1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Light yellow color, lively carbonation. No head. Mildly hoppy aroma. Watery start in flavor, ends with skunky and hoppy tones and some carbonation. Crispy mouthfeel, flavor is bad. Skunky flavor lasts.

Light and evanescent foam. Yellow, limpid color and not a lot shining. Light and lean scent. Little bitter taste with a watery finish.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
White head on a pale yellow body. It looks and tastes like an ordinary lager, no more. Good to quench thirst and on a hot day, but otherwise no exceptional taste experience.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
A corn and malt aroma. The appearance is a pale yellow color with a moderate head. This beer might be a doable lager if it wasnt skunked like damn Pepe LePew. A decent malt background followed by some rank shit. I think I just burped up a metal pipe. Hmmm no thanks fellers.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml bottle. Pale yellow colour with a thin fully diminishing fizzy white head. Grassy and light honey aroma. Sugary sweet initial flavour with a faint floral bitter finish, light bodied but not watery. Not as bad as expected.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml green bottle. Poured pale gold with a weak head. Malt and grass hop in the aroma. Nice note of hop bitterness overtop some crisp malt.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale coloring is un-exceptional.
Aroma has a hint of malt but not much else. Taste of malt with a little hop follow for bitterness. Not that appealing, but the best indian beer I’ve tried.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
All the indian beers I’ve ever tried have had a weird smell. Kind of strong and hoppy without a clear crisp nose. Its not too bad a beer though, a bit flat and quite a strong hoppy flavour. Good for drinking with curries and so forth I guess but nothing really special.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
A small pale white head sits atop a very pale yellow body. Aroma is zesty and clean, slight hints of citrus, sea-foam and straw. A dry, hoppy play upon the tongue and mouth, with a short, but nice finish. Light in body, texture, and just about every other way. Compared to other lagers of this type, it’s one the best. Just enough flavor to make it palatable, but it’s real purpose is to wash down the heat of hot and spicy food and keep those tastebuds cooled for the next onslaught. If you want boldness in body and flavor, you’re barking up the wrong Bodhi tree.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured clear light gold with a lasting white head. Light sweet malt aroma fading to metal shavings as it warmed a little. Flavour was pretty similar, though dry in the finish. Not very appealing.
