Had this on 2017-09-26 in Warrenville, IL at Masala Indian restaurant.

A - Clear straw gold with a short white head and light lace

S - Very mild biscuit and not much else

T - Bread, honey, light lemon and grassy spice. More flavor than I expected from the aroma. Very sweet No perceptible bitterness.

M - Light body and medium carbonation.

O - Appropriate for my South Indian birthday dinner but I wouldn't seek it out otherwise.

I assume every low review here tried a stale bottle or something.

Crisp brown lager with a tongue taste of sweet iced tea, alkaline not very acidic, has many tea like floral notes in after taste, very malty brew much malt flavor, some hoppy bitterness

Not sure how to recommend a fresh source seem that is a problem for many here that have reviewed

I'd recommend an outlet beer / wine beer store with large turnover and selections

I only drink this beer when I dine at my fav Indian spots in town (mainly there's little to choose from). I don't think this is a horrible beer; it doesn't scream profundity but I've drank a lot worse in my time and it nicely compliments the intense spicy dishes I indulge in.

Crisp and light. Confused by the serious amount of negative reviews. It isn't trying to be something groundbreaking and it pairs fantastically with the complex flavors of Indian cuisine

For the style this is a dead ringer, straight down the middle american lager (brewed in "slowly" according to the bottle - in India.) Pours golden brass, aroma is malty. Flavor is better than a Bud, tastes is as expected crisp, light, relatively dry - not a bad lager if that's your thing.

Pale straw color with fizzy head and little lacing. Smells of cereal grains and tastes the same. Bubbly mouthfeel that feels just like Coors Light. Not the kind of beer to purchase every day or really any day. Don't waste your time or taste buds.
