일반적인 라거의 느낌과 맛이지만, 홉의 향이 약하고 쌉쌀함이 아닌 달달한 맛으로 다가왔던 맥주. 맛은 있지만 음식과 함께 먹기보단 홀로 먹기를 추천. 일반 페일라거와 다른 느낌을 느껴보시기를!

The flavor profile is a bit all over the place. too watery for the style, It also taste sort of stale & there is NO DATE on the bottle so it might just be. Oh well, at least I can now say that I have had a beer from Morocco. Cheers! C

Review: 0.33l Bottle of Casablanca Premium beer: ABV: 5.0%

Coming in a rather nice brown bottle with a lovely logo of Casablanca and a palm tree, with the description "Original lager from Morocco".

On pour it looks ok, it has a nice golden colour with a white head that is decent sized and frothy. Some carbonation is going on. Overall it is a nice looking beer.

For the aroma I get some malts and an overall lagery smell. Faint but ok.

Had it nice and cold straight from the fridge, and yeah initially it was relatively nice and refreshing to drink. Slightly malty and hoppy.

But overall, it was light, nothing too heavy here, and not much character either. Very light bodied and drinkable, get a slight taste of the malts and grains but very little else. A little watery too. Not a great beer, bland, and largely forgettable.

look: 2.75 | smell: 3 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.75 | overall: 2.5

Look: Straw yellow with very little head. Urine-like.

Smell: Like any American adjunct lager, a thin malt and hops scent.

Taste: Oh that’s weird. It has hints of adjunct beer below a sort of spiciness and metallic bitterness. It’s hard to describe but not incredibly pleasant.

Mouthfeel: Drink it cold. Like carbonated water

Overall: Drink if you’re desperate because you’re at a bar in Morocco without any imports.

Poured from a bottle at the Tangerine Cafe (Morocco) - Epcot in Disney World
Golden pour with an exceptionally creamy white head. Aromas of pale grain, earthy & grassy hops, and yeast. Modest bitterness with balanced sweetness with notes of lightly toasted grain and earthy European hops. Creamy & smooth light-to-medium body, ample carbonation, finishing with a clean earthy & grassy hop finish. Overall, nice easy drinking refreshing beer. Fun to try in this atmosphere for sure!

From Saveur Biere. In Teku glass. Preparing dinner. I drank it after a futsal match, so it may influence, but crushed it in a second and liked it.Found it more malty than usual in a industrial

Pours a straw yellow with a quickly disappearing head. Not much of a smell. Taste is of sweet malts. Mouthfeel is crisp and refreshing. Beer has a creamness to it. Overall the only real choice, while in Morocco.

T- clean and malty up front with a hint of malty sweetness, light grass mid-palate, clean, slightly sweet malty finish

M- light body with medium carbonation leads to a foamy mouthfeel and finish

O- clean and simple, paired well with Mediterranean food

Light gold color and crystal clear. Huge big-bubbled head that settles very, very quickly--almost like soda pop.

Raw, unmalted barley smell. Woody.

The flavor improves slightly with some creaminess and, oddly, a strong wheat taste. Thin body and highly carbonated. Very much in the thin European lager style.

Bottle poured into plastic cup at Epcot; golden color with modest head; malts to nose not much more detected. Malty (bread) taste in palate- some sweetness. Malts linger on palate in a light way. Not the best I've had and on a hot day this might be a throw down beer; I've had worse!

Had in Epcot. Pours clear, gold in color, with one inch head. Taste is wheat, grass, and adjunct. Light and sweet. Not the most complex beer, but tastes wonderful in the heat.

Great head level, about right.

Very malty aroma, with hidden fruit elements.

Taste: Much better than French beers! All of them...

Marguez sausages are also much better than French ones.

Great level of hops! Perfect, and tasted natural and organic.

As a cold beer, on a hot day, this is up there with the best...

Thank you to Morocco :) I shall buy much more...

look: 2.75 | smell: 2.25 | taste: 2.5 | feel: 2.5 | overall: 2.5

Poured from a bottle into a pint glass in Morocco

L: Pours a light clear golden color. One finger of white head... no significant lacing.

S: Mild malts... bread. Minimal hops.

T/F: Fairly typical macro lager. Pale malts... mild sweetness up front. Faint hops but no single flavor really dominates or stands out. Carbonated with medium mouthfeel. Finish is crisp and clean.

O: It's the 'best' beer from Morocco... which is the very definition of 'damning with faint praise'. Still... it's the best beer in town (in a country where the religion unfortunately dictates that one not drink beer) so if you're in Morocco.... bottoms up! I've definitely had worse.

Bottled 2/23/15. Best by 2/23/16.

