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.

Clean , golden color . Big white head . Simple but good lager. Malty , crispy , refreshing . Not watery although it light. Probably it's what you would need and like in African climate.

Cerveja queniana agradável. Melhor do que a média das cervejas comerciais. Tem aroma muito bom e um bom gosto. É uma cerveja leve, parecida com as mexicanas, sendo levemente mais encorpada.

500 ml bottle - White froth on a golden body, little carbonation which gives it a smooth crisp taste. Smooth malty taste with a nice palate.

BeerBunker (840) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - APR 28, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma is of malt and some kind of chemical. Taste is of malt, wheat, and what I think might be old shoes. Has a lingering bitter taste. This beer is not good, and I obviously only rated it to say I’ve had a beer from Kenya.

YigSvartka (195) - Manitoba, CANADA - APR 14, 2015
Transparent pale yellow with a quickly dissipating white head. Relatively stunted aroma consisting of metallic cereal and perhaps some honey. Genuinely the lightest and least flavourful beer I have ever encountered. The body is barely present and although a mild amount of cereal malt taste is present, it subsides immediately with a meager hop finish. Despite the lack of flavour and aroma, it certainly isn’t repulsive. Likely rather enjoyable on a hot day in Kenya.

kajser27 (187) - Zagreb, CROATIA - MAR 31, 2015
Pale yellow colored, small white head. Aroma of some malts, grain. Taste is rather thin on malts and corn, some hay, some sourness, almost no bitterness. Thin, watery body. Wow, couldn’t imagine choosing Primus over another beer but there it is!
