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 (1750) - 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.

McGarnigle (574) - Rochester, New York, USA - DEC 31, 2014
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.

jjsint (1183) - Ely, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - DEC 31, 2014
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.

rjplumer (596) - Foxboro, Massachusetts, USA - DEC 28, 2014
Sweet corn aroma. Soap bubbly head that does linger awhile. Crystal clear pale yellow body. Some sweet taste with dry flat finish.

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. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

DYCSoccer17 (3446) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 27, 2014
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.

Padron4KM (619) - Chandler, Arizona, USA - NOV 23, 2014
12 oz bottle.
Clear pale yellow. Any paler and it would be the color of tap-water. Fluffy white head, decent lace.
Aroma is sweet malts, biscuit, grass.
Flavor is sweet, sugar, maybe some rice, and a mild hop finish.
