1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
Snow white top on a clear pissy bottom. The ususal grain aroma with a sweet edge. Thin pilsner flavor again with some sweetness and a herbal touch. Lack of bitterness. Not the worst intl. lager, but would probably taste a lot better if drunk in Zambia!

0.7 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
Poured pale gold with a small white head that quickly dissipated and left very little lacing. The aroma was weak but of sweet malt. The little taste detectable was mildly sweet and perhaps a hint of bitterness. There was little to note on the palate other than it compared well to water and the instantaneous finish affirmed such. Overall, not satisfied. There are enough domestics that are this disappointing, no need to go through the hassle of getting beer from Zambia for the same outcome.

Shared bottle at local tasting. Pale golden colour, moderate white head. Weak aroma, fruity hints. Bland and dry flavour, papery and cardboard notes. One to forget.

0.8 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 1/20
Bottle. Thanks to Svend from ØlKonsortiet. Or really: I love you a little less, my friend. ;-) Golden, white head, aroma of old grains and hops flavour is also very grainy and not my cup of...beer. Maybe this should be fresh from the brewery? Not a good experience.

340 ml bottle, thanks to Enjoyit. Clear golden body with a small, lacing white head. Aroma is light grainy and not much more. Flavor is much the same, light grainy and low bitterness. Thin body and short in aftertaste. Quite plain, but no faults.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, golden beer with a small, white head. The aroma is fruity with a touch of grass, not much malts. Canned fruits too. It’s medium to thin bodied and nicely carbonated, with flavors of canned and fresh northern fruits, white sugar without the sweetness and a faint bitterness. Short finish. Well, for an African pale lager it isn’t bad. 140110
