4/10   PALATE 3/5   OVERALL 10/20
tomciccateri (987) - Albuquerque, New Mexico, USA - JUL 4, 2005
650ml bottle from a road-side stand. 8% 14-degree "strong beer". A clear gold color with lasting white head. Noticable sweet pale malt flavor and actually smooth mouthfeel. A slightly sweet, alcoholic finish. Overall, for a "strong beer", a good falvor balance and drinkable in the 110-degree heat.

TBone (11902) - Pori, FINLAND - MAR 19, 2005
Bottled 650ml
Golden, small white head. Light flowery nose. Light palate. Slightly grassy, faint rice flavor. Watery.

ravidesai (940) - Bombay, INDIA - AUG 10, 2003
very decent beer. more of a standard lager than a malt liquor. nive clean slighlty sweet taste with a lingering bitter hoppiness.
