This is my first India beer rating and it is amazing this 650mL bottle at 7% ABV is coming half way across the planet and only costs $2.99 in Florida. Im certainly glad they didnt bother with a Haywards 4000 because that would have been just silly. 5000 is the right call, know that.

Pours pale gold with white head. The aroma is faint with sweetness, faint dark fruity esters and mild chemicals. The taste is sugar sweet sugar and cereal followed by floral hops and faint dark fruitiness.

Damn you Dave. Damn you to hell. Pale lager body, no head or retention or lacing. Looks like lemonade or something, only not as much of a beery appearance as lemonade. I should give it a 1. Nose is full of chemicals and adjuncts, along with some pleasing fruit notes and malt. Flavor profile is identical, tastes like what I imagine drinking Lemon Pine-Sol would taste like. Light bodied, watery and forgettable. Wasnt as bad as Four-0 or Red Horse, so theres that at least.

Pour is a bright golden with almost no head at all. Aroma is vegitable and wet paper bag. Flavor is again wet paper bag with no redeaming qualities. I just got this to fill out a mix-a-sixer and did not look at the label. If i would have seen that this was a 7% pale lager from India i probably would have passed.

Strykzone (7054) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - MAR 2, 2008
Thin golden colored body with a small head that is gone in a flash. Interesting aroma. It is a mix of corn, earth, and a bit of hop. Feels almost water thin with just a bit more carbonation. Flavor is pretty much what you get in the aroma with a mildly bitter aftertaste. Drinking this beer is like kissing your sister.

Had this at the bequest of a good Indian friend - he must have been homesick, but I was just trying to be nice after the first sip. He brought this to the party, and I gave him a Ruination 1pt 6 oz. I think I converted him. 5000 was not undrinkable, but I didnt bother recording any real , color, flavor or other stats on it. Available by the barrel, basically, at Circle in Hopewell, NJ.

harrisoni (17715) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - FEB 4, 2008
Bottle at HogTownHarry Fest 08. Pale gold. Disappearing white head. No aroma. No flavour. Pretty damn awful as it just tastes of lemony metal. But it did come in a 17 year old girls knickers. Long story.....

(Can, Mfg 10/07, Batch 928) Pours a clear golden body with a fizzy white head. Aroma of corn grain. Flavor of corn, metallic, and mild grassy hops. Noticeable alcohol, but the 8% is not apparent.

Can straight from India via a coworker. Pale yellow with a soapy white head. Odd maltish aroma. Flavor grassy and sweet. Better than some of the style Ive had but thats not saying a whole lot.
