Bought in WFM craft variety pack. Average beer, but my first from Africa.

A: Darker and flatter than high quality pilsner like Polestar. Head disappears. Not much carbonation, no lace.

S: Flat smell. A bit skunky, then grass, malt, grain. Not much
T: Follows the smell, a bit watery, not offensive, but not much better than unsweetened, flattish, ginger ale.
MF. Watery.

I wanted to like this. Will try again but too watery and non-descript. Stella is better.

Bottle from Andover Liquors
Pour a crystal clear golden straw color with a decent sized tightly bubbled white head that dissipates quickly to a faint cap on top. Aromas of sweet grainy honey like pilsner malt and a faint floral hop. I'm a bit surprised that the aroma is so damn inviting. The flavor is lightly sweet and honey like with some faint earthy spicy hop to balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and slick sugary water mouthfeel. Very nice example of a pale lager, I could see some of these on a warm summer day.
