Kingfisher in India is GOD AWFUL. It has to be freezing to be palatable. I drank a lot of this because, well, most of the time it is all you can find. If you read the label in India, it actually lists corn syrup and "grain". What grain?? And they also won't tell you the abv because it varies.

Kingfisher in the UK is noticeable higher of quality.

There are so many worse examples, but this is still a pretty bland beer.
