It has an odd aroma to it almost like a sour musky smell. It is very pale yellow with virtually no head. It does have quite a bit of carbonation. The taste is nothing to write home about as the carbonation is too strong.

mzaar (2557) - Varberg, SWEDEN - APR 26, 2016
Flaska. Klar orange med ett stort vitt skum. Maltbaserad lager där det också ryms en gnutta frukt och socker i såväl smak som doft. Finns betydligt sämre lagers.

Meh. Had to do it. First - probably only ever - beer from Kenya. African Bud. No thanks. Maybe on an Africa hot day... ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Viper666 (3271) - Richelieu, Quebec, CANADA - MAR 6, 2016
Bouteille. Léger nez de grains de malt pâle et de maïs sucré avec des notes de houblon floral, de légumes cuits ainsi que des effluves métalliques. Mince-moyenne en bouche avec un pétillement moyen-élevé et une texture assez aqueuse. Goût très légèrement croustillant de malt pâle avec des notes de légumes bouillis et de très légères notes métalliques lors de l’entrée en bouche suivi d’un léger goût sucré de maïs et de papier mouillé puis en finale l’on retrouve un très léger goût amer de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses. Arrière-goût court, légèrement amer de houblon floral aux notes herbeuses et métalliques. [notes 2006]

Had it out of the bottle at the airport lounge at the end of safari. About what you would expect. Not bad but not good. Actually preferred the Serengeti beer a little better.

wombat23 (294) - Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Shared 12 oz. bottle. Pours a pale straw and very clear with a small white head. Aroma and taste of grass and light malts, with perhaps a bit of sour apple. Mild sweetness/bitterness. Clever name and logo.

darbeer75 (252) - Round Rock, Texas, USA - MAR 5, 2016
Aroma: faintly lager-like with fruity notes; Appearance: light straw, clear pour with very thin head that disappears quickly; Taste: slightly better than a domestic lager but mostly tasteless; Palate: light bodied with light, dry finish; Overall: not as bad as feared; but would not buy again.

gyhallmanti (178) - Groningen, NETHERLANDS - FEB 16, 2016
500cl bottle which my dad picked up on his trip to Kenya. pours a clear golden colour with a frothy white head. aroma of grass, malt, bread. taste is medium sweet and average to low bitter. notes of malts, grass, bit of citrus. texture is thin with lively carbonation. Not an interesting beer but definitely a thirst quencher on a hot summer’s day.

TEJA (2048) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - FEB 9, 2016
Sampled at SBWF 2015. Short and thinn light grey head. Honey aroma. Low to medium bitterness. A summer thirst quencher.
