Clear gold appearance with not much else going on. You’re hoping for something at least slightly different with a name like that, and it ends up tasting like any other standard lager. You could have served this beer to me in a Bud bottle and I wouldn’t have known.

hauxe (168) - Butzbach, GERMANY - JAN 1, 2016
Rated from old notes. Mild, smooth, perfect level of carbonation. Nice lacing. Good foundation. But it’s although something is missing. Very mild hops presence, an indifferent, slightly sweet taste. Great if you like a drinkable but unadventurous lager.

Have i tasted this before? Reminds me of Milwaukees Best Light. Light aroma and bland flavor. Some rice.

White head, minimal to no lace, and light Amber color. Typical American lager style -- stands out to me about as much as a PBR or Bud Light.

AssKicker (68) - Strasbourg, FRANCE - OCT 26, 2015
Belle apparence bien claire, bonne carbo, mousse qui s’estompe assez rapidement, goût majoritairement malté avec de légères notes de miel et de... crêpe. Plutôt pas mal pour de la lager qui est ordinairement bien plus basique et quelconque que celle-ci.

damzz (402) - Massachusetts, USA - OCT 6, 2015
Pours a slight yellow with a white head. Nose is malt. Body is sweet malt with slight bitterness that lingers. No aftertaste. 22 oz bottle

Nsanders (886) - St Paul, Minnesota, USA - AUG 5, 2015
Bomber. Clear light yellow with active carbonation. Grassy, wheat bread and that is about it. Flavor very mild and slightly bready. Body is light and heavy on the carbonation. Plain by itself but good with spicy indian food

KoRoBeNiKi (138) - Fair Lawn, New Jersey, USA - JUL 29, 2015
Bottled from one of the many Indian restaurants in NYC. Clear yellow, with a small quickly disappearing head. Some light tart corn mixed in with the sweetness. Mo major bitterness. Nothing terrible but so boring. Stick with their other offering which offers a much better backbone.

Pour clear gold with a small white head that quickly vanishes. Nice orange on the nose, but also more pedestrian cereal, especially corn. In the glass, there is mild orange and lemon, more corn and rice, slight sweetness, slight metallic note near the end but finish is quick and clean. Like any mass-market lager, this is made to drink cold, preferably with spicy food, while talking about other things.

corkyrory66 (1116) - BELGIUM - JUL 6, 2015
Non pas une india pale ale ce soir, mais une simple lager de l’Inde profonde pré coloniale … Encore que, comme nous sommes en présence d’une production des United Breweries, on doit se trouver en rapport avec la grosse machinerie internationale … Mais ils ont eu au moins à l’honneur de trouver pour cette bière un cachet culturel digne, et l’étiquette en est la preuve évidente. Dégustation sous un climat indien (29° celsius à minuit !!). Couleur dorée brillante, à la très grande pureté : on peut parler sans crainte d’une apparence cristalline. Magnifique. Bulles fines partout, très vives. Mousse d’un blanc pur, épaisse et crémeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes d’un malt très fin, fleurs, fruits blancs et bois blanc. 1ère bouche douce, au bel ensemble, certes pas compliqué, mais tout à fait honnête. Arrière-bouche certes courte, mais nette, fraîche. 2ème au beau goût, mieux que beaucoup de pils occidentales !! Arrière-bouche très unie. 3ème très douce, quasiment soft. Arrière-bouche linéaire, mais agréable. Longueur qui faiblit un peu (normal). Alcool sans importance. Finale qui tangue sur des fruits. CONCLUSION : sans jeu de mots, on peut parler d’un « soft drink », mais, à la différence de beaucoup de lagers, on sent que c’est de la bière... Ce n’est déjà pas si mal...
