This is sort of bland tasting for a pale lager. I am getting slight grass, faint hops, barley. I have had other pale lagers that were better than this & to top it off there is NO DATE on the bottle as well. Cheers! C

Had on tap. Very adjunct, yet at the same time has some details that set a part for the positive in the euro pale lager. Some citrus and a decent among of hops, more in the spicey and grassy spectrum. But the adjunct is so strong, and the body is very watery. So perhaps the best Indian beer easily available?

Review: 330 ml green bottle of Kingfisher Premium Lager Beer: ABV: 4.8% vol

Like the logo of the beer, a nice and striking picture of a Kingfisher.

On pour get a decent sized white frothy head, and a golden amber coloured beer, some small carbonation going on. Some lacing on the glass. Overall, not a bad looker.

Typical lager smell, with a very particular hint of sweet malts, barely and corn, slightly metallic as well.

Taste is ….bit citrusy and very, very hoppy, not smooth anyway.
Ok not bad, got some tastes…… the malts, the corn, the citrus, and the barley, and the beer has some character, but might need to drink again for further assessment. To be honest It was not what I was expecting. I was getting ready for another generic tasting lager but this is slightly different, and it kind of threw me to be honest! The beer has a bitter taste to it that’s a bit sweet.
Wholesome taste, and for a lager not exactly sessionable, but it certainly had a bit of a kick to it. Overall, an interesting beer and one I would like to revisit again. Must try and get it the next time I am having an Indian curry! (cheesy, I know!)

On Veterans Day 2017, I am delving into The Bottle Backlog here at Chez Woody to see what is what in Whoville. This whatzis is from Subs & Six Packs here in Lancaster Co., PA. I do not hold out a lot of hope for this beer, though.

From the bottle: "Since 1857"; "The Finest Malted Barley & Hops".

I Pop!ped the cap & began another slow, gentle pour into the awaiting glass. Once decanted, an in-glass swirl raised two fingers of foamy, eggshell-white head with decent retention that left a surprising amount of lacing in its wake. Color was Golden-Amber (SRM = > 5, < 7) with NE-quality clarity, prompting The Gelt Gang of Mammon, Midas & Croesus to do an about-face & come running back into my kitchen for a taste. Nose had a mild honey-like sweetness, indicative of a Lager, but there was nothing distinguishing about it. Mouthfeel was medium. The taste was odd, not as sweet as the nose had led me to expect, but enough to make me wonder what sort of hops they used. There was a bitterness that was clearly hops-driven, but it was not the usual grassiness of Noble hops. It was not skunked, either. It was just ... odd. Finish was semi-dry, kind of unobtrusive & generally a ho-hum in total. I might drink it again if I were at an Indian restaurant where it was being served, but otherwise, it gets a pass in the future.

From Festival de las Naciones. In Teku glass. Playing Broken Age. Watery, without much taste nor aroma apart from a unpleasant grassy hops presence that instead of giving it some character spoil its flatness
