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. Ungstrup (38899) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - APR 9, 2011
Draft. A light golden beer with a thin white head. The aroma has notes of malt as well as hints of hops. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, metal, and alcohol. A very simple beer - hence boring. konstifik (573) - SWEDEN - AUG 1, 2010
Pale yellow beer creating an enormous head when poured. Sweet bready aromas, maybe a little caramel too. Can’t really detect any hop action at all here. Taste is sweet, no bitterness. Rather dull to drink. Skarecrow (1042) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 1, 2017
Light amber with OK head.
Medium bitterness with crisp dry finish. Meh.

Looks lagerish with a thin film of head across the top. A sort of musky aged smell to it remiscent of pilsener malt. Not a great deal of hop character at all. Flavours more of the same: malt driven, wet and coldish. Not great, but not bad either.
Davros (3338) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2011
Pours pale gold with a lasting head.
Nose is grassy and spicy with hints of bready malt. Pretty plain, and there’s also a vegetal note in the background.
More malt shows as a flavour, mainly bready. Very sweet with practically nothing in the way of balancing bitterness. Again, notes of corn and cooked vegies detract from the experience.
Carbonation could be higher. OJB (40) - Dunedin, NEW ZEALAND - JUN 7, 2012
The colour was medium amber gold, with a medium frothy head, and moderate carbonation. The aroma was light and fruity, with malt and light bitterness. The flavour was quite sweet, with malt and light bitter hops. This beer had smooth soft flavours. It was a simple lighter style, lacking a bit in flavour.

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. omega (899) - NEW ZEALAND - AUG 30, 2014
It’s a lager, and actually quite a good example of one, but at the end of the day it is still a lager. Pdubyah (833) - 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.
