very skunky smell. thin head upon pouring but it disappears in seconds. not much flavour at all, very easy drinking. not much to this beer, i enjoyed it.

Most thrilling chilled! I love that slogan-- very British. Anyway, a nice offering from India, of all places. Makes sense, I suppose, since the British colonized the place many moons ago. Very ’poppy’ and lively. A good session beer on a hot day.

Pours yellow with nice white head that leaves good lacing. Faint floral hops to the nose. Flavor is lager malts with a hint of prune or apricot, and adjuncts - corn and rice flavors. Watery mouthfeel. This is better than most pale lagers.

UPDATED: AUG 21, 2005 Somewhat soapy and weak, yes, but am I the only sonofawhore who noticed this is on some straight-up root-beer-smelling shit? It’s downright spicy. And for that unique twist it gets bonus points. You guys have, like, undeveloped palates or something. Really though, it’s way too thin but at least it has some bittering hops, which is more than you can say for many locals.

Nice light golden colour with a fluffy white head. Sweet aroma with some hops around the edges. Flavour is mild, but decently balanced, with more hoppiness than I expected. Not spectacular, but a step up from a typical international lager. And the bird on the label is really pretty...

Same old yellow lager color. Instantaneously diminishing head. Smells like water. Taste is more bitter than I expected. Real fizzy on the tongue. Another boring lager.

Straight from the bottle, fizzy and watery. Somewhat bitter, but there’s something else going on with the taste that I just can’t put my finger on, but I don’t particularly like. Maybe if I ever taste it again, I’ll rank it higher.
