UPDATED: FEB 17, 2007 The aroma has multi-grain, herbal hops, cooked vegetables, and maybe a little citrus. The appearance is light pale gold with a medium sized, sea foam looking, head. It also looks poorly carbonated but does not feel so in the mouth. The flavor is sweet but not overly so, it has a nice twist of lemon taste but also has a vegetable stew quality. The palate is watery. There is a slight taste of corn chips in the finish. Overall it was better than I was expecting but hardly a good beer.

I always like the look of a good lager. My first beer from Africa and I was mildly impressed. Golden colour with a high amount of carbonation. Light tasting, slightly grainy and very little aftertaste. Overall not a bad beer, but not really something that stoodout as a quality lager. Haven’t decided if I would have it again.

UPDATED: APR 18, 2009 500 mL bottle: Very typical of tropical/pale/sweet lager style but disappointing. Almost a lemon or very mild fruit taste, but very watery. Sweetens slightly as it warms but not much. Better served very cold. Goes down light but too watery for my liking. Too thin a body for even a pale lager. Absolutely no finish to speak of. Try Tiger or Carib or Kalyani or Castle for better example of style. Better yet, grab a Svytury’s Ekstra.

I really havent had too many beers but for what i have tried this is my favorite. The taste is perfectly round and not too harsh on any extreme. The hint of lemon is a great addition as well. One of the most thirst quenching beers i have ever tasted.

Yeah, I have a beer from Kenya. Piss gold with lots of carbonation that forms a fizzy white head. Sweet corn aroma and flavor. Semi dry finish. Blah.

very light color, thin head, I’m sure it wil be very refreshing in the hot savannah in kenya, but it would be not smart to drink bier on that spot with all the wild animals,. here in holland with 33 celsius its refreshing but most: very boring with less taste.

Light yellow colour, with a white foam. Aroma of malt and chocolate feeling in the nose.Mild hopynes in the end. Watery taste, thin body, short finish. Disapointing.

Robe blonde très pâle transparente surmontée d’une mousse blanche épaisse qui persiste. Arômes inexistants. Saveurs de métal et de céréales. Houblon de soutien. Comme de l’eau!

To start with the bottle was slightly out of date and of course spent prob the majority of its life in non-ideal conditions. Half liter bottle poured with minimial white quickly dissipating head to a pale straw color. No detectable hop aroma and some vegetal, staling aromas discerned. Taste is watery with the stale vegetal taste. Might have been refreshing if it were fresh. If I can get a hold of another fresher example I’ll re-rate.

Light gold body with a large white head that diminishes quickly. Bland aroma of corn and light malts. Fair taste and body, some minimal hops and malts are evident. Clean ending, though that should be expected from a beer that’s mostly waterl.
