The first thing you’re offered when you enter Goa, King’s is fast disappearing because of people opting for more familiar beers that are sold at the same price. Of course, it’s absolutely senseless to drink Kingfisher or Tuborg at a shack on any beach of Goa, but who’s going to tell the silly public that? King’s Black Label Pilsner smells like stale bread and has a malty zing that evaporates off the tongue almost immediately to make way for faint hops and a semi-dry end. Light enough to down by the dozen, King’s beer is so special because it is brewed and sold only in Goa. Available in a 375 ml bottle and at 4.85% alcohol strength, King’s Black Label Pilsner is now an endangered species – hunt it down the next time you’re in Goa and knock back as many pints as you can before it goes extinct.
