Poured from bottle. Minimal head and carbonation. Pale yellow. Hoppy aroma. Crisp tasting lager. Not as bad as I had thought. Certainly drinkable.

Pour clear gold with a small white head that quickly vanishes. Nice orange on the nose, but also more pedestrian cereal, especially corn. In the glass, there is mild orange and lemon, more corn and rice, slight sweetness, slight metallic note near the end but finish is quick and clean. Like any mass-market lager, this is made to drink cold, preferably with spicy food, while talking about other things.

Non pas une india pale ale ce soir, mais une simple lager de l’Inde profonde pré coloniale … Encore que, comme nous sommes en présence d’une production des United Breweries, on doit se trouver en rapport avec la grosse machinerie internationale … Mais ils ont eu au moins à l’honneur de trouver pour cette bière un cachet culturel digne, et l’étiquette en est la preuve évidente. Dégustation sous un climat indien (29° celsius à minuit !!). Couleur dorée brillante, à la très grande pureté : on peut parler sans crainte d’une apparence cristalline. Magnifique. Bulles fines partout, très vives. Mousse d’un blanc pur, épaisse et crémeuse, stable à 3 mm. Arômes d’un malt très fin, fleurs, fruits blancs et bois blanc. 1ère bouche douce, au bel ensemble, certes pas compliqué, mais tout à fait honnête. Arrière-bouche certes courte, mais nette, fraîche. 2ème au beau goût, mieux que beaucoup de pils occidentales !! Arrière-bouche très unie. 3ème très douce, quasiment soft. Arrière-bouche linéaire, mais agréable. Longueur qui faiblit un peu (normal). Alcool sans importance. Finale qui tangue sur des fruits. CONCLUSION : sans jeu de mots, on peut parler d’un « soft drink », mais, à la différence de beaucoup de lagers, on sent que c’est de la bière... Ce n’est déjà pas si mal...

UDBeernut (2165) - Between JAX and SGJ, Florida, USA - JUN 21, 2015
Bottle pour clear gold with a very small white head, light visible carbonation. Not much to this one, wet grain, rice, slightly sweet. Light body with an abrupt finish.

Calisky (1665) - ALSACE, FRANCE - JUN 4, 2015
Couleur jaune claire, très légère mousse. Nez très leger. Gout très leger malté et carton avec assez mauvaise amertume. Corps leger. Vraiment lager de base.

Holmen2 (1786) - NORWAY - JUN 2, 2015
From bottle at India Gate in Haugesund 02.06.15. Clear straw colour. Small, white head. Aroma of maize, grass and crude hops. Similar taste. Low bitterness. Waterish, wirh hints of artificial sweeteners. Could have been any other crappy Eurolager.

Butelka 0,65l pite w Indii. Kolor jasnozłoty, piana biała zanikająca. Aromat zbożowy, łagodny chlebowy. Smak słodowy, metaliczny.Trochę maślane, wypic można tylko w upałach.

GT2 (9275) - San Diego County, California, USA - MAY 11, 2015
[ Bottle ][ 500mL ][ Royal India Del Mar ][ $5 ][ Flute ][ 4.12.15 ]
>> Pours sparkling straw with poor head retention. Nose is faint orange blossom, white corn, cereal flakes, lemon. Taste is inoffensive, soda high carbonation, served pretty cold with flavors of lemon and orange pushed aside for cereal, mild white sugar, slight metallic bite. Fairly balanced though and drinkable. Never saw this for sale in India though, I think this is like Fosters, for export only.

BlackHaddock (4920) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 8, 2015
650ml bottle shared between myself, my wife and son-in-law on 7th May 2015 along with two other Indian lagers at some random Indian restaurant in Laguna Hills, Orange County. Clean, clear and bright light golden body, a pure white crown on top. Not a lot of aroma, some light maltiness if I am being kind. Not a lot of flavour or taste, some light maltiness if I am being kind. Mild corn feel to the whole brew. Went OK with my Chicken Vindaloo, as did the other two we tried, but this is not a lager I would seek out again.

BeerAndPonies (119) - Medicine Hat, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2015
330 ml bottle from Sobeys Liquor, served in a nonic pint glass. Pours a bright, clear straw yellow with light, fine carbonation and a pearly off-whitecap that crackles loudly but doesn’t disappear in a blink, leaving a few lace islands. Aroma is unsweetened cereals and dusty, herbal hops; flavor is moderately malty but without the sweetness of so many light lagers. I’m impressed! Did not expect that. Just a touch of sweet fruitiness in the sip that’s apple-like, but not acetaldehyde-y. Has a nice bit of body to it, and finishes cleanly. A very tasty and friendly lager I don’t have to fly to Bangalore to enjoy. Really nice!

Bottle at a local Indian Restaurant. Was hesitant to try this beer, as Pale Lagers are not among my favorite styles. But was pleasantly surprised, as i would have to rate this as the best tasting Pale Lager i’ve ever had. Sweet & delicious. Tastes like it’s made with honey. Am very surprised at all the low ratings...as this is a very drinkable, smooth brew with no bitterness or aftertaste.
