Slightly off aroma, though the exp date was August 03, very pale light lager, with a white head that died quickly. Rather flavorless, and watery palate. Ok, I've had a beer from Kenya, so done that, dont have to do it again.

Yorker (1673) - Herning, DENMARK - AUG 27, 2015
50 cl bottle @ home. Pours clear golden yellow with a white head that leaves quite a bit of lacing. Aroma and flavour are grains, malt, and hops - with a slightly bitter finish.

Pours clear golden. Aroma is malty, sweetcorn. Taste is watery, malt, sweetcorn. A light beer, but not very tasty..

Can 33cl. present from my colleague Thirza, thank you! Clear golden color, large frothy white head, mostly diminishing, fair lacing; grainy nose, bit corn, light dough, grass; taste light medium sweet and bitter, grainy; medium body, oily texture, soft carbonation, aftertaste light bittersweet, bit metallic; fresh lager, not bad.

Alengrin (3401) - BELGIUM - AUG 8, 2015
Kenya’s national standard lager, referring to the African elephant. From a 50 cl bottle, with slight gushing upon opening - must be the first time I experience this in a filtered lager. Creamy, medium sized, off-white head leaving some lacing, crowning a pure and clear golden beer with steady fizz. Sweetish, grainy aroma of dry cookies, white bread dough, soaked corn, wet cloth, iron, something vaguely plastic-like and a grassy hop touch without actually smelling of hops. Grainy, straightforward flavour, soft but finely stinging carbo, sweetish and sourish grains with a slick, lightly oily mouthfeel, corny sweetishness, metallic, with persisting grain sweetishness in the finish adorned with a light grassy hop touch, very lightly bittering but otherwise rather thin and a bit watery, as usual in this style. Another boring and industrial pale lager, but admittedly very drinkable, more so than I expected.

smaynard6000 (806) - Apopka, Florida, USA - JUL 31, 2015
12oz bottle. Pours a pale yellow color with small off-white head. Grainy, sweet aroma. Sweetness is pervasive throughout, along the lines of a malt liquor. Mediocre.

By far the best african beer I’ve tried. Taste almost like a german lager/pils. A blessing for thirsty backpackers!

Interesting. It was the first African beer that I’ve tasted. I would like to try another.

R4N5H (369) - SINGAPORE - JUN 24, 2015
Shared a 50cl bottle at Paddy’s Martens Inn, Leicester on 16/06/2015. Clear pale golden colour with a medium sized white head which dissipated quickly. Aroma of malt and straw. Medium carbonation, light body. Flavour of grain, malt - slightly sweet. Pretty boring, but drinkable.

rougeau13 (2215) - Richmond, Texas, USA - JUN 17, 2015
Bottle at jambo house Disney world. Frothy whitehead. Plenty of lacing. Pale yellowish and clear. Smells and tastes of grain and semi-sweet cornflakes. There is a detectable amount of hops, just barely. Light bodied and pretty dry. Not good but not rotten.
