2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottled. Poured medium golden with lots of rising carbonation, floating crud, and it had a splotchy white dusting of head... not at all appetizing. Aroma was more pleasant... sweet pale malts, a hint of lemon zest, a bit of pine, corn... Flavor was a step down from there with definite corn syrup action, a muddled blend of mild citrus bitterness, sugared-up pale malts, and a bit of cardboard. Tacky and grainy on the palate with high carbonation. Not really offensive save for the appearance, but not toward the top of the style.

Mild candy aroma and a hint of spice, light yellow, pours a small white head. Soft wheat taste? mild spice and malt also. Light bodied, sweet, average. A new country,Thanks Radek Kliber!

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle in Marrakech. It’s beer brewed in Morocco, what can you expect. It was nice on a hot spring day and it beat the local water. Decent beer, nothing I would drink outside Morocco.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. Blond bodied with a small white head. Nose is atrocious upon pouring. Wet grass, moldy hay and skunky hops. Taste is a bit better, sweet malts, cereal notes and light grassy hops. Actually, it’s rather refreshing. Body is bubbly but not over carbonated and not really fizzy. Lighter bodied but it fits, so no mark downs for that. Finishes with a dry malts, unsweetened cereal, and light grass notes. Not too horrible and I finally got Morocco!

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle. White short lasting head, amberish color. Aroma of corn and touch of malt. Flavors of malts and corn, strange sweetness, somewhat waterish taste actually. Short aftertaste. First and only beer I´ve had from Marocco. Far from impressed. Not one to enjoy.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours golden with smallish white top.
Sweet, grainy nose, slightly mineral.
Sweet pale malts dominate the scene. High carbonation. Plain, fairly clean lager.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
12 fl. oz. bottle from Beers of the World. App.: med.-light golden colour with a froathy, white head. Lovely until I emptied the bottle and ended up with a multitude of linty flecks...yeast?? Aroma: resinous hops, a faint hint of malt and cereal beneath that. Maybe a little grassiness and sulphur. Palate: med. bodied, with fairly soft carbonation. Flav.: a touch of sweetness, a bit of cereal maltiness. An absolute minute hint of bitterness and a clean finish. From some of the other comments, seems that QC is sketchy, but this was a very well-spent 88 cents!!

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
So skunky it is almost a cliche. Sharp and anal gland like. Actually that aroma fades out and gives way to a faint spritzy sweet/grain aroma. The body is a pale gold and holds a thick and fluffy white head that is fairly lasting. Looks nice. Very light watery flavor in the fore segues into some grainy heartiness, fairly low sweetness considering all the S. American and Tropical Lagers I have had recently. I can even imagine I taste a faint smattering of some flavoring hops though no real bitterness. The finish is watery, but works for somereason. This is not at all a bad Pale Lager really even though the style does nothing for me.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 7/20
[Bottle. Gnoff delivers.]
Golden colour. Frothy, bubbly head. Slight metallic aroma, with hints of citrus. Feels watery. Which it is. Very light bodied. Grassy flavour, cooked vegetables and a light maizy finish. Bit papery. A bit on the sour side, and pungent.
