duff (5484) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - SEP 3, 2003
Wasn't expecting much. Thin, light, some light dry grassy hops, boring and bland, but easy to drink, generally inofensive.

joeycapps (1468) - Waterdown, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 28, 2003
Light yellow. Fizzy white head. Grainy aroma w/ some DMS. Light body. Relatively bland flavour of sweet, grainy malt w/ a touch of hop in the finish.

loweredsixth (946) - Clovis, California, USA - AUG 24, 2003
Pale yellow color with a large rocky bright white head. The aroma was, like everyone else says, very grassy...like a field of tall grass. Also in the aroma were some sweet sugary tones. The flavor was a little blander than the aroma with a slight hops bitterness in the aftertaste. Mildly watery feel. Not that bad.

mds (2205) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - AUG 23, 2003
I wasn't expecting much, but I was pleastantly surprised after tasting this beer. It's okay. short lasting white foamy head. Very dry, light flavour.

Ernest (6181) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - AUG 22, 2003
Head is initially average sized, frothy, white, mostly diminishing. Body is clear light yellow. Aroma is lightly malty (cereal, grain), trace hops (herbs). Flavor is moderately sweet, lightly acidic. Finish is lightly sweet, lightly acidic, lightly bitter. Light to medium body, watery texture, lively carbonation.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2003
Had on site in Kenya, but not nearly as good as the premium version. A light beer with negligible hop presence and too much sugar to be a balanced beer. Reminds me of our Ausie beers which generally is not a good thing.

Doesn't taste BAD necessarily, it just doesn't TASTE. I was sampling this by a fire, in the virtual dark, and I could still see right through it. I thought it was a Sprite. Kenya's entry into the specialty water arena.

McWhite (108) - Sinking Spring, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 8, 2003
Bottle (in Tanzania, so possibly fresher?) Orange color with a sweet, yet slightly metallic smell. Watery, smooth and slightly grassy taste. Not too bad given the selection of beers I came across in Tanzania, but I'd rather have a Safari Lager. Side note: the label I have from Tanzania lists it as brewed in Tanzania, and brewed in east africa since 1923. What's funny is it also says "Its famous refreshing taste and finest quality has earned Tusker over 16 gold medals in the International Monde Selection beer awards."

SilkTork (5187) - Rochester, Kent, United Kingdom, Kent, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2003
Bottle. This beer commemorates the memory of the owner of Kenya Brewery, George Hurst, who died in 1923, the year after he founded the company. It is called Tusker because he was killed by a charging elephant during a hunt. Refreshing enough.
