look: 3 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 3.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3

A- pours a pale yellow-golden color with a small fizzy white head with shirt retention

S- light and clean hop aroma with a sweet and grainy malt, thankfully no skunkiness coming from the green bottle

T- cooked sweet corn with just a touch of light herbal hop, finishes slightly sweet with clean malt at the end

M- light-medium body with moderate carbonation with a slick finish

O- not as bad as I thought it would be, it has more flavor than typical adjuncts, but not something I would reach for again

Bottle purchased and drank at Tandoor in Henrietta, NY.

Pours a clear golden fizzy yellow, with a half inch head, and no lacing.

Doesn't smell like much, a little bit of grass and grain.

Same thing with the taste. It's not that it tastes bad, per se, it just doesn't taste like much. Reminds me of a less bitter Budweiser. A little bit bitter, some grassy peppery hop flavors. But just not a whole lot.

Light bodied, well carbonated, crisp mouthfeel.

Good only if you're eating Indian food, not worth a separate purchase.

Yellowish in color and a bit hazy, head was fizzy and didn't last long or leave a lot of lacing.

Aroma is lightly sweet and somewhat grainy. Taste follows, but is near cloyingly sweet, accented with grain flavors, and a smidge of light floral hops that's barely detectable.

Body is light but the cloying sweetness overpowers the finish to the point where it would be hard to drink several of these in a session.

Overall I'm not at all impressed with this beer.

I was trying to be authentic while out to eat at an Indian restaurant. The bottle says this Indian beer was brewed about 4 hours away in Saratoga Springs New York. Sheesh.

Straw colored with a tight, thin head. Some foam lasts for almost half a glass which I guess is par for the course in pale lager land.

Floral aroma which I wasn't expecting. Honey and green apple peel. Tastes like it smells with some nice herbal hops in there.

Refreshing, floral, and sweet. Pale lagers ain't so bad when you don't throw a bunch of rice in it.
