Bif (1695) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle- Pours a light golden color with a small head that fades fast with no real lacing. Mild aroma of malt and grain with a hint of sweetness. Flavor of some malt and grain with a mild bitterness and a dry finish. Light body and smooth. Seems to be the local beer of choice in Dakar. Not as bad as expected. Goes best with a hot afternoon.

Bottle at Le Meridien. Light yellow gold color, medium white head with poor retention. Aroma of intense black pepper. Taste of wet cardboard and straw.

bembelembe (216) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAY 23, 2011
Clear pale yellow body. Mid-high carbonated. Bitterish. Quite grainy and grassy. Addition of lemon is notable. Taste is bit industrial, soapy. Refreshing.

HermanW (1046) - Coevorden, NETHERLANDS - MAR 15, 2009
flesje. Gekregen van Anita en Annie uit Senegal. Smaakt een beetje naar Nederlands alcoholvrij bier. Het is gewoon niet zulk goed bier.

jeverszeuge (636) - GERMANY - FEB 26, 2009
# 1728 ersma: mein land nr. 65, bto-land nr. 123. "bgi" ist ja sozusagen das inbev afrikas und lässt das "flag" in diversen ländern brauen. ist schön, wenn man jemanden kennt, der beim irk arbeitet, und bei den diversen einsätzen in afrika stets meiner gedenkt und bier mitbringt :-) blass-gelbe farbe, viel mittelfeiner bis groberer schaum, der eine mäßige halbwertzeit aufweist. der geruch ist säuerlich-pappig. süßlicher antrunk mit etwas hopfen. die erwartete pappige note fällt dezenter aus als befürchtet. zur mitte kommt hopfen hinzu, es bleibt aber bis in den abgang süßlich. erst gegen ende übernimmt die herbe das geschehen. das ganze bewegt sich auf geschmacklich dünnem niveau. die 0.33-l-pulle hat ansprechende etiketten. auf dem rücketikett erfährt der des französischen mächtige, dass flag seit jahrzehnten einenunnachahmlichen erfolg auf dem afrikanischen kontinent hat. fazit: typisches äquator-lager. eher süffig als aromatisch, wie man es halt mag bei 35 grad im schatten.

yngwie (15381) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 18, 2008
Bottle. As expected, it pours a pale golden body, clear, with a small white head. Grainy, grassy, slightly artificial aroma. The flavor is grainy with pale malt and some flowery and fruity note. Thin body. Grainy finish. Not foul, but there’s not really much interesting to say about this beer. (080216)

OleR (4804) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 4, 2008
Shiny white head, pale golden color. Fresh, semi-dry aroma of grain/malt. A scent of lemonade and hay. Taste is medium sweet with a quite crisp maltiness. Notes of sharpish hops and chemicals. Lively mouthfeel. Thin-bodied with a short, dryish end. Far better than expected...

KnutAlbert (6377) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 7, 2007
Bottled, thanks to PeterA. Rubber aroma, some sweetness, but definitely a beer for rubber fetichists. Malt and hops are in there, too, but this is not very well brewed.

larsga (6684) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2007
Medium white head, mostly consisting of large bubbles. Pale yellow body. Strong rubbery aroma with intense rubbery notes over a rubbery background; mixed in are notes of bicycle tyres and tractor wheels. Intense chalky rubbery taste with strong chemical notes and a corn background. Settles into a dryish chalky rubbery aftertaste. Unpleasant; tastes like the chemicals will do you no good. (0.33l bottle from PeterA, via KnutAlbert.)

Gr0ve (2177) - Oslo, NORWAY - SEP 6, 2007
330 ml bottle. Pale golden. Slightly hazy. Sharp plastic-like citrusy aroma. Light crisp malts. Powdery. Synthetic flavours with a little citrus and rubber. Somewhat acidic. Fairly complex flavours, but it is for the most part very odd and awfully artificial. I suspect there to be a high percentage of non-barley in there. High bitterness towards the finish. Finishes dry.
