This echoes my review of Simba ... excellent beer, even better than Simba, and likely the only time I'll have a Vienna style ale. Lovely, strange size of bottle (68 cl, I think), and terrific ABV. Unfortunately, as in real life, the elephant (Tembo) is more endangered than the lion (Simba), so if you get one of these, enjoy.

Overall, darker than Simba, heavier on the palate particularly after the usual maize lager. Colour is rare, a medium brown, slightly less so than similar ales, and with a slight cloudy aspect.
