Light gold. Smells like strong lager, lightly grassy like Tusker but with more alcohol. Lightly alcoholic but doesn’t taste 7% and it has just a vague maltiness. OK strongish lager.

Bottle and Draught. I drank this stuff regularly while living in Vanuatu while serving in the Peace Corps - I’ve tried it hot (on an outer island), room temp (at hotels), and cold (at a bar) - its rough stuff in any state. It basically the same as the lager just with more alcohol added by amping up the dextrose and not adjusting the grain bill. This is what you get in a country with a government controlled brewing monopoly.

1.9 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2012 From tap (March 2012). Pale golden colour with moderate carbonation. Flavour mid-range - not too bland, not too hops driven. Smooth on mouth. Nothing much to differentiate itself from Tusker’s Lager, except it’s 7% alcohol.
