65cl bottle @ RBBWG III, thanks Tderoeck. BB 05/2014.
Dorée, col blanc moyen.
Bière sèche avec pas mal de pétillant, note de maïs, pâle et ce fini métallique typique. Retrouve très peu de caractère au niveau des houblons. Ok, mais franchement rien de spécial.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
65 cl. bottle sampled @ RBBWG 2014. Courtesy of & thx! to tderoeck. BBF 05/2014 – I believe it was. Pale apple juice with white bubbles for a head. Nose is oddly very sweet, sweet apples, aspartame-type sweeteners & cheap aspirin. Taste is bitter grains, something musty, wet hay, aspartame-type sweeteners, expired aspirin,… Fizzy. Tempted to call this bad by even African beer standards. “The Queen of Beers”? Oh, lord.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Very clear, golden body with quickly dissipating head. Super mild aroma, not every very grainy, just some cereal sugars. Taste is equally bland. Even more so than I expected. Not only bad though but perhaps a bit too sweet to be refreshing; or too little carbonation. I think I’d want something more bitter and clean when I would be in teh Camaroon heat. Oh who am I kidding, I got it from an African store here in France... ;)
