(330 ml bottle, brewed by Shepherd Neame, England). I have probably used this beer to wash down some Indian food in England, had to buy it again in Norway to rate it without food (by special order, it's normally sold only in our Indian restarants). Besides being wet and thus fit to help you survive a hot curry, this beer has nothing "Indian" or any other quality that should put it on a beer geek's wish list. Light golden colour, low head, Heineken-like aroma, uninteresting flavour but at least a hint of bitterness. Typical mediocre lager, not good, but not as bad as I expected.

When am I going to stop even buying these "exotics" in their fancy green bottles....ahh another to the compost bin. This one neveer even made it to the glass it smelled so badly like skunk.

I poured this one, turned to look at the TV for a moment, and turned back thinking that someone was conducting a urinalysis in my pint glass! Seriously, I feel I should be testing whatever the Hell is in my glass for the presence of disease, drugs, or pregnancy...anything but drinking it! This is one awful beer. I could have paid MUCH less to drink some Old Style...and at least it would bring images of the Friendly Confines of Wrigley Field, instead of those lovely Hindu-Muslim riots or children letting flies land on their eyeballs. I could go on, but I think I've adequately conveyed the horrific nature of this "beer."

Golden straw colour with strong head, the beer is well carbonated. Grain'y/corn flavour. It doesn't taste anything like the German or Czech largers. It it good for putty out the fire of a dodgy vindaloo though.

hotstuff (4069) - Indiana, USA - APR 10, 2003
Nothing special about this brew in my opinion.I found it to have a somewhat of a bitter taste to it and it is a brew that went down rather smoothly.

thedm (4935) - Fort Wayne, USA - APR 10, 2003
UPDATED: JUN 4, 2003 This brew poured a small white head of small to medium bubbles which left a small lacing as it receded. It body is a transparent light amber orange color. It's aroma is a mild hoppy one and it's taste is a bit carbonated and like a typical lager with a slight bitter aftertaste. There is nothing really noteworthy here, but it is a good all around drinkable brew.

Choke (96) - Massachusetts, USA - APR 1, 2003
i though this was a very good beer, little head, good taste, not to much of a bitter after taste like i expected,,,,but $9.00 a six pac...i dont think so

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 29, 2003
Clear gold w/ slight head (sort of looked like pond scum). Mildly fruity, malty nose, perhaps a hint of hops. Light feel. Some malt, some hops, nothing special.

Ungstrup (29217) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - MAR 29, 2003
UPDATED: JUL 14, 2003 Not as good - the second time around. ------- A yellow beer with no head. The aroma is very bitter and the flavor is primarily hoppy and then sweet - a very fresh beer, like a czech pilsener - but not quite as good. An above average pilsener

Urggg, Very skunky smell and taste. This beer, was bland, watery and not a nice after taste. I hope India produce better beers than this! If not stick to making Curries Boys.
