Can, tasted in Lesotho (june 2012). Golden, textbook pilsner-colour, white foamy head. Lots of defects in the aroma and taste, metallic, dusty, medicinal. Very bad pilsner overall (but a great souvenir).

2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Can shared at the Cotteridge Convention. Big thanks to my friends Jon & James for taking this back for me. It pours pale gold with a small white head. The nose is soft, doughy, clean, straw and sweet grain. The taste is crisp, clean, dough, grainy, light grass, straw and cereal with a short, dry finish. Light-medium body and fine carbonation. Easy-drinking and not bad for the style. Easily Lesotho’s finest beer.

2.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
24th Jan 2015: a country tick I thought I’d never get. Cheers ’Scopey’ for bringing the can to the Cotteridge Wines meeting. Pours your normal lager/pilsner look: clear, clean and bright golden, usual white fading head too. Weak aroma with mild light malt and straw notes (maybe). Fairly sweet but not corn syrup style, grainy, yes. Leaning towards a dry bittering finish and on the whole one of the better ’lager/pilsners’ brought to the mega session.

Can share. Cotteridge Beano. Clear gold. White, bubbly head. Corn. Sugar. Bit of dry. Not bad, but nothing to write home about, either. Could be one of any number.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Can shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2014. Big thanks to Paul via Bunce. Pours perfectly clear yellow with a frothy white crown. The beer actually smells alright, with notes of biscuits and hay. Light sweet flavor with pleasant dry pale bread, mild bitter hay, lemon rind. Light bodied with average carbonation. Clean finish with further biscuity pale malts, straw. Solid. Quite impressed by this one.
