The original influence of England and its IPA's and stouts is no more noticable on the indian beer products. This country, like the others, has succombed to the european revolution of the pilsner, transforming the world in an ocean of pale lagers until the 21st century. And maybe longer in a lot of countries.
Like most countries of this part of the world, India remains little known to myself. But what I have discovered until now does not make me eager to taste more. Except this horrible, disgusting Golden Eagle which I absolutely must sample once again. Just to see if I'll be able to finish it this time ..
Some beers like Anokhi, Kingfisher and Cobra are available in Switzerland. Thank you to Dominique "domtom" Wiesmann for bringing me beers directly from India.
