When I drink Indian beer, you can be sure that I am about to saturate my tastebuds with the most savory, spicy, delectable cuisine imaginable, so the beer is definitely a supporting player, at best. While I'd like a nice cask-conditioned bitter to go with the food, this is the U.S. of A. and you're usually stuck with Taj Mahal, Kingfisher, Flying Horse and the Hayward's line. I still think the 5000 from Hayward's was OK the time I had it but, Flying Horse...its weak lager with a malty sweetness, cardboard hops and a dry finish. Generic yellow, quickly diminishing fizzy head, the big bottle sports a little tag on a collar around the neck, letting you know how great this is. Well, thanks for letting me know guys, 'cause my own tastebuds certainly did not discern this. But...like I said, as a foil to Indian food...its palatable.
Crisp light beer for a thirsty day. Not going to win a prize for setting itself apart, but good option to US based light beer.

UPDATED: JAN 27, 2017 Pours a light gold with a small quickly disapating head. Slight malt aroma. The taste is not good I doubt I will drink the whole bottle. Bottle from World Of Beers Middleton Wi just noticed the mfg date was 3-15 so it is almost 2yrs old stevoj (5434) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUL 29, 2016
Bomber at Bombay Grill. As expected for an Asian lager, very pale, unsubstantial head. Flavor was OK, but not remarkable. A tad watery, made for accompanying Indian food. Overall, tended to be bland. Jow (4030) - Orlando, Florida, USA - JUL 23, 2016
Bottle at a decent Indian place near my inlaws place. Golden pale lager fine frothy white head. Nose is bready and grains. Tastes of bread, grain, stale malt, cardboard. Crisp enough slight metallic on finish. fellebag (1538) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 6, 2016

Bottle - Pours yellow white head - nose/taste of chemical cleaner, moldy bread spores and rotten garbage - medium body. geologyguy (1647) - Columbia, South Carolina, USA - DEC 28, 2015
Very very light malt smell... pretty much non-existent...
Taste is the same...like slightly flavored water...not bad per se but nothing to rate! One dimentional hauxe (896) - Butzbach, Hesse, GERMANY - DEC 2, 2015
A light-bodied, clear golder lager. Little aroma. Slightly sour, dry, and like a weak lemon lime soda gone flat. Slightly medicinal taste. Despite these obvious flaws, not altogether repelling, and it settles into a subpar but mildly refreshing lager. Finhead (1796) - OFallon, Illinois, USA - SEP 4, 2015
Clear, yellow pour with a white head. The aroma is mostly straw with some cereal grain. It has a light body with somewhat watery texture and average carbonation. The taste is mildly sweet with a quick, clean finish. Atom (2556) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - AUG 3, 2015
Bottle pours a pale yellow:gold with a medium white head. Aroma of earthy oaty barley malt, like oat meal and honey. Light and sweet malt, faint hop and alcohol. Nice aroma!
