Tmoney99 (14281) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 5, 2017
Bottle. Poured clear golden color with a large white frothy head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Moderate sweet grass aroma. Medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Medium sweet flavor with a medium sweet finish of moderate duration. Sweet malt beer.

TedE (1248) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 24, 2017
330ml bottle @ Taj Agra, Canberra. Sweet malt nose, crystal clear golden beer with thin film of suds on top. Slight zing. Quickly goes from sparkly fun to liquorice cardboard alcohol blast! Much more interesting than I thought it would be.

Skarecrow (632) - North Shore, Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 26, 2017
330ml bottle from Elephant Corridor, Melbourne. Pale straw/no head. Had the typical Indian beer grainy/corn aroma. Grainy taste with usual malt liquor ABV palate/finish. Ho hum.

voyageurmike (387) - Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 21, 2017
Golden beer, poured into a pilsner glass from a pint bottle. Barely any aroma, mainly malt. Taste is too sweet corn, finish is nasty harsh sweet malt. Imagine people drinking 10 million cases of this.

KeefOz (1801) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2017
Tasted 12/1/2017. 500ml can; Amzi Restaurant, Little India, Singapore; $S5.50. BB 25/07/17. Poured a crystal clear golden amber with a one-finger open foam head that diminished quickly to a collar that laced poorly. Carbonation nil. Aroma of slight malt and a hint of rice; no obvious hops. Taste of slight malt with an over-powering sugary sweetness and as slight bitterness. Light body. Smooth with a very sweet finish and alcohol warmth.

F: big, white, average lasting. C: gold, clear. A: malt, corn, rice, hint of roasted malt, biscuit, rubber, dark caramel, alcohol. T: malt, light fruity tones, biscuit, papery, oxidized, mineral, corn, sweet alcohol, medium to full body, lower carbonation, if this beer is in India as an old brand of good strong beer its a big mistake, "alcohol strength not exceeding 8% v/v", 0,5l can from my wifes trip to India.

tightslice (1204) - Redwood City, California, USA - OCT 1, 2016
Bottle from World Market in Redwood City, CA. Aroma is candy corn sweet. Taste is Corn Syrup Wine.

nearbeer (5292) - Knoxville, Tennessee, USA - SEP 20, 2016
650 ml. bottled 03-05-2015 label says "for export out of India" and "alcohol strength not exceeding 8% v/v" so maybe this is the 8% "Bold" version? Pour is clear golden with a thin film of creamy bubbles. Smell is sweet rice, corn, honey, dried grass, booze and a bit of skunk. Flavors of sweet corn, caramel, rice and a touch of dried grass. Medium body is sweet and a touch boozy. Light-medium carbonation. I dont mind a malty brew, but I could only stomach about half of this bomber bottle before I had to bail on this one.

Nekronos (4175) - Xalapa, MEXICO - SEP 11, 2016
Quite normal and not so strong as the label sayd. Intersting to drink with some pakoori and nice rice.

nimbleprop (8178) - SouthWest, Washington, Washington DC, USA - AUG 7, 2016
16oz can I brought back from India, pours a clear yellow with some cloudy, white head. Nose could be worse, malt, corn, butter, lemon. Flavor is grossly sweet, candy corn, lemon, malt, industrial too. Gross finish.
