An India Pale Ale insofar as this is precisely the type of swill that was being guzzled off the black market when I visited that home country of mine two years. With its closest counterpart perhaps something like Kingfisher, Alexander Keith's IPA is a clevel cover for what is a light British pale ale like Boddington's at best or a good commercial adjunct lager at its worst.
Though up front a watered and honeyed herb wash coats the tongue and seems very British, the finish fades into the lingering stale flavors that come from mass produced beer. Piss colored and wholly uninteresting, this beer's saving grace is its compatibility with most spicy, citrusy, or fried foods. Indian or Mexican cuisine is a must with this beer -- anything full-flavored enough to overshadow it -- with a bias toward lime, which compensates for the beer's hop deficiency.
