though regarded to as the Best Nigerian Beer. i don't find it cool enough. i think it's somehow watery. i can drink 4-5 bottles without getting tipsy. while i drink upto 3 canned Heineken and get drunk.

though it is a respected and favourite beer among the indigenes and frequent visitors to Nigeria.

well....average

Nigeria's best beer yet, it passed a long way and changed a lot. now it has this malty light sweet taste very refreshing and it is sure to order in case you want to try a local Nigerian beer.

1940s to 1950s - STAR was introduced into the Nigerian market.

It became the first indigenously brewed beer in a market that was dominated exclusively by imported brands.

had this in a Nigerian Restaurant in London accompaying Nigerian food, which in itself is somewhat of an experience ('pepper soup' which stands to it's name, goat stomach, sheep knuckles and other stuff which I dared not to ask what it was ...) ... to be honest, the lager was the one only familiar taste I could cling to ... in itself this brew is quite malty and not too mellow ... rough like a real African brew ....

Light yellow colour, with a small, sudsy head. Amazingly, this leaves alot of lace on the glass. At the finish, the whole inside was covered with necklaces of foam. The smell is very weak. A bit grassy, dry and semisweet smell. Tastes plain. Light sweetness, almost cracker like, with a dry, bittering finish. Thin, watery mouthfeel. Drinkable, like most standard macro's are drinkable. Enjoyable, but dull. Definitely wouldn't turn one down, or buy if the price is right.

A pale urine colour, slightly grassy aroma, with a smooth slightly clinging medium malt body and a softly dry bitter finish. Green bottle with a simple blue label. There is a white star on the label stating premium quality. All Nigerian beers, by law, have to contain sorghum, which should mark this out as different to the normal global lager, but it's a quite normal brew.
