2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUL 31, 2006 Oh, Indian night for me too eh? This is from the bottle and as far as lagers go this is OK. A bit bland but still one of those Euro clone beers that you can drink, much more so than the local drops these days.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
One of the better beers from the subcontinent. Perhaps itís the result of drinking it with too many late night curries (and I love curries) but I have a soft spot for this. Nothing very complex about it. Lager gold colour, brief head. Bit of malt on the nose, little else. Thin body. Some fruit on the tongue, more malt than hops. No terribly good reason to enjoy it but I do. (Bottle)

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Pale yellow, fizzy white head. Mild aroma, sweetish malt. Fairly bland flavor, but inoffensive, tiniest bit of malt and possibly some hops. For as lacking as it is, there is actually a bit of a mouthfeel. Sure it wasnít good, but it really wasnít that bad.

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.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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 Iíve tried.
