metal, corny aroma. Metal kind of overwhelming and this was from a bottle. At jiko in animal kingdom lodge at disney. Pale golden. Metallic malt flavor. Ridiculously light and watery. Fail.

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 (3736) - 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 (5170) - 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 (1336) - 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

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 (378) - 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.
