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.

A friend brought me this from Kenya. Very pale gold with a small white head. Light grain aroma and flavors. Not the worst I’ve had.

trapped (2025) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 26, 2016
Bottle @ Peculier Pub. Clear pale yellow with very small frothy white head, faint malt aroma, medium carbonation, little malt taste, almost no hops, watery body, abrupt finish. This could only be a substitute for water under the fierce African sun!

beerme31 (623) - Holly Springs, North Carolina, USA - MAY 25, 2016
Bottle. Light golden color and medium white head. Mild aroma of hay, grass, and malt. Light sweet taste. Light body, mild hop presence. Decent lager overall.

Terminus (3541) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - MAY 23, 2016
Bottle-purchased at one of the "clubs" while on this deployment Pours very pale yellow hue with a small fizzy white head. Nose of grains, oxidization, malt husks, corn, cereal, and other adjuncts. Flavors are pretty oxidized as well. Mushy grains, lots of cereal. I have definitely had better wild lagers than this. I don’t even think this would be that much better fresh. WIth that said, I now have Kenya off my list.

minutemat (3744) - Shrewsbury, Shropshire, ENGLAND - MAY 22, 2016
500ml bottle @ JDW Montgomery’s Tower, Shrewsbury. Bought purely and simply because it was a new country tick, despite seeing this in the fridge here many many times and not giving it much thought. Pours clear gold, white head. Aroma is musty malt, straw. Taste is an initial pale malt lager character but with distinct, offputting oxidised wet cardboard notes coming through which makes it incredibly difficult to finish. So I left it.

BuckeyeBoy (5241) - Boise, Idaho, USA - MAY 5, 2016
12oz bottle picked up at Belmont Portland. Pours out a crisp clear pale straw topped with a white head. nose is cream of corn grassy hops and some wheat. Taste is more of the corn and light sweetness and some spice. I have had worse.

radio_nowhere (1346) - Maryland, USA - MAY 1, 2016
Bottle into pils glass, clear straw yellow color with white head. Aroma notes of pale malt sweetness, kind of a honey-like note and faint grass. Taste adds some grain and hay. Light body, moderate-heavy carbonation, crisp with clean finish. A sweeter than average pale lager.

mzaar (2600) - 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
