Some shaman did put a spell on this African brew ... well it actually made the beer a lot more enjoyable than their carribean counterparts.
Although not the best, the beer remained drinkable.
Aroma and taste are the same. Loaded with grains, leaves a metalic aftertaste.
Add something of corn with very light sweetness. Hard to make this beer look better than what it is.
