Not bad, not great. Malt hop balance wasnt bad, but everything else was just a tad below an average beer. Neat to have one from Africa, but other than that, this isnt worth seeking out at import prices. Refreshing light beer with more flavor than American swill.

Pours a water gold with a white head. Dissapates to a malty corn nose, stagnent water type of deal. Taste is essentially the same with a little bit of black pepper emerging later. They should hop this thing up and then send it on over.

biz82 (1327) - austin, Texas, USA - MAY 12, 2006
LIghtly hazy pale yellow with a nice foamy white head. Worrisome little particles in suspension. Malty sweet with some tartness in the aroma. Fairly nice malty flavor with some honey notes. Has a bit of sourness with a metallic finish. Perhaps not well kept between here and Kenya.

MoritzF (9652) - Ottobrunn, GERMANY - MAY 12, 2006
(bottle) Clear pale golden colour with a short white foam. Moderately sweet grainy malty and slightly papery aroma. Very light bodied with crispy to fizzy carbonation. Malty, not too sweet taste, minimal hoppy and grassy, slightly bitter and adjuncty finish. Might be quaffable in Kenya.

Dorqui (2220) - Brescia, ITALY - MAY 9, 2006
UPDATED: SEP 13, 2007 Bought at Borough Market (London).
Compact but not much long-lasting head. Yellow pale color, rather bubbly and limpid one. Lean and decidedly light scent; grass, straw and cereals notes. Medium prickly taste, little alcoholic and with a modest bitter. Little pleasant body, much gaunt and above all on the end.

beaconstreet (811) - Washington DC, USA - MAY 7, 2006
Delicous, for some reason this tasted like a porter to me, at least in the body (I never took it out of the bottle). Meaty and rich tasting. SAIS final happy hour, 2006. Well done year of international beer, good student governmenters.

bottle

Pours a decent golden yellow, with a nice frothy head. Aroma is sweet with hints of honey. Flavor is a bit buttery with sour undertones. Palate is watery. Overall, this was much better than I expected. Crisp, light, and refreshing. Id drink this again.

Beerdedone (3359) - Croydon, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 25, 2006
UPDATED: APR 26, 2006 Bottle sampled with Stegosaurus. Pours yellow with a one finger thick white head. Aroma of straw, and sweet malts. Flavor is sweet, almost none, watery body, bad brew.

shrubber85 (11088) - Greenville, Indiana, USA - APR 23, 2006
Bottle. Wet newspaper aroma. Golden yellow with small head. Sour malt and wet newspaper flavor - changes to a light lemon flavor as it warms. Cant give a good rating to a beer thats primarily aroma/taste is newspaper.

Pours golden with a big foamy white head, slight aroma of bananas, perfectly drinkable with a slight metallic taste. Good for a hot day.
