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.

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.

A: Pours clear golden with very many small bubbles. The tan head is tall but rather uneven and airy. Decent lacings, though.

S: Adjunct malts, like freshly opened canned corn. Sweet. Bitter hops and bready malts.

T: Mint and vegetables (canned) but also a nice and balanced maltyness. Bitter hops and quite some grass and herbs.

M: Sweet kind of short aftertaste. Body is medium, but a bit almost oily. Carbonation rich and offensive.

O: This could probably work in Morocco after a warm day in Marrakech, but in here in Sweden - not so interesting...

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuit and bready malt with grassy hops and a slightly stale vegetable component. Flavor is sweet, mild biscuit and a hint of toasted malt, finishing with faint malt and slight hops. There is no evidence of the odd stale part of the the aroma. Medium, surprisingly slightly creamy body. A pleasant slightly sweet malty lager and with more character than most macros and Euro pales. I wouldn't hesitate getting another bottle of this in Morocco or a restaurant.
