Koelschtrinker (10663) - Köln (Cologne), GERMANY - JUN 21, 2011
Mein 2. Bier aus Kamerun verdanke ich Doppelbock, der mir die 0,65l Flasche mitgebracht hat. Der Schaum ist bei diesem Bier direkt verschwunden. Hat das Castel Beer der selben Brauerei noch sehr gut abgeschnitten, kann man bei diesem Bier nicht gerade von gut sprechen. Herb und penetrant säuerlich liegt das Bier im Mund, bevor der leicht metallerne und wässrige Abgang folgt. Beim nächsten Afrikabesuch rate ich dazu, dieses Bier zu meiden! Test vom 3.5.2006, Gebinde: Glasflasche Noten: 6,4,7,4,5,5 - 5,10

Bov (9492) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - JUN 15, 2011
found in an african shop in my hometown - golden beer with a chaotic foam; notes of paperboard with light aromatic hops; medium-bodied, subtle carbonation and a light harsh bitterness; corny and malty finish - decent

Smooth and very watery. There is little taste. Unrecognizable or lack of noteworthy flavor.

douglas88 (6019) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 15, 2010
650 ml bottle at Delirium. Pours a clear golden hue with a large white head. A sweet malty nose, some apples. The flavor is your basic Pale Lager; smooth clean watery flavors, sweet. Nothing offensive.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 30, 2009
A Mes rate: bottle at The Cadster’s Spotify tasting.
Clean gold. Rather dull and cardboardy but certainly not as bad as some I have had. Bready malt dominated with a faint bitterness in the finish. Not offensive really, just very dull.

harrisoni (13711) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2009
Bottle at the Spotify tasting. Poor lager cardboard aroma. It’s a bit better in mouth, bit of toffee.

heavy (2133) - Split, CROATIA - NOV 27, 2008
30/10 0.65 l courtesy of Doggythedog, huge thanks for new African beercountry for me and only my second African beer! It poured golden body with medium-sized head that lived quite short. Lemon hops and bread in its aroma. Flavor is slightly sourish hop, with some weaker malts in the background rounding it nicely. Also hints of some undefined spices here. Pity it had so thin body. Therefore, it had shorter, but pleasant finish. Good for something African. Again, this evening, a beer got better than my expectations was.

ogivlado (5716) - Zagreb, CROATIA - NOV 18, 2008
bottled(650ml). -courtesy of Doggythedog (thanks!), shared with him and heavy.
Golden coloured, small white head that went away fast, bready nose. The taste is also bready, weak malty and light hoppy with notes of hay in the finish. New country counts.

Marko (3932) - Split / Zagreb, CROATIA - OCT 30, 2008
0.65l bottle from a friend who brought it from Cameroon (thanks Aleks!), shared with heavy and ogivlado
Poured a nice golden body with a medium sized thick white head. A light, maybe a little too light taste, but fine, bready, some lightly acidic hop. a little pollen. Yeah, quite clean, no off tastes, drinkable, would be a very good lager with more body... now it’s just average (which is, again, probably great for the area). All in all, I couldn’t have asked more from my first Cameroonian beer.

Nuffield (3671) - Roseville, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2004
Dusty aroma from a yellow fizzy lager...but the flavor here is more delicate than that--some fruitiness even--amid a light grassiness. Not a bad lager at all. My can was brewed under license in Gabon. I was told by a friend that people in Gabon do not drink the native Gabonese beers, preferring instead the higher quality offered by Beaufort. Um, o.k.
