0,33L bottle. Usual yeast,hop aroma. Taste is normal hoppy little yeast. Quite normal hops, quietly sweet and quietly sour bitter hops. Satisfying. Easy to drink.

sebletitje (9075) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2016
33cl bottle @ Brussels Indian Foodfest Aug 21st 2016. Dorée au col blanc. Arôme est assez basique pour les pale lager outre Europe, et à la fois décevante car certaines régions offrent des profils qui sont parfois intéressants. Le nez est métallique, malt pils avec un houblonné modéré, rappelant une base encore plus insipide que la Heineken. Palais est léger, cris avec une base malt pils et rétro de grains laissant une certaine amertume en fin de bouche. Houblonné est moyen, noble allemand offrant peu en terme de caractère. Dommage surtout pour un pays comme l’Inde qui dispose d’un énorme potentiel niveau cuisine pour refléter ce dernier dans la bière.

Moravius (1076) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2016
Flasche (33 cl) von Jenny Lou’s, Peking. - Muß zugeben, daß ich dieses Bier nur gekauft habe, um einen Länderpunkt für Indien zu machen ... - Arg dünne Brühe, mit fruchtigen Aromen, welche die aromatische Leere bemänteln sollen. Statt Hopfen dumpfe Fehlaromen. Wenn das "India’s no. 1 premium beer" ist, kann ich mir die restlichen "Premium"biere aus diesem schönen Land ja sparen ... (Verkostung: 13.8.2016.)

Decent refreshing stuff with a curry. A little heavier on the carbonisation. Not very remarkable, but a good choice nonetheless in thirsty situations.

KoNrRiI (1181) - Århus, DENMARK - AUG 8, 2016

0.33 bottle.
A clear, gold color with a small, white head. A sweet aroma of dough, pale malts - not too bad. A sweet, malty flavor once again featuring dough - decent for a pale lager. A light body, a slick texture, and a lively carbonation. Finish is medium long and also doughy. Overall the beer is quite standard, nonetheless better than a vast proportion of commercial pale lagers.

explosivedog (183) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 6, 2016
330ml bottle. Pours gold with a thick creamy head. Lots of malts and a little bitterness. It?s not at all special, but it goes down very easily with a curry.

WingmanWillis (133) - Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2016
Bottle at Taj Mahal in Wellington, Shropshire. Pours clear gold with a good white head that remains. Aroma is grass, malts and a little straw. Taste is very malt forward with a little grass on the finish. It’s OK and an India tick.

Pint on draught at an Indian restaurant. Standard crap lager, grainy aroma, little flavor, nothing notable about it.

bierkoning (12274) - La Tropica, NETHERLANDS - JUL 29, 2016
Bought @ a Lidl, label says brewed in Edinburgh. But no doubt the same recipe. Golden color. Soft grainy aroma and flavor. Hint of apple. Short sweetish aftertaste. Not good.

BenL8 (60) - SWITZERLAND - JUL 29, 2016
Bottle at Monkey Bar Bangalore. Very pale golden colour, basically no head. Aroma is a mystery to me - even for a crappy lager it has really no aroma to speak of. Hints of sugar water maybe. Taste is not much better. Very little flavour, very mild and some faint hop aroma. I definitely didn’t come all the way to Bangalore for this...
