From 05/11/12. Had this at some French restaurant in NYC on the Upper East Side on First Ave., I think around E 65th St. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a clear bright golden color with one to two inches of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of grains, bready malts, biscuit malts, wheat, some earthy notes. Not bad at all, but pretty average.

t - Tastes of bready malts, grains, floral notes, light sweet malts, biscuit, and wheat. Better then the nose, some nice hops and sweetness.

m - Light body and low to moderate carbonation. A little think but easy to drink.

o - Overall not that bad of a beer; I think I liked it a little bit better then most. Certainly not the most flavorful beer, but easy to drink and not bad or offensive at all. Overall an average beer probably not worth checking out, but I've had much worse.

Served in Morocco at Epcot.

A-pale gold with white head that disappears

S-honey and grains. medium strength

T-comes in with herbal grains and some honey then a bitterness with a bare adjunct after-taste with some peppercorn. not bad actually. much crisper and more full than any BMC beer.

M-medium creamy carbonation with a creamy finish

O-quite enjoyable! wasn't expecting to enjoy this but its refreshing and slightly complex. i could drink this a lot when i just want something easy going

look: 1.5 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2.5

Light yellow to straw colour & forms a white, bubbly head that is about a fingers width tall but disappears almost instantly.

Sweet aroma to it on the whole. There is a light corn aroma that is matched in equal strength by a sweet syrupy one & a little bit of vegetable.

A little grain followed by slightly more of a sweet syrupy taste matching that from the nose. These flavours are almost drowned out by corn & vegetable adjuncts that come next.

Smooth on the palate but slightly too thin in body, this beer is at least a little refreshing but the aftertaste is dry.

Yet another mass produced, low quality pale lager. Not a beer I'll be trying again. Slightly better than Flag Spéciale but not by much.

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass.

A - Pours a straw yellow with bubbly white head that fades rather quckily with no lacing.

S - Pretty straightforward smell of grain and not much malt or hops to speak of. Simple and not very interesting.

T - Starts with a grain lager but finishes with what feels like expired barley and hops that leaves a slightly acidic aftertaste that is not enjoyable. Backend on this is pretty terrible.

M - Light bodied, and plenty of carbonation. Aftertaste leaves an unpleasant mouthfeel.

O - In one word, no. Not an enjoyable beer, and would not want again.

I was able to taste a Casa Beer whilst walking through the Morrocan village of Epcot amusement park at disney. Casa Beer has a nice amber color with white foamy head. There are slight hops on the nose and in the taste. The smell and taste are predominately powered by grain, but it is very smooth and drinkable. Definitly worth a taste.

look: 3 | smell: 2.5 | taste: 1.5 | feel: 2 | overall: 2

Appearance - pale yellow with small fizzy head that dies quickly.

Smell - some toasted cereal grains and malt with a hint of hops

Taste - this is one truly awful beer it tastes of hard water, chlorine, lead, and cleaning products. The flavors of corn adjuncts are harsh and burnt tasting. The hops are somewhat acidic and bitter but lend no dynamic characteristics other than those basic flavors

Mouthfeel - light bodied and thin feeling

Overall - this is one of the worst beers I've ever had. If I ever say this in a friends fridge I would ask what he paid for it and then give him that amount and pour the beer down the drain. Avoid this.

Hazy golden appearance with thick head that sticks around for awhile. Smell is slightly sweet with hops, picked up some grain but overall the smell is light.

Taste is malty and grassy with a hint of bread, grain and wheat. A slight syrupy hint as well, overall the taste is fairly light and average. Light-medium bodied with high carbonation. Aftertaste is light, but has a lingering grassy/malty taste.

Not a great beer, but it is clean and refreshing. Can see this as a good summer beer, worth a try.

My first ever beer from Morocco. Pours a clear straw-yellow colour with thin white head. A little bit of lacing on the glass. Smells quite grainy and clean. Not too much in the way of flavour, but nothing off either, which is a step up from many adjunct lagers. Big carbonation level.

A - Crystal clear like a freshly Windexed window. Straw in color with no head whatsoever.

S - Hoppy and roasted malts. That's about it.

T - Malty, bitter.

M - Not as carbonated as I thought it wold be, kinda medium in carbonation. Light, no aftertaste.

Meh. Maybe if I was in Morocco.

