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.

Countbeer (4369) - Best of E-Town mit ein Brauhaus, NETHERLANDS - AUG 18, 2014
Bottle: Served in a taster: Medium sized white head on top of a clear golden (yellow) colored beer. Aromas of sweet malts, light hops, light honey, light lacto and cream touch, some iron/metallic and some crisp herbs. Clean aroma, very nice! Flavour is a mix of herbs, bitters, some malts, some cardboard, bit creamy, light grainy, some hay and meal. Aftertaste is hay, bitter, cream, grains and some herbs. Low carbo, creamy mouthfeel, low to medium bodied and a light creamy texture. Fine beer!

Bottle, pours gold with a small white head, aroma is sweet malt, taste is also sweet malt, no real bitterness, but is typical pale lager, predictable and boring.

Aroma of malt and honey. Clear straw colour. Bitter front with honey, biscuit, and malt flavour. Light body with high carbonation. Drinkable, but not interesting.

330 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy golden colour with a medium, off-white head. Sweet aroma of malt, corn, fruit and a hint of caramel. Sweet fruity flavour with malt, corn and a bitter hoppy finish. Light body with a watery texture and soft carbonation. Above average for a lager.

Beer4000 (4433) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2014
650 ml bottle at several location in India. Clear golden body with a white head. Light grainy aroma. Flavor is rather week, mild malty, grainy and not much bitterness. The first sips feels quite refreshing when served ice cold together with spicy food a warm day, but turns out rather boring and one dimensional before you hit the bottom of the bottle. Thin body and short aftertaste. I imagine that the Shepard Neame version is slightly more interesting with a hint of floral/grassy hops bit it’s difficult to tell with no parallel testing.
