Straight from the bottle, fizzy and watery. Somewhat bitter, but thereís something else going on with the taste that I just canít put my finger on, but I donít particularly like. Maybe if I ever taste it again, Iíll rank it higher.

From a bottle--pours a clear wheatish color with a thin head. Slightly skunky aroma. Light & effervescent body. No overwhelming taste though it finishes slightly bitter. Goes down nicely on a hot day.

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.

Couldnít handle the smell of this one. Seriously, nothing can smell this bad. Nice gold color with light head. Taste isnít as bad. I had this ice cold and it tasted pretty decent. Nice sharp bitterness. A celery flavor lingered afterward.

Bottle. I like the nose. It is skunky and sweet and reminds me of Grolsch in the mid 90ís. 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.
