A Mes rate:
Bottle in some curry house somewhere...
Aroma and flavour overload this is not. Mild and gentle (read whimpish) all round. Nothing offensive about it really just bland bland bland. Better than water with the curry I suppose.

333mL bottle. Not my favourite pale/tropical lager. Very thin head and taste. Lots of straw/grassy taste here, but very clean, dry finish, no bitter aftertaste. Light body but no real sweet flavour you’d expect, only a very faint hint. Had a few times at restaurants, sometimes almost sourish/metalic. Disappointing for the style of this beer.

On tap at Olde Saratoga Brewing Co. Way out of balance and over-malty. Couldn’t take more than a sip. Not recommended whatsoever.

A thin bodied watery lager, a mild metallic flavour. Cheap, light, drinkable with a thin texture.

UPDATED: APR 5, 2012 Bottled at Cph Beerfestival. Pale golden with a white head. Clear, and low on Co2. Weak aroma and flavor of malt and some hops. Decent body for a pale lager. Uninteresting, but it probably serves its purpose in hot India. Rating: 3-2-3-3-8-1.9. 060519
Can. A clear one, pale golden in color and with a small, white head. Fruity and grainy nose with some grass. The flavor is sweetish and reminiscent of the juice from some canned pears or something like that. Pale malts, generic fruityness and the faintest bitterness too. Quite thin on the palate, decent carbonation. Well, drinkable, but utterly boring. 20120405

NOt very nice, but it has some alcoholic features. Like Whiskey but not exactly.

Pale (and i mean it!) yellow colour. Decent white head, diminishing though. Sour-ish, citric, malty nose with hints of canned corn and hay. Flavour is somewhat malty and slightly sour with some unpleasant metallicness. Finish is alcoholic. Thin bodied and watery.

bottle. Golden color. Aroma of straw, hops. No head Very light bodied. Not much flavor. The only redeeming thing about the beer was that it was decently bitter so had an ok finish.

From tap many nights at Styx in Bangalore, India. Yellow, clear, adjunct beer factory beer. It’s one of the few you’re going to find in South India. I recommend taking up smoking while drinking this beer, to mask the slightly salty finish & dirty alcohol flavors. The bottled version will showcase the sanitizer - look for the star san-like rainbow bubbles when you open it. That’s not necessarily very appetizing! OK if you’re in India and there’s nothing else.. Otherwise there’s not much reason to drink this.

Bottle - slight grassy/malty nose. Very pale gold with a few white bubbles - very like dishsoap. Some malt in the flavor with a clean, dry finish. Not great, but not horrible.
