Jur (285) - NETHERLANDS - JUL 28, 2014
Draught @ Serena Hotel, Kigali. Metallic nose and taste, bit fizzy and artificial, but I have had worse in Africa. Still, mehh...

ramboraffe (401) - SWEDEN - MAR 18, 2014
A well deserved lager in the heat. Mützig pours up light yellow with quite a lot of foam, that leaves some lacings. Taste is actually not too bad. Very light taste. Almost no hops taste.

ogivlado (5666) - Zagreb, CROATIA - JUN 30, 2013
Bottled 650ml. -Pale golden coloured, medium sized white head, dusty grainy nose. Some sweet malt, grain and corn with light hoppy notes. Light bitter finish. Drinkable and not so bad as I’ve expected.

Imaena (1817) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 10, 2013
Bottle and Draught. This is a simple pale lager that does what you want a beer to do in a tropical climate.

olliejobbins (767) - Surrey, ENGLAND - JAN 15, 2013
660ml bottle. Had lots of these whilst in rwanda for 3 weeks. I seem to recall it was better than primus and nice and refreshing. Did drink this 14 months ago. Very carbonated I think?

manuchampions (1236) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2010
Bomber hand carried back from Rwanda by my very wonderful friend Amanda (you rock). Light pissy yellow on pouring with decent white head. Very sweet lager nose. German style in taste with sharp bitterness but also an unwelcomed cereal (corn) adjunct taste as well. Finish was forgettable. A macro style globo-lager but with some hold over of better German beers that likely preceded it during colonial days.

JoeMcPhee (8357) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - MAR 27, 2010
Found this bottle in the back of my fridge. Bright golden colour. The nose is lightly grassy with a kiss of grainy malts. It’s fairly dry on the finish with a simple earthy hop bitterness.

Cletus (6354) - Connecticut, USA - OCT 5, 2008
Pours gold with a white head. Smells soapy and earthy with some peppery hints. Tastes sweet and chewy with a slightly skunky finish.

mabel (5414) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 5, 2008
[1333-20080508] 650mL bottle. Sweet candied corn syrup aroma with a bit of malted candy. Clear, medium orange body with a small long-lasting creamy white head. Sweet candied corn continues in the flavour with bland wheat characteristics. Light-medium body. Not great but decent enough.

jercraigs (7782) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - MAY 9, 2008
2008-05-08. Crisp golden yellow with a massive white head and decent lacing. (3+) Lightly sweet grainy aroma, with a similar flavour of light grains, and a side note of grains that I assume to be the "cereals" noted on the label. Average palate. Touch bland and lacking hops, but dramatically better than I expected. Thanks for sharing Jon! Bottle shared by Jon Walker
