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.

Conventional pale lager, nothing more, nothing less. Faint aroma and taste of malted grains. Mouthfeel is watery. Good with Indian food, at least, helps put out the flames

A friend brought it over for me to try, so I split it with him. Golden yellow pour, good head. The aroma at first is off, after a minute or 2 kinda bland. The taste is light, some grassy hops, finishes slightly bitter. The body is light, good carbonation. Not something I would pick up, but if offered it is not terrible.
