COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottle.
Brewed under licence since 1970.
Ingredients: Water, Malt, Hops.
**Nigerian beers by law are made with a portion of sorghum. A grant has been made to aid in the growing of sorghum which the brewer will buy as it lowers the proportion of malt in its product. This is the difference in formulation between Gulder Lager (Nigeria) and Gulder Lager (Ghana).**

BlackHaddock (3598) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - AUG 12, 2014
60cl Bottle: from Beers of Europe, opened on 12th Aug 2014 and shared with my son. Pours the typical light golden colour you would expect from a Pale Lager, same non-lasting white head too. Mid-range in hop and maltiness for the style, next to no aroma (also true to style). Slight corn feel to the overall flavour with some sweetness and not a bad example of a global beer type.

visionthing (2675) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 2, 2014
60cl bottle at Berlin bierfestival. Pours clear pale golden with a small white head. Mild grainy aroma with some strange notes, possibly sorghum. Not much hops to speak of. Hardly very interesting, but drinkable on a hot day.

SlackerMads (1513) - Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 1, 2014
Bottle. Clear golden with some impurities and a medium sized diminishing white head. Grain, eggs, grass, candle wax. Light/medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, light/medium sweet and bitter and a bit acidity. Unpleasant texture.

ThirstyBird (1506) - Düsseldorf, GERMANY - APR 23, 2014
Thanks to erzengel for sharing! Pours a clear pale yellow with a nice white cap. The smell is grain and a bit of crisp hops. The taste is initially some light malt sweetness then grain followed by a crisp, dry ending. Light in body with average carbonation.

Erzengel (2536) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - APR 20, 2014
60 cl bottle, BB 29072014 3206566Q0454
Pale golden in the glass, grainy-sharp nose. The beer starts malty, smooth. A bit malty-earthy-dry in the mainpart (how does Sorghum-malt taste? Probably this taste is it?). The aftertaste is slightly bitter, crisp and dry. Some nice earthy components, a dry bitterness stais with hints of grain on the tongue.
Not a bad brew for a Pale Lager --> 10/12/9/9

edsspoon (367) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2014
Golden with a foamy white head. Good retention, thin lacing. Aroma of citrus, sweet malt and toastiness. Taste is slightly bitter with malt and citrus followefd by sweetness and a touch of roasted malt. Some hints of dustiness, firewood and vanilla. Fairly terrible.
