From the bottle, it pours a golden amber with a moderate head that lasts a bit. Some grain in the nose. The mouth gets a touch of bitterness in the beer, along with some malt. Slight aftertaste.

Had it and can't say nothing nice about it, either. So, best to to say nothing at all.

Bring on the Tandoori Chicken.

It's the thought that counts, contract brew notwithstanding. Decent enough, clean, crisp, light color and flavor, not demanding even for wine drinkers. Appearance is it's best attribute.

A food beer for a theme dinner.

0,33l bottle.
Clear, but not crystal golden beer with 1-finger white head, moderate retention.
Smell - grain, rice.
Taste - grainy with decent hop presence.
Light body, good carbonation.

Clear pale golden with a decent head of foam. Very weak smell of hops and malt. Taste is a bit stronger: malt and hops again. Taste tends to lean more to the bitter than the sweet side, which is alright with me. Moderately crispy and refreshing. Oh well, just a run-of-the-mill pilsener, but these brews are all about context. In tropical Bangalore, with 50 degrees Celsius and no rain, right after finishing a mutton vindaloo, these beers are probably worth their weight in gold.

Brewed under contract in New York. There's not much to this beer--green bottle means it's pretty skunked. Oh boy. Grainy, fairly gritty, quite herbal. Moderate-high carbonation and middle-of-the-road body. It's far from poison, but doesn't really do anything to distinguish itself from the rest of the pack. I'd happily enjoy a couple with some spicy Indian food, but . . . that's about it.
