jtclockwork (17467) - , New Jersey, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle shared at tasting at my house. Pours gold. Nose of smoked barley and smoked pond water. Taste is dirty guano filled water, cooked vegetables that have been sitting around for awhile. Light body.

Bouteille 33cl à Niamey. Une des nombreuses version Flag brassée en Afrique, d’ailleurs probablement toutes les mêmes.
Dore, col blanc.
Arôme est assez basique, malt pils pâle avec un nez plus malté grains que la BraNiger.
Palais est léger avec un aspect très noble niveau des malts qui restent dans un style pils avec un petite côté cara plus marqué mais restant très minimaliste. Certaine douceur reste bien marquée en fin de bouche avec un léger apport de grains et petite sécheresse. Houblon reste dans sa plus simple description conférant juste la balance d’amertume sans apport niveau gout.
Rien de spécial, il y a bien pire, mais sur place au Niger je préfère la Niger ou la Guinness brassée au Togo.

Bottle. Gold with a thin head. Weird sweetish notes, cardboard, creamed corn, and stagnant water. If James keeps getting this shit you bet your ass I’m gonna keep on drinking it. Why? Because I am a sick, sick individual.

Bottle at a tasting at James’s place. Pours a clear gold, no head. Smells like dead caramel. Medium bodied, tastes of garbage water. One of the most vile things I’ve tried to consume. But sadly, not the worst. Lingering vegetal smokiness. Really horrible.

jredmond (8770) - New York, New York, USA - DEC 9, 2012
Bottle at Clockwork’s Dec 8th, 2012 tasting. Pours a clear orange amber body with no head. Aroma is maple syrup and sweet barley. Mouthfeel is thin and watery with no taste whatsoever.

Botte. From the German RateBeer gathering Spring 2011 in Idar Oberstein courtesy of Bierkrug. Sour barley malt aroma. Golden yellow color with nice head. Sweet barley malt and light hops flavor. Not horrible - would be okay if stuck in Niger.

Bottle at the first Idar-Oberstein/Germany RateBeer tasting at Wasaba, sourtesy of Bierkrug, thanks! Same appearance as most other African lagers. Aroma of slightly sour citrus. Taste is plain and bitter.

330 ml bottle in Niger. Pours a very pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma is sweet papaer and some malt comming through. Taste is a weak and watery with some sweet malt coming through as well. Palate is very weak but not offensive. I found this beer better than the Togo version.
