look: 2.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.5

I got this one more for the label for my collection than for the contents of the bottle. But once opened, I had to drink it, didn't I.
I had not read any reviews to colour my opinion beforehand, but I was still leery about this when it was poured. It turns out that my beer tasting abilities are in line with most of the other BAs.
The colour was just a generic yellow, and there was no head to speak of. Not the most appealing start.
The smell was faint. I picked up on some sweet malts, and the hops are a bit floral or herbal. -Can't pin it down more than that. Maybe because there just isn't more to identify.
Taste was rather generic and inoffensive. Nothing to write home about. Tastes like it smells - bit of sweet malt, mild bitters. Maybe like a Bud on steroids.
Mouthfeel was a surprise! Crisp, with livlier carbonation than expected. No finish or aftertaste to speak of.
Drinkability is open for discussion. Maybe if I were in a Moroccan desert, and it came to a choice between Casablanca and BMC, I would take this one, if someone else was buying.
I wonder how well this sells in its home country?

I have drank this beer in both the United States (multiple locations) and in Morocco in a variety locations. It seemed weird drinking it inside Morocco, since it is an Islamic nation, but the wiedness fades because Morocco is modern country and most people drink. It pours hazy golden, little carbonation, and a slim head. It has a hints of vegetables, wheat, hops, and sweetness that congregate in the malty taste. It has a light edge, little aftertaste, and finishes neutral.

You can get this beer in many locations in the United States (Illinois, Missouri, and Texas) and everywhere in Morocco.

look: 3.25 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

Pale golden colored lager with a bit of haziness. A quarter inch thick head is on top. I see plenty of carbonation bubbles inside. Aroma is slightly metallic and not much else. Mouth is a bit salty and thin. Taste is faintly that of bittering hops,and pale malt with a quick and slightly metallic finish.

look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 2.75

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some particulates near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a short white head that quickly dissipated, leaving only a patch of bubbles on the surface.
S: Light aromas of apples are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors and bits of sweetness. Hints of grainy malts are also noticeable.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: There's nothing really special about the smell or taste of this beer, but it is rather easy to drink.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.75 | feel: 3 | overall: 3

A: Pours a clear medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a small patch of thick film surrounded by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of grainy malts with lighter hints of rice adjuncts and some light floral/grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of grainy malts with some light amounts of rice adjuncts and a moderate amount of light fruit (apple juice) sweetness. There is a hint of grassy and floral hops that impart a very light amount of bitterness which fades quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: This beer is not anything special about this beer but it is not offensive or anything like that...it is just very average. Easy enough to drink with well hidden alcohol but a touch sweet for me.

2.54/5  rDev -9%
look: 2.5 | smell: 2.75 | taste: 2.25 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 2.5

Pours a muddy yellow with greenish highlights. Fizz fades into no head at all. Not great.

Aroma is a bit sour, with wet towels, metallic malt, and what seems like hop extract. Not offensive, but not tempting me to sip.

Taste is poor, with lots of metal, misplaced bitterness, and a muddy finish. Not looking forward to the rest of the glass.

Mouthfeel is fine, if heavyish. No finesse.

Overall, I would not recommend this beer; it is not well made, not enjoyable to drink, and, oddly enough, always more expensive than the far superior Flag beer found at those Moroccan establishments that serve booze.

Dull and flawed. Take a pass.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 3 | feel: 2.25 | overall: 2.75

Pours a honey straw color with a wispy white head that settles into a light ring.

The aroma is grainy, light sulfur and a slight honey note. Very macro-esc

The taste is corny sweet with plenty of grain flavor. Big cracker dry flavor. Some grassy bitterness.

The feel is light and crisp with plenty of carbonation. Quite dry on the palate, astringent.

Macro all the way. Quite dry and lifeless.

Serving type: on-tap
