Pale straw yellow, quite decent white head. Malty, slight citric nose with some grassyness. Thin mouthfeel, extremely light bodied. Refreshing though. Malty flavour as well, some notes of earth. Some cooked vegetables in finish.

As my Kenyan colleagues would say: "my country, my beer!" If this was the beer that one associates with Kenyan identity, I would be ashamed to admit I"m from Kenya. Let’s just hope the country is better than the beer, which is without any character.

This beer tastes like dirt! Really, dirt. I looked at the bottle and it was bottled in Kenya--that means they’re probably using Kenyan water. With dirt in it. Really, I’m surprised I didn’t get cholera from drinking this. I immediately regretted my decision to order this, but I finished it, cursing Kenya Breweries all the way for putting this in a 16oz bottle. This is the worst beer I have ever had, on account of the dirt flavor. It might have been decent otherwise.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
Not bad, middle-of-the-road. Pale gold, bready aroma predominates. Malt-dominated palate, a little too sweet. Better when served ice cold.

Another example of one that probably would taste really awesome in it’s home country- perhaps while os a safarii to hunt elephabts for their ivory.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 500ml bottle: Poured a very pale yellow color lager with nice foamy with head with better retention then expected. Aroma of malt and hops are very faint and almost non-existent. Taste is refreshing with some malt and very little hops. The surprising thing about this one is that it is not skunk even though is traveled 5000 miles in a light brown bottle.
Re-rate late 2011 drank fresh at the source (Kenya): Not bad but still too sweet for my taste. Corn can still be felt.
