Slightly hazy, light yellow gold, average foamy head leaving some nice lace. Fresh aromas of lemon and hay. Slightly sweet palate of pale malt with a touch of grassy hops. So much better than North Americaís typical pale lagers.

Bottled. Hazy yellowish golden colour with mediumsized white head. Aroma is strong grassy hops and breadish malts. Flavour is sweet caramellish malts with crashes with the stong hayish bitter hoppyness. Also some honeyish hints in it.

This pale lager pours a light yellow gold color from a 500ml bottle. Large to medium sized white foamy head. Aroma is grassy and grainy and a touch citrusy. Damn this sure looks like a fizzy yellow beer from Belgium. Medium bodied Pale Lager. Malts are grassy, lots of corn as well. Hops are slightly spicy. Nice soft mouthfeel and carbonation. Light and refreshing lager. You can also add any other Pale Lager reference here. Despite that, its not bad for a pale lager. Itís a touch thin and perhaps a little vegetative as it warms. Mouthfeel is clean and smooth. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly bitter.

Bottlred. HAzy light yellow in colour, minor white head. The aroma is bitter with malty hints. The flavour is bitter with a malty aftertaste, quite watery.

iowaherkeye (2686) - Ocean Beach, San Diego, California, USA - FEB 24, 2006
Pours an almost crstal clear straw with a small white head. Weak aroma of wet hay, metal, corn, and some floral hops. Slight hoppy earthy grassiness followed by a little bit of corn and bready sweetness. I think this falls under pilsener, though a weak one at that. Could be a pretty decent summer refresher-type beer. Wonít be getting ever again, mainly because there are a billion beers just like this one.

DocLock (7481) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 30, 2006
Pours urine yellow with a splotchy, ugly head. The aroma was lemongrassy and hopcity, with pale malts present also. The flavor wasnít bad, with a crisp hopc and citric presence coupled with a honey malt sensation. Iíd drink this as a lawnmower beer.

Kinz (3188) - Glen Allen, Virginia, USA - JAN 14, 2006
Iím worried and I havenít even poured. The bottle appears to be a Belgian lager masquerading as an Indian lager. This does not portend of good things. Medium gold, nice head, utterly clear. Aroma of grain and hay. Flavor is of rough grains, a touch of honey sweetness, and a load of grassy hops. And something that isnít quite right. Maybe it was the Indian flair they were going for. They should have stuck with all malts, and they could have had a much better beer. Having said that, in the vast world of crappy pale lagers, this really is on the high end of the scale.

Medium gold body with a white head. The aroma is corn, fresh carrots and some light soap. The taste has some sharp spicy celery with some black pepper. This is very strong with the spice. I am not sure if it supposed to be that strong. There is definitely hops inhere, but it comes across more like grass and popcorn than good hops. This left a lot of lacing on the glass. It needs just a little more malt to balance it out.
