Beershine's rating

   AROMA 5/10   APPEARANCE 2/5   TASTE 6/10   PALATE 2/5   OVERALL 11/20
Beershine (5218) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - SEP 30, 2012
Bottle, from a Durban area store. Pours thin and fizzy, and whatever head there is, vanishes to leave a flat brew with only a few signs of bubbly life. The aroma is oddly dirty, like--dirt, soil, even mold. It’s not as unpleasant as it sounds, it’s just not smells normally associated with even an unusual beer. The flavors are 180 degrees turnabout with some nice dark caramel and toffee flavors as well as some light chocolate. Thin but drinkable, and leagues ahead of the Laurentina pale.

aleksander9 (480) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUL 3, 2014
Pours black with nice tan head. Aroma is old gym socks, roasted malt and chocolate. Creamy palate. Aftertaste is chocolate, roasted malt and lingering roasted and noble hop finish. Overall: What a surprising beer. Nice roasted and chocolate tones for a mass produced beer. No best before date might be the reason for the old gym socks in the aroma.

DesertDevil (534) - Arizona, USA - JUN 11, 2014
12-oz. bottle. Odd malty aroma of stale caramel malt, Worcester sauce, and a touch of old malt vinegar. Pours the color of cola with reddish-amber highlights and no head. Light spices (allspice, cardamom?) on the taste with date sugar, moldy cardboard, and cracked wheat crackers. There’s no detectable hop bitterness at all. Relatively light body. It’s pretty apparent this bottle has some oxidation issues, but the beer was better than anticipated (though I must admit my expectations were pretty low).

Splitenz (331) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2014
A surprisingly complex darker beer from Mozambique. This beer has apparently survived years of war, as it stems from the colonial days. In as such, quite an achievement. I drank this a few times in South Africa, and found it the equal if not superior to most RSA beers (not however the Namibian beers who towered over them all).

WhoU (118) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 14, 2014
Bottle Cape Town. Pours very dark marmite with small fading head and medium carbination. Aroma is toffee molasses coffee and chocolate cacoa rum. Taste is sweet syrup. Mouthfeel is syrupy. Overall not bad at all.

   AROMA 6/10   APPEARANCE 3/5   TASTE 9/10   PALATE 4/5   OVERALL 15/20
AtronSeige (656) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 3, 2013
Aroma: Cacao, coffee, stewed fruit, burnt toffee, Appearance: Very dark, appears black but hues of red. Light brown, thin head that dies away completely, good lacing. Taste: Cacao, dry, dark malt, astringency, dried plum/raisin, very crisp. Palate: Highly carbonated, strong carbonation string, medium body Overall: A really nice beer. The bite is too strong, but it dies away, leaving a more enjoyable beer. I could have too many of these! 330 ml bottle, poured.

Imaena (1858) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - MAR 8, 2013
Bottle. This is not bad for a brew from Africa. This beer has nice malty flavor and some hints of roasting.

Coolmac (54) - SOUTH AFRICA - OCT 19, 2012
Brown foam quickly dissipates. Sweet caramel aroma. Taste is, sweet caramel, coffee & toffee, very low bitterness. Medium thin body. Easy drinking, very enjoyable beer.
