WE CANT COMPLETE OUR SATURDAY EVE WITHOUT KINGFISHER!
****
As a lager its an enjoyable pint nothing to strong upfront and doesen't have a big kick back, an easy pint Its not a distinctive taste thats memorable and makes you pine for more. It depends on what sort of night i'm on but i can see myself ordering it for a cheeky pint here and there ...

Kingfisher beer made in India is the best beer I have tasted during my trips around the world. It is especially very tasty with spicy food

can only add to it - easily available even though quality sometimes differs. Best I had was in Bangalore -
Saw these in the liquor stores 2 weeks ago, and have been going back to grab a few bottles along with others. Quite the smooth beer. How this beer can be rated scratchy, is beyong me. Says it right on the bottle: Serve cool.

I am a regular user of KF strong. During last purchase i found one bottle with full of forgin meterials. so i did'nt open and it is still with me.I purchased it from my native town chalakudy. It is bottled by united breweries Palakkad packed on july 06- batch no: k15. please do me the needful

good beer. tastes good in goa and bangalore. mass produced, of late. hence quality is in question. let's watch out :)

You guys have got to be kidding with your high marks for this beer. Outside it's native India it is a very average (admittedly very well marketed) lager. The recipe and standard of ingredients is decidedly ordinary and the taste... well if you compare it to Bud, it is probably a king, but compare it to some of the better European pure beers and it becomes a peasant! Back in it's home country (A place I love incidenatally, and mean no disrespect to) one simply drinks it because let's be honest, there is little else available. I have witnessed many backpaccker attemp what appear to be elaborate scintific experimets with paper napkins in the neck of the bottle and inverted bottles submerged in glasses of water in order to remove the various preservatives included. I have not yet found any way of improving the quality. It does however do exatly what it is supposed to do, though I would not advise anyone to rely too heavily on the ABV figure on the label as this can vary from bottle to bottle. While we ae in fabulous places like India we make allowances for for alot of things that we would expect to be better at home, and rightly so. Then when we get home we forget the bad bits and choose only to remember the good bits. For me not so with Kingfisher... but I am suer I will drink it again at some point. Judge a country not by it's beer, but by it's people who drink it's beer!

Wat i can sayt is that i love it and it is the NO.1 brand

Living in NZ I found some beers to be okay for a while but soon went off them. I tried kingfisher brewed in India and was most impressed excellent with food and great just having a quiet one in the evening. Trouble is it is now brewed in NZ and has lost its zing. Please can we have the imported variety back
*****
Great beer unlike some dirty German beers which are tasteless and fake US brews with big advertisements but no fizz in the beers. I agree some eastern european beers are great. However, Germans are not known for food or drinks. Germans are known only for cold steel designs and concrete like feelings. Scary dumb lot... can't speak good English too...

most common beer in India by far. I think it is drinkable, but only as a last resort. This is often the case in india...:(

Hi All, I give a 10 to the Kingfisher brewed and bottled in Goa/ Bangalore in India.But the Kiwi kind gets a 2 from me.I was ovwejoyed to see it available at the local Bottle shop but was sorely disapointed when I and a few friends tasted it.Yeah I spat it out.Still have 2 stubbies sitting on the mabntle piece. I wish we could get the real stuff out here in Oz. Cheers!!!
*****
A top brand brewed in uk,should be available in english pubs and clubs.Goes well with all kind of food and of course our curry.
****
Well u can rate this beer as a beer ...... As beer got everything a beer lover finds in

I've often had Kingfisher and other "Indian" beers in the US and UK, almost always at Indian restaurants. It's good, straightforward beer-for-food, an undemanding - and unexciting - lager. On Wednesday I tasted Kingfisher in its native habitat: in a restaurant in Pune, India. What a difference. Compared with the Kingfisher I knew, the domestic version starts out much crisper on the palate, displays slightly Bavarian elements in the middle, and has a very pleasing touch of bitterness at the end. Outstanding!
*****
I just came from a jurney in india 4 the first time and i found the kingfisher beer as one of the best beer that i ever drunk all over the world.
***
Im forced to say I like it because I grew up on it. Its the only beer available on tap in Bangalore. But compared to other brands like Amstel, Labbats and Molson, it doesnt stand a chance. Its comparitively too rough and scratchy going down.
*****
This is definitely one of the best light beers. It has been winning awards at most beer fests. It is crisp, light with that mild hop flavour very refreshing especially on a hot Sunday afternoon. My friends and colleagues from the UK just buy packs of this stuff to take home. It's now available in the UK too.
*****
This is truly a delicious beer - many thanks to the guy in the bottleshop who put us on to it! It is very crisp and refreshing and has a great aftertaste.
*****
Its really smooth and goes down your palate. Can have upto 6 bottles w/o any hangover the next day
****
Actually closer to 7.5. I enjoy it alot while traveling in India. It seems to not travel as well. The Kingfisher I got here in the US was pretty skunky. It is a nice, light and refreshing beer when consumed in India. I especially liked the catchphrase printed on the export cases; "most thrilling chilled!" yeah, i suppose i wouldn;t be too thrilled with it warm...
*****
One of the finest I have had

They say Indian Beers are on the heavy side. Well, one might feel that way considering the mere size of our bottles, but since pint culture has come about, beers are getting more and more comfortable to consume..in bulk! The kingfisher pint is the best thing to have happened to Indian beer in a long time. Though the same beer, I can swear it tastes lighter and better than the regular big bottle of kingfisher and the term 'packing in a six pack' makes perfect sense with it. Its easy to fit in the fridge and makes for a lovely evening. except, when in an expensive bar in Delhi..the Big Kingfisher is a better idea..merely because it costs just a bit more than the pint and lasts longer. cheers

I am not a beer fan, I usually drink wine, but when I tried KingFisher I was convinced I was missing out! It's my favorite beer now, and compliments all food - especially spicy Indian food - gorgeously. They need to start carrying it in more bars here in the US.
****
Kingfisher is a pretty solid beer and handles itself well with spicy food - all the more amazing considering how light it sits on the palate. Saved my life once in Aurangabad - honestly!
i think its good but agree not as nice as in india brwed in new zealand now
****
I loved this beer when I was India but I haven't found it very tasty in the US. For best enjoyment you need to go to Bangalore and have a couple in the Purple Haze rock club with some spicy chicken!

This was the best example of a Martime brew
