Haywards 5000 Super Premium Beer

A Super-Premium beer no less! What could possibly go wrong?!
Having spent a large portion of my first 35 years of life in Indian restaurants, I though that I had seen most of the Indian based adjunct lagers that one could be exposed to , but this was a new one on me. Went to an Atlanta curry house and sw it on the menu, but they were out. A few days later i picked up this gold foiled, 650 mL bottle at Total Wine, Perimeter, Atlanta, GA, USA for $2.49 (I think).
There really is very little to report her in terms of the appearance (golden clarity, initially high carbonation, frothy head, small amount of lace and retention), nose (largely bland but with a grainy sweetness), taste (INCREDIBLY sweet, even by the standards normally associated with such things), or the drinkability (OK for what it is and it could wash down a hot curry), but for me the beer has a certain, strange charm. Perhaps it’s the curry association, maybe the presentation, or perhaps even the marketing, but this is a beer that I enjoyed drinking and would re-visit.
If you cannot stand the sweetness I wouldn’t be surprised, and to be fair I am not exactly recommending this, but for me it was a decent example of something that I was expecting little from.
