Format: a light green 330mL bottle with a pretty ordinary macro label.

Appearance: clear yellow in colour with chunky carbonation. A white head drops to and lasts at a thin film.

Aroma: quite weak on the nose - just some cheap lager grains. No adjuncts though, seems a bit more pure.

Taste: more standard grains. Not a great beer but it never set out to be - just a cheap macro lager for drinking on the beach.

Aftertaste: drops away pretty quickly, good for more drinking.

Mouth feel: light in body with a higher carbonation. About right.

Overall: a good beer whilst on a very hot beach. Better than your usual cheap as chips macro lagers, that's for sure. Not brilliant, but it never set out to be.

Tickers gotta tick Kenya! Pours clear light yellow and makes Coors Light look like an imperial stout. No head. Smells like sweet honey and malt. Super light mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet honey and hay, clean finish. High carbonation. Honestly this isn’t bad for a summer session beer. Easy drinking, sweet flavor. Take this over any US macro.

Poured from the bottle, it was a gift from my friend.

A- Crystal clear golden/straw, with a half finger white bubbly head. Retains quite well and has some good lacing.

S- Pale malt, light biscuit backbone, with a crisp hop nose.

T- Light maltiness with a very well balanced hop character.

M- Light, clean, and just a little fizzy.

O- It is a mass produced lager, but I would take it over Bud any day. It doesn't have the stale shitty taste you get from American Lagers.
