hawthorne00 (3853) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2010
650ml bottle. Orange, small white head. Nose has somewhat muddled malt and a little citrus. No skunk though - clearly fresh. Taste is of confused malt sweetness. Medium body. Hides its alcohol pretty well. Tastes like holidays to me, which means my expectations were not confounded and the beer recalls good times. This is much better than any of the other strong beers I tried in India and is perfectly tolerable.

DeanF (2439) - Alberta, CANADA - JAN 4, 2010
Found in Bandipur, about 125km northwest of Kathmandu. Explosive pour, foam everywhere. Have to protect my cigars! Zero head after all that, nothing left after mopping up the overflow. Boring yellow. Absolutely no aroma; maybe some alcohol and corn, actually, but barely noticeable. Given the "strong lager" tag on this one maybe thats a good thing. Barely any flavour? Yes, barely any flavour. Probably lots of rice used in the mix, very smooth, no alcohol, no grains, no hops to speak of in spite of whats advertised. Good for getting drunk. Not for enjoying a brew.

altonbrownd (5898) - Chevy Chase, Maryland, USA - DEC 28, 2009
Bottle brought back from Bangalore by parents. Light golden colour with minimal head. Skunky nose. Taste of malts, mainly, some paper and sweets. Hoppier finish. Not great but also not as bad as the ratings.

troopie (2311) - Munchen an der Willamette, Oregon, USA - DEC 10, 2009
Bottle. Poured pale orange gold with thin fast dissipating white head. Aroma is malt and something else, possibly an adjunct. Oily body with a bit of malt and an alcohol burn. Hot finish, with more alcohol. Oh well, its a beer from India

Can 500ml.
Clear medium yellow color with a small to average, frothy, good lacing, mostly diminishing, white to off-white head.

Can. A dark golden beer with a lazing white head. The aroma has notes of caramel and malt. The flavor is sweet with notes of malt, metal, and caramel, leading to a dry metallic finish. Thanks Papsoe for sharing and Madsberg for bringing it to Denmark.
