1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Haven't I had this before? Nothing too special here. Light golden color with a normal forced carbonation white head. Aroma and Flavor are adjunct. Some hops but very little if any malt action here. Body is thin and fizzy. I sure wish they had better beer at Indian restaurants because I love Indian food!

Better than I anticipated. Only some sweetness and not all corny. I coudn't tell if it got really gross with warming because MY MOUTH WAS ON FIRE from the indian food, downtown Cincinatti. Hops? - umm..not so much.

(Bottle) Had always thought I had had this??? Guess not. Time for a taste - Pours a thin white head and a faint golden body. Skunky grassiness to the nose. Better flavour, and more complex, than Kingfisher but lacking a raw maltiness or something. Average.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2004 Good taste for this exotic beer but nothing stands out or is special about it. Though not a great beer it is not bad.

Nice yellow color stands out. Clean and very hoppy considering the type, refreshing but not really a stand out by any means as the taste is somewhat lacking.

"Slow brewed for ther connoisseur" it proclaims. probably the same connoisseur who drinks nothing but the "King Of Beers". Yuk. The aroma was skunky, yet the taste wasn't skunky at all. it tasted kinda grainy...somewhat like cereal. like cereal that's been left soaking in milk for a few days...all wet and mushy. ugh.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: AUG 3, 2003 Soon after the pour, the head diminishes to a layer about as thin as a sheet of onion paper. Light, light gold in colour. A strong aroma of cereal wafts out of the glass, followed by some confectionery sweetness and ripples of malt and strawberry. An interesting, slightly gritty texture leads to an unobtrusive flavour. With less up-front bitterness than your average lager, it’s the cereal that again leads the way, slowly fading from the palate like the sun setting over a Himalayan peak. Mildly interesting, but still a tourist in lager-land.
