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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Drank from a couple bombers the other night at our friendsí house on a night where we got Indian carry-out. Pours a clear gold color, on the paler side of the spectrum, with a small white head that lasts a while as a ring. No skunk in this one - actually had a surprising fresh snap to it - with straw, grass, pale and corny and cereal malts, and a bit of cracker, faint fruits (apple, pear), and just a touch of a mineral or metallic thing. Very light, though. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a crisp, malty mouthfeel. Pretty decent, actually.

Pours with a golden colour and small head. Grassy aroma. Lots of carbonation. Weak lager flavour with metallic notes. Very thin with a watery finish.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Rating this off a recent large format that I drank at the Indian place down the street in Hoboken. Surrised Iíve never rated this before, as I tend to consume one every so often with Indian. Itís solid or better as far as adjunct lager goes. Another way to say itís a poor beer, but not a terrible one.

1.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Giant bottle at a local Indian restaurant. Clear pale yellow color, white coca cola head. Aroma of corn flakes. Taste is weak straw. Safer than the water.

1.5 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
"Had a mini Indian beer taste-off between Blue Himalayan and Taj Mahal. Not expecting greatness from either commercially produced lager, but here I go anyway. Look-same light straw color while pouring. TM is typical macro lager. Canít even say that for BH...slightly hazy...slightly. Even pouring down the middle produces little or no head. Aroma-both typical macro lager aroma, with a slight extra unpleasantness to the BH. Feel-BH is flat, and as the aroma and taste are not good either, the mouthfeel is horrible too. TM isnít good, but has better carbonation and isnít as repulsive. flavor-BH rivals the worst of the American macros...no way in hell iím finishing this. TM is closer to average but still donít want to finish. overall, Blue Himalayan is foul pee water, while Taj Mahal is somewhere between horrible and respectable, although a little closer to the later. No more Indian beer for me. Iíll be dumping 18 of the 22 oz of BH, and probably wonít quite finish the TM either."

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Regular adjunct lager with the non-malts taking center stage. Some hops of dubious quality. Turns undrinkable when it warms up.

65cl bottle at an Indian restaurant. Probably the beer with less taste I ever had. At least no weird flavors.
