Truely a mid-grade lager. Nothing too special at all, but coming from India i was a little suprised it did not taste horrible.
This beer made me want to vomit, especially since that was the nose. I sipped it because I could not rate it without at least a tast. It was the same. BeerAteHer (384) - St. Paul, Minnesota, USA - MAY 4, 2005
I would have to say I respect this beer. It has a strong bready feel throughout. Very profound but cancelling hops & malts. I’ll never understand what was in the bottom of that bottle -- were they cow chips from the religious rites of the Ganges? [Did I DRINK any?!] robertsreality (2460) - Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Yellow Coloring. I Was Expecting The Worst From This Beer, But It Acutally Isn’t All That Bad. The Flavor Has Good Malt and Hops Balance to It...sweet and a Pinch Fruity....Very Decent For the Style. Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - SEP 14, 2004
Pale yellow, no head...rather lackluster appearance.
Aroma is corny sweet and bland...nothing more to say...
Taste is more of the same, it’s wet and passes easily past the lips, an okay beverage if your mouth is on fire, but not much of a beer at all.
Somehow, I expected better, not sure why, but this is an avoidable dude. I could’ve gotten an old bottle?
"Perfect companion for curry", promises the label, but I beg to differ. A tasty, not-too-bitter IPA would do the trick better. something with sufficient flavor to match the heat of spice. Just being moist doesn’t cut it.
(Although, it’s got enough malt and body to make it a better choice than a Swiller Lite or a Crudweiser...)

Very yellow/golden color. Kind of a sweet aroma with a little citrus. Taste wasn’t nearly as bad as I feared. A little malt and hops, possibly some sweet grass as well. It didn’t reak of skunk or other trash that is present in most swill. I wouldn’t drink this by choice, but given a choice out of all the Pale Lagers I’ve had, this is probably towards the top.

Bottle. Poured a small fizzy white head with fine sized bubbles that mostly diminished. Fast rising carbonation, transparent and a yellow hue. Malty and somewhat of a skunky nose. Malty flavor. Tingly mouthfeel. Light bodied beer with no lacing observed. thedm (6319) - Fort Wayne, Indiana, USA - SEP 4, 2004
This bottled brew poured a small sized head of mostly diminishing finely sized white colored bubbles that left behind a fair lacing. The body was transparent softly carbonated and yellow orange in color. The aroma was lagerish mixed with dirty socks. The mouth feel was mildly tingly with a mellow finish. The flavor contained notes of malt and mild dough with a little grass and sweet malt. PorterPounder (8396) - Tallahassee, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2004
Yes, I bought this beacuse of the funny, obviously western-inticing name and it was only $1.59 at Blue Max in Burnsville, Mn. Pleasantly surprised though. Light golden appearance, light white head that sticks around for a while. Yeasty, wort-like aroma that was not expected. Flavor has some candy sweetness to it with a bit of banana swimming around in the shadows. Also detect some nectarines in there, odd. Mouthfeel is decent, creamy to say the least. Probably the most complex Indian beer I have had to date. Eyedrinkale (3235) - Astoria, New York, USA - MAR 21, 2004
Clear yellow with nice head when poured in medium tulip glass. Nice sour apricot aroma. Malty and sweet, this stuff is REAL smooth. Label says Perfect With Curry, and I can see why. I would drink this again. 21iceman40 (1735) - Grafton, Wisconsin, USA - MAR 6, 2004
