This was my first Indian beer. Well now I have had one... I have had better lagers, however this one does offer a nice clean, crisp taste that balanced out well with the Indian food that it was served with. Nothing great here folks but not too bad either.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very generic, doesn't taste good at all. Aroma is skunky, malty. Pale golden & translucent. No head. Slightly hoppy but really just very bland.

Mostly a generic straw-colored lager, complete with Mom's Old Fashioned Adjunct Flavors. The only saving grace is the strong hop taste, which can stand up to even the spiciest Indian food. If you're eating something really spicy and you're afraid it will overpower your beer, try this. Otherwise, give it a pass.

Not bad really. This is the "hoppy" beer at the Indian restaurant. Lightly floral nose. Flavor does in fact have some hops, faint malts. Something odd happens with the flavor as it warms up, but it doesn't go nasty like some Indian beers. Oh yeah, light yellow, fizzy.

22oz. Yellow gold, white diminished head. Odd flavor really. Something in it is quite sour. Sort of a dirty flavor in your mouth. Fully carbonated. Different. Typical lager really. Boring, but good with food.

2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
More typical lager crap. A crisp flavor and a step above BMC but nothing to really seek out. Standard issue stuff. I have nothing more to say really. Blah.

Pale golden, ok head.

Tasted in Toronto from LCBO. Clear, light yellow colour, considerable carbonation with sustained white head. Aroma is very faint. Subtle fruit aroma. Little or no bitterness, very non-descript. Slightly bad aftertaste. Very thin beer.

Recently had this beer ata put in Edmonton and it didn' do much for me. Very yellow in color and actually smells kind of bad. The beer is moderate at best.

1.1 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
Cloudy yellow gold color with a few islands of small bubbles floating about. Sweet syrupy odor with a touch of dryed flowers, hay and light urine. Initial sweetness swept away by alcohols and solvents. Touch of oak and metal. Nutty in a strange way. Sticky, yet thin.
