COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed in Kenya since 1922. Medium alcohol beer that is a favorite choice for many occasions.

Clear golden color. FIzzy white head. Mild malty aroma. Some hops, but hardly. Malty flavor. Smooth and crisp! Not too bad. Better than what I expected. Bought this 500mL bottle at Total Wine in Manassas, VA.

Tall snow white head on a pale yellow body. Some hops in the aroma and flavor but quite thin, just as expectet. Also a slight citrusy in the flavor. Not the worst lager I have tasted but definately not the best either.

I really enjoy beer, but it was hard to enjoy this one, very bland, boring beer, almost tasted like dirty water, I really wanted to like it, but it was bad! I want to try some different African beers!

This is definitely marathon watching beer. Basically what I expected when I read the label, slightly skunky, mild malt and hop lager, nothing special, borderline awful.

AceOfHearts (1375) - Mountain View, California, USA - JUN 5, 2004
Bottle. Allright, now I have Kenya. Hazy yellow, typical third-world country lager looking. Slightly skunky smell, Rolling Rock-esque canned corn taste. Sweet, malty, bland, mushy.

TheBeerGod (5168) - Newport News, Virginia, USA - JUN 3, 2004
Pours a hazed yellow with a medium frothy white head. Aroma seems it me a bit skunked and not much else. Maybe some light hint of corn flakes as it warms. The taste is essentially a slightly more bitter BMC. Some sweetened notes and more grain in the taste but a slight bit of bitterness is all that is found. Mouthfeel is a bit on the thin side and the finish semi-sweet. However, it went remarkably well with the smoked turkey and pepperjack sandwich I had with it. Well enough for me to not totally slam it. Also, this would be a nice "lawnmower" beer.

Indra (2593) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - JUN 1, 2004
Very faint aroma of sweetish cereal grain. Exceedingly pale yellow color, quite clear with an insubstantive head. Fairly bland crackery flavor, a tinge of sweetness on the finish. No bitterness or hop characteristics. Watery texture. Good for slaking thirst, perhaps.

freekyp (1473) - Thomasville, North Carolina, USA - MAY 29, 2004
Plae straw yellow with clinging white head. Lite grainy aroma. Malty lager with medium hop character. Has a dusty, cereal-like quality. Decent hop charactet emerges in finish. Lite, but drinkable with slight sweetness in finish.

envane (567) - Chicago, Illinois, USA - MAY 20, 2004
Well within the drink by date on the label, but still tastes way off. Horrible rotting cabbage aroma. Tatse is malty but sour, with a metallic, astrigent finish. Dunno bout this one.

Again, another staple beer from Africa. Not quite as fizzy as Zambezi. If I had to choose of the 2, this would be my choice.
