sinfull (1023) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - MAY 18, 2015
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.

Bottle at Abyssinia restaurant. Not bad. Smoky taste late. Grassy. Hard to evaluate through bottle. So-so.

bartzluke (218) - Oklahoma, USA - MAY 4, 2015
UPDATED: MAY 5, 2015 12 oz pour from refrigerated bottled into shaker pint. Little head, very clear, great carbonation, yellow. Nose grass, wheat. Subtle. Light bodied. Very thin. Crisp. Taste isn?t too much. A little wheat, a bit of light malts. Very straightforward. Very drinkable.

BeerBunker (863) - 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 (198) - 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.

HampshirePhil (209) - Portsmouth/London, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAY 3, 2015
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.

weihenweizen (2088) - Charleston Area, West Virginia, USA - MAY 31, 2015
Refrigerated 12 oz. brown bottle poured into a glass. Clear golden with small white head. Aroma is light grain, light body, low carbonation, and little lacing. Taste is light malt, some sweetness, and a little grain. Expected less.

scarpin (24) - BRAZIL - MAY 11, 2015
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.
