2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
330 ml can shared by Travlr: Pours a clear pale golden with a stringy-lacing white head. Has a lightly sweet pale malty nose with some grassy noble hops. Starts with a mild pale malty sweetness and decent bittering hop balance, but pretty uninteresting. Not offensive and has decent drinkability.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
330mL can courtesy of Travlr. The pour is a clear straw with a diminishing white head. Nose is macro lager grainy, sugary candies, fresh apple juice. Taste is inoffensive: sweet, sugary, mild pineapple fruitiness, mild soap. Not too bad actually. Germantanker99’s rating of this might be an all time RB classic.

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
33cl can at Bushman’s Rock. 4.2 abv. It poured a golden yellow colour with an enormous white foamy head. Aroma is a bit malty with notes of grass and wet cardboard. Flavour is a tad bitter. Carbonated. Notes of grains, grass and wet cardboard again. Just another lager, but at least I can check off another beer from an uncommon country.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Smells sweet with a hint of hops. Looks like an average beer, but the head is nice and foamy. Tastes sweet and fruity, a bit of hops, but not overpowering. The finish is not too sweet. It’s a pretty good sweet lager, not great, but all right.

1.9 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Had a few of these while I was in Zimbabwe. Pours a clear straw color. Minimal head and the same with the nose. Flavor was bland to say the least. Perhaps my opinion is lower because I had some Zambezis at the same time, which carry a bit more flavor. Either way, I wasn’t overly impressed as you can tell from the ratings and have to say it was my least favorite beer out of my recent Africa trip.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottled. Pale yellow, small creamy head. Some spicy hops up front. Light-medium bodied with clean mouthfeel and low bitterness. Flawless, but very typical tropical lager.
