3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bottled. Golden coloured, mediumsized white bubbly head, which disappears quickly. Sweet malty aroma with hints of caramel and a bit hoppiness too. Nice bready malty flavour with hayish dryness in finish. Wellbalanced taste.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
My sample of this bland and inoffensive little beast was brewed under license in Auckland, New Zealand. Tasted from the bottle and poured into a Pilsner glass, a typically clear pale straw body sat below a fluff of white foam (that dissipated quickly). Lemon and grassy hop aroma, with minimal sweetness. A carbonic bite in front overshadowed the sweet, candi sugar and lemon citric palate. Very thin bodied and overall light in flavour, this one falls quickly into the ranks of International ’bland and boring’ Lagers. Forgettable.

Bottle. Brewed under licence. Looked ok when first poured, but head died away VERY quickly, good colour tho’ Average palate, grassy nose, rather bland really..suppose it would be ok with a curry, had this when I was cooking pasta!

1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I had several FRESH bottles of this while I was in India last week (March, 2005).
Tastes very much like a cheap American standard, though without the strong corn sweetness that ours usually has. Weak, no bitterness, no aftertaste. Not very good fresh, so I would advise drinking it in the states where it might be old and stale.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is OK, but just not interesting, not compelling, not distinctive enough. I liked it well enough, but I just don’t care to have it again. Plus, the ABV is only 4.8% so chances are I shan’t have this one again.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
Drink this with spicy Indian food. It works well to wash down the curry, but don’t even think about this beer on its own. Its a bland lager with no real surprises. Crystal clear, no head.
