The aroma has a great deal of lager malt. This is very prominent when I take a sip of the beer. The taste is a slight bit astringent at first, but this went away. The Taj Mahal is a decent lager; not very complex, but not bad.

pours straw in color with thin, white head, no lacing. Aroma is sweet corn with a little grain. Tastes like paper and bitter apples. Tart and watery. Iím trying to finish, but its hard.

341ml bottle. Pours straw yellow with almost no head. Aromas of chardonnay and maybe some apple... Taste of will it doesn?t really matter what it tastes like, the taj mahal should stick to curry...

A little head that vanishes quickly. Itís got the right colour. The booze comes out easy and it dominates. It tries to be sweet but the mix of booze and sweet is off putting. Grainy, grassy with buttery. Worth the tick but thatís all.

Scipio (650) - Palatine, Illinois, USA - MAR 17, 2014
Pours a clear, pale yellow with a medium white head that dissipates quickly. The aroma is skunky, very grainy, and mild breadiness. The taste continues with a grainy theme. Its a bit buttery with some metallic flavors as well. But at least it isnít as bad as it smells. It lacks much of an aftertaste, although I do get some floral hints. Light in body, with a good amount of carbonation, but a thin texture. I suppose that I can happily say that it is at least mildly drinkable and I was able to take this one down.

Flaske fra Meny StrÝmmen. Korngul, lite skum og medium kullsyre. Utpreget maltlukt og kanskje litt sitrus. Smaker utvannet og tamt, ingen stor opplevelse.

Poured from 650ml bottle, I believe this is my first rate from India, might be the last. Pours a clear light yellow with a thin white head, the aroma is of skunk and really not a lot else, not sure how old this bottle is, I guess thereís some wet socks mixed in too, awful, the flavor is horrible, rancid, dirty water mixed with skunk and basement mold, my god, not worth the $2 price tag.

Smells little. Some fruit. Pale colour. Large white head that disappears quickly. Grassy, leathery flavour. Not nice. Nice and carbonated. The only good thing about this beer is that itís quick to drink...

12/11/13. 650mL bottle from Warehouse. Weird, I always assumed I had rated this. Just one of those things I was always scrolling past until I finally decided to double check. Well, here goes. I have such high expectations for the beauty. Bottle from store aroma. Not quite clear golden copper type pour. I wouldnít call it hazy or cloudy, but itís not quite clear. Some chill haze, I suppose. Grassy aroma, sweet, wet hay, a bit like driving onto a farm with a bunch of fresh cut hay, only thereís also skunk, that weird burnt caramel malt liquor aroma, touches of fruitness, and some new rubber tire. Sweet flavor, hay, grass, and doughy malts dominate, showing some corn, rubber, and burnt caramel. Not good, but could be much worse.

11oz bottle at a India restaurant. Pours a pale yellow color with a thin white head that leaves little to no lacing. Smells of light malts, hops and rice. Tastes of all the same things in the smell. Mouthfeel is light with good carbonation. Overall it was a pretty good lager, it went well with the spicy Indian food I was eating.