Pours a clear honey gold with a foamy beige head that settles to wisps of film on top of the beer. Small dots of lace drip into the remaining beer on the drink down. Smell is of grain, earth, grass, and slight fruit aromas. Taste is much the same with sweet grain, corn flake, and grass flavors on the finish. There is a very mild amount of earth bitterness on the palate with each sip. This beer has a lower level of carbonation with a slightly crisp mouthfeel. Overall, this is a below average beer that is fairly decent, but there is a pretty sweet corn flake flavor that dominates the taste.

Serving type: bottle.

Wow, 1st time I saw this beer in the states. I haven't had it since my trip to Morocco in 2004. Poured from a brown 11.2 oz. bottle. Has a golden color with a 1/2 inch head. Smell is light, some malts, a bit of sweetness. Taste is somewhat unusual, metallic, some grains, a slightly medicinal aftertaste. Feels light in the mouth and overall is mediocre at best.

Nice appearance with good lacing. Good aroma of sweet malts with honey notes. Taste is light with notes of diacetyl lemon and honey. Very refreshing and good quality lager. Not terribly remarkable but appears to be made without adjuncts and has a crisp and decent lager flavour. Nice sweetness. Noy so much bitterness or lingering falvours. A decent offering and better than typical mass produced lagers. Great bottle with palm trees and 1940s movie style lettering!

My mark out of one hundred would be 73.

I have drank this beer in both the United States (multiple locations) and in Morocco in a variety locations. It seemed weird drinking it inside Morocco, since it is an Islamic nation, but the wiedness fades because Morocco is modern country and most people drink. It pours hazy golden, little carbonation, and a slim head. It has a hints of vegetables, wheat, hops, and sweetness that congregate in the malty taste. It has a light edge, little aftertaste, and finishes neutral.

You can get this beer in many locations in the United States (Illinois, Missouri, and Texas) and everywhere in Morocco.

Pale golden colored lager with a bit of haziness. A quarter inch thick head is on top. I see plenty of carbonation bubbles inside. Aroma is slightly metallic and not much else. Mouth is a bit salty and thin. Taste is faintly that of bittering hops,and pale malt with a quick and slightly metallic finish.

A: The beer is slightly hazy yellow in color and has a light amount of visible carbonation along with some particulates near the bottom of the glass. It poured with a short white head that quickly dissipated, leaving only a patch of bubbles on the surface.
S: Light aromas of apples are present in the nose.
T: Similar to the smell, the taste has flavors and bits of sweetness. Hints of grainy malts are also noticeable.
M: It feels a bit more than light-bodied on the palate and has a moderate amount of carbonation.
O: There's nothing really special about the smell or taste of this beer, but it is rather easy to drink.

A: Pours a clear medium yellow in color with moderate amounts of active visible carbonation streaming from the bottom of the glass and some faint golden yellow highlights. The beer has a quarter finger tall fizzy white head that quickly reduces to a small patch of thick film surrounded by a thin film covering the remainder of the surface and a thin ring at the edges of the glass. Light amounts of lacing are observed.

S: Moderate aromas of grainy malts with lighter hints of rice adjuncts and some light floral/grassy hops.

T: Upfront there are light to moderate flavors of grainy malts with some light amounts of rice adjuncts and a moderate amount of light fruit (apple juice) sweetness. There is a hint of grassy and floral hops that impart a very light amount of bitterness which fades quickly.

M: On the lighter side of medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly thin/watery.

O: This beer is not anything special about this beer but it is not offensive or anything like is just very average. Easy enough to drink with well hidden alcohol but a touch sweet for me.

Pours a muddy yellow with greenish highlights. Fizz fades into no head at all. Not great.

Aroma is a bit sour, with wet towels, metallic malt, and what seems like hop extract. Not offensive, but not tempting me to sip.

Taste is poor, with lots of metal, misplaced bitterness, and a muddy finish. Not looking forward to the rest of the glass.

Mouthfeel is fine, if heavyish. No finesse.

Overall, I would not recommend this beer; it is not well made, not enjoyable to drink, and, oddly enough, always more expensive than the far superior Flag beer found at those Moroccan establishments that serve booze.

Dull and flawed. Take a pass.

Pours a honey straw color with a wispy white head that settles into a light ring.

The aroma is grainy, light sulfur and a slight honey note. Very macro-esc

The taste is corny sweet with plenty of grain flavor. Big cracker dry flavor. Some grassy bitterness.

The feel is light and crisp with plenty of carbonation. Quite dry on the palate, astringent.

Macro all the way. Quite dry and lifeless.

A: Pours clear golden with very many small bubbles. The tan head is tall but rather uneven and airy. Decent lacings, though.

S: Adjunct malts, like freshly opened canned corn. Sweet. Bitter hops and bready malts.

T: Mint and vegetables (canned) but also a nice and balanced maltyness. Bitter hops and quite some grass and herbs.

M: Sweet kind of short aftertaste. Body is medium, but a bit almost oily. Carbonation rich and offensive.

O: This could probably work in Morocco after a warm day in Marrakech, but in here in Sweden - not so interesting...
