1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 3/20
My first African beer and was not the most pleasant I’m sorry to say. It poured a light yellow, a lot of carbonation, with a white head that was fully diminishing. The aroma almost smelled like apple juice, or at least that is what it reminded me of. It had a little sweetness to the smell, but was all in all a bit confusing. A slight bitterness in the beginning flavor wise, a more or less malty end. The aftertaste was really non-existent and I guess would serve it’s purpose in East Africa. It was quite watery and with a very light body. I’m glad to check this beer off my list, it was nice, but just not for me.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Clear golden beer with little white head. Aroma is very light sour and metallic. Taste consists a little herbs and aftertaste is light bitter. Overall drinkable pale lager but nothing spectacular.

2.3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Clear pale golden with a thin rocky white cap. Light stickiness. Thin crackery and fresh baked bread on the aroma. Crisp light flavor that’s clean and bright, though near flavorless, and a light crackery tone. Fine and clean, but flavorless and bland.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
A nice pilsener. Taste is a bit grassy and malty. A little bit of bitterness. Not a great beer, but a good choice in East-Africa.

Bottle poured into a footed pilsner glass. The beer is a clear gold aith a white head of foam. Good retention. The arom has a bit of corn and dried grass. Some subtle spice comes through as well. Mildly sweet. High carbonation, spritzy mouthfeel, light body.

Bardzo kiepski lager. To chyba wszystko co da się o tym piwie napisać.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Originally rated on 10/1/08. Aroma is slightly sweet corn, and a little malt. It pours a pale yellow body with good carbonation, and a thin white cap that leaves decent lace. Average mouthfeel, flavor of grain and a very slight metallic taste emerges as it warms. Overall an average beer, I drank it fast when it was very cold and it was o.k.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
0.355 l bottle from World Beer Museum store, Tokyo Skytree, Tokyo. Pale clear, nice head. Well, well, taste is better than I expected. Not the usual tropical adjunct lager, but almost like Czech lager. Taste has malts and hops nicely balanced. No wonder this is the most popular beer in Kenya.

1.7 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 6/20
500ml bottle from Beers of Europe. Pours pale yellow with a medium rocky white head that bubbles down to a small lasting head. Aroma is sweet grain, cereal, dusty hops. Taste is sugar sweet and watery. Finish is tangy rather than bitter. Really bland lager that reminds me of some of the cheapest Russian lagers. At least it’s a new country tick.
