2.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Surprisingly decent beer. Certainly novel that it comes from Morocco, but not so special or something to seek out. Light round malt body, maybe some citrus in there. If you try very hard you can detect hops - otherwise un-bitter. Creamy mouthfeel with an oily finish on the lips.

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This one was a bit better than I expected, considering past experiences with African beers. Decent flavor and appearance, but nothing to write home about. Acceptable, nevertheless.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pale golden color, fairly strong foam. Candy aroma. The tste is very sweet (with hints of bread), but this sweetness is not boring at all. Pleasant surprise...

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bad start - this has a whiff of the Coronas about it (although not as bad). Flavours consist of soap and sugar. This finish so dry that it disappears leaving a trace of chalkiness and chemicals. Still better than I expected for a beer from Morocco!

A well balanced lager, nicely hoped, good body with a fine hoppy aftertaste

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Yellow, thin, and watery. Started with a very tall head. Ruined by a dominant taste of corn. One of the worst beers I have ever had.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Light straw colour, with a clean white head. Not overly carbonated, the beer is dry and refreshing. Light hop to start, not much in the middle, then a slightly spiced, possibly fruity finish. Slightly varible from the bottle though. You've got to get them fresh.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Grassy, fairly sharp hop aroma, but pleasant...Color is standard yellow-gold, but head is quite ample as is the speckled lace...Flavor is two-tiered, with sweet malt bottom anchoring a lightly tangy hop top-end. Carbonation is suitably light. The finish has faint floral accents, otherwise medium-dry. Balance is decent, and body is typically light, but acceptable...A quite drinkable but very ordinary lager.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pours with a pale yellow body topped by a thick white head with a decent amount of lace. Slightly sweet yet sour aroma with grassy notes and flowery accents. Slighlty sweet grassy flavor with sour bitter accents and a slightly bitter finish. Light bodied, smooth and slightly dry.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
A mainstream lager produced in a hot country, It is hard to pick any charateristics as it is simply a gold colored liquid with alcohol.
