Big but unimpressive white head. Stinks like a skunk. Some malts also. Light gold in color with minimal carbonation. Flavor is thin but not offensive. Slight bitter aftertaste. Blah in a bottle.

Run of the mill beer. Nothing good about it but the flavor isn't offensive. Mild bitterness at the most.

Second-best (?) of the Indian beers that I have tasted. Not so good. Given that I own Mendocino Brewing common stock, that is a strong statement...

Only purpose this serves is to quench the fires from a spicy Indian dish. Generic lager from the Generic Beer Recipe cookbook, executed poorly.

Much like Sapporo in a sushi bar, the Indian restaurants tend to push this "homebrew". There is a bit of bitterness to it, but three days after tasting one, I am hard pressed to remember anything exceptional about it.

1.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Upon initial bottle opening, very skunky aroma. Gets slightly better on taste, with only a slight hoppiness. Somewhat light in texture. Mediocre.

0.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 4/20
Bad. Real bad. Skunky, sour taste. Would have been a drainpour, but I'm too cheap to waste beer in most cases. Don't even think about this swill.

A friend of mine gave me this from India (along with a Taj Mahal). Can't say I'm impressed. Pretty bland, not much flavor or color.

Bottled, pasteurised. Pale yellow with gassy head. Overcarbonated malt beer with little flavour or character. Used to wash down a curry rather than tap water, both would have done.
