Malty, corn and wheat in the fragrance. The taste is the same but also thin too. Slightly bitter which fills the upper part of the mouth briefly. Okay beer but watery. Understand that they drink this in Nigeria. Over 30 degrees so needed something watery. Follow me @ Kung av öl @ Facebook for more pictures and ratings.

Bottle from Lambert’s, Bedford. Lagers yellow, maybe a bit deeper than others of its ilk. Aroma isn’t bad: citrus, grass, a bit of spice. Taste is foul. Euch. Sick and chemicals. But... hold on... it rounds up into an almost pleasant sweetness. All in all, I’ve had worse. The disgusting initial flavour fades quite quickly to the point where I stop noticing it. So not a drain pour but I’m glad I’m sharing it. I won’t be in a hurry to try another.

Bottle at work by Miso. Pours golden color, white head. Aroma is malty, grainy, some corn. Taste is medium sweet, malty, grainy. Pretty boring lager.

MoritzF (8676) - Bochum, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2014
(bottle, 65cl) Clear, golden colour with a blond medium-sized foamy head. Slightly papery corny, somewhat malty aroma with hints of rubber. Moderately sweet flavour, light to medium bodied with a moderate carbonation. Doughy and corny taste with shades of grassy hops; mildly sweet finish with a restrained level of bitterness. Poor. 01.IX.14

MarkoNm (1177) - Novo mesto, SLOVENIA - JUL 17, 2014
Pours a clear golden color, topped with quite some white head which settles down very quickly. The aroma is malty with some grains also picked up. The taste is light, watery, mostly malty and quite grassy. OK, but nothing special.

Bought at Tesco’s. Big bottle, looks nice. It tastes a little bit soapy, but not too bad. (Hard to say if other nigerian beers are better). Somehow typical industrial Lager Beer, hop character misses almost completely.

Erzengel (5062) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 21, 2014
The beer starts smooth, malty, not too thin, easy to drink. The mainpart is malty with nutty-herbal hints, fresh, smooth. The aftertaste is medium, not too watery, slightly sweet, slightly grainy, fresh-malty. Nice! 10/12/8/8
