Had in bottle in South Africa. Probably the least favorite of the African beers I tried. Thin lager, no real taste ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Served a bottle at Lola’s in Victoria Falls Zimbabwe. Poured into a glass - a darker gold color. Very bubbly. Smells earthy and grainy. Syrupy taste? A heavier lager with lots of flavor. Not great but drinkable

12 oz can labeled Delta Beverages, 21 Manchester Road, Harare. Deep golden color, large fluffy white head. Aroma of white pepper and straw. Taste is wet cardboard. Typical developing country lager.

Tin. Poured pale yellow with thin fast dissipating white head. Maize aroma, this smelled more like a maize beer. Thin body, a little malt, a lot of maize. Small amount of bitter finish. This is just another adjunct loaded macro lager, very unremarkable. Now that I’ve had one for old time’s sake, I can go back to ignoring it.

Moving along in my African beers, this one has probably been my least favourite. Poured a clear golden colour with a small white head. Just couldn’t get myself over that noticeable corn aroma and taste that dominates the beer. Fairly malty with just a slight bitterness near the finish.Thanks John!

Stinks of corn starch, alcohol, tinniness, and some hops. Not appealing to start with. Has some head, but really styrofoamy. Has decent dark gold colour though. Not a bad mix of flavours, hops, maltiness, with a nice finish, and no real trace of alcohol.

Rediscovered this beer awhile back after i havent seen it in stores for a long time. Not a top ranking beer, preverably drinked quicker than usual. Not a very strong tasting beer.

Bottle: Appearance of a pale golden colour, with a crisp white head that also seems to dissappear very quicky, which doesn’t lend itself to being drunk slowly for enjoyment. Not much lacing on the glass either. Aroma is a bit sour and has a bitter note lingering. The taste for me is not much to be desired either, a sour taste through drinking and a bitter aftertaste. It sends shivers down my spine when served at room temprature. It has to be ice cold. It has a watery taste, which is why it’s ok to down one quicky on a hot day. Not to be savoured slowly.. Urgh!!