A: This beer poured a dark golden color, with a very small head and no lacing

S and T: A light smell and taste, with a hint of fruity notes

M: This beer went down smooth, but was a bit waterly

D: This is a OK beer, but it is one that I won't buy.

2.78/5  rDev -1.4%
look: 4 | smell: 3.5 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Appearance -- Pours a hazy honey amber with two fingers of sudsy/fizzy white head.

Smell -- Fruity and floral with pilsner malt, and a bit of grassy hops. Not thrilling, but definitely better than average.

Taste -- Plum and bready malt, grassy hops, floral notes, suphur-like mineral notes. Finish is grassy hops and sulphur.

Mouthfeel -- Medium-light in body with moderate gentle carb. Finish is really tannic. Reminds me of those tea beers. Not good.

Drinkability -- If it weren't for a few defects (sulphur taste, tannic finish) this would be an above-average Euro lager, but as it stands it's a curiosity from the black continent. Regardless, a brewery making *anything* in the Middle East is a marvel in and of itself.

look: 3.5 | smell: 2 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 3 | overall: 3.5

Served in a Budweiser pokal.

African beer #4. It pours a clear pale straw topped by a rather short-lived half-finger or so of white foam. The nose comprises grass, light and dull florals, rice, and mossy tree bark. The taste is slightly better, leaning on light wheat, some minor floral bitterness, a light sprinkle of corn syrup, and a subtle metallic twinge. The body is quite light, with a light active carbonation and a crisp finish. As decidedly unimpressive as the smell and taste are, this thing does go down really easily (and, thankfully, pretty quickly, too). Call me Western-centric, but I have yet to have a solid brew from this continent. Oh well, the search continues, and hope lives on...

Had from the bottle in Florida in Disneyworld at Epcot while wandering around the World Showcase, Morocco section.. . Pours a light yellow mostly gold/copper .. . light caramel malts with touches of bitterness .. . lacing is an A for sure .. . a simple brew in the mouth, made to refresh.. no harsh off flavours .. . An absolute winner for a 90 degree day .. next, a Grand Marnier slushy served by this hot french chick..

look: 3 | smell: 3 | taste: 3 | feel: 3 | overall: 4

A - Clear golden and bubbly with an average sized light, foamy, rocky, white head. Decent retention that settles into a thin layer of foamy lace. Pretty typical of the style with maybe just a bit better head/lace.

S - Sweet, grainy aroma with a decent amount of grassy and floral aroma. Hints of corn aroma, but not overpowering or too strong. Like the appearance, it is pretty typical for the style, maybe just a touch above average, but not much if at all.

T - Sweet grainy, malty base. Just a faint whisper of corn/adjunct sweetness. Some floral and grassy hops come out. Not bad for the style, but a bit bland. Similar to the other two categories, about average, maybe slightly above.

M - Light body and fairly highly carbonated. Crisp and refreshing feel. Pretty typical of the style.

D - Pretty drinkable. Inoffensive taste with enough floral and grassy hop flavor to be interesting. Fairly sweet but not overly corn/adjunct flavored.

Notes: Best before Dec. 2010. Overall, about an average beer across the board. Pretty inoffensive and easy to drink beer with a decent amount of floral and grassy hops. It was a nice beer to drink, but pretty forgettable.

(Served in a strange)
A- This beer has a crystal clear golden yellow body with a big carbonation of tiny bubbles support a creamy off-white head that last and last.
S- This beer has a slight sweetness to the noble hops and pale malt with a fresh raw grain note as it warms up. The aroma is still very light.
T- This beer has a carbonic acid bite that fades into a Noble bitter bite with a sulfury finish. There is a pleasant pale malt note with a slight sweetness that is covered up by the carbonic acid flavor.
M- This beer has a medium mouthfeel with a foamy texture and a clean fizzy finish.
D- This beer has a nice flavor to the malt but it is covered by the carbonic acid except for the hop note. The slight sweetness to the sulfury finish has a nice Kolsch quality its just covered up.

330ml bottle poured into pint glass mar14 2010

A clear golden yellow with a small fast falling head that leaves no lace

S sweet grains and a little candied corn

T some mild hops with a little cereal and some lemon, not too much going on here

M fairly thin with average carbonation, nothing offensive but nothing special

D nothing offensive just a basic plain lager that quenches thirst but doesn't inspire

knock another country of my list, and I could swallow it without issues. I honestly expected less from North African beer so I was pleased with a straight across the board average beer.
