Brewed for the Connoisseur? Light yellow color with medium head. India is lucky that IPAs bear their name as their own beers leave little to be desired. Slightly flavorless though bubbly. Not much to talk about here. GoldenSpunky (120) - Rochester, New York, USA - JAN 29, 2005
Bottle at Thali of India 2005. Asked for Kingkfisher but got this beer instead. Pours golden-yellow with watery appearance. Aroma is of slight hops and barley. Tastes of watery corn and indian wheat and soybeans. Went decent with the dinner but this beer is definitely not made for the connisour. India definitely not known for their beers. winkle (478) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JAN 29, 2005
Colour - thin straw with a small head that legged it quickly. A pretty boring lager with some hops and malt thrown in for novelties sake. Clean nothing finish. Ok for hosing down an arse burning curry. brocker (99) - Salina, Utah, USA - JAN 18, 2005
Had this at an Indian restaurant.
This is one region of the planet where I have yet to find a decent brew.
It poured yellow, no head.
Smells bad, yeasty and medicinal.
Tastes grainy, phenolic, solventlike, and a little tart.
This was bad, just plain bad. Jine (903) - Nutley, New Jersey, USA - JAN 1, 2005
The Taj Mahal was built to be a tomb for the wife of the Maharrajah. While we are on the subject of tombs, this beer makes me wish for the grave. Really all I can say.

comes in a large 24 oz bottle, for the price a decent lager. nothing really special, nothing great either. bland slightly watery taste, kinda hoppy. SDbruboy (1863) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 30, 2004
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 (15326) - 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. Didn’t realise the ampersand co owned it. No longer in Scotland, no longer in Newcastle so they must be in India. Cornfield (5569) - 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. I’m 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.
