Flying Horse Royal Lager is a descent beer to enjoy while dining on Indian Cuisine. Stand alone, I would not buy it off the shelf. It pours a nice golden color out of a 22oz bottle, with a moderately sized foamy head. Smell is somewhat yeasty. Taste is pleasant, with a crisp.

look: 3.25 | smell: 1.5 | taste: 2 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.75

A - Pale and fizzy. Very golden color.

S - No real smell. Bland and lacking anything.

T - Light. Very mild in taste.

M - Loses any great sensation very quickly, and quickly becomes a standard lager.

O - A bit better than any big manufactured lager I've had, but overall, average.

2.84/5  rDev -5%
look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 3

A: The beer is crystal clear light yellow in color and has a moderate amount of visible carbonation. It poured with a finger high bright white head that gradually died down but consistently left a thin head covering the surface.
S: Light aromas of rice adjuncts are present in the nose along with some hints of corn.
T: The taste mostly follows the smell and has flavors of adjunct malts along with slight hints of bitterness.
M: It feels light-bodied and a little watery on the palate with a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: There's nothing overly special about this beer, but it seems a cut above most American Adjunct Lagers. It's easy to drink and seems like it would pair well to cool off some spicy vindaloo if you are eating Indian food.

3.35/5  rDev +12%
look: 3.75 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.25

Pours medium gold with a decent white head. No true lace but decent retention.

Mild pale malt notes, some bread and herbal notes.

Bready with some mild hop bitterness. Some grassy notes, a little corn, some raw grain. Malt is a little on the sweet side and not balanced out by hop bitterness. But, this is fairly smooth. Crisp enough in the finish.

Medium to medium light body. Good carbonation.

Ok brew. The malt and bitterness isn't cloying or horribly out of balance. Worked well with my meal.

Bottled 8/2012.

Pours a clear yellow with a foamy light beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace slowly drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is fairly faint but I am getting some malt, grain, and some grassy aromas. Taste is much the same with grain, fruit, and grassy flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of hop bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is an average beer that is drinkable but nothing all that memorable in my opinion.
