Cornfield (5570) - Oak Forest, Illinois, USA - DEC 19, 2004
Better than Iíd expected, especially after seeing it pour out as a sickly pale yellow color with a large bubbled white head. The aroma is mildly sweet and a bit grainy. Itís got some decent, sustained carbonation. The taste, somewhat watery, but good balance between malt & hops. Clean crisp finish.

from bottle. i went from drinking an anchor porter to this, so there was a slight taste difference, to say the least. pours with a fair amount of head, clear inviting yellow color, clean and translucent. initial smells were muted and bland. the taste did not change much. this was similar to any generic industrial american beer, without all the scuzzy badness. it kind of tasted like africa.

Dorwart (2411) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - DEC 12, 2004
Large white fluffy head. Decent carbonation. Light malt, rice and corn aroma. Color is a medium gold. Flavor is light and clean. Fizzy in the mouth. Some vanilla which is nice. Soft mouthfeel. Finich is clean and smooth. Not as bad as I expected.

tiggmtl (4548) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 7, 2004
Herbal, lightly spicy hop nose is clean and refreshing. Clear golden colour with decent white head that recedes to thin cover and ring. Bland, watery and fairly flavourless. Vaguely sweet. Perhaps thirst-quenching on a hot day or after a spicy meal but not much for a tasting session. Bottle enjoyed with the ever-gracious muzzlehatch... Shucks Barry, thanks. I feel all warm and fuzzy inside.

muzzlehatch (4424) - Burlington, Vermont, USA - DEC 7, 2004
500 ml bottle provided by and shared with the ever-generous tiggmtl. Small herbal-hoppy nose...very light and clear...little flavor, bit of sweet honey-lemon, very clean (and un-skunked!) but dull and watery. The best Kenyan beer Iíve had yet!

desurfer (1244) - Melbourne, Florida, USA - NOV 25, 2004
Not bad; I was expecting a really crappy lager. Itís light, has some hops bitterness with a tinge of skunk, and thereís also some sort of fruity note as well.

YourDarkLord (1800) - Urbana, Illinois, USA - NOV 24, 2004
Read in a beer book that this was interesting due to a lemony note to the taste. Bad book. Bad beer. Probably good if youíre baking under the hot sun in the wilds of Kenya and on the verge of dehydrating.

crizay (1050) - Brook Park, Ohio, USA - NOV 11, 2004
This was average, but for the price of it I shouldíve gotten a lot more, it was just like a budweiser and way too pricey. It went down fine but I wonít get it again didnít impress me at all.

sethdude (704) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - NOV 4, 2004
Pours a pale gold color, decent tan head that quickly becomes rocky, fairly activ e carbonation. Aroma is sweet, light, and malty, very little hop presence. Flavor is pretty much the same as aroma, with a slight floral thing happening. Light and refreshing.

Pigfoot (2268) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - NOV 1, 2004
Big, blossoming, sturdy ,crackling head. Transparent, yellow hue. Aroma is fresh, floral, honeyish, zesty and uplifting. Taste is clean, light bodied, everything one expects from a decent lager. A bit like SingHa, actually. This must go down well in African heat, just as perfectly intelligent North American beer fans will quaff a Crud Light or Swiller Genuine Crap in the summertime.
