Yellow in color with a small head. It was very carbonated. There was a very strong aroma of yeast. It was a little skunky in taste.

330ml bottle poured apple juice with a shook-up 7-up head. Very clean, crisp lager. Tiny amount of skunk to both the flavour and the smell. I have a bit of a cold, I may re-rate if I notice a difference when I am sans sickness.

TheDiceMan (5) - Gold Coast, AUSTRALIA - MAR 29, 2006 does not count
Ok just poured and opened India’s #1 selling Lager, Kingfisher Premium, and I must say it smells damn fine, poor head though. Quite a pale beer, also known as ’Blonde’, and I can taste the hops over the malt. I had this in the freezer for a good 10 minutes before cracking and while it has a distinct flavour compared to our usual Aussie beers, I wouldnt want it to be any warmer. Would probably be quite sickly straight out of a 4 degree fridge, but at around 1 degree its not bad. I’d drink it again.

UPDATED: MAR 23, 2006 Kingfisher had a grassy, citrus , and a light hoppy scent to it. It had a malty taste when supping it, and the lingers for a little bit in the mouth. I had another bottle of this the other night, and it had an rather unpleasant, bitter finish. Had it ice cold. Decent lager, and a had a rather colorful label. Recommended ice cold.

Bottle. I was afraid that this would be skunked like the prior Indian beer’s I’d had. But, this was better. Clear and more like a mexican pilsner. Little head and very little bitterness. It did have a funny, almost metalic, after taste. Perhaps it spent too long on a container ship.

This description by Frank ohansen sums it up pretty well: "Boring, No surprises here. Pale yellow colour with a small white head. Not much aroma, not much taste." Was decent with Indian food. I gave it higher marks than him, and enjoyed it somewhat.

Bottle. Small head taht fades quickly. Plain lager with no distinctive features. Maybe a little more malty than average lager.
