TBone (15523) - Pori, FINLAND - JUN 8, 2006
Bottled [BB 03/2007]. Golden color, decent white creamy head. Light aroma of grain and corn. Quite standard malty, a bit sweetish till the aftertaste, which is harsh bitter. Not very "Indian" but as boring as real ones.

stegosaurus (1882) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - MAY 31, 2006
Bottle sampled with Beerded_one pours pale yellow gold with a 2 1/2 finger thick head. Aroma of sweet malt, citrus, yeast. Flavor weak, sweet malts, carbonated, slight bitter finish. Not great, but drinkable.

Tubbfan (147) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - MAY 16, 2006
Nice head and lacing. OK, that’s about it for positives. Yellow colored, very clear liquid. Not much aroma, citrus flavor (no indication of citrus on the label - but then there isn’t much on this label); very crisp, champagne-like carbonation. This is definitely a pilsner but not a very good example.

Likeburning (149) - Franklin, Tennessee, USA - APR 25, 2006
Alarmingly clear yellow color that.. oh crap, it is a pale lager. Bitter aroma a little skunky. No hops, but the rice is noticible. If I had read pale lager on the label, I wouldn’t have bought it.

Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - APR 13, 2006
This is "brewed with patience using malt, rice, hops, yeast and spring water?" Well, perhaps the corny aroma that I’m smelling is the "Indian character" that they speak of. Whatever. It’s a very pale yellow drink, soft in the mouth, that delivers a weak, sweet malt taste and finishes on a watery note. I’m still waiting for the hops that are mentioned. At least it’s too mild on every front to get offensive.

GG (2332) - NorCal, California, USA - APR 7, 2006
Somewhat dissapointing. I was expecting something really enjoyable but what I got was much, much less. I got a ton of corn in the nose with a soapyness that really unpleasing. The appearance was a nice clear, yellow color. The slight harshness of the beer was not enjoyable at all, and the flavor corn really didn’t sit right with me. A WELL below average Belgian lager. No thanks.

DuffMan (8810) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 27, 2006
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 America’s typical pale lagers.

oh6gdx (24330) - Vasa, FINLAND - FEB 25, 2006
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.
