Bottle poured into chilled glass in Mumbai. Slightly better than my West African lagers (Flag & Castel), but definitely in the same family.

Unremarkable yellow-golden lager color, quickly-dissipating foam, fairly carbonated and best served very, very cold against a hot day. Bit too much of a Bud Light-like aftertaste for. An unremarkable beer but enjoyable in cultural context.

Appearance - Pours a clear golden color with a centimeter thick, fluffy white head. Has almost no lacing.

Smell - Slightly sweet with a corn aroma that's most dominant. Also some grains and bread.

Taste - Pale malts, slightly sweet, corn, and skunk.

Mouthfeel - Light bodied with mild carbonation.

Overall - This is a pretty good beer. Light and crisp.

The last beer that was available at the India Restaurant and got it simply since I couldn't find it anywhere else.

A - This one actually had some nice deep golden color, almost like a pale ale with a 1/2 inch of fizzy head that again reduced to nothing. No lace ring but it got the most head out of the three.

S - What I noticed on this one was the strongest of lager yeast of the three but it gave way to a fruity aspect. Aside from that light cereal grains and actually some hops in the smell.

T - Well this one was pretty nice. Smooth crisp body and light hopping of typical lager flavors. Not bad overall. No vegital taste so I don't understand the low ratings...

M - Light in body.

Overall not a bad lager which really doesn't deserve the below average rating. Not my best style so it would only be something I would order again if at the restaurant.
