Grumbo (1367) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2015
Bottle from Zimbabwe brought to UK by a neighbour. Pours an attractive bright golden colour with a decent sized long lasting white head. Aroma of maize with a touch of pepper. A light sweetness to it, with a good level of bitterness. Body is light, thin but slightly oily texture. Average and steady carbonation level, thought this was quite a decent pale lager.

Can shared by Caleb, thanks! Pours a clear light yellow with a touch of gold and a white head that dissipates quickly to the edges. Aroma is full of corn and straw with a bit of earthy grain underlying. Flavor has lots of corn as well with some sweet grain and a bit of earthy bread.

In the can @ Darkness Eve thanks to CLevar. Clear yellow appearance with a white head. Slightly metallic nose with a touch of floral notes and corn. Flavor is a bit too sweet along with little hops. Not horrible.
