look: 2.75 | smell: 2 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Poured into a shaker pint glass.

Look: Clear golden body with lots of rising bubbles. A white head recedes to a film with no lacing.

Aroma: Sweet malts interrupted by green bottle skunk.

Taste: A more grainy body than the aroma indicated, a touch of skunkiness before a subtle sour hop finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium bodied and dry.

Overall: If I'm going to drink a green bottled lager, I'll choose any beer but this one next time, if there ever will be a next time.

Only reason I would ever drink this crap is because it is the only - blind - option on tap at Bengal Brasserie, Wetherby... I felt sick from the oily old hops... beer does go with curry: ipa perhaps I am told, but this does nothing to support the dishes at all.

Pours a clear golden color, topped with about two fingers of white foam that soon settles down to only a small patch.
There is the basic malty and grainy aroma, easily picked up.
The taste starts sweet. It's followed by a neutral body, finishing with a slightly metaly bitterness. Slightly watery.
OK and drinkable, but not much taste there.

I have been able to procure this beer at various Binny's Beverage Depots in the Chicago, Red Robin Liquors in Berwyn, Illinois, and Feldman's Market in McAllen, Texas. It was one of the more popular Indian brands in the United States. It pours clear golden, small but persistent head, and above average carbonation. It has pleasantly bitter set taste, with hints of sweetness and grains. It goes down smooth without much of an edge, leaves a slight bitter aftertaste, and is light and less filling.
