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.

I bought a single 355mL bottle from Everett's in South Beloit, IL for $1.99 in Summer 2011.

Pours a very light yellow color that is clear with a slight head. Very similar looking to Miller Lite. Scent has some slight grassy tones mixed with wheat. Taste is what you can expect from an adjunct lager. The taste reminds me a lot of Red Stripe and Red Dog. It does however have a little thicker texture and a quite crisp finish. I enjoyed trying a beer from a different country but this was a rather ordinary tasting beer.
