2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: OCT 30, 2013 Aroma is a sweeter Miller Lite. Pour is boring - almost no head and it dissipates immediately. Flavor is watery with a slightly Hoppy finish.

This was my go to beer while deployed in the Horn of Africa, rating from memory. Appearance is clear yellow with fine head. Aroma is malty. Taste is malty. This really hit the spot when we got off base and had it served up ice cold in 115+ degree environment. Does itís job in a hot region of the world which is to quench thirst and give a little buzz too.

Better than expected as this actually has some flavour. A bit bready on the finish, but as I was expecting this to be elephant piss overall gave it a better overall mark than it probably deserves.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle, 500 ml. Poured into a stemmed glass at home. ABV 4.2%. New country tick, first African country.
Pours a bright golden yellow beer, with a small, froathy white head on top. Low retention, light lacing on the glass.
Aroma of sweet malts, grains,
Taste is quite malty and very sweet. Not much else here, except maybe some dirty grains.
Thin body, okay carbonation and a nice dryness on the palate.
Overall noyhing to write home about but itís quite drinkable and went well with my spicy dinner.

2.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 oz bottle into a pint glass.
A: Pours a light straw color. The head is a frothy one finger white shade. Both retention and lacing are surprisingly good, given what it is.
S: Not much of anything here. A touch of non-offensive cereal grains, and maybe some crackery malt to go along with it.
T: Starts with lime esters, and finishes with some cereal grain. This is very simple - to a fault, definitely - yet I can still find a modicum of enjoyment to this. Which is more than I can say about many macro lagers.
M: Really light and crisp, as it should be. Both sweetness and carbonation is high, but not overdone, making this a good hot weather drink.
O: Not very interesting, to be sure, but as far as macro lagers go, this one is actually kind of good. Import prices kill any chance of me buying this again in íMerica, though.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Iíve just been looking through my photos and saw a photo of this beer which I took in an ideal setting overlooking Kilifi Creak, Kenya. An average lager tasting of sweetcorn and sugar cane. Very fizzy leading to bloat and therefore not possible to drink more than 3 in any one session and always ice cold otherwise not very palatable.

Light, refreshing. Pours a decent head, not too big, which dissipates reasonably quickly. Not particularly bitter but a pleasant flavour. on e of my preferred everyday beers.
