Ok just poured and opened India’s #1 selling Lager, Kingfisher Premium, and I must say it smells damn fine, poor head though. Quite a pale beer, also known as ’Blonde’, and I can taste the hops over the malt. I had this in the freezer for a good 10 minutes before cracking and while it has a distinct flavour compared to our usual Aussie beers, I wouldnt want it to be any warmer. Would probably be quite sickly straight out of a 4 degree fridge, but at around 1 degree its not bad. I’d drink it again.

Bottle - average size foamy head, dark straw color, full bodied balanced aroma and flavor with bready malt and fruity hops, not bad for what it is, definitely better than I expected ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From bottle at an indic restaurant. Typical macro lager. Malty, grainy, cardboard. Lightbodied with a good amount of carbonation. Boring but not bad.

labeerinthum (571) - Milano, ITALY - OCT 8, 2016
Bottiglia. Il gusto al naso finisce sull’orzo. L’intensità olfattiva è flebile e la persistenza olfattiva è corta. Il cappello di schiuma ha una discreta resistenza. Le bollicine si dividono tra quelle a grandezza grossolana e quelle a grandezza media. La carbonazione è bassa. La consistenza del liquido è limpida. Le bollicine sono medio-fini. La carbonazione è media e persistente. Il colore è giallo dorato carico. Il corpo è medio e acquoso. Alla lingua arriva il dolce medio e l’amaro moderato. L’intensità gustativa è normale e la persistenza gustativa è corta. Le sensazioni boccali finali sono di facile beva. Il finale è semplice. Il retrogusto è sfuggente. In bocca l’aroma riporta sentori di pane e orzo.

Aromat słaby słodowy, piana- niewielka, w smaku głównie słód, bez większych wad. Goryczka niska. Mimo tego ciężko się pije, ma jakis nieprzyjemny posmak.

caribou43 (655) - Chavannes-près-Renens, SWITZERLAND - SEP 8, 2016
When I stayed in India, I had the opportunity to drink this beer a couple of times. There is nothing extraordinary about this lager, it could be ok with the wet weather in India. The body is yellow, thin and white foam, regular carbonation, sone malt and hop but it is boring, metalic and watery side.

Cimbasso (772) - - SEP 4, 2016
Sampled from a bottle, brewed under licence by Heineken in Edinburgh. Typical euro-lager. Aroma of grains and a taste dominated by corn syrup. High carbonation and low bitterness. Taste is quite poor. OK with a hot curry - otherwise, forget it.

[backlog] 15-01-15 / bottle at North Indian Cuisine, Sydney. Well, good to drink lager with spicy indian food. But to watery. I started rating my beers with Untappd and a few basic notes. Now I want to rate them on ratebeer. So my rating sometimes lack some information. Just ignore it, it is for my personal statistics. Untappd-Rating 3/5

Una cerveza de la India un tanto extraña. En lo personal me dejaba un sabor seco al final de cada trago.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - AUG 21, 2016
33cl bottle @ Brussels Indian Foodfest Aug 21st 2016. Dorée au col blanc. Arôme est assez basique pour les pale lager outre Europe, et à la fois décevante car certaines régions offrent des profils qui sont parfois intéressants. Le nez est métallique, malt pils avec un houblonné modéré, rappelant une base encore plus insipide que la Heineken. Palais est léger, cris avec une base malt pils et rétro de grains laissant une certaine amertume en fin de bouche. Houblonné est moyen, noble allemand offrant peu en terme de caractère. Dommage surtout pour un pays comme l’Inde qui dispose d’un énorme potentiel niveau cuisine pour refléter ce dernier dans la bière.

Moravius (1131) - Berlin, GERMANY - AUG 15, 2016
UPDATED: OCT 11, 2016 Flasche (33 cl) von Jenny Lou’s, Peking. - Muß zugeben, daß ich dieses Bier nur gekauft habe, um einen Länderpunkt für Indien zu machen ... - Goldgelb mit leichtem Grünstich, blank; wenig Schaum. - Unauffällige Nase mit schwachem hellem Malz und blasser, zarter Herbe. - Antrunk wäßrig dünn mit milder Malzsüße, leicht fruchtig und schwach plastikartig. Durchschnittlich rezent. Im Abgang sehr schwache, aromaleere Bittere, etwas dumpf und mit metallischen Zügen. - Arg dünne Brühe mit limo-ähnlichen fruchtigen Aromen, welche die aromatische Leere bemänteln sollen. Statt Hopfen dumpfe Fehlaromen. Wenn das "India’s no. 1 premium beer" ist, kann ich mir die restlichen "Premium"biere aus diesem schönen Land ja sparen ... (Verkostung: 13.8.2016.)
