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To start with the bottle was slightly out of date and of course spent prob the majority of its life in non-ideal conditions.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.

1.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

Light fruit on the nose. Pours freakishly clear with a white head that is gone ... now. Mouthfeel is thin and flavour is insipid and a bit carboardy, although there is a tiny bit of mild fruit in there that adds something, but not much at all. Disappointing.

Not bad, not great. Malt hop balance wasn’t bad, but everything else was just a tad below an average beer. Neat to have one from Africa, but other than that, this isn’t worth seeking out at import prices. Refreshing light beer with more flavor than American swill.

Pours a water gold with a white head. Dissapates to a malty corn nose, stagnent water type of deal. Taste is essentially the same with a little bit of black pepper emerging later. They should hop this thing up and then send it on over.

LIghtly hazy pale yellow with a nice foamy white head. Worrisome little particles in suspension. Malty sweet with some tartness in the aroma. Fairly nice malty flavor with some honey notes. Has a bit of sourness with a metallic finish. Perhaps not well kept between here and Kenya.

(bottle) Clear pale golden colour with a short white foam. Moderately sweet grainy malty and slightly papery aroma. Very light bodied with crispy to fizzy carbonation. Malty, not too sweet taste, minimal hoppy and grassy, slightly bitter and adjuncty finish. Might be quaffable in Kenya.

UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bought at Borough Market (London).
Compact but not much long-lasting head. Yellow pale color, rather bubbly and limpid one. Lean and decidedly light scent; grass, straw and cereals notes. Medium prickly taste, little alcoholic and with a modest bitter. Little pleasant body, much gaunt and above all on the end.
