The aroma is full of hops and corn. The taste is full of hops and honey. Typical pilsner color. Not that impressing but I have grown a big fond of this beer since the first time I traveled to South Africa. I have become a decent drinker of this beer, drinking it on a daily basis on my 14 days long vacation.

Holmen2 (1644) - NORWAY - MAR 17, 2015
From tap at Alba Easy Longe at Durban Airport 17.03.15. Pale and clear straw colour. Bright, white head. Not much aroma. Perhaps a hint of maize. Waterish taste, with hints of maize and artificial sweetener. Low bitterness. Just another bland eurolager.
