Light amber with OK head.
Medium bitterness with crisp dry finish. Meh.

Pale gold with a thin white head. Aroma is a bit of cardboard, some lemon and grain. Taste is thin, slightly bitter, a little sour, and quite watery. It’s not really pleasant at all. blipp (9172) - La Mesa, California, USA - SEP 20, 2015
Bottle. Pours gold with a white head. Straw, pale malts, low sweetness, mild floral bitterness, and a quick finish with fresh hay and straw. Decent. tombutlin (313) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - APR 6, 2015
I’m starting to regret buying a 6 pack of mixed Harringtons beer. Some OK and as many have been very poor. This is poor. No aroma and just a sweet, vaguely lager-like maltiness to distinguish this from lemonade. Yellow rather than golden. Just a tiny taste of hay, like a luke warm Heineken that you opened an hour ago and only decided to finish because there was no beer left in the fridge Pdubyah (724) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 20, 2015
It’s a lager. It lacks some of the bite that you might enjoy with other lagers. but it looks nice and has a decent head. Plus it was cold so no complaints there either.

It’s a lager, and actually quite a good example of one, but at the end of the day it is still a lager. DKL (46) - NEW ZEALAND - MAR 16, 2014
Slightly cloudy with a very fluffy head. Not much aroma, a bit of bakers yeast and citrus that also comes through in the flavour. A bit sweet, but generally nothing exciting. Too boring to justify craft beer prices. lisagirl (264) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 19, 2013
not as bad as expected, some more pleasant sweetness than usual. otherwise boring. Cantabrian (1114) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - AUG 18, 2013
What makes a lager "premium"? If not related to the price, it should certainly have a positive feature. I was hoping this "East Indies" Premium Lager would have more of a hoppy note, but in reality it was more of of an "Indian Style" lager, sweet grassy, straw, like a Kingfisher.

Draft at the source, courtesy of staff, thanks! Hazy golden amber color, fluffy white head. Aroma of sweet hay. Taste is bittersweet straw.
