670ml bottle from Sainsbury’s. A standard pale lager. Dry and drinkable - no problems. Few hops, but some people like it that way. The bottle image is of a mongoose with a dead cobra in its mouth. This beer was launched by Wells & Young after they lost the contract to brew Cobra.

To be honest I don’t know how much of a difference there is between this and Cobra, I’d need to have them one after the other. This similarly hits the spot with a curry though, and that’s the important thing.

Keg at Qarma, Leek. A clear golden colour with a fizzy white head. Aroma of grain, straw, slight shortbread, some orange and very subtle spicy hops. Taste is the same of grain, straw, shortbread, slight orange and some spicy hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation for a lager.A crisp, grainy finish with some spicy hop bitterness. A typical Indian lager. Crisp and clean malt flavours that go well with a curry.

Draught pint at Paddy’s Martens Inn, Leicester on 16/06/2015. Clear pale golden colour with a small to medium sized white head. Aroma of straw, but little much of anything else. Low to medium carbonation. Flavour of grain, malt and a little citrus. Refreshing, but better with food. Indifferent between this and Cobra.

The classic battle - mongoose versus cobra. Only one winner for me - when you want a lager with your Indian food, this is much less gassy and has a creamier texture than its serpentine rival. This makes it a much more suitable accompaniment to spicy cuisine. That said, it is just an average pale lager, but it’s one of the better ones I’ve had in an Indian restaurant.

Bottle. Obviously this so called ’Indian beer’ is all the way from Bedford. Pours amber with barely any head which fades away shortly after its poured. Aroma of malt, citrus, orange. Taste of malts and berries. Light body medium carbonation. Drank with a curry.

Don’t know why I ended up drinking this. Not going to get good reviews off anyone who likes beer really is it? It’s not offensive to me, just a boring lager with little flavour or aroma. Had worse but it’s just a shit lager.

330ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Feel a bit cheated with this one. I thought I was going to be drink a traditional Indian beer, but this beers is as authentic as you average UK curry. Having said al that is ok.

a reasonable lager although nothing special. refreshing, drinkable and at £1.25 for a 670ml bottle it was worth the money.
