1.9 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Funky pungent aroma that is somewhat chemicals melling, but defies proper description. Pale yellow. Small white head. Very watery, but has a corn/grain and mild (not as sweet as many pales lagers) malt profile. Flavor is more appealing than most pale lagers I have had from other countries.

wow, a really light gold with a thin white head. smells of rubber, vomit, and pvc pipe all rolled into one.taste is rubber cement burning paint thinner like fusel notes with a tarp quality. am i getting through the overall petroleum based product taste this has. it is unsettling. it reminds me of the cheap plastic toys i had shoved in my mouth as a wee babe by my sadistic older siblings. at least this crap doesnít leave scars, just a crappy aftertaste of corn and vomit.

I traveled to India for work and they all raved about KingFIsher. This is almost a drain pour, I think it might be slightly better than Budweiser but thats about it. While I love the food in India, the beer is best left for the cows....

Bottle. Light light brown color. Thin head. Prominent malty aroma and flavor. Mild to moderate sweetness. Not much in the way of hop aroma, flavor, or bitterness. Very forgettable.

UPDATED: MAY 23, 2007 From reading other peoplesí descriptions I find it hard to believe I was consuming the same beer, although I saw it come out of the bottle. This one was certainly a lot better than I was expecting of a "best-seller" (usually thatís a codename for bland). This beer struck me as comparable to many of the German pilseners, and very similar: rich and complex grain taste. Very bitter and hoppy--good hop flavour. Generally flavourful and complex. Not heavy and not sweet. Almost too yeasty. From taste alone I would not have guessed this to be a mass-produced beer.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 24, 2005 Bottle (330ml) At a very nice Indian restaurant, Mt. Everest, Toronto. My taste notes were - avg head, white, diminishing - spare lacing - clear - light yellow - light malt, caramel, nutty - very light hops, celery, lime - no yeast - weak palate - soft carbonation - metallic finish - light everything. But hell, itís just another lame-ass international lager, on the weak side of fair for its class. Washed down the Tandoori nicely, thatís all

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: DEC 10, 2010 Bottled. A pale lager indeed with a sweet artificial taste and aroma. Really quite nasty and poorly brewed. Stick to wine, water or better still lassi in the curry house. Score 0.9
Subsequent rating scored 2.4. Average becomes 1.6

Basicly just another half ass pale lager, which has nothing going for it bar it may get you drunk if you had enough of them.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
UPDATED: JUN 21, 2005 Pretty standard mass marketed lager. A little more hop in the finish than some North American pale lagers.
