I sampled this on 3/24/04, and mistakenly listed my review under the French version of the same name. Thanks to the Bros. for deleting that review, at my request. I got suckered into buying this by the inviting palm trees on the label, and to see if Morrocan beer was worth drinking. It was much better than expected, but nothing remarkable.
Pours a wimpy, pale yellow color, with an impressive, three finger, white head that quickly drops to a collar with some scant patches.
Aroma is subdued, with some mild grain and a hint of hops.
Mouthfeel is lightbodied, with medium carbonation.
Taste isn't at all bad. Pale malt and mild, citrus hop bitterness are up front. Some fruity flavors are suggested, but are never able to fully emerge. Finish is crisp and dry, but a metallic aftertaste is a distraction.
I could definitely drink a few of these if I ever get stranded in Casablanca, for a few days. This one has a few faults, but is better than the American macros.

Ingredients: malt, hops, yeast, water

Golden body, thin white head, but lacing remains.
Aroma of random grains. I find it hard to believe that this is all malt, but ok.
An inkling of sweet maltiness, next to no hop flavor, very little bitterness.
Healthy amount of large bubbles.
Bland, a waste of the ingredients.

Sampled this beer from a bottle at the Restaurant Marakesh at Epcot in Disney World Orlando. Not a bad lager, though not particularly great.

This lager poured a clear, light golden color with white foam that settled completely. The smell was modest: a thin, sweetish smell (corn?) with an ever so slight touch of floral hops. The taste was not bad, but thin: sweetish malt with a bit of floral hops and some bitter hops, especially in the finish. The mouthfeel was crisp and fairly dry with medium-light body and low carbonation. There was a light lingering hoppy flavor. This was a decent, light, refreshing lager.

One of those plain, simple lagers that is likeable, but not lovable. Pours into the mug with ample carbonation, leaving a pristine white head atop a maple gold liquid. Strings of lace were left on the glass, which slowly crept down to meet with the beer. Fruity, citrus hop smell, with a bit of malt on the front of the nose. Hmm, nice taste. Somewhat complex. Sweet malt, citrus hop, bitter hop, lime, oranges, almonds, pecans and something uniquely else, something unique. Some sort of African grass? It was grainy/grassy, and bitter. Whatever it was, I like it. Crisp, biting mouthfeel that leaves the tongue and cheeks refreshed. One of the best pale lagers I've had. Highly drinkable. If I can find this back home, it'll be a staple in my fridge.

Pours a pale gold with a creamy snow-white head. Lacing evident. Smells of pale malt and lightly bitter. Slightly metallic aromas.

Taste is creamy and grassy. Lightly fruity of all things. Hey, someone hopped this euro-style lager! Nicely hopped for the style but not crisp like a pilsner. An odd combonation that makes for a nice flavor. Mouth is creamy vs. crisp with a bitter hoppy aftertaste. Very smooth and tasty. I, like others, had this at the Moroccan area at EPCOT and was pleasantly surprised. Tasty and easy to drink.

A surprisingly good lager from an unexpected source. This brew pours slightly hazed golden yellow with an enormous head of white foam. The head is decently retentive and laces quite well down the glass.

Aromas of Saaz hops and malt. This follows in the flavor with a decently hoppy bitterness following the malt. Good feel from the highly ample carbonation. The is a reasonably dry finish. Highly drinakble for a pale lager.

The beer poured light straw golden. The head was white and stood tall finally slipping back to the surface of the beer and staying around to lace the glass.

The aroma is light, crisp, and slightly malty. Upon first opening a bright Saazlike hop aroma was present, but that quickly flashed off.

The flavor has a fruitiness that is out of character for a lager. The beer is crisp, but not clean in flavor.

The finish goes fruity dry and leaves you wanting another swallow so the resultant drinkability is good. The body is light.

Not a bad beer, the fruitiness is not what was expected in a lager.

12 ounce bottle. The bottle is a very light brown color with a pretty nifty label.

I thought this must be a little different, since it was from half a world away, but I guess not. Regular macro-yellow in color, with a fluffy head. Tastes like any US macro (nothing offensive, but nothing with any big hops, malt, or other flavor), only they slapped a different label on it. (The label may be the best part).

Sampled at the Moroccan Pavillion at Epcot, it poured with an average white colored head that settled over deep golden/amber liquid. Some lightly toasty and sweet malt with light hops in the nose. The taste is medium-dry maltiness balanced by some out of place ale-like fruitiness and a pleasant hoppy flavor. Finishes slightly sharp and bitter, very interesting flavors in this beer.

A rather odd, liquor-like flavor here, a distinctive tequila whang, sort of like Tequiza, without the lime and less corn. Beneath the liquor flavors was a huskyness that bordered on harsh, but held back just a bit. Sampled at Epcot as I tried to drink my way around the world, glad this was not the end of the Earth, as it would be a sorry beer to end the day with.

As good a a beer from Morocco could be, and better than most internationl lagers. Strange flavours of rubber and sand (bit salty aswell). Sweet malts to start. Crisp finish, stale hops, not a very good beer in the end, bland and plain crappy, but as i said before, not as bad as some.

For once, a Lager that I really enjoyed drinking and rating because of the flavor. When poured into my glass, it had a medium sized white and creamy head with fine-medium sized bubbles. The body had a lot of lively carbonation and it was cloudy. The hue of this beer was yellow-gold and it left a good lacing on the sides of my glass. The nose was lightly malty, hoppy and fruity. The flavor was hops and it was also smooth. The mouthfeel was tingly on my tongue and somewhat thin. The more I drank of this beer, the more I liked it.

Orange hued golden color. White to off-white head.
Aroma of malts and hops.

Crisp and refreshing. Balanced. Fairly clean. Finishes good.

Light to medium body. Good mouthfeel.
Good drinkability.

I found this in the Morocco section at Epcot. I wasn't expecting much, but was pleasantly surprised. A solid, refreshing lager.
