AxeMaster221 (343) - Portland, Oregon, USA - JUL 14, 2003
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.

Maits (158) - ESTONIA - SEP 2, 2016
Clear golden beer with little white head. Aroma is very light sour and metallic. Taste consists a little herbs and aftertaste is light bitter. Overall drinkable pale lager but nothing spectacular.

onceblind (7322) - Denver, Colorado, USA - AUG 29, 2016
Clear pale golden with a thin rocky white cap. Light stickiness. Thin crackery and fresh baked bread on the aroma. Crisp light flavor that’s clean and bright, though near flavorless, and a light crackery tone. Fine and clean, but flavorless and bland.

PietS (165) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2016
A nice pilsener. Taste is a bit grassy and malty. A little bit of bitterness. Not a great beer, but a good choice in East-Africa.

JStax (5222) - Devola/Marietta, Ohio, USA - AUG 21, 2016
Bottle poured into a footed pilsner glass. The beer is a clear gold aith a white head of foam. Good retention. The arom has a bit of corn and dried grass. Some subtle spice comes through as well. Mildly sweet. High carbonation, spritzy mouthfeel, light body.

Bardzo kiepski lager. To chyba wszystko co da się o tym piwie napisać.

gyllenbock (7777) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 9, 2016
Bottle at Internationales Berliner Bierfestival 2016. (my first one from Kenya) Clear light golden with a white head. Aroma of grass, bread and light spices. Similar taste. Sweet and light. Almost no bitterness in this one.

BeerRenter76 (831) - 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 (810) - 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.

ozzy70 (795) - Omaha, Nebraska, USA - JUL 6, 2016
Bottle purchased in Kansas City. Poured clear straw, white head. Aroma was grassy, malts. Taste was medium sweet, grainy.

YantarCoast (946) - 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.
