2.8 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured from a bottle into a pilsner glass. Golden transparent color. A good inch and half of white head and lots of bubbles. Beautiful looking lager in the tall glass. Looks just as good as the pilsners in Czech or Germany.
Strong corn smell. Not much else.
Taste: Light bitterness, clean finish.
Bubbly, light bodied, soft and tingly on the tongue. I thought it would be more crisp and clean but this works.
Itís drinkable. Not my favorite style, but I thought this was a decent beer in the so-called "American Lager" category... though it is from India. Not sure how that works. In any case it drinks more like a pilsner, but a bit softer. It is definitely better than most of other American Lagers Iíve had.

Giant bottle at a local Indian restaurant. Clear pale yellow color, white coca cola head. Aroma of corn flakes. Taste is weak straw. Safer than the water.

"Had a mini Indian beer taste-off between Blue Himalayan and Taj Mahal. Not expecting greatness from either commercially produced lager, but here I go anyway. Look-same light straw color while pouring. TM is typical macro lager. Canít even say that for BH...slightly hazy...slightly. Even pouring down the middle produces little or no head. Aroma-both typical macro lager aroma, with a slight extra unpleasantness to the BH. Feel-BH is flat, and as the aroma and taste are not good either, the mouthfeel is horrible too. TM isnít good, but has better carbonation and isnít as repulsive. flavor-BH rivals the worst of the American macros...no way in hell iím finishing this. TM is closer to average but still donít want to finish. overall, Blue Himalayan is foul pee water, while Taj Mahal is somewhere between horrible and respectable, although a little closer to the later. No more Indian beer for me. Iíll be dumping 18 of the 22 oz of BH, and probably wonít quite finish the TM either."

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Regular adjunct lager with the non-malts taking center stage. Some hops of dubious quality. Turns undrinkable when it warms up.

65cl bottle at an Indian restaurant. Probably the beer with less taste I ever had. At least no weird flavors.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cleargold, with a short white head.
Aroma of mild, sweet grain malt.
Taste is grain malt, rice....sweet....almost the sugar/cornflake taste of an NA...
Really not too bad, no skunk, just overly sweet.

3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
This Indian Lager is a very good American styled lager beer. I bought it from a "Whole Foods" store in Marietta, GA and it traveled well from the brewery. No hint of skunkiness, a good crisp taste. A non-overpowering aroma and a pretty full body for a lager. I would definitely drink this again. I would compare it with the other well known Indian brew "Kingfisher", Interesting label to boot, not shiny and eclectic like many micro-brews but an old school label that did get me to notice it in the cooler.

12oz bottle from an Indian store in Rochester, NY. Straw with a ring of white head; some spicy hops on the aroma; full bodied with a sweet rice grain taste; and a clean finish. Much better than expected.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Clear golden pour with minimal head . Sweet and sticky. Lots of carbonation. Easy to session. Lots of corn. Probably tastes real good when fresh.
Pretty much a standard lager

2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Pour form a 22 oz bottle. Clear yellow brew with white head, good head retention. Aroma dominated by malt - clean malt, no adjunct or corn to my nose. Taste is light sweet malt from start to finish, the barest hint of a sour astringency at the very end is the only suggestion of hops. A pleasant brew though rather plain.
