bottle - Pours clear yellow with a thin head. It smells like corn, some mild malt, and some kind of aroma thatís just off. There are definitely some adjuncts in this sweet, light flavored beer and while it doesnít quite taste like nothing, I wish it did. It tastes like ass. Well Iíve never actually tasted ass, but if I had, it would probably taste a lot like this beer. I should have drain poured it. Itís not alcohol abuse when the beverage has already been so thoroughly abused by the brewery.

Bottle. Generic? Yes. Bad? Not in my opinion. A typical pale lager with no defining characteristics, but lacking any particular negative quality to make it undrinkable or undesirable. Wouldnít be my first choice but drinkable at Indian restaurants lacking more interesting choices.

Yeasty aroma. Light color and bitter yeast to the taste. Peppery finish with maybe a hint of molasses. Rather disgusting and poorly made.

330 ml bottle - pours pale gold with a thick bone-white head that vanishes quickly. Aroma faint faint malt and corn. Tastes even less than that. Kind of like yellow club soda. Drink it fast, cuz once it starts warming up, things start to get a bit......interesting.

12oz - Aroma of rusty water, honey and pale lager malts. Pous transparent gold with a small head with disappears fast and no lacing. Flavor matches aroma and gets worse as it warms. Palate is thin and bland. A typical boring pale lager. This beer did do itís job of putting out the fire from the Indian food I was eating, so in that respect, it is ok.

Bottle, 66 cl. Pale yellow, medium white head. Quite OK and clean, but weak malt aroma, with a slight citrus note. Thin and watery, and little bitterness. A standard pale lager.

I went all the way to Dehli, India, i thought cool ill have a difrent experience.. taste new beers. And then bam!! i thought i was drinking a Corona or a bud light. Except this was slightly skunkier and lighter bodied. I does finish with a nice metalic twinge folowed by a spitting it out aftertaste!!

OK, Kingfisher lager from New York. Green 12 oz bottle with a twist off cap. When I bought this bottle at my local beer store, in my ignorance I thought I was getting an import. Oh well, lets go for it. When I pop the cap I am surprised there is no skunk aroma, just clean uncooked bread dough aroma with an ever so slight hint of citrus. If I didnít know better, I would think this almost has the aroma of a floral/fruity big ale beer. You know they say with green bottles you quite often get the skunk. This beer is a little darker than your ubiquitous pale yellow american lager and it does have a little haze to it. No head but there is a girdle of white around the top of the brew against the inside edge of the glass. Very nice streams of carbonation rising within, makes this an attractive looking drink. The bubbles almost look champagne like in appearance. Slight bitter hops greet the tongue but not like the oppressiveness associated with big brews or IPA but it is IPA-ish in taste. This beer calls itself the world best Indian Lager and that it has a pleasantly bitter taste. Iím curious of what Indian lager means, is it the same vein as IPA? This has much more personality than the typical pale lager, Iím not sure how it can even be rated in the same style as pale lager. The bitterness is pleasant but may not be appreciated by gentle lager lovers. It seems to have much more of an alky content than what is stated on this site. I still say this is more like a weaker big ale than a lager. I think it may even be more offensive than a pilsner. Nice medium low carbonation on the back of the palate. Tho during tasting this beer comes across with much more personality than a pale lager, the finish is not too offensive nor lingering. There is some bitter medicinal qualities that last but nothing a gentleman can not deal with. Decent beer overall and perhaps a stepping stone for those who want to try beers with more impact than your wonted lager.
