The beer exits the 12-ounce bottle a light gold color with a creamy white head that crowns the body, as it erodes; the lace forms a thin sheet upon the glass. Nose has a sweet malt aroma, almost maple syrup; crisp and clean, start has a fair malt presence, thin at the top, which was expected. Finish has a pedestrian acidity, the hops mild but present, dry aftertaste, a fair to middling beer, a product of its environment, certainly better than many beers from such countries.

Appearance- Clear golden color. Had a decent head about inch thick.

Smell- Hops with some malts and maybe hint of fruits.

Taste- Very crisp and dry.

Mouthfeel- Medium body with medium carbonation.

Drinkability- It was okay. I don't know why but I expected a little bit more from it.

I really liked the fact that they still re-use the bottles. Not crush, melt and make a new bottle like in the US. I didn't find this a very flavorful beer but what flavor it did have was nice. It is a decent beer for those hot summer nights. I wouldn't bother trying to save a lot of luggage space to bring some back, maybe a bottle or two.

Pale golden appearance with lots of bubbly head that quickly disappears. Smell is grassy and malty, but nothing significant.

Has a sweet malty taste with a hint of corn and grain. Slightly bitter and creamy, but overall, the taste is light. Light bodied with moderate carbonation. After taste is almost non-existent, but a bit dry.

When compared to other beers, it's a mediocre adjunct lager, but not bad for a lighter beer and refreshing. Worth it just to try a beer from Kenya.
