SledgeJr (3577) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - MAY 17, 2004
UPDATED: APR 5, 2007 In the bottle. A very visually pleasing lager. Tiny bubbles in the head with outstanding lace left in the glass. Standard global lager yellow. Aroma present, but unremarkable. Solid bitterness that is pretty boring as well. Ive only had this in Indian restaurants, so maybe my fondness is tied to the good food I have when drinking it. UPDATE 4/07: In the 650 mL bottle from Ahmads. Fairly crappy. Mildy skunked and completely characterless pale lager swill. What was I thinking at first to rate this a 2.5?

IslandHaole (1228) - Mililani, Hawaii, USA - MAY 14, 2004
Typical Asian Lager, clear golden with medium white head. Some grassy notes in the nose. A very light body, corn syrup sweetness with a slight citrus tang. Mild bittering hops in the finish. Bland but would wash down curry good enough.

BckDich (5464) - McCall, Idaho, USA - MAY 5, 2004
Pale hazy straw color, some head. The aroma is not as foul as the flying horse before this but its not something to write home about. Some hops, metallic notes & an acidic citrusy bite. Flavor is bland, watery & with the same acidity. Finishes bland. International lager should be its own style. Definately some rice there. The tail is like Im sucking on a penny. Not worth it.

harlequinn (2744) - Tacoma, Washington, USA - MAY 4, 2004
Crap, Crap, Double Crap...A premium lager eh...well this one has a golden piss yellow color, with a fast soda head. Got a serious skunk aroma going on. Tastes just as I expected it to, the finish is smooth but that is about all this one has going for it.

civforprez (229) - Galesburg, Illinois, USA - MAY 1, 2004
Little head, light gold color and more hops than a regular American lager. But not worth the price of admission.

SG (465) - Valley Center, California, USA - APR 22, 2004
Drinkable, bland, and better than quite a few beers I've had from India. Thin palate, yellow color. Pretty abysmal overall though.

TheBeerCollector (633) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - APR 21, 2004
I did not expect much from this beer being as it is described as "Premium" on the label but I was a little surprised by how smooth it was. The aroma is skunky which makes you fear your first sip, but once taken, the flavor is not so bad.

Skip (206) - Indiana, USA - APR 14, 2004
Typical in the not-so-great traditions of beers from the subcontinent. Probably the best of its compatriots.

DocLock (10085) - Lower Pottsgrove, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 5, 2004
UPDATED: DEC 13, 2004 Rerate after being given a fresh bottle by a friend. Poured pale yellow. Aroma sort of yeasty/peaty. Tasted slightly hoppy, slightly crisp, but nothing to write home about. They drink this in India, but they cant have a cheeseburger...whats up with that? Then again, if cattle really are Gods, Im totally screwed. Id rather drink Ganges river water than ever drink this again.

Tessic (1061) - Brantford, Ontario, CANADA - APR 5, 2004
This one poured a light yellow with next to no head. Even after a rough pour. Doughy Yeast is first to the nose. Cheesy earth notes. Initial taste had a smoky flavour to it. Hickory to be exact. With slight cheesy flavours. Finish was watery, with the palate the same other than the light smoke flavour. OK I guess...
