Best of class for the indian pale lagers, but thats not saying much. Mild smell crisp flavor but ultimatly still a run of the mill mass produced lager. It goes bettet with food than on its own.

This is not the worst beer I have ever had but it does come in a very close second until you have got use to the taste. First time I had ever had a sweet tasting beer. Unfortunately, it is the only beer readily available in most of rural India so it is either that or nothing. After about 6 of the things (not all at once. That I think might be impossible), it no longer tastes so bad. Actually, I think it might depend on just how thirsty one is.
