2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

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.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sweet grains and corn aroma. Pale malts, grains, and a clean taste. Bland, fleeting finish. Refreshing actually.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
This is a pretty decent lager. Nice clear yellow, good head. There’s slight hop bite to it. Not as bland as Bud, Coors and the like. Best drunk very cold.

2.2 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle from Lambert’s, Bedford. Light sunshiny yellow. Chemical and grain aroma. Taste is bitter/sour, with corn, Lemsip and industrial cleaner flavours. Bitter/salty aftertaste. Odd but certainly not a classic.

1.8 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Color is pretty pale (agree with some of the rating that says a little less color and it looks like (light golden) water. Has a rice aftertaste. No "kick" at all. After it sits a while looses almost all of its taste. Not good at all from my point of view.

2.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
12 ounce bottle purchased at BevMo Natomas. The aroma is sweet with some corn hints and a little bit of apple, too. A little honey-like nose is present. Transparent pale yellow body with a small, quickly dissipating white head. Starts with almost an astringent flavor. Very prickly on the tongue. Some corny malts come through in the middle before there is a finish of more apple cider character. Surprisingly bitter finish.
