Lately I am finding it has become very hard to find light beers both cans and bottles, Delhi particularly and North India in general.
Netheir are available all those famous brands that used to taste good aswell.

Also all the beers either new enterants like Budwiser or older ones like Godfather are very bitter. Beers in India used to be not so bitter like whatsoever we get now.

Lets us discuss best beers available or not available in your region.

Look for Himalaya (formerly Himalaya Blue) from Sikkim. Old Monk beer has to be the worst. Beer is used to attract & drown snails. They refused that awful of a bait. Maybe they await Heiffenweizen..

Beer in India has always seemed to me to somewhat like beer in Mexico . . . (I heard this in a small Mexican town) . . . while I don't exactly remember the question, the answer was: "If it wasn't for bad beer there'd be no beer at all." Kinda mirrors my own experience with Indian beer.

If it is in reference to Indian made beers, the title should be changed to "The Least Awful Suspicious Yellow Liquid Marketed as Beer", including brands like carlsberg and heineken. I remember when heineken was imported and cost a bomb(at least, relative to indian beers), but at least it tasted good.

Once upon a time Khajuraho was the order regularly. Later on it was Cannon 10000. Nowadays it is Kingfisher Strong.

Sandpiper used to come from sikkim waters and it was good not seen now.

As for old monk as beer instead of rum by Mohan Makins, I think it is Golden Eagle. Used to rule Delhi when we were kids.
It is still coming but has most awful taste in India.

Another bad name is Hunter.

Glycerine as preservative in indian beers

It may be the glycerine used as a preservative in beers brewed in india..both indian and foreign brands brewed in india use glycerin. Another source relates it to the tannins and proteins that are not fully filtered out.... The hot temps may lead to this

I always suspected it is Glycrin. More or less of it must be making diffrence.

But cans and Bottle do not mention its presence.

1. Dansberg. Made in Sikkim and owned by the actor Danny Denzogpa. Surprisingly good and must be the good quality water.

2. KF Ultra. Good but may taste different in different states. Is it the water again?

Don't like any of the international brands brewed here. Bud and Tuborg are bitter. Heineken is okay. There is a strong preference for strong beers in South India from the interior markets. Stronger the beer, stronger the kick?

Have seen KF Draught in cans. Need to taste it.

You may be right since they own both..

As a public safety measure I would advise a skull & cross bones label..

Yes Dansberg is best one I have tasted and I forget the name when I mentioned sand piper.

But again it is not available now in Delhi markets , Mr. Danny knows better.

Golden Eagle is supposed to be vintage brand but no it is Awful now.

As for old monk rum it do is vintage one but is fast losing market to lesser known rival brand Celebration, only due to obsolete marketing procedures.

But for beer what ever technology they adopt for marketing its taste will sink the ship.

Sand Piper is a beer from Haryana. Most of the Haryana beers are named after birds. Rosy pelican is another decent beer.
