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.

Bottle @ Ristorante Tara, Milano. Aroma poco intenso, metallico, poco maltato, luppolo industriale. giallo dorata limpida schiuma bianca grossolana poco persistente. abboccata, maltata, poco amara. metallica. Abbastanza equilibrata, poco armonica.

Beer4000 (4405) - 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.

Tap in an Indian place in san diego pours pale yellow hue with a small fizzy white head and sparse lacing. Nose is sweet adjunct cream corn and grains. Some cereal shows up in tbe flavors with some cream corn as well. Very sweet and grainy finish. Cool I got to have an Indian brew!

laiti (5567) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 18, 2014
33 cl bottle (4,8%) @ Samrat, Helsinki. BBE 30.04.2015
Aroma has butter, starch and corn. Flavour has cardboard, starch, hints of butter and grainy malt. Too much cardboard tones, as bad as Finnish bulk lagers.

MiP (13525) - Sønderborg, DENMARK - JUL 9, 2014
Can, 4.8%. Sour and grainy aroma. Clear golden colour. Big stable white head. The flavour is bready and slightly grainy. Has a faint aroma hop note, but that is quickly gone.

hockeybeerguy (1633) - Juneau, Alaska, USA - JUL 8, 2014
I had this bottle poured into a pint glass. The appearance was a clear light yellow color with a super light carbonation rising few and far to a softly dissipating white foamy head. The smell had some light sweet fruity notes over top of some light sweet malts. The taste was mainly sweet and adding in a bit of sweetened corn in the flavoring. There was a quick dry finish. On the palate, this one sat pretty light and had a pretty good sessionability about it. Concerning how the carbonation felt, well, honestly as a premium lager, there’s nothing bad to say about but nothing spectacular about it either. Overall, this is your standard premium lager that doesn’t show anything bad about it nor does it show anything to be a standout.
