DuffMan (8051) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - OCT 24, 2005
Not bad, middle-of-the-road. Pale gold, bready aroma predominates. Malt-dominated palate, a little too sweet. Better when served ice cold.

Golden yellow appearance. Dryish, reasonably refreshing and left no lacing.Inoffensive and bland.

Another example of one that probably would taste really awesome in it’s home country- perhaps while os a safarii to hunt elephabts for their ivory.

Boutip (5207) - Gatineau, Quebec, CANADA - OCT 11, 2005
UPDATED: JAN 23, 2012 500ml bottle: Poured a very pale yellow color lager with nice foamy with head with better retention then expected. Aroma of malt and hops are very faint and almost non-existent. Taste is refreshing with some malt and very little hops. The surprising thing about this one is that it is not skunk even though is traveled 5000 miles in a light brown bottle. Re-rate late 2011 drank fresh at the source (Kenya): Not bad but still too sweet for my taste. Corn can still be felt.

highlandlad (1434) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - SEP 26, 2005
This is now brewed under licence across the border by Tanzanian Breweries (SABMIller). Not sure if they have an exclusive contract but all the Tusker I saw in Kenya and Tanzania in Sep 2005 was brewed by Tanzanian Breweries. Surprising, as the brewers used to be arch rivals. Anyway, this is not a patch on the Tusker malt lager. It’s a typical sugary-corny African lager. Hello taste? Pale gold, thin head. Aroma of corn starch and sugar water. The palate is thin and fizzy. Flavourwise, it’s corn and sugar water, with a light metallic bite from TB’s piss-poor bittering hop.

shendrix (478) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - SEP 19, 2005
At fist sip I was a bit concerned...the bitterness of the hops seemed to threaten a coup. As I pushed throught the undergrowth I came into contact with the wisps of vanilla and touch of banana that gives this little lager its drinkability. Not wonderful, but far from bad.

joergen (23823) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - SEP 13, 2005
Bottled. Pale yellow coloured with a white head. Aroma of malts and grain with bitter notes. Flavour of malts and grain with notes of hops and butter.
