1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Not unpleasant malty-hoppy aroma spoiled by a watery, vapid taste, finishing dry and unpleasantly astringent. Not good.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours clear blond with very low white head. Minimal lacing. Aroma is of corn, cheap malt, sugar. Taste is of corn, cheap malt, slight bitterness, some stale hay. Palate: Light-medium body. Medium carbonation. Overall: Forgettable. Nothing to see here. (Scratch that: India tick)

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle (330 ml). [Brewed under license in US, but from what I understand it has been aliased here... still a weird way to get an India country tick so feel free to delete]. Thanks to Andrew for this bottle. Clear yellow with a small white right of foam. Aroma is of corn and herbal notes along light sweetness and skunky notes. Taste is similar with a little more sweetness. Light body. Watery. Soft carbonation. Clean. Not offensive at all. I could see myself be able to drink a full bottle of this.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Ładny lacing, piana szybko opada, ale nieco jej pozostaje. Kolor złoty. W aromacie mokry kartoni lekki diacetyl. Pozostawia nieco nieprzyjemnego posmaku, ale w miarę jest pijalne.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
(Kingfisher Premium Lager) Bottle 330 ml at home, poured into a glass tankard. ABV 4.8%
Deep golden yellow colour on the body, small white head, thin, with average retention, leaving good lacing around the glass.
Aroma is heavy on malts, not much else.
Taste also very malty, straw, cardboard.
Medium body, carbonation with a bite.
Below average, maybe on a very hot day.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
Wygląd lagerowy, barwa złocista, piana niewielka. Zapach specyficzny, wadliwy. Smak podobnie. W Indiach warzyć piwa nie umieją.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle. Aromat z lekką wyczuwalną szmatą, piwnicą, chemią, Ale słód też czuć. W piwie pływają lekkie drobinki "czegoś". Ale w smaku dosyć dobre.
