Jeppe (2631) - Brooklyn, Alabama, USA - JUN 25, 2008
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!

McNeillR (2142) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JAN 7, 2016
Very, very pale golden. Neat white ringed cap. Nose is grassy, grainy as fuck. Initial is like dried out custard and rice. Carbonation is very firm, mouthfeel laughably uncrisp. Urgh.

Bottle, Garvies, Cheers Amy’s Maw

Wombata (614) - Kobe, JAPAN - SEP 16, 2015
Bottle brought back by Steve. Aroma: Grain, yeast, clean (i.e., not earthy), light. Flavor: Grain evolves into a sweeter bready grain. Finishes with a medium bitterness on the front-mid part of the tongue rather than in the throat. Comment: Well-balanced. Surprisingly well made.

Tott (7) - GREECE - JUL 11, 2015 does not count
So far the best beer in zambia. Had this in ndola july 2015. What means fresh from the brewery as it gets produced here. Aroma: bit malty bit hops, some sweetness. Light in colour and Foam was good. Taste: maize and sugar is used for brewing it which explains the bit watery/empty taste. with slight malt and caramel flavours. Bitterness not strong. Overall: high drinkability as it has only 4% and goes down like water. Especially on hot day in zambia

Manslow (1018) - Warsaw, POLAND - APR 22, 2015
Butelka 0,5l wypite w Zambii w 2013r. Kolor jasnozłoty, piana biała, szybko zanika. Aromat lekko słodowy, cytrusy. Smak owocowy,lekko wytrawne. Nagazowanie dobre. Typowe z Afryki.

Drjohnrock (680) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 13, 2015
Twelve ounce bottle from co-worker (thanks, Craig!), tasted on February 12, 2015. Clear light yellow color, assertive adjunct nose, initial watery mouthfeel gives way to tartness, slight astringency. Quite a lot of adjuncts evident. Drinkable and certainly better than the crap this megabrewery puts out with the Miller name on it but not worth going out of your way for unless you want the tick for the country.

tderoeck (7663) - Gent, BELGIUM - OCT 31, 2014
6/X/14 - 33cl can @ home - BB or canned: 22/VI/14, I think canned, since I only just got it from a guy who just came back from Africa (2014-1181) Thanks to Annemie for the can!

Clear pale blond beer, big aery white head, little stable, bit adhesive. Aroma: sweet, malty, grains, hay, bit off. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: watery, slightly bitter, bit of citrus, grassy. Aftertaste: pretty bitter, bit metallic, watery, sweet, sugary touch.
