1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
[ Bottle ][ 500mL ][ Royal India Del Mar ][ $5 ][ Flute ][ 4.12.15 ]
>> Pours sparkling straw with poor head retention. Nose is faint orange blossom, white corn, cereal flakes, lemon. Taste is inoffensive, soda high carbonation, served pretty cold with flavors of lemon and orange pushed aside for cereal, mild white sugar, slight metallic bite. Fairly balanced though and drinkable. Never saw this for sale in India though, I think this is like Fosters, for export only.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
650ml bottle shared between myself, my wife and son-in-law on 7th May 2015 along with two other Indian lagers at some random Indian restaurant in Laguna Hills, Orange County. Clean, clear and bright light golden body, a pure white crown on top. Not a lot of aroma, some light maltiness if I am being kind. Not a lot of flavour or taste, some light maltiness if I am being kind. Mild corn feel to the whole brew. Went OK with my Chicken Vindaloo, as did the other two we tried, but this is not a lager I would seek out again.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
330 ml bottle from Sobeys Liquor, served in a nonic pint glass. Pours a bright, clear straw yellow with light, fine carbonation and a pearly off-whitecap that crackles loudly but doesnít disappear in a blink, leaving a few lace islands. Aroma is unsweetened cereals and dusty, herbal hops; flavor is moderately malty but without the sweetness of so many light lagers. Iím impressed! Did not expect that. Just a touch of sweet fruitiness in the sip thatís apple-like, but not acetaldehyde-y. Has a nice bit of body to it, and finishes cleanly. A very tasty and friendly lager I donít have to fly to Bangalore to enjoy. Really nice!

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at a local Indian Restaurant. Was hesitant to try this beer, as Pale Lagers are not among my favorite styles. But was pleasantly surprised, as i would have to rate this as the best tasting Pale Lager iíve ever had. Sweet & delicious. Tastes like itís made with honey. Am very surprised at all the low ratings...as this is a very drinkable, smooth brew with no bitterness or aftertaste.

Big bomber of a bottle. Pours a pale golden color, some pearly white head, not much lacing. Aroma is faintly bitter hops and hay malt. Flavor is slight. Overall a drinkable beer.

I kind of wish I could have an IPA from India, but a Lager is good enough. Well worth the experience.

650mL bottle. Straw yellow pour with a tiny fizzy white head that quickly dissapates. Aroma of stale corn and rice. Thin mouthfeel, stale aftertaste along with a mild headache. Typical pale lager.
