ComradeK (1070) - The Vale of Dundas, - NOV 28, 2012
330ml bottle. Pours a clear, pale gold, with a tiny and rapidly fading white head. The aroma is of soap, grain and faint urine. Nondescript stale hops lead into cardboard and weak cereal. There is some grass in the finish. Pretty terrible.

Alengrin (3235) - BELGIUM - JUL 11, 2015
Moroccon standard lager, ’premium beer’ as the label says, aimed at the tourists I suppose, hence the resounding name and the palm trees above it. Brown bottle, which does elicit a certain trust, I must say. Cristal clear golden colour, a tad deeper and more orangey than usual for the style, with even tiny bits of lager yeast here and there; regular but loose, snow white head, dense on the edges. Malt sweet aroma, dry cookies, sugar corn, dough, white candi syrup effect, soap, faint iron and rubber and very, very far away a grassy touch of hops, only noticeable when warming up and even then remaining very subdued. Simple malt sweet onset, more caramelly or biscuity than usual for the style (a feature already announced by the deep golden hue), with a metallic ’zing’ to it though not very disturbing; popcorn flavour too, bit oily mouthfeel but otherwise ’fuller’ than expected, with fairly spritzy carbo. Finishes in minerally carbonation, tingling on the root of the tongue and ’enlightening’ the boring, slick grainy and even ’soapy’ sweetness. I get a very faint touch of grassy hops all the way at the back, but very briefly so and not achieving anything bittering at all. Artificial, bland, sweet pale lager indeed, but in spite of the lack of hops, this still shows a more satisfying maltiness than is custom in these macro lagers. I cannot say I enjoyed, but it was in any case less bad than I expected. I guess this passes if served ice cold in Casablanca - or anywhere in Moroccan tourist attractions.

slowrunner77 (7100) - Reno, Nevada, USA - JUN 10, 2015
bottle via Canada: pretty standard pale lager. I could see this being decent enough sitting in Morocco on a beach, but here in the real world, an average pale lager. Crisper and better than some, still a pale lager, though.

Bottle. Clear yellow colour with white foam. Aroma: wheat, malts. Taste: malts, hint of caramel, some hoppy notes, a bit watery. Nothing special but better than many commercial lagers out there.

330 ml. bottle. Thanks Marko! Pours a clear gold with a nice white head. Mild aroma and taste of malt, grain, and caramel. Nothing great here, but nothing bad either. Drinkable.
