0.7 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 2/20
UPDATED: NOV 14, 2012 Bottle. Pours murky water. Nose/taste of wet towel, gunk you’d find at the bottom of a stove, fly paper and spent grain. Light body. Extremely unpleasant.
Drunk in Niamey. Pleasant refreshing lager style beer drunk from 33cl bottle.
---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone sebletitje (10094) - Enghien, BELGIUM - DEC 10, 2016
50cl bouteille in Niamey. 4.5% avec au visu une bouteille qui a déjà bien vécu.
Dorée, col blanc crémeux moyen.
Arôme reste très basique avec de fines effluves de malt pils et un retrait houblonné assez modéré voire absent. Retrouve un nez de grains concassés.
Palais est léger pas mal d’amertume surtout au niveau du grains qui donne ce côté léger métallique.
Le caractère est limité mais se porte bien pour ce type de bière dans l’environnement nigérien. Fini est sec restant axé sur du pils.
Reste correcte si ce n’est un poil trop légère, ce qui ici, diminue encore son caractère. Drjohnrock (805) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - DEC 6, 2015
Bottle shared by shrubber85 (thanks) at Cincinnati RateBeer tasting on September 26, 2015. Quite pale yellow hue, aroma that’s barely there and slightly unpleasant, unimpressive sweet taste. Still better than Corona and it was nice to get a rating from Nigeria. Patrickctenchi (6627) - Cox’s Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - OCT 11, 2015
Bottle: (from the mysterious depths of Shrubber85’s cellar)
Clear gold with a small white head.
Sweet, corn and grain scent....basically the same taste....honestly, not too oxidized or bready considering the age and origin....
Slightly buttery, more-than-slightly grainy.
Country tick #85! alexsdad06 (10482) - West Chester, Ohio, USA - OCT 10, 2015
Bottle shared by shrubber85. Pours a clear yellow color with a thin off white film. The aroma and flavor have sweet, grainy malt, sweet corn, some mineral character, nothing really bad other than what it is, nice new country tick though which earns some additional points to the overall score.

Bottle. Poured clear pale color with an average frothy white head that was mostly lasting with fair lacing. Moderate lager malt aroma. Light to medium body with a smooth texture and soft carbonation. Light sweet flavor with a light sweet finish of short duration. Worth having once. phaleslu (10329) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 28, 2015
Bottle shared by shrubber85 - thanks again, Roger! I didn’t see a measurement on it, looks like about 500 ml. Pours a clear, pale gold with a small white head. Corny and sweet malt nose, like a malt liquor. Mineral, mild spice, straw, cracker. Light-bodied, with medium carbonation and a sharp, dry, grainy mouthfeel. This was nothing special but not bad at all, either. And it’s a country rating I never expected to get. JStax (6913) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - SEP 27, 2015
Bottle shared by patrickctenchi. Very pale yellow with no head. The aroma has some butter and toast. Sweet and buttery. Lighter body. Medium carbonation. drsordr (2736) - Loveland, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2015
Bottle shared at Cincinnati tasting pour light yellow with thin white head. Nose light tart, crystal malt, hint of funk. Taste light sweet malt. Not much else. Fairly typical pale lager, but surprisingly nothing skunky. DrSilverworm (9671) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 26, 2015
@ phaleslu’s cinci tasting. Thanks to shrubber for sharing. 48cl brown glass bottle, he says it’s been in his fridge for about 4 years... "Not much worse than it was when it was fresh", he says. Clear golden color, with some particles in the body. Thin white head. A very strong overly-toasted popcorn aroma in the nose. Not bad flavor. Popcorn is more mild, still very toasty. Pretty dry taste, but not too dry. Moderate bitter. Lighter body. Kind of soft, crisp lighter to moderate carbonation, Not bad, but not great. Interesting and fun to try. Would be cool to try again fresh.
