look: 3 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

A - A very pleasant golden straw colored with an ample white head. Unfortunately the head doesn't last long. The carbonation was more than ample so I would say the appearance is inviting.

S - A mild bready mixed with a slight skunkiness. The skunk factor didn't linger as I sampled the beer but the smell is pretty non-descript. Not much going on here.

T - Tastes like your basic mass produced lager with a slight sweetness at the initial taste. There isn't a significant amount of hops bitterness that grabs you. It essentially tastes like a basic domestic mass produced lager...If that is what Kingfisher was shooting for, they nailed it!

F - This feels like carbonated beer flavored water. It's very thin and leaves that domestic mass produced aftertaste in my mouth. My teeth feel like they had sweaters knitted on them. The carbonation however is very good and makes the beer drinkable in a pinch.

O - This certainly isn't a beer I will seek out again anytime soon. This is domestically mass produced under supervision from Kingfisher. I think there are better Indian beers out there worth trying. In this case, I think Kingfisher is trying to mimic other major domestic lagers. If this is the case the set the bar low and just cleared the bar
