Bottle into English pint glass. Pours a watery, near-yellow with the weakest head Iíve yet seen. The aroma was floral skunk; I doubt this beer was actually skunked because the brew date was Feb. of this year. Flavor was the skunkiness, some wet hay, a touch of sweet something and mild bitter hops. To be fair, this sat well on the palate. Then again, so does water. I got this at a liquor store on a lark when the Indian proprietor chose to reward my interest in an Indian beer by running back into his cooler and pulling out of his personal stash. I appreciate his graciousness, but the beer doesnít really match his efforts to impress and reward.

tangentrider (144) - Alabama, USA - JAN 6, 2008
Pale yellow lager with a disappearing white head. Slight malt aroma. Slight, though present, hop flavor. Beer is a bit watery. Finish was touch of hop. Not worth a second purchase, but it went well with the Indian food.

Bottled (Thx. to Myrup for sharing). Pale yellow coloured. Clear. Pale white fluffy head. Aroma is quite grainy and grassy. Has some fruity notes. Flavour is quite sweet and grassy. A bit thin. Watery mouthfeel, which leads to a vaguely bitter end.

mabel (7712) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - NOV 5, 2006
[062-20061014] 330mL. Smells like stale straw. Light pine-coloured body with a very fast-disappearing foamy white head and a few big bubbles. Drinking this is like drinking sucking on dirty, soggy paper money -- more specifically, money thatís been sitting in a pool of pungent, skunky spice-water. Palate is light bodied with an ok aftertaste. Overall itís pretty terrible and very hard not to notice that rocky spice.

Can. My beer no. 800. Brought to me by my Brother from a trip to India. Not the best celebration beer, but a special one. No head. Just ok aroma, bad bready and sweet taste. Short finish, and exsremely watery.
