This was the second beer that I had at Boma. It was either this or Tusker, which I know that I can get at home, so Casablanca it is. They also had a bunch of African wines to try, but I pretty much stuck with beer.

ABV: 5%

Style: Euro Pale Lager

Trivia: According to wikipedia.com, “Beer production in Morocco was introduced by the French in the 20th century. Currently, Société des Brasseries du Maroc oversees the production and distribution. Popular beers include Spéciale Flag (pilsner) and Stork (light lager). Their premium beer is Casablanca (also a lager), which costs more than the other two. Casablanca is served in the Morocco pavilion at Epcot in Disney World, Orlando, FL, and is popular with beer drinkers eager to try a beer from an Islamic country that allows secular vices alongside the virtues of the predominant faith. The breweries are located in Fes, Tangier, and Casablanca, a bottling unit exists in Marrakech.”

Random: Half of the plane from the movie, “Casablanca” is in the Jungle Cruise ride.

As soon as this one poured, it looked exactly like a macro. It poured with a one finger, white head that dissipated quickly and left no lacing on the glass. The body was more like a golden-yellow color with low to moderate carbonation visible. The nose was way too light with a hint of metal. The taste wasn’t as bad as the last one. I got some bitterness, corn and then the slightly unpleasant metal notes. The body was on the lighter side with high carbonation. The finish was quick and unremarkable. I wish I could find more to say about this one, but it was seriously boring and underflavored. Only get this one for the novelty of it, then switch to something better.
