Eructoblaster (2949) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 5, 2013
Bottle - 330ml. Boring pale blond body with good carbonation and a thin white foamy head. Light malty/hoppy aroma with herbal and bready hints. taste is thin and carries strange cabbage notes. Ends with a short malty/herbal finish. Useless.

Bierkrug (2131) - Garmisch-Partenkirchen, Bavaria, GERMANY - FEB 10, 2012
On tap at a hotel in Dakar, Senegal. Pours the normal African Pale Lager light yellew color with a soft white bubbley head. Aroma is stale malt and rubber. Taste is a raw mix of faint cardboard and chemicals. Palate is relitivley normal but the beer itself is of low quality.

The word pale is appropriate here. The beer is pale in appearances. The flavor pales in comparison to most other beers. Counting the minutes you wasted tasting this beer when you could have been sampling others makes you go pale.

Bottle, shared by KnutAlbert. The major interest in this beer, at least for me, is that it’s the one beer needed to finish all of the Senegal beers on Ratebeer. The beer itself is a waste of water, barley and hops. It pours a clear, pale golden or rather yellowish, with a white head. The pleasant part of the aroma is the grains and the touch of cooked vegetables, but there’s also a little note of rubber, almost making me lower my score to 2. The same goes for the flavor, which is lower on cooked vegetables, but has a touch of hops to improve it. Still, I’m very doubtful about my 3 on flavor. Thin and watery mouthfeel. It’s drinkable, but you better drink fast, be sure to swallow it immediately, as it’s only suited to slake the thirst, not to enjoy. (080216)

OleR (4762) - Oslo, NORWAY - FEB 28, 2008
Low white head, pale yellow/golden body. Aroma of sweaty, worn out clothes and car tires. Taste is dry, unfresh malts with some unpleasant notes of wet cardboard, rubber and medicine. A truly abortive beer.

Bottle. Rubber shoe aroma, weird malty flavour, seems like they used the shoe box in the brewing process, too. Nasty.

larsga (6120) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2007
Medium white head, mostly big bubbles. Yellow body. Intense aroma of rubber and sweaty dried-in socks. Imagine walking around the Sahara for two weeks in the same woolen socks and same rubber boots; at the end of it they would smell like this. Dry chemical intensely rubbery taste, densely chalky, with powerful cardboard notes. As if they dissolved the cardboard box the rubber boots came in, and used that as well. This is seriously unpleasant. It grates on me in a major way. I don’t think I would ever finish a bottle of this. I could, but I wouldn’t, unless I were dying of thirst. (0.33l bottle from PeterA, via KnutAlbert.)

Gr0ve (2127) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2007
330 ml bottle. Golden colour (surprisingly dark actually). Tall white coarse head. Rich rubbery malt aroma. Not very nice. High carbonation. Crisp hop flavours and a medium maltiness. Light-bodied. More balanced than the other two from the same brewery, but still very industrial and rather artificial.

PeterA (340) - SLOVAK REPUBLIC - AUG 16, 2006
Chemical aroma. Light yellow color with a white head. The flavor was metallic with some grassy hints. The beer was very carbonated. Just not a good beer.
