gold, soapy white head. Nose is grainy and metal. Thin flavor, light paper and metal. Decent carbonation, easy drinking, quite bland.

Clear straw pour with a small white head. Caramel malt, crystal malts, and metallic adjunct. Light palate with ample carbonation and a sweet clean finish. Not bad for the style, actually.

Rather clean nose, light dough and honey. Taste is light and thin, some light gold fruit, a touch of hay and bread. Watery texture.

Bottle shared by Nimbleprop. Pours clear gold with a light, fizzy white head, light lacing. Aroma is grain and meal malt, light corn, light hops. Flavor is grain and meal malt, light hops and a dry finish. Low body and warmth, medium carbonation.

330mL thanks to nimbleprop. The pour is clear straw with suddy, temporary white head. Spotty white lace. Nose at first is skunky and odd but moves to sweet candy and honey. Taste is inoffensive, light, medium honey. Mildy suddy but no soap and no fusel or off character. Not bad at all. I really the palate on this one: clean, refeshing, no off character. Good stuff.

What does a beer rater due when stuck in Uganda for two months? Search out obscure beers of course. This one is not too bad. 33cl bottle pours a burn gold or honey color with a thin, creamy white head. Nose is mostly bread, a little light toast, some light honey, a touch grassy. The flavor starts with a sweet maltiness, but that fermented corn flavor kicks in and ruins the party. Itís mostly sweet, even the finish is a tad slick, with just a touch of diluted orange zest. It wonít be the next beer craze, but in Kampala, this isnít that bad.
