1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Straw color with a moderate plastic looking, off-white head. Grass and grain in the aroma. Sweet watery liquid. A vary grainy sweetness, no real malt qualities found. Search party sent out and have not returned. Mission for hops was aborted, with lack of return of first party. Believed to be somewhere between Bangalore and Sarasota. Perhaps in Libya looking for O.E.A. Lager Beer.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Brewed in saratoga springs NY under the supervision of UB. I cant remember the last time I had the kingfisher from India but I do remember that it wasnt that good. This is certainly not very good either. Very pale straw color, high carbonation and small fading head. Aroma is stale malts, herbal earthy slightly skunked hops. Flavor is very bland with some malt and adjunct like crappiness. Finish is slightly tart and crisp.

Cheaper than its Indian bretheren, Taj Mahal, and usually both available in Indian dining establishments, I felt that the Kingfisher tasted better. The color was a dark shade of gold and possessed a small to moderate froth. On the by and by, an average beer. Flavor was malty.

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.
