Yellow colour, decent head, small bubbles rising up. Smell of sweet corn. Doesn't taste of much and what's there isn't great; sweet corn, something mirky. A little thin, under-carbonated.

Just not a good beer, avoid this one

Can shared by travlr. Served in a SAVOR snifter.

Pours a very light straw color with a thin white head that disappears as quickly as it rose. The nose brings forward a good amount of grain as well as some creamed corn. Pretty gross. The flavor takes it down to a new level with cooked vegetables dominating a base of dirty metal. Body is light and offensive. Very off-putting and two ounces was way more than enough.

From 03/27/11 notes. Another beer shared by Travir (RB) from his recent trip to Africa.

a - Pours a clear starw, yellow color with one inch of white head and moderate carbonation evident.

s - Smells of grain, bready malts, and light sourness. Not good at all; really unenjoyable. Smells like a skunked BMC product.

t - Woah, didn't think this could taste worse than it smelled, but I was wrong. Tastes of grain, bready malts, metal notes, and sour notes. Some light vegetable oil taste to it as well, which mixes horribly with the metal and sourness. One of the worst tasting beers I've ever had.

m - Light body and moderate to high carbonation.

o - The worst of the three Africa beers on Sunday, as well as the worst beer at the tasting overall, and one of the worst beers I've ever had in my life. It's like a skunked BMC adjunct lager that metal and vegetables were added to. Do not buy this beer.
