Pours a clear golden with a foamy white head. Aroma is lot of rice, some mild hops, and very small indiscernible amount of hops. Flavor is rice, a very light sweetness, slight hops note, and rather watery. Palate is sweet and slightly sticky. Overall, Meh...Another Pale Lager. I was expecting more from the great country of Belgium, but even they can make a sub-par Pale Lager.

Brew HaHa - Curry? What curry? I must have missed the secret spice, but what I did catch of this beer was good. Fruity nose and body presented in a lager style. Definitely an above average lager that I will seek out.

Bottel 0,5 l at a nepalese restaurant. Golden with a overpouring white head. Nose is sweetish with some perfume crispiness. Flavor is intensely perfumey bitter with some pilsener like qualities, but the bitterness feels artificial, like soap or mosquito repellant. Some sweetness in background. Quite flavorful anyway.

Bottle - I love the thought behind this. An Indian beer brewed in Belgium. Had this at an Indian restaurant. This is right up there with Taj Majal, Singha, etc, etc with slightly more sweet malt character and a pleasant finish.

Well, I got this beer because the guy at the store recommended it. I think he was just trying to get rid of it. I looked at it and saw that it was Belgian, so I figured it couldnít be too bad, which it isnt, but it isnít that good either, especially for a Belgian beer. Has a lot of pale lager characteristics, including being pale yellow and fizzy, light bodied, and with minimal malt and hop flavors. It does leave a bit of lace in the glass, which is a bit redeeming. As for flavor, it has a bit of a soft palate biscuit bread thing going on. Hops are faint and spicy. Not bad I guess, but.........alright, Iíve wasted enough words on this mediocre beer.

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.

A pale lager brewed in Belgium with an Indian inspired name. Sounds like a recipe for success. The aroma is dominated by the rice, quite sharp, with a touch of hay. Some metallic bitterness that seems typical of pale lager, at least the ones that make some attempt at having flavour. A bti overcarbonated, but again thatís typical of the style. Long lasting finish, but thatís not good as itís all metallic. Itís probably best to keep chugging this down while your palate is still saturated, because then you donít notice the sharpness as much!

Halve liter fles in Punjab restaurant Londen. Pilskleur, aardige kraag. Weinig geur, smaak en nasmaak. Goed genoeg om het etem mee weg te spoelen, maar op zichzelf staande onvoldoende.

Purchased at StateLine liquors in Maryland. I really don’t have a lot to say about this beer except that it is predominantly average at best. The aroma reminded me of straw or a cornfield. In an attempt to generate a powerful head I tried to pour with this intention, yet there was a minimal head that disappated in seconds. No lacing was visible. The color was a cloudy gold hue with no clarity. The taste was similar to a japanese or indian beer with a slight tart sweetness. It was not a bad beer, but I was hoping for a good beer, which is wasn’t either. I could see this beer being a nice acqaintance with a spicy asian or indian dish.
