1.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
I had several FRESH bottles of this while I was in India last week (March, 2005).
Tastes very much like a cheap American standard, though without the strong corn sweetness that ours usually has. Weak, no bitterness, no aftertaste. Not very good fresh, so I would advise drinking it in the states where it might be old and stale.

GREEN bottle poured yellow with a decent head and lacing.
Aroma is malt and corn.
Flavor is sweet, malty and metalic on the finish.
Not toooo bad.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is OK, but just not interesting, not compelling, not distinctive enough. I liked it well enough, but I just donít care to have it again. Plus, the ABV is only 4.8% so chances are I shanít have this one again.

Drink this with spicy Indian food. It works well to wash down the curry, but donít 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 Specialitšten 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 canít 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 donít 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 itís coated with a sweet metallic bitterness. If you donít want to drain pour this one, drink it fast. Very fast.
