I find it indeed sad that the world’s most imitated beer is the American pale lager. With that said, this beer has the characteristics of most pale lagers. However, its aroma is affected by earthy hops. The appearance is yellow/gold, with a white head. Its flavor has a malt sweetness, with some hops thrown in (this by itself is a departure from other pale lagers like Bud). The palate is slightly sour, with a slight hoppyness. Overall, ok for what it is. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 23, 2008
Bomber. Pours a pale fizzy yellow with a half inch white head and spotty lacing. Nose is a bit skunky with sweet grain and grassy hops. Taste is fruity and sweet with a some faint hops in the finish. Lighter mouth feel. Not horrible. Delirium (668) - Falmouth, Cornwall, ENGLAND - AUG 21, 2008
UPDATED: AUG 30, 2008 Bottle (US version, contract-brewed in Saratoga Springs, NY). Aroma is grainy, lightly sweet, with some light fruit. Flavor is similar, with a bit more light fruit, a bit of tartness from the almost seltzery carbonation, and a hint of hops in the finish. Not bad at all for the style.

Bottle. Thin, with a light trace of hops. That’s really all I can say about it, meh. Wasn’t offensive by any means at least. EnSiFeRuM (501) - Quebec, CANADA - AUG 19, 2008
Bouteille verte de 330 ml. La bière est de couleur paille très pâle avec une mousse blanche fugace et une effervescence à grosses bulles. Au nez on respire des arômes de moufette et de grain avec des effluves de houblon floral. En bouche le corps est mince avec une effervescence moyenne. On goute des saveurs âcre de métal et de houblon désagrégé par la lumière.

12 oz. bottle courtesy of the 6 pack a friend brought to a beer tasting. Hmmmm. Pours a light golden hue with a prominent bubbly white head that dissipates quickly. Aromas are largely skunky, with touches of sweet malts. Taste is similar, with the skunk more muted. A decent lager, I guess. My friend told me that this is much better in India than in a bottle not in India. I believe him. Middle of the road macro-ish lager. iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - AUG 13, 2008
Bottle, local Indian. Skunky aroma. Required to help a hot curry go down. A bit pish. Borresteijn (6959) - Zaandam, NETHERLANDS - AUG 12, 2008
Bottle @ Indian restaurant. Watery lager, skunky hops, malty. Drinkable, not very good. jhliesen (832) - West Melbourne, Florida, USA - AUG 2, 2008
Bottle--Just another one of those yellow, semi-fizzy, watery and not a tasty type of bitter taste of beer. Been there, drank it and rated it. Produce place, 1.49 Floback (550) - Indianapolis, Indiana, USA - JUL 31, 2008
12 ounce bottle as part of a 12-pack gift set: Best Beers of the World<----inaccurate. Pours a gold color and a very minimal, fizzy white head. Aromas are wheat and slight skunky wheat. Green apple, more grains, biscuits and metal in the flavor. High carbonation and light body. Smooth and easy drinking.
