kajser27 (365) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 15, 2015
Pale golden, low white head which quickly dissipates to a white ring. Aroma is malty, low on grains and metallic. Taste again malts, grains, metallic and some low breadiness in the finish. Low but noticeable earthy hoppy bitterness. Hops? In Africa!? Light to medium bodied. Much better than anything else Rwanda has to offer. Also draught leaves a better impression than the bottled versions.

Sibarh (153) - Białystok, POLAND - MAR 1, 2015
But. 0,33, alkohol 5,5 %. Kolor - jasny złocisty, klarowny. Piana - drobna, średnio wysoka, średnio trwała. Zapach - lekki słodowy, z nutą zielonobutelkową. Smak - lekki słód, leciutki chmiel, lekki kwasek i słodycz, lekka goryczka i cierpkość. W Rwandzie musi być świetne...

Jur (452) - 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 (1256) - Göteborg, 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 (6345) - 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 (2083) - 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 (1324) - Dorking, 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 (1243) - 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 (9004) - 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.
