Bright golden color with a thin head with short retention.
Light sweet malt and lime aroma with hints of herbal hops.
Similarly, refreshing taste of herbal hops and sweet malt. Hints of oxidation and cardboard finish. Dry aftertaste with a mild bitterness.
Light body with appropriate carbonation.
It has a nice African history tradition, nevertheless is not even a superior Adjunct Lager. I would pass.

Clear, golden yellow body with a large bubble, foamy white head; sticky clumps of foam on the glass. Cereal and honey nose. Light grain flavors with an underlying mild sweetness; decent hop bitterness at the finish. Light bodied; crisp, clean finish.

Aroma isn't very strong but appealing. Too bad the flavor is rather diffused and weak. Okay overall. Makes for a decent thirst quencher but won't do much for you if you're seeking memorable taste.
