2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

2.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
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.

2.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 8/20
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
