This appears to be a faux "foriegn" beer that somehow originates somewhere in Ontario, and doesn't leave much of a paper trail based on the info provided on the label. But this is the age of Google...

It pours out an average looking lager, golden with aggressive carbonation, pale straw when held to direct light. Large tight spongy white head with fantastic retention and thick sticky lacing, a good sign from this mystery beer of questionable origins.

Crisp biscuity malt right up front on the nose, a touch of roasted corn, kind of reminds me of Alexander Keiths already. Hops are mild and faint, just a hint of grass.

And then the party ends at the flavour, as it so often does. Flat tasting malt, some cooked veggies, and some slap and tickle from the hops, but nothing that really draws me to go back for more. The grains seem to go sour soon enough, adjuncts reminiscent of over-boiled cabbage, and the hops go an unfreindly herbal.

The mouthfeel is still fairly smooth, a bit soapy in texture.

It has its moments, but falls flat in the flavour dep't, making this lager one to pass by. A domestic beer wearing a fake moustache.

Why do I only see this at Indian restaurants in Edmonton? Did they all band together to buy up the lot before it was retired or something?

This beer pours a clear pale golden colour, with three fingers of thin soapy white head, which leaves some sparse, random flecks of lace around the glass as it sinks away. It smells of light grain malt, and grassy, skunky hops. The taste is more mild, sweet white grain, and stinkweedy hops. The carbonation is on the low side, but kind of frizzy, the body sweet and cloying, and it finishes with an organic mess of bitter/skanky aftertaste.

Yet another beer that shouldn't be touched with a ten-foot pole, but, due to its particular, if not otherwise desirable, nature, it works well enough to help quench the sexy Vindaloo fire in my gullet. And I enjoyed playing "Guess where this is from" while reading the various locales/nationalities mentioned on the label.

Bottle at Masse's Inddian Restaurant- Sparkling gold pour, topped with a short lived bleached white fizz. Very subtle grass/hay aroma with lots of grain and sugar. Sweet grassy and grain flavour, slightly bitter and floral, but it is quite subtle. No real adjunct detectable, but not much in the way of flavour. Quick, spritzy finish.

sampled 07/ 26/ 2008...from tasting notes:

Bottle, from Vijay's.

Pale weak heading, vanishes quickly. Very fizzy. Little nose to speak of just a sort of stale graininess. Weak mouth feel, watery, light malt taste little or no detectable hops fast spritzy finish ..clean taste what little there is of it. I suppose the ise is to guzzel this stuff like seltzer water with hot food, but this did little to light up the beef Vidaloo I had. Just another weak pale commercial lager.

Just another anonymous macro style beer. Underlying sweet, corny character, slightly sticky finish. Clear golden colour, decent head and some lace.

Obviously something just cobbled together on the cheap and bottled to target a specific market niche. This one is all about the label on the bottle, not the brew. Cynical.
