MPA (793) - Amager (form. Nørrebro&Aalborg), DENMARK - AUG 23, 2014
Can. Very cloudy with lots of sediment. Aroma of grain, citrus and a little metal. A little malty, bready sweetness with a decent bitter finish and a slight metallic taste. I ended up pouring this out, when I saw something resembling Jimmy Hoffa floating around in it.

Alengrin (1296) - BELGIUM - AUG 2, 2014
Popular mass-marketed standard lager, golden colour with snow white head as usual, lightly malty nose, taste light pale maltiness but thin and watery mouthfeel, very little hops in the finish. Very bland.

Mainuh_man (107) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 13, 2014
0.5L bottle. Pour clear pale with a rocky white head. Aromas of dust and grass. Flavor is pretty lacking in this one. Some hints of bready malt, and then some not-so-pleasant hops. Light body with a thin mouthfeel. Overall, a pretty crappy lager that doesn’t have anything noteworthy, except that it’s one of only a few beers that can be found in Zambia!

Test no 500! Looks good, taste not spectacular but could be worse; somehow chemical especially to the end. But in case you are thirsty and in South Africa: It’s OK.

Malty sweet aroma, little bitter on first taste less sweet then your typical North American lager. All in all just a lager nothing special was good with my burger.

erickok (3499) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 1, 2014
Golden shiny body and flimsy head. Grainy, white sugar. Ugh. Way too heavy carbonation. Bad and too sweet. And expensive. (Bottle at My Food Sud Africain during the 1FRBG)
