Had it with Indian food. A bit on the bitter side. This one is not so good. It’s a very standard, on the dull side, pale lager. But if the food is very hot, it’s pleasant..

Bottle. Green means dead in the water. skunky grassy mossy taste in a straw yellow. Only quenchable with Indian food!

JonMoore (1957) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2005
Bottle. Pale yellow colour, slim white head. Aroma of corn, some hops. Same for taste. The usual "OK with a curry" holds true.

caesar (5499) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 16, 2005
Clear light yellow color, short white head. Aroma of corn, some faint hops. Taste of corn, slightly bitter.

Funky pungent aroma that is somewhat chemicals melling, but defies proper description. Pale yellow. Small white head. Very watery, but has a corn/grain and mild (not as sweet as many pales lagers) malt profile. Flavor is more appealing than most pale lagers I have had from other countries.

wow, a really light gold with a thin white head. smells of rubber, vomit, and pvc pipe all rolled into one.taste is rubber cement burning paint thinner like fusel notes with a tarp quality. am i getting through the overall petroleum based product taste this has. it is unsettling. it reminds me of the cheap plastic toys i had shoved in my mouth as a wee babe by my sadistic older siblings. at least this crap doesn’t leave scars, just a crappy aftertaste of corn and vomit.

I traveled to India for work and they all raved about KingFIsher. This is almost a drain pour, I think it might be slightly better than Budweiser but thats about it. While I love the food in India, the beer is best left for the cows....

GeneralGao (3614) - Iowa City, Iowa, USA - JUL 30, 2005
Bottle. Light light brown color. Thin head. Prominent malty aroma and flavor. Mild to moderate sweetness. Not much in the way of hop aroma, flavor, or bitterness. Very forgettable.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 From reading other peoples’ descriptions I find it hard to believe I was consuming the same beer, although I saw it come out of the bottle. This one was certainly a lot better than I was expecting of a "best-seller" (usually that’s a codename for bland). This beer struck me as comparable to many of the German pilseners, and very similar: rich and complex grain taste. Very bitter and hoppy--good hop flavour. Generally flavourful and complex. Not heavy and not sweet. Almost too yeasty. From taste alone I would not have guessed this to be a mass-produced beer.
