COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
They were the gypsies who strode across the misty valleys of Europe over the centuries. Their's was a life on the move, always on horseback. An exquisite alchemy of strength and skill. With man and horse in perfect rhythm. This is the inspiration of our beer whose recipe takes a page from history and turns it into the choice of today and tomorrow, Zingaro. Brewed with skill to blend strength with character. Filled with zest for life. Like you.

Huge thanks to Amit for bringing this back from India for me. A fun label indicates that the beer has less than 8% alcohol. That vagueness would never allow a bottle of this into the US commercially, but is what makes sampling Indian beers so much fun. Pours a light gold, surprisingly good head with decent retention. Aroma was vaguely bready with a hint of ash. Flavor was quite a shock, bready malts, faint rice, a touch of honey, and a definite smoky note that I wasn’t remotely expecting. Faint hop bitterness on the finish. By Indian beer standards, this was really good, by malt beer standards, it bordered on fantastic. I know I got this bottle in good condition, but I was surprised at how much better it was than I had expected. I suspect the flavors I found here would wilt quickly in the hull of a ship for a month, or on a store shelf with that clear bottle.

What the hell is this description????? Anyway, this is simply a malt liquor that is more alcoholic than other beers in India. Shocker as expected. Perhaps the gypsies should have kept their secret to themselves.

Bottled. Pale golden, small creamy head. Aroma od diesel and alcohol. The thin body gives the rice and syrup a hopeless task to stry stio the onslaught of burning chemicals and alcohol. There’s no trace of the imported hops touted on the label. More or less undrinkable.

Bottled(330ml). -pale golden, medium airy head, yeasty nose, strong herbal and metalic aroma, tasted very strong for 5%, somehow nutty dry finish
