3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
For a lager, this is decent. Probably the tastiest import lager currently available in Morocco’s monotonous beer market.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
500 ml can bought at the grand opening of Aeon in Tsuen Wan. Clear pale golden honey colour; One finger head and white foam which fades in 30 seconds; Minimal lacing and active carbonation; Sweet and pungent smell of malt, wet cardboard and light grass; Taste of fairly light and muted sweet malt, lemon, raw grass with hint of wet cardboard in the background, inoffensive though. Medium body and oily palate; Hop bitterness minimal, with grassy hop taste as semi finish; Fairly dry after taste, very easy to mouth.
Comments: the lowest abv from Harboe’s “Burg” series, it turns out to be the tamest and most drinkable - no glucose syrup in the mix to jack up the booze as in the tramp juice Burg 10% and Burg 12% - just the usual macro pale lager, nothing outstanding but nothing too offensive, either. Quaffable and okay as a macro.
