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.

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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2014 Can. 4.8%. Best before 17.06.15. Brewed at Kaiserdom Specialitäten Braurei Bamberg. Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head. Good lacing. Slight citrusy tart aroma, with a light hop note and a remote plastic note. Sweetish as it warms. Further warming brings out a pecualiar note, which I can’t put my finger on, but which seem to be a mixture of light notes of hay and cardboard interwoven with maybe some yeast, dark fruit and rubber. Maybe. Not really doing it for me though. Flavour is sweetish and a bit tart, with hops and a light plastic note. Bitter finish, with a hint of the same peculiar note as in the aroma, and a lingering tart note. Grainy note as it warms. A bit too much carbonation. Overall better than I expected, if nothing special, but considerably better than the last time I rated it; however, I don’t know if it was made by the same brewery back then, not if it was a licensed brew at all. 03.10.14.
Old rating: 3 / 1 / 3 / 2 / 6 =1.5
Bottle. Pale, pale yellow coloured with a fast disappearing white head. Dominant citrus aroma. Flavour is... well, peculiar. Tar-like, I think. This works in dark beers, but not in a pale lager. A bit of a surprise, though. Watery palate.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Golden color and minimal head. Skunky aroma. Sweet malty flavor typical of this style, slightly bitter finish, but not in a pleasant way. Drinkable, and relatively innoffensive, but not one to drink often (if ever again).

1 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
FROTHINGSLOSH, the rater immediately prior to me for this "beer," echoes my sentiments: "This was my first and last time trying this beer." Golden and headless, it smells like a skunk eating cotton candy. A touch of malts and corn syrup hit the tongue, and then it’s coated with a sweet metallic bitterness. If you don’t want to drain pour this one, drink it fast. Very fast.

1.4 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
UPDATED: JAN 20, 2011 This was my first and last time trying this beer. The green bottle is of course a warning. Very few acceptable beers come in a green bottle. This one poured a dark amber color with a large soapy white head. The aroma is typical macro swill. The flavor is typical macro lager with a bit of skunk. The only good thing that I can say about this one is that it survived getting a bit warm better than most macros. ANY BREWER WHO CONSENTS TO PUTTING THE BEER IN A GREEN BOTTLE SHOULD BE BANNED FROM EVER BREWING AGAIN!!!!!!!

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2006 Oh, Indian night for me too eh? This is from the bottle and as far as lagers go this is OK. A bit bland but still one of those Euro clone beers that you can drink, much more so than the local drops these days.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
One of the better beers from the subcontinent. Perhaps it’s the result of drinking it with too many late night curries (and I love curries) but I have a soft spot for this. Nothing very complex about it. Lager gold colour, brief head. Bit of malt on the nose, little else. Thin body. Some fruit on the tongue, more malt than hops. No terribly good reason to enjoy it but I do. (Bottle)

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale yellow, fizzy white head. Mild aroma, sweetish malt. Fairly bland flavor, but inoffensive, tiniest bit of malt and possibly some hops. For as lacking as it is, there is actually a bit of a mouthfeel. Sure it wasn’t good, but it really wasn’t that bad.
