BeerBiker (1414) - Odense, - JUN 20, 2011
Bottle @ BeerBiker/Scheffel’s 100 countries celebration week (long time ago) Surprise, surprise. Not that bad a beer from Africa. Notes of caramel, hay, clear straw and it could be good for meat balls in Nairobi or Zanzibar!

BeerRenter76 (719) - 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 (758) - 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 (872) - 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 it’s a new country tick.

johnnnniee (3656) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - JUN 13, 2016
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. I’m 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 (2663) - Split, CROATIA - JUN 10, 2016
Jan. ’16. 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...

nybol (1364) - DENMARK - JUN 4, 2016
Normalt vil jeg forvente en øl fra Afrika, er lys lagerøl, med lidt humlesmag, lidt tynd i eftersmagen, meget læskende en varm dag. Tja, det er faktisk også sådan denne øl er. Ikke lige min favorit katalogi, men den holder stilen rigtig fint.

A friend brought me this from Kenya. Very pale gold with a small white head. Light grain aroma and flavors. Not the worst I’ve had.

trapped (2116) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle @ Peculier Pub. Clear pale yellow with very small frothy white head, faint malt aroma, medium carbonation, little malt taste, almost no hops, watery body, abrupt finish. This could only be a substitute for water under the fierce African sun!
