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.

TBone (12474) - 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.

argo0 (11349) - Washington DC, USA - SEP 12, 2006
(500ml bottle) Medium white head atop a clear pale straw body. Aroma is medium sweet, mild, cereal, rice. Taste is medium sweet, rice, some cereal, light grassy/spice. Watery light body. Fool that I am, I saw "Belgian" and bought it -- why the heck is a Belgian Pale Lager being imported when there are dozens of great beers from there unavailable in the States?!

bhensonb (10802) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 10, 2007
Aroma of malt, yeast, and light, faint, maybe grassy, hop. Slightly hazy lemon gold color with a substantial white head. Medium bodied. Hints of lemon and other citrus. Moderate carbonation. Sturdy malt character, but far from sicky sweet. Decent bitter in the finish. Maybe a hint of citrus sour in the back of the mouth. This is surprisingly good stuff. That from an ale drinker. If Bud turned into this, America would rule the beer world (except for Czecho).

Tmoney99 (10462) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 18, 2006
Bottle. Poured light hazy pale color with an average frothy white head that diminished slowly with good lacing. Light sweet grainy aroma. Light body with a watery texture. Light sour flavor with a light sour finish of short duration. I would not recommend this to freind.

imdownthepub (10019) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - DEC 26, 2007
Bottled, pasteurised, 500ml. From Marche de Natalie, Bouillon, Belgium Pale gold with white head. Quite a hard corny aroma which follows into a sweet malty lager, highly carbonated. Some fruitiness and a hop note to save it a little.

FatPhil (9172) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 8, 2008
Nondescript light orange. Nondescript lager aroma. Tastes like a lager, but a non-descript one at that. Finish? Yes, I did finish it. Why do good brewers like van Steenberge waste their time on nonsense like this?

daknole (8941) - Scottsdale, Arizona, USA - FEB 7, 2010
Yellow pour, white head. Lightly malty aroma with some honey and very faint hops. Flavor is malty and has a distinct honeycomb flavor. Not great, but drinkable.

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 12, 2006
500 ml bottle. Pale golden with a thick white head. Aroma of pale malt, fresh grassy hoppiness. Noble character is apparent. Flavour is well-balanced, crisp pale malts and a slightly bready finish. Decent bitterness. Much better than most in the category.

Drake (8030) - Free Union, Virginia, USA - JUL 12, 2008
Bottle from Market Street Wine Shop Downtown Charlottesville. Lemon yellow color with a persistent and creamy one finger head. Grassy, slightly bitter aroma. Fruity, grassy apple-like taste. Medium body. Not great by any means, but I found this more enjoyable than most of the previous raters seem to.
