12oz bottle poured into a pint at Epcot

A- pours a pale yellow color with a small fizzy white head that reduces to a ring around the edge

S- smells of barley, light grass, a bit fruity, clean overall

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...

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.

Aroma is fruity (pineapple/citrus) and sweet. Dark golden color with no head. Mouthfeel leans to the watery side. Taste is slightly metallic and very light. No aftertaste.
