The foam was light wheat/ white in color. The color was a nice honey pils. The smell was crisp and clean with a nice hoppy feel. The taste had a good hops overtone with a fruity undertone and wheat highlights. Mouthfeel - smooth and crisp. Drinkability - easy going down.

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.

Bottled 8/2011.

Pours a crystal clear yellow with a fizzy tan head that settles to wisps of lace on top of the beer. Tiny dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of malt, grain, honey, and some grass and hay aromas. There is a slight skunky aroma that is present too. Taste is of malt, grain, honey, and some grape juice flavors. There is a mild bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a pretty average beer that is drinkable and not as bad as I thought it was going to be.
