Flying Horse Royal Lager Type: Lager ABV: %
Lively pour, plenty of carbonation and a delicate foam which is adequate but doesnít last too long. The color is pale golden and slightly hazy. Thereís a good presence in the aroma for this style, mostly sweet with some fruitiness as well as a floral hop and a brief hint of herbs. The palate works very well with a nice tingly sharp carbonation providing for a very refreshing and spritzy mouthfeel. Itís light to medium bodied. A malty sweetness defines the initial flavor, with a light berry-like fruitiness as well as a subdued citrus. Thereís a good crisp bitter finish and a little dryness. The aftertaste is not too long but adequate. It does leave a little sourness in the back and finishes a little sticky, but the hops are just bold enough.

Deserves a recommendation, reminding me very much of a German pilsner, and especially suited to Indian curries or sweeter chutney's.
