1.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
500ml bottle. Pours a clear medium gold, with a small white head, which neither lasts well nor leaves much lace. The aroma is weak, with soap, adjuncts and some very faint hops. There is some artificial lemon up front, leading into cardboard and soap, with a metallic finish. A very poor lager indeed.

Golden color with medium white head. Nice lager appearance. Aroma is skunk, some malt and light floral hops. Medium mouthfeel with low carbonation. Aftertaste is dry with some alcohol, skunk and some lasting malt sweetness. Overall: very nice appearance. The adjuncts is very noticable. Nice sweetness in the end.

Rating from 2011: 33cl can. Vielen Dank an Hajo für dieses tansanische Mitbringsel!
Goldene Farbe, malziger Geruch.
Der Antrunk ist würzig-malzig, leicht herb. Der Hauptteil ist würzig-mittellang, voluminös und leicht trocken. Im Nachgeschmack ist das Bier mitellang, würzig-herb-wässrig-trocken, leicht metallisch!
--> etwas langweilig, aber trotz Maisstärke und Zucker ein recht trinkbares Bier!
--> Noten: 12,10,9,7,12,8 - 8,9

Sparkling golden body with a dense off-white head. Yeasty, wooden light malts nose. Sweet flavor with notes of acetone, wet cardboard and a stale bitterness. Light bodied.

0.33l can, courtesy of Kristine who brought this back to me from Tanzania. Big big thanks! Have to say that my expectations aren’t sky high, but let’s give it a go. Looks absolutely alright with a crystal clear pale golden body a big both lacing and lasting big white top. Doesn’t smell all that much really. Some malty sweetness with traces if something slightly metallic. No really shockers in the taste either, and the carbonation level is average, while it has a thin oily mouthfeel. Really easy to drink, even if it doesn’t taste all that much/good/exciting. Mary sweet, some light watery caramel and a little bit of corn. Big thanks for the Tanzanian lager Angel! 06.04.2013

1.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 5/20
Medium to bigger sized creamy vast yet quickly changing white foamy hea on top of a clear yellow golden colored beer.
The aromas already make clear this is anything but a deep complex beer: iron and herbs...
The flavour is a thin mix of malts, herbs, iron and some light light bitterness... Again less and less to discover. Very thin.
Aftertaste is malty and herbal with a light light metal bitter tone to it...
Low carbo, watery mouthfeel, low bodied and a watery texture.
Very thin beer and nothing to explore... Might be nice in hot weather in Tanzania, but in The Netherlands and its weather this tastes close to crappy...

500ml Bottle:found in a basket at the bottle shop in the National Brewery Museum at Burton-on-Trent (of all places), I wonder if Mr Coors knows what his staff are selling?
Poured into a ’Veltins’ badged pilsner stemmed tulip glass three times: golden, clear and bright, a typical lager/pilsner in fact complete with the white head of fast fading bubbles on each pour.
Grainy nose if any aromas at all, again typical of most beers within this style the world over.
Dry hop bitterness and a refreshing feel to the initial sip, it become sweeter as the beer settles in the mouth. Not great, but pleasant enough and better than a lot of mass produced lagers from Europe (and elsewhere).
A lager is a lager and this one was OK.

Bottle at Dar airport. It was a steamy night at the airport so any beer would have tasted great - somehow this still let me down.
