AntonyWilson (114) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 17, 2016
330ml bottle: Pours a clear golden with persistent white head. Strange aroma of wet blanket with a slight fruitiness. Fruity taste with some breadiness. Bitterness is quite nice. Overall just another lager.

From the notes I wrote down some years ago: Clear yellow colour,, no head and no lace. Aroma is just herbs. Watery body. No taste, is just water with herbs.

hauxe (378) - Butzbach, GERMANY - MAR 27, 2016
Rated from old notes. At long last a beer from Zimbabwe. Somewhat metallic and one dimensional. Light bodied with a watery finish. The label talks more about Victoria Falls than the beer - take the clue.

mikeyo1 (657) - Linköping, SWEDEN - JAN 22, 2016
Can @ home. Courtesy of Jon. Pours a clear yellow liquid with a medium white head that quickly dissipates, no lacing. Sweet malty and corn aroma with fruit esters, glue and hints of grass. Light bodied, somewhat sweet with a dry, sticky cardboard and slightly sour finish. Lingering cereal. Flavors of malt, corn, cereal, creepy chemical and metal like fruit esters.

At Victoria Falls with Jason. Golden body with slight head. Metal notes. Grainy and a tad sweet. Okay.

deyholla (9993) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - MAR 7, 2015
Can thanks to Caleb! Pours a clear pale yellow with a white head that dissipates to the edges slowly. Aroma has light grain and corn with a hint of hay. Flavor has lots of hay and some sweet grains and a bit of corn.

Abrakarl (417) - SWEDEN - DEC 20, 2014
Basically on level with Bohlingers and Golden Pilsener but slightly stronger. Malty and decent beer when warm and in a country that has little to offer.

bbertels (333) - NORWAY - NOV 15, 2014
Bottle in Melville pub, Johannesburg. Some grain in the aroma, light body and head. Plesant hints of malt in the taste -- but quite a weak body and dry, cardbaordy aftertaste. OK but not much more.

Bottle @ Darkness Day eve, thanks to Caleb for sharing. Pours a fairly clear yellow appearance with a white head. A little bit of metallic notes along with some corn and light candy. Drinkable but not great.
