It's usually what I can find at an Indian restaurant. It's okay for cutting spiciness, but overall a pretty mediocre brew. It's grainy and dry without any real character.

This beer tasted so much better in India. I had it in the states and didn't care for it. If you get a chance to go to India, definitely give it a try.

Appearance – Golden coloured with a lot of effervescent carbon bubbles (probably mechanically added), supports a decent head that dies almost as soon as you look at it.

Smell - Smelling like a Heineken this lager and has a clear smell of alcohol to it. There is also an almost chalky, dusty smell to this beer. There is a mechanical carbon smell to this like the smell you get from sparkling water… just odd.

Taste – In terms of taste there is a deep flavour of the barley grains and it almost reminds me of old Amstel. There is some hop flavour to this. Beyond that this is a pedestrian beer.

Mouthfeel – Very dry and light bodied also towards the thin end of the scale although there is plenty of carbon in the mouth.

Overall – This is a less than average Lager definitely not the best in the world but a hell of a long way removed from the worst. When I drank this in India you had to up end it in water to let the glycerine fall out or it gave the runs. That said in the Thar Desert it was pretty drinkable but we were so thirsty we may have settled for camel piss. And this beer I suspect is not far removed. The flavour lingers for a good time which is always nice if you are drinking something good but in this case it is not….
