Tinned, Pasteurised. Pale yellow frothy water. This is a thin cheap poor beer with little to recomend it by. Tinny, copper flavoured, depressingly awful.

Can purchased in Malawi as a change from the local beers. Looks like beer but tastes like bubbly corn water. No aroma. Any malt or hops are well hidden behind corn and soap. Not very pleasant. I may just turf it in favor of the local rot gut gin as a night cap... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dorada clara, brillante con dos dedos de blanca espuma. Aroma marcado a malta, igual que el sabor. Carbonatacion media. Parece como a medio hacer. Floja.

minutemat (2391) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - JUN 8, 2015
330ml bottle @ Shrewsbury Beer Share, May 15, courtesy of myself. Pours clear gold. Sweetish euro-lager taste. Inoffensive palette cleanser.

Appearance with golden color and small head. Aroma is very light. On the palate, it is also light and could not taste the hops...

The_Osprey (3031) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 16, 2015
Apr 2015 - 330ml bottle from the Savanna shop, 5.0%, BB Sep 2015, brewed in RSA. The world’s best bottled lager in 2000 apparently. I just bought this out of interest because they sponsor the Springboks. Pale orange, clear, lightly sparkling, small white head. Aroma is a little meaty, musty, doughy, touch of sick maybe. Body is medium, slightly foamy, lowish carbonation. Taste is tangy, quite dry, not overly sweet (as advertised), a little bitter. Musty, papery, maybe a touch of rosemary. Not bad if you prefer a dry lager over a sweet one. Fine, drinkable.

Pyrmir (4067) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - APR 14, 2015
Canned during Malawi vacation. This was one of the worst beers I’ve ever had. Aroma and taste had powerful notes of boiled vegetables, rotting notes mixed with pale malt.

blackisle (1141) - IJburg, NETHERLANDS - APR 8, 2015
Bottle 33cl. Clear medium golden, big frothy white head, good retention and lacing; sweet malty nose, corn, grass; taste medium sweet, light bitter, bit soapy; light to medium body, oily texture, average carbonation, aftertaste light bittersweet, cardboard, bit artificial; all in all disappointing.

Burk från kollega. Drucken ur burken... Söt lager med metallburkskänsla... Sötare än väntat annars helt enligt plan...

MSBrindbergs (559) - Solna, SWEDEN - MAR 7, 2015
Drucken ur burk från MrHult. Luktar metall och malt. Smakar metall och malt. Blaskigt men maltigt. Vad ska man säga... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pale golden color, clear; quickly dissipating white head - faint malt aroma, hints of grains, some grassy hops - light sweet and light bitter taste - light body, thin and sticky aroma, average carbonation - short, slightly bitter finish.
