650 ML
Served in a pokal glass

This beer pours a nice amber color and is topped with two inches of off white head.

The smell is sweet with caramel and toast. It also has that lovely imported skunk smell.

The taste is sweet with some biscuit and caramel flavor, and of course my favorite, skunk's ass.

Medium mouthfeel

I am not sure what I was thinking here. I am not a fan of skunked imported lagers yet in a moment of sheer stupidity I purchased one, and worse yet, I am drinking it hungover. Alcohol makes for bad decision making. Write that down.

At an Indian restaurant last night and decided to try a new beer, usually get a Taj Mahal and I will go back to that beer here. Pours a clear straw color with a one inch, poorly retained white head. Really nothing much to the smell or taste, rather bland. Very light bodied, moderately carbonated, thin mouth feel.

If you drink this without Indian food, I suppose it explains why the raters' average beat it up.
But if you drink this with good Indian food, it explains my much higher rating and why and with what I will have this again.

Bomber at Bombay Grill. As expected for an Asian lager, very pale, unsubstantial head. Flavor was OK, but not remarkable. A tad watery, made for accompanying Indian food. Overall, tended to be bland.

Standard fizzy yellow beer appearance. Corn vegetable aroma, mild grain. Its clearly in mild aal territory here.

Taste was super bland, make it as clean as possible. Why import this from half way around the world when there are several domestic examples of pretty much the same thing. Not all barley, mild, weak no hop or yeast flavors, lots of water. That's what you get with this, and a pricey tag to boot.

Not a terrible Indian beer.. Clear and fizzy, no head.. Smells kinda alc-y and gross but drinks clean - just some good ole cheap lager flavors that would go well with some spicy injun food

Flying Horse Royal Lager Beer has a thin, white head, a clear, bubbly, yellow-straw appearance, and little-to-no lacing left behind. The aroma is of sweet biscuit and soda cracker (non salted), and the flavor is of the same, with a mild, grassy hop note. Mouthfeel is light, and Flying Horse Royal Lager Beer finishes crisp, clean, and refreshing.

when you are going out for indian food, you can do a lot worse than this one. that said, i think you can also do a fair bit better. this has some appeal for sure, super light in color, not weighty in the belly like the food is, its a great palate cleanser and contrast. it also has a light hop profile, but an appreciable one, and thats lacking for me usually in indian lagers. unfortunately, its woefully under carbonated, and that hurts the lightness and overall experience. there is also a funny green apple flavor in the middle, and i cant ignore it. it doesnt clash with the food necessarily, but i dont like how distracting it is. it also finishes sweeter than a light lager should, adjuncty and not done. overall a beer to drink and not think too much about, thats when it tastes best.
