bitbucket (2160) - Kirkland, Washington, USA - MAY 9, 2006
Bottled, the version brewed in Saratoga Springs NY. Pours a pale clear amber with a lacy white head. The nose is citrus, slightly grassy. The standard lager mouthfeel. Some spicy hops malt and fruit in the taste wity a dry, lingering finish. This beer just has more hops than you would expect in a lager. If you were looking for an IPA, but the tavern had only Bud, Coors, Miller and this - choose this.

pootzboy (1653) - Hawgville, Ontario, CANADA - APR 28, 2006
First time tasting the macro euro lagers sold as Indian beer. This one pours a light pale straw colored lager with enormous soda pop carbonation bubbles...weak head lasts seconds and disappears.....nice aroma floral saaz/noble snap in the aroma, like Beck’s but with undetectable malt. Weak body, sandy, dry crisp mouth feel.....Fast bland but clean flavor, a wee bit of lemony hop mixed with drying brewer’s rice tastes and overpowering carbonation...fast dry clean finish. A very bland, dry rice beer tarted up with some pilsner aromas.

Beerdedone (2981) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 24, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours yellow/golden with a white head. Aroma of grain, water, sweet malts. Flavor is bad, didn’t enjoy not even macro worthy.

warriorx99 (85) - USA - APR 22, 2006
Bottled. Pours a yellow color with a little head. It’s a light bodied beer with a sweet taste to it. It’s a little too thin for my tastes. Good, but not great.

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.

JRHBrew (366) - Fredericton, New Brunswick, CANADA - MAR 29, 2006
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.

sanmiguel (118) - Illinois, USA - MAR 21, 2006
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.
