2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Pours pale golden with a frothy white head, which slowly disappears. Aroma of lime and orange with some yeasty malt and basement aroma. Taste of some orange, bready malt, slight bitterness and fairly sweet. It’s kind of strange tasting.

2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Aroma of straw, corn, hay etc. Pours a nice golden color which is pretty much the best thing about this beer. Taste is incredibly one noted - corn. Some minor lemon notes mostly as an aftertaste. I?m assuming this would be great to quench your thirst in East Africa where it?s +50° and you need to run away from lions; however I live in Northern Canada where the coldest day this winter was -59°. We need our beer a little stronger, darker, and more robust up here so we can fight off polar bears and go ice fishing with our bare hands.

2.2 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Gave a 5 on appearance cause it looks so beautiful after a long day in Juba... Standard lager. Quenches the thirst and gives you a smile. Yards better than a Hieni....

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Can. Yellow with white head. Aroma of yeast, grain and limes. Flavour is sweet with notes of bread and honey. Finishes with a light bitterness. While the beer itself is below average, the design of the can is one of my all time favourites. I’ve never given extra points for bottle or can designs, but this gets an extra 0.1 for looking awesome.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Bottle from the Hogs Back Brewery Shop. Pours golden with a quickly fading white head. Not a lot to report. This is a typically bland pale lager. There’s a little amlt flavour and a hint of sweetness. A least it’s not over carbonated.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
pint bottle shared. poured a bright light yellow color with white fluffy head. plenty of carbonation. aroma sweet malt and lots of corn. one of the group said it smelled like flat grape soda. but the corn overpowers everything. the flavor is sweet malt and corn. mild flavor and well you know...corn. pale lager yes it is but that’s about all its worth.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Clear gold with a fluffy white head. Aroma and taste are super heavy on corn backed up by some random fruity notes. Typical pale lager mouthfeel. Wouldn't be a terrible entry for the style if it wasn't so heavy handed on the corn.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Aroma - mostly a little light caramel in the aroma, not much more
Appearance - body color is a pale yellow; liquid is clear with some nucleation happening; the white head setup is about a 1/4" and then settles into a thin film of bubbles and a white halo; and a little dappled lacing
Taste - the beer is more on the sweet side with a Cracker Jack like sweetness and a corny quality as well
Palate - body is light; texture is thin; carbonation is soft; the finish is clean and abrupt
