Bottle received in Country tick trade with Tim, cheers! Country #161. Pours amber brown with a small bubbly off white head. Aroma of sweet malt, dark fruit, toffee, molasses and touch of chocolate. Toward heavy sweetness, light bitterness. Medium body, sticky texture, below average carbonation. Low expectations perhaps, but I liked this, certainly one of the betterAfrican beers I’ve had.

Bottle kindly shared by Rubin77 at a tasting in his flat. Rather neutral and mild. The little character it has is caramelly, with slight overlap to astringency. Drnks easy. Cuso (8616) - Bratislava, SLOVAK REPUBLIC - NOV 6, 2016

Alengrin (5255) - BELGIUM - MAY 17, 2015
Bottle from an African shop in the Matongé district in Brussels. Thick and frothy, yellowish white, coarse head, colour clear copper. Aroma of caramel, toasted bread, tea, iron, biscuit. Soft sweetish caramelly taste, ’malt fruitiness’, smooth and slick with medium carbo, bit minerally, somewhat metallic middle phase with toasted accent and a gentle, herbal and grassy hop bitterishness in the finish reinforcing the equally gentle toasted bitterishness. Much better than expected, actually. Lowenbrau (4142) - Asturias, SPAIN - DEC 31, 2014

In short: pretty decent vienna.
Pours quite clear amber with little off white head. Short head retention, poor lacing. Malty aromas, some caramel and herbal ones. Light to medium body, high carbonation, some crispy texture. Taste is quite malty, moderate bitterness, some caramel and nuts flavours. Was expecting much worse, this is a decent beer.
Dark in the glass with a white head. 65cl. The beer starts smooth, malty, watery. The mainpart is smooth, malty, fresh. highly drinkable. The aftertaste is slightly smooth, malty, fresh. Nice.
