Scopey (8007) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - FEB 1, 2015
Bottle at the Cotteridge Convention thanks to SarkyNortherner. It pours clear gold with a small white head. The nose is muted, watery, paper, grainy and sweet dough. The taste is crisp, paper, light graininess, sweet dough and cereal with a short finish. Lightish body and fine carbonation. Mmmm paper... Pretty basic.

Leighton (12964) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 25, 2015
Bottle shared at the Cotteridge Convention 2014. Thanks, Sarky. Pours perfectly clear gold with a creamy white head. The nose holds paper and straw. Light-medium sweet flavor with more paper, light dough, cereal, straw. Light in body with average carbonation. Dry and papery on the finish with some faint bitter hay. Not awesome.

16oz can brought to me by wife after spending a month in Kenya. I meant to share this at a RB tasting to give everybody a hard to get country tick, but then I saw bottles at Whole Foods down the street. Oh well, this can is the real deal, straight from Kenya and aged 6 additional months (though still a year before its best by date). Pours clear gold with frothy white head. Some lacing. Bad creamed corn, metal, honey. Sweet taste. Light bitter finish. Lasting leafy earthiness. Overall: not great. Not undrinkable, but also not fun to drink. Nope. Not undrinkable, but also not really much of anything.

16 Oz can pour split, thanks to Chris. Hooray for international beer ratings. Pours a clear gold color with a grassy hay aroma. Super light in flavor with a hint of apple and some grassy flavor. Not a whole lot going on here. Not much flavor to talk about. Drinks easy nonetheless. Hooray also for football beers. Glad I tried this.

TXBadger (1701) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JAN 4, 2015
Pours a clear golden color with white head. Cereal grains on the nose; follows onto the palate. Some sweetness on the palate as well. Finishes with a typical lager finish, lightly sweet.

mybrainhurts (370) - North Dakota, USA - JAN 3, 2015
Sweet grains and corn aroma. Pale malts, grains, and a clean taste. Bland, fleeting finish. Refreshing actually.
