Bottle shared at a tasting at Dancing Camel. Almost clear golden. Cereals aroma with corn. Sweetish grainy flavor with a bit of corn and a dry finish with light bitterness and sourish hints. Light to medium-bodied. Quite drinkable.

Pinball (11940) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JAN 8, 2012
Several bottles, 33cl, back in the 90s. I was in asmara 3 weeks on a IT infrastructure job, and even back then I found pleasure in beer, and new exotic beer. The brew was somewhat similar to faxe fad, a little less bitter than HOF, and a little bit smoother. Also very slightly sweeter, but it is more or less just like any other macro lager. At the time i found it pretty good, as it was definetly drinkable. I ususally only rate from notes, but this is an exception - i’m not going back to asmara, eritrea anytime soon, although it is a nice town, located on a plateau on the mountain with very nice climate due to the high location.

sebletitje (9348) - Enghien, BELGIUM - JUN 14, 2013
33 cl bottle courtesy of and shared with Nisse666. BB 25-06-2013. Dorée claire, col fin blanc. Bouquet et profile de grains en dominance. Rien d’étonnant avec ce type de bières africaines. Malt pils avec une rondeur de maïs, sec et grains presque poussiéreux, monotone mais ce côté malté et grains reste agréable. Houblon est absent.

Thank you! 330 ml. bottle sampled @ Borefts 2015. Day 1. Clear golden, little white head. Nose is bitter flowers & candy. Taste is hugely sweet corn, candy bread, sugar, sweet flowers. Oily body. No unpleasant beers, good for a pale lager. Shockingly good for an African pale lager. Neat.
