2.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
650ml bottle [not only taking the effort of carrying this one all the way from Ouagadougou to BI, altogether another bountiful donation made by Aziz - thank you very much!]. Clear, chestnut colour with average, thick, frothy, fairly lasting, moderately lacing, off-white to beige head. Grainy, strawy, muggy aroma, hints of wet straw and rabbit droppings, a very backgroundish nuttily touch. Taste is nuttily malty, slightly strawy, some caramel malty sweetness, a touch of malt lozenge, some malt spiciness. Very "natural" aroma, OK taste.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
66cl bottle. Light brown colour with a nice beige head. The nose is slightly alcohol together with smooth malt. The beer starts smooth, light and nice. Brown - like the colour, hints of hazelnuts, nice roasted malts, not too sweet. Very fresh and easy to drink. The aftertaste is smooth, malty, fresh. It tastes a bit like the 6.2%, but still light and smooth.
Nice brew from Africa! 10/12/10/10

Thanks to travlr for bringing this home all the way from a land far far away. This beer pours ruqby copper with a tiny beige head. Aroma is weak soapy, caramel malts, weak spice, dry lagerish, tobacco, dry ropes and some corn. Taste is hops, caramel malts, spice, grains, nuts, weak metallic and some weak soap.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Rate country tick from travlr. Pours nice amber with an OK off white head. Aroma is spicy and hoppy. Smells like those coffee bags made from fabric, some tobacco, almost nicotine smell, some malt presence, a bit of stale hoppiness. The taste is basic malts and some sourish stale hoppiness, some weird tobacco/nicotine component like the aroma. Not exactly bad, but as you can tell, nothing you should sell your red cross food portion to get your hands on.

Bottle courtesy of me, at the Danish Sour and Bitter Warm-Up, thank me very much! Clear amber color, large fluffy white head with acceptable retention and spider web lacing. Aroma of dilute caramel. Taste is toasted caramel, subtle detergent. Definitely not another terrible African beer - it can’t hold a candle to Laurentina Preta or Hakim Stout, but it is actually drinkable.
