look: 3.5 | smell: 3.25 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 4 | overall: 3.5

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.

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

500ml bottle served in a pilsen glass.

A: Pours an absolutely clear pale yellow color forming a medium fluffy and bubbled white head. Medium retention and lots of lacings left in the glass

S: Strong sweet malts in the nose. Very bready and biscuity. Notes of adjunct malts, mainly rice. Light notes of flowery hops

T: Follows the nose. Strong notes of sweet malts. Quite biscuity and crispy. Again, some notes of adjunct malts. Light hops bitterness in the end

M: Very light body and medium carbonation. Crispy malty aftertaste

O: Drinkable and not that bad for an Adjunct Lager

Pours a clear, golden color, topped with a very generous white head and nice retention.
The aroma is pretty easy to pick up - some malts and lots of grassy aroma. Not completely pleasant.
The taste is slightly sweet and grassy. There is some bitterness in the finish, although it leaves a slightly weird aftertaste.
Still drinkable enough to enjoy it.
