Société des Brasserie du Maroc (Heineken), Casablanca, Morocco
Nice little lager with a little complexity and some noticeable hops bitterness along with grassy flavour notes that hang around like Peter Lorre in the movie of the same name. An above-average lager.
Where to drink it: On a late spring evening watching playoff hockey.
Pairing: With a shawarma or falafel, just to keep with the desert theme.
