Bottle at an Indian restaurant. Typical pale lager. Light bitter grassiness. Sweet malt and corn like flavors. Drinkable but not notable. Nothing really unpleasant.

Bottle, at The Paradise Indian restaurant. You eat curry. You drink lager. Pale, cold and wet. End of story. Almost indistinguishable from Cobra. Not sure I can bring myself to drink this on its own to get a clearer view of its intrinsic qualities. Any Eastern promise is negated by the fact that the UK version is brewed by Shepherd Neame. Which is a little surprising as I see the Indian company is part of the Scottish & Newcastle empire. More surprised that I had not rated this before. So even the office Christmas curry yields a tick.

Marko (4953) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - DEC 21, 2006
Kingfisher Premium Lager Beer, 0.33l green bottle brewed by Shepherd Neame in the UK, purchased at that odd Indian store in Graz.
Poures a golden/yellow colour with a small head that went away really fast... rice and some hops in the nose. Ok malty taste, some rice, a bit "dusty" and maybe just a bit "eggy", some fine but very weak hopiness in the background and aftertaste. Didn’t impress me at all, but still a lot better than Thunderbolt.

Immediatly skunky european hops scent. Pale straw yellow pour. Thin head with high carbonation. Thankfully the skunkiness doesn’t come out as much in the flavour. Still grainy and waterry, even a bit grassy. This is a slight hop undertsone that is some what pleasant.

UPDATED: DEC 19, 2006 MMMMMmmmmm curried Chicken and rice with spicy samosas on the side. Apu (his real name) sold me a 6er of this at the rip and run next to the Indian food take out here in town. As many have said, a bit average but still has its fine points. Fuller bodied than most pale lagers fits very well with Indian food.

[Sampled at various places at the subcontinent, all the way from New Delhi to Kovalam Beach, Kerala, South India] Memories is brought to my mind and I have to give this beer some credit for the best travels in my life. Indeed this beer is just mainstream, but as with many objects in India, you’ll like it later on anyway. It’s the beer to be sampled at indian restaurents if they have no IPAs.

Not a very distinctive beer. It screams US macro. If you close your eyes you’ll think its a Bud.

Saarlander (1686) - Saarlouis, GERMANY - DEC 11, 2006
Had on my flight from LA to Frankfurt on Air India. Drinkable to say the least, but abit corny, seems a tad above an American Macro. Slight bitterness.Canned. ok drinker, but nothing great.

Minor head consistency and not much in the way of flavor or aroma. Although a surprisingly refreshing beer.
