Consumed from a bottle at an Indian restaurant, so I couldn’t really see it. Through the brown glass, I can see that it is light in color and quite clear. The aroma is lager yeast with a touch of malts and hops - not unlike many a continental lager (aka not-quite-Pilsener). The flavor of this lager was actually quite decent: the balance is on the malts, unlike many other lagers which have more bitterness. The flavor was clean and malty and tasted like an all-malt beer (unlike many American pale lagers). The finish was crisp and subtly balanced by noble hops (I saw another commenter indicate Saaz hops, but it was not strong enough for me to identify). Overall, I was impressed - I wasn’t expecting much at all, and what I got was more pleasing than to me than a Heineken or Warsteiner would have been (generally, the pale lager style is one of my least favorites). I was somewhat surprised to see such a low score here at RateBeer - 0.2 points lower than Heineken and 0.8 points lower than Warsteiner.

Nothing really remarkable about this lager, but nothing bad to say about it either. I’ve only had Kingfisher at Indian restaurants, and it has put out the fire after many a madras and vindaloo, so it does something right!

Sweet, mild, slightly spicy; a little toasty with a lingering Saaz finish.

WeeHeavySD (3379) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 17, 2007
Draft, Brick Lane Indian Place on East 6th in NYC. Gold appearance with a 1 finger bright white head. Aroma is lagery all over. Taste is light with a slight hop bite ever so slight. Overall decent lager, nice to have it on tap.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - AUG 14, 2007
Tap, Spice Lounge, Oxford. Pale yellow gold, fairly persistant white foam. Dill and sawdust aroma. Flavor has hints of herbal hops, pepper. Aggresive carbontation, a bit of lingering chalk. The sort of beer that is marginally refreshing if served very cold, but not because of any intrinsic merit. I think this is sort of promoted as the beer to have with curry, which is such a shame--no real hope of standing up anything with serious spice. IPA anyone?

Very hoppy, bitter, grassy, tinny taste. Won’t be buying this one again. Glad I only bought a single.

pale golden with white head, voila, a brew from idea. the aroma is decent, but the follow up isn’t quite up to it.

bottled, at an Indian restaurant in Dover. Low carbonation, tiny head, malty nose. Malty flavour, not very full-bodied.

Weak color, aroma and flavor. Hint of corn. Helps wash down food, that’s about it.
