There is a curious sound this beer makes when you poor it. It is eactly like pouring a fizzy soda. Its quite loud. The head is gone in a flash and leaves a few meager stains on the surface of a beer that both (and I'm not kidding here) looks and smells exactly like apple juice.

Taste is very light in this watery brew. It is tangy with an uncontrolled fruit off-flavor. Probably won't be finishing this. It isn't particularly offensive, its just kind of a "why bother?" beer. Unpleasent aftertaste is a big blow to drinkability.

look: 4.25 | smell: 3 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

12oz bottle batch 12/12

look is a clear straw color, some odd floaties, and a talk frail head that fades to a ring. smell is slightly sweet, corny, grainy. light, crisp, with a husky corniness and slight english hopping. finish is surprisingly malty, but otherwise this drinks like an exceptionally clean and tasty american adjunct.

good everyday drinkin' stuff.... from India
5/5 as far as a(i)al's go

Maharaja Premium India Pilsner has a medium, foamy head, a clear, yellow-golden appearance, some bubble steams, and a bit of lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet, full, and pungent barley malt, biscuit, grass, and bread dough. Taste is of bready malt, charcoal, grass, sourness, a bit of green apple, and a faint hop bitterness at the end. Mouthfeel is light and watery, and Maharaja Premium India Pilsner finishes crisp, clean, refreshing, and mild. Overall, this is a good beer, and it’s worth a try.

I found this brew pretty thin and overall rather bland. Like the rest of brews from India, this one was rather sweet. It is definitely something I could easily drink on a hot day though. Would be curious to try a more robust version with a lot of depth if it ever came out.
