2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Not bad; I was expecting a really crappy lager. It’s light, has some hops bitterness with a tinge of skunk, and there’s also some sort of fruity note as well.

1.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 1/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 4/20
Read in a beer book that this was interesting due to a lemony note to the taste. Bad book. Bad beer. Probably good if you’re baking under the hot sun in the wilds of Kenya and on the verge of dehydrating.

This was average, but for the price of it I should’ve gotten a lot more, it was just like a budweiser and way too pricey. It went down fine but I won’t get it again didn’t impress me at all.

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

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
Bottle at Pier 32. Poured a medium size white head, fair lacing, carbonated, transparent, and a yellow hue. Mild malt and hoppy aroma. Bland, boring malty thin flavor. Mouthfeel was slightly tingly. Light bodied beer. Unimpressive.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Straw color carbonated body topped with a decent and lasting foamy head. Weak malty/hoppy aroma with some floral hints. Boring watery/malty taste with a short bitter final. Smooth and refreshing, but not a graet beer. I like the label and the "Beer only" bottle.

1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 5/20
This bottled brew marked best before 4/04 from the Pier 32 restaurant in Hamilton, IN poured a very large sized head of foamy fine to medium sized white colored bubbles that left behind a poor lacing. It was interesting to note that the medium sized bubbles soon go away leaving a very foamy long lasting finely sized white colored head that disappeared quickly after a few minutes. The body contained soft carbonation, was transparent and straw yellow in color. Its aroma contained notes of mild malty dough. Its mouth feel is smooth and malty with a lingering flat palate and a mild citrus malty aftertaste. Its flavor was overriddingly malty.

1.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Light nose, but slightly farty; yellow color and a foamy head. Off, odd vegtable graininess. No bitter. Creamy, oily mouthfeel. All around pretty bad.
