12 oz. bottle in a local Indian Restaurant. Pours golden yellow with a small, fizzy head. Pretty poor lager, smelled and tasted adjuncty along with sharp hoppiness, some soap and a harsh bite in the finish. Agressive carbonation and thin body. At least it worked to cut the curry flavors when necessary. imdownthepub (14469) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2004
Bottled, pasteurised. Straw coloured with fizzed head. A recent addition to the beer range in my favourite Indian Restaurant. This is a soft asian lager beer, very much overcarbonated with a soupcon of hops in there somewhere. Didnít realise the ampersand co owned it. No longer in Scotland, no longer in Newcastle so they must be in India. Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - SEP 18, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 6, 2005 Very pale in color, tighly carbonated, small head, with a light malt and grass aroma. Not much taste but a midly bitter finish. Iím glad I bought only one bottle.jgentgesdo (694) - Tulsa, Oklahoma, USA - AUG 25, 2004

Pours pale yellow with tight head. Nose is grassy/floral. Very little taste but tight carbonation, bitter aftertaste. Actually refreshing with Indian food but not drinkable otherwise. RedEft (155) - Wichita, Kansas, USA - AUG 6, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 24, 2006 Very pale yellow with a lingering, small head. Aroma is malty and grassy. Very light and fizzy with a very unique lager finish...not sure if itís necessarily good, but certainly unique. Seems to go well with the spicy mattar paneer! I donít know that Iíd want to just drink this beer without a spicy meal though. Iíd say itís a medium level lager that can definitely claim a unique taste.

Yellow and fizzy...little metallic scent...the best thing about this beer is the secret ingredient: whatever the hell they put in it that instantly relieves pain from curry...FYI, it doesnít do it with any other spicy thing but damn it does a fine job! oldmonk420 (26) - New York, USA - JUN 30, 2004
Well the appearance was scary. Little bits and chunks of things floating in the bottom. The aroma is VERY VERY skunky. Not fresh at all. Reminds me of spoil milk, eggs, etc. Ewww... Light gold color to it. Kinda like piss. Little hops, metallic notes, very acidic. The finished is just horrible. After one sip I had to stop drinking it. Scary beer!! WARNING WARNING DO NOT DRINK!!

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. Iíve 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 Ahmadís. Fairly crappy. Mildy skunked and completely characterless pale lager swill. What was I thinking at first to rate this a 2.5?

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. BŁckDich (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 itís 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 Iím sucking on a penny. Not worth it.
