Butelka 0,33l wypite w Mali 2005r. Kolor jasnozłoty, piany brak. Zapach lekko słodowy, smak kwaskowo-słodowy. Nagazowanie przyzwoite. Na tamtejsze upały O.K.

Kolor - złoty, klarowny. Piana - drobna, średnio wysoka, trwała. Zapach - słodowo-chmielowy leciutki. Smak - lekki słód, lekki chmiel, lekki kwasek, lekka słodycz i goryczka. W Afryce musi być świetne.

Bottle courtesy of Angela, thanks! Clear golden yellow color, flat. Aroma of moldy cardboard. Taste is worse. Profoundly disgusting.

Smells like a bucket of wet corn. Seriously. It is smooth and almost overly carbonated. I guarantee the first time you put down your bottle or glass the foam will immediate start to overflow. I drank this stuff for over 4 years living abroad. Absolutely nothing special whatsoever. But it does grow on you after awhile considering there are not many other choices in Francophone West Africa.

Yo..if you’re in Mali, this beer isn’t bad. anywhere else, and it kinda sucks. sour smelling and bitter tasting, it will get you by in a pinch -like it has for me the last few weeks- but it will leave you looking forward to your favorite as soon as you can get your hands on it.-SNR

[Bottled] Clear golden, minimal head. Aroma of corm amd/or other adjuncts. Sweet and fruity with notes of vegetables and mellow mouthfeel. Harsh resiny finish.

Hey, here ya go, someone finally claims the title "Queen of Beers". Gold, small head, no lace. Grainy, some gingery hop stuff. I taste adjuncts - maybe corn? Not so sure about this one, approach with caution!

clear pale golden colour, few head, very low on hops, plastic notes, slightly tart, medium-bodied, short dry finish - the label is right: this is the Queen of Beers! ... and I know her King...

’the Queen of Beers’. Dark straw; grainy nose; porridgey corn, and a touch of herbaceous hops and unobtrusive rotten cabbage.
