1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 3/20
This is really not a good beer at all. Weak yellow color with virtually no head or effervescence. No aroma. Insipid, uninspired flavor. I poured most of this one out.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Updated: Mildly skunky with some light grassy hop notes. Quite light in flavor - some very light sweet malt (corn?). Mildly bitter finish. Tinge of skunky flavors around the edge. Straw gold color with small fading head.

Golden colour. A bit skunky/metallic in the aroma. Smoothe sweet flavour, that stand up well to a nice indian meal.

1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
I expected this to be total crap, but it is drinkable. Slight skunky aroma, some malt in the flavour and a few hops in the watery body. There is a lot worse, thats for sure.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light and crisp in taste and appearance. Very carbonated, skunky aroma (green bottle). Dry finish. I should have had some Indian food with this but I had it at a weekly beer tasting.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not bad. It tastes pretty good, but nothing special. My bottle claims it’s made in Saratoga Springs, NY. I don’t know what this India stuff is all about. Nothing special. I’ve had this beer a hundred times under a hundred labels.

Golden with nice white head. Sweet malty aroma. Flavor is pretty mild, essentially no bitterness. Very wet, but smooth.

A fair lager. It’s smooth, which works well if you drink this with Indian food.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
A lager lager. Pale gold color, small head. A light bodied lager. Light malts and hops. Light flavor, nearly sort of bland, but well-balanced and nice taste. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter. An OK lager, but there is a touch of green bottle skunyness.

1.3 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
golden colour with quickly disappearing head. thin. sweetish malt. for a beer recommended to go with full flavoured curries it’s quite bland. close to no hops. the label says ’most thrilling chilled’, I didn’t find it thrilling in the least. bleh.
