1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Crap, Crap, Double Crap...A premium lager eh...well this one has a golden piss yellow color, with a fast soda head. Got a serious skunk aroma going on. Tastes just as I expected it to, the finish is smooth but that is about all this one has going for it.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Little head, light gold color and more hops than a regular American lager. But not worth the price of admission.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Drinkable, bland, and better than quite a few beers I've had from India. Thin palate, yellow color. Pretty abysmal overall though.

I did not expect much from this beer being as it is described as "Premium" on the label but I was a little surprised by how smooth it was. The aroma is skunky which makes you fear your first sip, but once taken, the flavor is not so bad.

Typical in the not-so-great traditions of beers from the subcontinent. Probably the best of its compatriots.

0.9 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 3/20
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2004 Rerate after being given a fresh bottle by a friend. Poured pale yellow. Aroma sort of yeasty/peaty. Tasted slightly hoppy, slightly crisp, but nothing to write home about. They drink this in India, but they can’t have a cheeseburger...what’s up with that? Then again, if cattle really are Gods, I’m totally screwed. I’d rather drink Ganges river water than ever drink this again.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
This one poured a light yellow with next to no head. Even after a rough pour. Doughy Yeast is first to the nose. Cheesy earth notes. Initial taste had a smoky flavour to it. Hickory to be exact. With slight cheesy flavours. Finish was watery, with the palate the same other than the light smoke flavour.
OK I guess...

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: APR 5, 2004 Clear yellow, standard lager appearance. Nose is a floral lemon and grass lager aroma. Taste is like plastic and burnt fruit... very corrosive feeling and sour. I bought this just to get India under my belt, so I guess I just haven't learned to stay away from "Generic International Lager", the beer.

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Hot sick bad taste. Skunked out the yin yang not in the aroma. Crappy hops. Crisp citrusy salty finish. Pickled cabbage aroma. Really quite bad. Re-rate. No. I was looking forward to a good rated bottle. Blind. I am a fool. Avoid. Really Upset. Confused. Do not no what to think. Some sort of poison. Ple--ase, all c--a;o 9((1111 help me.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
I didn't like this one a whole lot. Not horrible, but nothing superb. The aroma caught me off gaurd...corn and some kind of rotten fruit funk? The taste left in my mouth was similar to the smell. It looked ok I guess, just like a lot of other lagers. Nothing fantastic.
