Had from bottle in Tanzania during an African safari.

L: Pours a clear golden color with generous white head that fades quickly.

S: Mild malts with faint hops. Some skunk.

T/F: Pretty generic macro lager. Crisp and predominantly malts/grains. Trace hops at the finish. Effervescent and fairly refreshing.

O: Indistinguishable from 'Tusker' and it was usually a choice between the 2 while on safari. Pleasant enough and a nice change of pace from water. Cheap and readily available while on safari. Wouldn't seek it out at home. Gets a few extra points for some great vacation memories.

Really pale, almost no head.
Strange nose, almost toffee like.
Something grassy, slight hoppy finish. Not sweet. But a bit watery and thin. Overall not a terrible lager, I would drink it while there.

Drank after a day on the Serengeti in Tanzania - so my ratings likely reflect the magic of the bush!

Nice light grassy smell. Lager yellow color. Small head retention but plenty of head at the beginning and some creative lacing. Tastes more or less like any old lager - bit of a grassy taste with a slight amount of bitterness at the back end. Crisp and refreshing overall - especially if drank in the right time and place.

330ml bottle 4,8% Abv.
Served chilled in a snifter

Again thanks to my friend Jon for the bottle.

Appearance: Pretty standard pour - light golden body with a good sized white head (reasonable retention and fair lace).

Smell: As I cracked the cap I got a whiff of grassy hops - could this be a good African lager???
Once poured the hops seem to fall away behind grainy pale malt and a metallic element.

Taste: Not the strongest flavour around, but pleasant. Pale grain dominates with some earthy, grassy hops in the finish. Pleasant bitterness for an African lager.

Mouthfeel: Light, but not watery with a good level of carbonation.

Overall: Best East African lager to date. I could drink this on a hot day.

Thanks to BlackHaddock for this beer.

330ml bottle poured into a pokal.

A = Straw colored liquid with slight amount of very small suspended particulates with brilliant white one finger head that recedes slowly leaving light lacing on glass and small layer of bubbles on surface.

S = Very nice grassy smells, light caramel or butterscotch, too, but mostly just a nice clean smell of fresh grains and a grassy sencha green tea.

T = Clean on the palate with some nice sweet caramel blending with an earthy and floral hops tastes of noble hops.

M = Light bodied, decent mouthcoating, smooth almost creamy feel with light effervescent carbonation.

D = This is a very easy drinking beer and having several on a hot day would be perfectly enjoyable. A great lawnmower beer.

Brown 33cl bottle with a fetching black label with a leopard skin coloured border, a picture of a leopard is the centre piece. The shoulder of the bottle has an embossed leopards head within the glass.

The beer poured a lovely clear golden yellow, mid-range in tone, meaning not overly pale, or overly dark. The head was snow white and stayed through the drink.

The taste was fairly malty, as was the aroma. This is a well crafted lager, I don't know who has installed the brewery and trained the staff, but they have done a good job. You would never guess this came from Tanzania.

I liked it, good body for a lager. There was a slightly dry aftertaste, but not the metalic twang some lagers have.
