Cimbasso (487) - - SEP 24, 2015
Sampled from a 50cl bottle. A golden-coloured lager, with a good malty taste and clean flavours. I have tried many foreign lagers and was prepared to be disappointed, but this beer is well made: it has good flavours, is refreshing and mildly bitter. Perfect for a hot climate beer.

A migic blend of Elephant dung and hyena sweat, brewed together by a drunk shaman, i guess.

Yorker (1862) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2015
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear golden yellow with a white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma and flavour are grains, malt, and hops - with a slightly bitter finish.

Alengrin (3686) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2015
Kenya’s national standard lager, referring to the African elephant. From a 50 cl bottle, with slight gushing upon opening - must be the first time I experience this in a filtered lager. Creamy, medium sized, off-white head leaving some lacing, crowning a pure and clear golden beer with steady fizz. Sweetish, grainy aroma of dry cookies, white bread dough, soaked corn, wet cloth, iron, something vaguely plastic-like and a grassy hop touch without actually smelling of hops. Grainy, straightforward flavour, soft but finely stinging carbo, sweetish and sourish grains with a slick, lightly oily mouthfeel, corny sweetishness, metallic, with persisting grain sweetishness in the finish adorned with a light grassy hop touch, very lightly bittering but otherwise rather thin and a bit watery, as usual in this style. Another boring and industrial pale lager, but admittedly very drinkable, more so than I expected.
