Appearance - Pours a straw gold with a finger of bubbly head that quickly recedes.
Smell - sweet malts, corn adjuncts, grains, apple.
Taste - Pretty much similar to the aromas. A very standard American adjunct.
Mouthfeel - Light to medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation. Finishes dry and and sweet malts linger.
Overall - A simple easy drinking American adjunct. Nothing really stands out here from other American adjuncts. This brew would be good after doing some yardwork.

Bottle purchased at Beers of the World in Henrietta, NY. First beer drank from Africa!
Pours an effervescent, fizzy, golden yellow, classic adjunct lager look. A big 2.5 inch fizzy head forms.
Doesn't smell like a whole lot, smells like sweet grain, with a bit of corniness, and the slightest bit of grassiness.
Nice little bite up front, a kiss of hops, but the bite mostly comes from the carbonation. Finishes a bit sweet and corny. For an adjunct lager, this isn't half bad, honestly. I'd get it again.
Light bodied, slightly thicker body than typical for the style. High carbonation, very refreshing and drinkable.
I'm surprised at how tasty this was.

A: Straw gold filtered with a moderate to low number of large bubbled carbonation, a finger of white head.
S: Canned peas, offal, malt, yeast, like a good old lager beer from the west but done in Africa, with a cool elephant on the label to boot.
T: Malt, yeast, offal, canned peas, but balanced, smooth, well done for this style.
M: Light body, medium carbonation. Dry finish.
O: Great for an African beer. Again, cool bottle and label, and unique coming from Africa. This was my first beer ever at the University of Guelph years ago. Nice to have found it again today in Port Perry, ON.
