12oz bottle poured into a lager glass.

A: Dull golden straw color. No real head to speak of, it doesn't stick around. Tiny dots of lacing.

S: Dusty sort of grainy scent. Vague light fruits. Pithy, lemony hops. Hay and grass.

T: Earthy, dusty grain. Odd pervasive sweetness. Grape leaf and vague fruitiness. Grass and hay. Clean. Drying grainy finish.

M: Light bodied. Some malty firmness. Moderate carbonation.

O: I can see how this would be refreshing in its native climate, but then again I'd probably chug any beer you put in front of me while the hot African sun was beating down me. A pretty average "Euro" feeling lager in every respect.

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.
