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.

12 oz. bottle

Pours clear golden yellow with a frothy creamy white foam head. Smells like sweet grainy barley malt with floral grassy hops. Tastes like sweet grainy malted barley with floral grassy hops. Feels light bodied, slick and crisp with moderate carbonation. Overall a nice pale lager.

It has the skunky pale taste to it, smells the same way. Not too light of a mouthful but light enough to go down easy and drink numerous of them, not great by any means but not bad.

Not bad. Pretty average lager. A little sting on the tongue. Moderate fizz. I would drink it if someone gave it to me but wouldn't go out of my way for it.
