Sweet nose and palette.a bit malty.sick with kingfisher for a light larger to pair with Indian food.

VTHopHead (1511) - Seymour, Tennessee, USA - FEB 12, 2012
Bottle/650ml - Pours a clear golden yellow in color... like any "good" pale lager would. Almost no head and what there was faded to nothing... very low to non-existent carbonation. Aroma is slightly sweet and, unfortunately, but not surprisingly, of a small amount of grassy hops and lots of fermented corn/adjuncts. Flavor is more sweet than I expected with the slight flavor of honey or, more likely, HF corn syrup. Some sourness in the finish. Little in the way of hop flavor or bitterness. From India or not... just another poor quality mega-brew in my opinion... File under "Glad to have tried it *once*"

BeerHawk (1810) - Huntsville, Alabama, USA - FEB 11, 2012
Bottle. Poured pale with a quick, fizzy white head. Aroma of honey, corn, and a hint of citrus. The flavor found honey, grain, and a light metallic backing. Light body, watery, and a light malt aftertaste.

Rustyham (1836) - St. Petersburg, Florida, USA - JAN 14, 2012
Slight aroma of breakfast cereal. Flavor is a very delicate corn, wheat, pale malt. Clean taste, on the sweet side, not so much on the pilsener side.

decaturstevo (6244) - decatur, Tennessee, USA - DEC 23, 2011
Yellow pour with frothy white head. Perfum, corn, and an almost harsh vanilla/gas aroma. Sweet corn followed by a sour funk, then a hinto abv harshness. A more of a sour finish than a bitter. Thin and foamy body. Just not much. It does look like a beer.

mickmac (486) - Ngunnawal, AUSTRALIA - NOV 4, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a small sized white head over a clear pale gold body. Very little aroma to speak of. Taste is malt dominant-bread, honey-with a slight herbal hoppy background and finish. Medium bodied and moderate carbonation. I had this at our local Indian restaurant and it goes a treat aginst the spicy warmth of Indian food.

Radek Kliber (7369) - Toronto (Can) Krotoszyn (Pol), POLAND - OCT 10, 2011
Bottle 330 ml
Aroma: vintage foreign aromas , green glass cask sipped on British royal vessel of keg called Haywards. Creamy light-struck notes that might persuade Mr. Rusty that is vintage oak cask. After all it might be vanilla ... or not. Green grassy feel of Citra or green Indian tea? Beer sobs would hate it yet labeled as DDC or Cigar City 500K would love its ...finesse. I just don’t mind. 4+
Appearance: look at amber gold staring right at you. Clear with minimal head. Most of us don’t give second chance. Me either... 2-
Body , Flavour , Palate and Final Notes: Oily wall on carbonated soft grainy ( a le mais ). Very tropical in approach. Light on alcohol , slight cask notes of "zielone szklo" . Local swear that real Kingfisher is used in brewing . I can confirm or deny it. There is something in it for sure....Fell of lost liver , thousand dollars , years of beer hunting and broken pinky toe. Yet hottest fire makes the hardest liver ... that’s my story . I believe in you or not. Happy 10 10 5000.

dm9831 (1512) - Monee, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2011
clear pale yellow, medium quickly disappearing head, slightly lacy. nose of yeast an corn. flavor of corn syrup sweetness. watery bodied, too sweet a finish. pretty porrly put together. you must drink this chilled extremely cold to get it down.

ChoppingMall (47) - Sleepy Hollow, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 15, 2011
This beer was a big, weird mess of bizarre flavors. Flowers, Bubble-Yum, rotting bananas, and corn cobs fermenting in a moldy abandoned silo. Odd, but it was pretty drinkable. This should come in a 40-ouncer. At a beer store I used to work at, there was a crazy Indian dude with yellow teeth who would yell at me if I ran out of this obscure beer.

davidm (2080) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - SEP 8, 2011
Bottle 330ml. Subtle aromas, not bad at all. Aromas of butter and citrus. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness and average length. Palate is oily, and medium bodied. Yellow, with a head that doesn’t last.
