Apr 2015 - 330ml can from Savanna shop, 4.5%, BB Jun 2015, produced in SA. Clear yellow, sparkling, small foamy white head. Aroma is musty, a little vegetal. Body is medium, foamy, low carbonation. Taste is light with some watery green tea, faint wafer biscuit, touch of vegetable stock, tonic water. Light flavour. Only slightly offensive. Quite plain really. Gets better over time.

Abrakarl (417) - SWEDEN - NOV 17, 2014
Nothing really different from the other big beers of SA, malty with slight hops and high carbonation. Pretty low ABV so that drivers can have at least 2 bottles legally...
