Here's to you kid! Could not resist a new country,despite being a pale lager. A little bit of initial soapy foam. Detergent smell in there. Some initial passable taste, but then an astringency that makes it undrinkable. Really funky, drink this only when trapped on all fours in the desert.
Had again 3.5 years later, fresh from Morocco and decent mouthfeel.

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.

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.

This beer pours a crystal clear light golden hue, with a couple fingers of soapy white head, which leaves very scarce lace as it recedes. It smells of musty white grain, and some sharp weediness. The taste is sweet white grain, and sharp, metallic, vegetal hops. The carbonation is moderate, the body on the light side of medium, and a bit cloying, and the finish is dry, with some additional mustiness.

Pretty average for the style, but points for lack of skunkiness.

Can served into a generic goblet in Ibiza, Spain, in April 2011. Reviewed from notes.

A: Pours a three finger head of fair thickness and retention. Colour is a clear copper.

Sm: Fresh barley aroma. Light in strength. Clean and simple. Not a lot going on here.

T: A bit of cream comes through with a crap malt finish and a boring barley body. Poorly built all around, but the cream is nice I guess. Balanced garbage. How hard is it to balance so little, though?

Mf: Light and smooth. Undercarbonated but I wouldn't call it flat.

Dr: Not worth a try, but fairly priced. There are worse beers on Ibiza.

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 that...it is just very average. Easy enough to drink with well hidden alcohol but a touch sweet for me.

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.

Appearance: Pours out a clear, yellow body with a sudsy, white head. Yep, it's a lager, alright!

Smell: Sweetish, grainy nose with some modest floral accents here and there. Basic but acceptable.

Taste: Sweet, grainy extra pale maltiness. Light floral hop character with just a kiss of bitterness. Drying, fairly crisp finish.

Mouthfeel: Light-bodied. Medium-plus carbonation.

Drinkability: Quite average from top to bottom. Casablanca: a fantastic movie, but a not so great beer.

From 05/11/12. Had this at some French restaurant in NYC on the Upper East Side on First Ave., I think around E 65th St. Poured from a 12 oz. bottle into a pint glass.

a - Pours a clear bright golden color with one to two inches of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of grains, bready malts, biscuit malts, wheat, some earthy notes. Not bad at all, but pretty average.

t - Tastes of bready malts, grains, floral notes, light sweet malts, biscuit, and wheat. Better then the nose, some nice hops and sweetness.

m - Light body and low to moderate carbonation. A little think but easy to drink.

o - Overall not that bad of a beer; I think I liked it a little bit better then most. Certainly not the most flavorful beer, but easy to drink and not bad or offensive at all. Overall an average beer probably not worth checking out, but I've had much worse.

I was able to taste a Casa Beer whilst walking through the Morrocan village of Epcot amusement park at disney. Casa Beer has a nice amber color with white foamy head. There are slight hops on the nose and in the taste. The smell and taste are predominately powered by grain, but it is very smooth and drinkable. Definitly worth a taste.

Served in a Budweiser pokal.

African beer #4. It pours a clear pale straw topped by a rather short-lived half-finger or so of white foam. The nose comprises grass, light and dull florals, rice, and mossy tree bark. The taste is slightly better, leaning on light wheat, some minor floral bitterness, a light sprinkle of corn syrup, and a subtle metallic twinge. The body is quite light, with a light active carbonation and a crisp finish. As decidedly unimpressive as the smell and taste are, this thing does go down really easily (and, thankfully, pretty quickly, too). Call me Western-centric, but I have yet to have a solid brew from this continent. Oh well, the search continues, and hope lives on...

Pours a slightly hazed straw gold with a white head that leaves a pretty fair amount of lacing on the way down. Nose is barely there with a dried lemon tone and a bit of grain attribute as well. Flavor is slightly bitter citric. A touch of metallic edge to it. Feel is standard with carbonation. Drinkable, I guess. Nothing to really write home about. If I were in Morocco, I am sure my choices would be limited, so it would have to do. But for here in the U.S., no great shakes (but a little bit better than I had expected).

Poured into a Seattle Beer Week pint glass. Pours a slightly hazy golden amber with a half finger white head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of sweet biscuit and bready malt with grassy hops and a slightly stale vegetable component. Flavor is sweet, mild biscuit and a hint of toasted malt, finishing with faint malt and slight hops. There is no evidence of the odd stale part of the the aroma. Medium, surprisingly slightly creamy body. A pleasant slightly sweet malty lager and with more character than most macros and Euro pales. I wouldn't hesitate getting another bottle of this in Morocco or a restaurant.
