1.6 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
UPDATED: FEB 6, 2013
330 ml bottle and again at my favourite Indian restaurant, second in the on-field tasting series after the godawful “Kingfisher”. Pale golden yellow colour; Moderate head and white foam which lasted for about 1 minute; Slight but sticky lacing with traces of carbonation; Smell of light malt, grain and wet cardboard; Very low sweetness with light taste of malt, rice grain and grass.; Light body, watery palate with barely detectable hop bitterness. No finish, slight dry after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: below average macro lager with very light smell and taste. For having spicy food such as this occasion it’s way better than the bottom pile known as Kingfisher. Still, for the same price I paid to have this (or Kingfisher) at restaurant I can buy a 330ml bottle of Chimay Red at supermarket, why bother? The glamour of Bollywood ends right here.
Flaska i Tokyo. Blek, ljusgul kulör med liten vit skumkrona. Doft av citrus och majs- och lager malt. Smak av detsamma. maekchu (3892) - Hirakata, JAPAN - JUN 23, 2014
Bottle from local Yamaya (which is bringing in crappy beers from all over the world for the 2014 World Cup). Grainy nose, like mash set out in the warm sun. Clear bright straw color. Richly fruity initial (too much), some hopping indeed. Medium body (heavy ofr a lger). Not really terrible and not as bad as most Indian lagers. A bit too sweet. jonno (2761) - JAPAN - MAY 18, 2013
straight forward cloying macro lager. Actually has some decent bitterness off setting the malt, but still pretty average.
