My first African beer and was not the most pleasant Iím 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 itís purpose in East Africa. It was quite watery and with a very light body. Iím glad to check this beer off my list, it was nice, but just not for me.

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.

gyllenbock (7555) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle at Internationales Berliner Bierfestival 2016. (my first one from Kenya) Clear light golden with a white head. Aroma of grass, bread and light spices. Similar taste. Sweet and light. Almost no bitterness in this one.

BeerRenter76 (725) - Texas, USA - JUL 15, 2016
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.

thellgren (784) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 11, 2016
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.

YantarCoast (908) - Moscow, RUSSIA - JUN 30, 2016
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 itís a new country tick.

Bottle from Andover Liquors Pour a crystal clear golden straw color with a decent sized tightly bubbled white head that dissipates quickly to a faint cap on top. Aromas of sweet grainy honey like pilsner malt and a faint floral hop. Iím a bit surprised that the aroma is so damn inviting. The flavor is lightly sweet and honey like with some faint earthy spicy hop to balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and slick sugary water mouthfeel. Very nice example of a pale lager, I could see some of these on a warm summer day.

heavy (2739) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 10, 2016
Jan. í16. A 0.5 l bottle from Prosi Exotic supermarket. It poured a yellow body with small head. Stinky corn and grainy aroma. No corn listed? Flavor was lightly sweet, hay, lots of it. A bit of cucumbers, too. Thin to medium bodied with moderately long sweetish grainy/eggy finish. Not extremely bad, just an average pale lager with weird notes. Well...
