jamestulloch (2693) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - DEC 7, 2015
Bottle. Clear golden body with no head or lacing. Steady carbonation. Aroma of honey, wort and wet grass. Flavour of sweet malt and sugary water. Thin body with a watery texture. Soft fizz. Overly sweet and not very good.

Holmen2 (2462) - NORWAY - DEC 1, 2015
Backlog from 11.04.12 in Cape Town. "At SAB Miller’s Newlands Brewery tap (’The Provincial Arms’), with a sample of their fermented maize liquid. Castle Lager on draught. Pale golden in colour, shiningly bright and persistent white head, which appearance is bordering to artificial. Highly carbonated. Some hop aroma. Taste of sugary water with a somewhat slimy mouthfeel. Slightly crude aftertaste with hints of bitterness. More tasty and bitter than the bottled version, although that doesn’t take much to achieve."

In a glass from a can at the hotel whilst in country for work. Nice middle of the road beer. Nothing exceptional but nothing scary either.

nybol (497) - DENMARK - OCT 25, 2015
God maltet smag af græs og ikke ret meget humle i den. Faktisk en bedre lager fra Afrika.

McWorta (1196) - LUXEMBOURG - OCT 19, 2015
Crisp clear golden and a fine poring white head. Notes of vegetable, floral and lightly fruity-hoppyness develop on the nose. Brief grainy sweetness and some bitterness follows offering a light body. Short finish, yet palatable.
