Had it with Indian food. A bit on the bitter side. This one is not so good. It’s a very standard, on the dull side, pale lager. But if the food is very hot, it’s pleasant..

Bottle. Green means dead in the water. skunky grassy mossy taste in a straw yellow. Only quenchable with Indian food!

Bottle. Pale yellow colour, slim white head. Aroma of corn, some hops. Same for taste. The usual "OK with a curry" holds true.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Funky pungent aroma that is somewhat chemicals melling, but defies proper description. Pale yellow. Small white head. Very watery, but has a corn/grain and mild (not as sweet as many pales lagers) malt profile. Flavor is more appealing than most pale lagers I have had from other countries.

wow, a really light gold with a thin white head. smells of rubber, vomit, and pvc pipe all rolled into one.taste is rubber cement burning paint thinner like fusel notes with a tarp quality. am i getting through the overall petroleum based product taste this has. it is unsettling. it reminds me of the cheap plastic toys i had shoved in my mouth as a wee babe by my sadistic older siblings. at least this crap doesn’t leave scars, just a crappy aftertaste of corn and vomit.

I traveled to India for work and they all raved about KingFIsher. This is almost a drain pour, I think it might be slightly better than Budweiser but thats about it. While I love the food in India, the beer is best left for the cows....

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Bottle. Light light brown color. Thin head. Prominent malty aroma and flavor. Mild to moderate sweetness. Not much in the way of hop aroma, flavor, or bitterness. Very forgettable.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 From reading other peoples’ descriptions I find it hard to believe I was consuming the same beer, although I saw it come out of the bottle. This one was certainly a lot better than I was expecting of a "best-seller" (usually that’s a codename for bland). This beer struck me as comparable to many of the German pilseners, and very similar: rich and complex grain taste. Very bitter and hoppy--good hop flavour. Generally flavourful and complex. Not heavy and not sweet. Almost too yeasty. From taste alone I would not have guessed this to be a mass-produced beer.
