This is fine as a quaffa but way overpriced. Refreshing taste and nice clear colour. Not good value for money.

In the bomber bottle. Typical yellow indian lager. Fizzy with lots of carbonation. Poofy and retreating white head. This seems to be not quite as good as Taj Mahal, but still works with a curry of saag paneer.

Maan, this is just like drinking tap water. No flavors to it at all. Just nice labels. Nice gold color look to it. This beer definately taste pretty bad. No complexity no aroma either. This is a light light light lager. I hate to try the REAL kingfisher light. HAha. Two Oldmonk thumbs down! Waaay down.

This was not skunked. Poured with lots of carbonation and a large white head. The color was a bright gold. The aroma was corn and sweet malts. The taste is slightly sweet. Has a full mouthfeel. As low as this is rated, I was pleasantly surprised.

Couldn’t handle the smell of this one. Seriously, nothing can smell this bad. Nice gold color with light head. Taste isn’t as bad. I had this ice cold and it tasted pretty decent. Nice sharp bitterness. A celery flavor lingered afterward.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. I like the nose. It is skunky and sweet and reminds me of Grolsch in the mid 90’s. Pours straw gold with a fluffy one finger white head. The taste tastes EXACTLY like what I imaginge Alka-Seltzer dropped into a Bud Light would taste like. Very sharp on the tongue, like seltzer. Sharp notes of corn and rice mingle with the sharp carbonation taste. Finish is dirty and kinda tastes like dishwater. This beer is not 100% unpleasant, but it is not good. There is much, much better beer out there.

Whew, now this was just like drinking tap water, bad smell and bad taste. Aroma is like walking through a corn field that has turned. The taste is reminiscent of a really dirty bathroom the aroma completely affects the adjunct ridden taste. I wish I could rate the aroma less than a 1.

Brewed by Shepherd Neame. Very pale yellow coloured. Extremely weak, watery and thin. Probably better than drinking from the Ganges river though.

Pours yellow with a small white head. Aroma is a skunky and adjunct laden nightmare. I mean, even ice cold, it’s really bad. Steeped in stank and sweetened corn notes, this makes for the worse odor I’ve smelled on a beer in a long time. Taste is just simply sweetened corn mixed with carbonated water. Sort of a dryness about it, I guess due to the carbonation. Finish is semisweet. BAD stuff here!

Clear pale yellow with frothy white head. Putrid aroma. Consistancy of water with less flavor than H2O. Indian food? Yum! Indian beer? Yuck!
