BeerBiker (1412) - 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!

lesifflebiere (1207) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - JUL 21, 2014
Énormes bulles dans un liquide doré pâle, au nez en sucres et en maïs, avec un brin de moufette. Très mince et incroyablement limpide. La bouche est sucrée comme prévu, mais relativement sèche, avec un sensation d’eau minérale en finale. C’est une bière prévisible de la première à la dernière seconde, sans personnalité ni originalité, mais elle réussit tout de même son très modeste but, désaltérer l’assoiffé adéquatement.

Canmoore (242) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Pours a very clear straw colour, with a small bubbly head. Aroma includes notes of apple, apricot, and grass. Tasting notes include apple, light malt, and a very clean finish. There is almost no hop presence in the palate which is very watery. This beer is a very bland, watery beer. Would not drink this again.

Jayseppi (154) - Ontario, CANADA - JUL 19, 2014
Pale gold lager with bread dough and corn aromas. Sweet taste and very light bodied. Not worth revisiting.

Really sub par beer. Lacking in flavor but the best option in animal kingdom. Would never seek out.

generallee08 (614) - New York, USA - JUN 28, 2014
The body very light and has a very pale straw color with very good clarity. Its head is bright white in color and made of a loose foam which light and quickly fades out. Light grain and clean wet straw notes are just noticeable in the modest light nose. As expected the body was light and thin with a very clean bready/cracker like pale malt. Hops added pale straw like flavor, balanced bitterness and a crisp finish. Underneath is just the very slightest hint of a white grape skin flavor note.

Not a great beer, but after a hot day on safari, it was nice and refreshing.

Pale golden pour with a small white head. Watery grain aromas. Flavor is watery malt. Not offensive, but nothing special either.

UPDATED: JUL 8, 2014 Clear yellow pour with a nice 2 finger head. Aroma of sweet grass. A nice malty flavor with the faintest bit of bitterness. Overall it is an OK beer.

Beer from Kenya? Hmm...sweet, let’s do this. Reviewed from notes. This was poured into a pilsener glass. The appearance was a nice looking clear yellow color with a one finger white foamy head that dissipated within less than a minute. There was some light lacing that slid into the beer. The smell was basically a decent sweet corn. The taste was mainly sweet corn. On the palate, it sat about a light and was pretty sessionable. There was an extremely smooth carbonation about this. Overall, good pale lager worthy of having again.
