Bottle (courtesy of Travlr and I am assuming Nathan - huge thanks as I don’t think I’ll be able to get to Rwanda in the next couple months). Sour barley malt aroma. Medium yellow with small head. Lightly sweet lemon, barley malt, and grass flavor. Actually quite impressive given the origin.

Brought back from Rwanda by a friend--thanks John! Light yellow color, big fluffy white foam, like shampoo lathering. Mildly skunky aroma, thin body, very mild carbonation. Not at all bitter, light flavor, somewhat adjuncty, but inoffensive.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 7/20
Poured from 500ml bottle at Gorilla Mountain View Lodge in Rwanda.
Clear, light yellow with a large off-white head and fair lacing.
Aroma of malt and grain.
Taste of malt, grain and a modicum of spicy hops that are much needed to give the beer a little character. Otherwise, this is just a slightly sweet, malt lager.
Light body an medium carbonation.
Inoffensive, drinkable and even refreshing, but with little character.

Bottle. Thanks to Nuffield for sharing this with me, and thanks to TChrome for joining us for a drink. A clear yellow color with a white head. Musty aroma with a smooth clean flavor. Better than expected and a hint of sweetness.
