Light sparkling yellow color. Grassy, slight hop nose. Some malt, sugary, slightly bitter with a touch of grass in the palate.

Definitely works with Indian food. Iíve never had it other than in an Indian restuarant though, unlike Tsing Tao and Chinese food I would probably never buy this outside of a restaurant.

Nothing to talk about here. A weak beer with pale yellow color and faint skunky aroma. Taste like a classic american macro lager which means it needs serious help.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale yellow, bubbly but ugly looking head. Overly sweet hoppy nose. But not horrible tasting. I really like the mouthfeel, with some good lingering aftertaste. Suprisingly better than expected. And thatís India done...

A clean, crisp, fizzy, not pleasant beer.

Not too bad. Looks like a typical lager, clear and light golden. Nose is not at all good. Was three feet away after the pour and the skunkiness hit like a brick. Very strong. Very nasty. Does have a bit of pepepry lemon as a backup, but way too strong in the nose. Fortunatley, the flavorís much better. Sweet and crisp, very refreshing. Slightly odd finish, reminding me of eating a powered sugar donut, sort of crumbly, sandy, and sweet. No real hops, but the malts are long and not too bad. Would absolutely rock with some hot food, but not at all offensive on its own.

UPDATED: MAY 26, 2003 Re-Rate 5/26/03 - Ratebeer confession - only beer I have ever rated from memory because the flavor was so distintive to me the first time I had Indian food. No "band-aid" flavor this time. A bit of hops in the nose - very tangy flavor - high carbonation - slightly bitter. Light golden appearance. Still not that bad in my opinion. Original - 3.3 - Perfect compliment to spicy Indian food. First tast reminds me of a bandaid - but then the taste kind of grows on you. Would not drink by itself - just as a compliement to Spicy food.
