eduardovl (865) - SWITZERLAND - OCT 14, 2014
500ml bottle served in a pilsen glass. A: Pours an absolutely clear pale yellow color forming a medium fluffy and bubbled white head. Medium retention and lots of lacings left in the glass S: Strong sweet malts in the nose. Very bready and biscuity. Notes of adjunct malts, mainly rice. Light notes of flowery hops T: Follows the nose. Strong notes of sweet malts. Quite biscuity and crispy. Again, some notes of adjunct malts. Light hops bitterness in the end M: Very light body and medium carbonation. Crispy malty aftertaste O: Drinkable and not that bad for an Adjunct Lager [ BA Review @ 5/9/2014 ]

Aniela (2412) - Göteborg, SWEDEN - SEP 22, 2014
Bottle at Simba, Gothenburg. Clear golden beer with a offwhite head. I think they forgot the malt in this beer, Feels sweetish and I guess somewhere there is hops but I didn´t find them.....

ordybill (101) - Douglasville, Georgia, USA - SEP 6, 2014
Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. This beer was purchased at a liquor store in Smyrna, GA. This is by far the best African beer I have had to date. My son drank this pretty regularly while overseas and he always told me that I should try it. He was right, nice flavor, palate and taste.

goochflies (50) - Kaiserstuhl, SWITZERLAND - JUN 2, 2014
Bottle in Juba, South Sudan. Im not a big Lager fan but when there is not much else this beer will do the trick. Slightly malty, grassy hops nose. White head, golden and clear. Slightly more bitterness and maltyness that sets this apart from Tusker original. Worth a try

johnnnniee (2340) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from Andover Liquors Pour a crystal clear golden straw color with a decent sized tightly bubbled white head that dissipates quickly to a faint cap on top. Aromas of sweet grainy honey like pilsner malt and a faint floral hop. I’m a bit surprised that the aroma is so damn inviting. The flavor is lightly sweet and honey like with some faint earthy spicy hop to balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and slick sugary water mouthfeel. Very nice example of a pale lager, I could see some of these on a warm summer day.

harrymel (1503) - Spokane, Washington, USA - DEC 21, 2013
Blind #8- 12oz bottle A: Light straw ale with brilliant clarity, when held to my pc screen, pretty sure the pixels are amplified for visual assessment. Single finger of white foam falls quickly to a sheet of the same with a central cap. the Collar hugs the glass, but doesn’t keep around - no lacing. (3) S: Grain, minerals. Reminds me of a Picpoul wine. Very French/mineral and chemical smells. Hints of banana and yeast. Wouldn’t call this complex. (2) T: Watered down vitamin water with carbonation. When I say vitamin water, I’m talking a One-A-Day pill, crushed and mixed into a solute, then carbonated. Hint of butter. (2) M: light and still sticky - seems to stick to my palate and dries it to an extent. Highly carbonated. (2) O: Not really feeling this beer. (2) Guess: lager of some kind. Cheap. Reveal: Tusker lager from Kenya. Not surprised. Serving type: bottle 05-29-2011

tderoeck (4861) - Gent, BELGIUM - NOV 19, 2013
14/X/13 - 33cl bottle @ home - BB: VII/2013, bottled: I/2013 (2013-960) Thanks to Nise666 for the trade!

Clear pale yellow beer, irregular white small head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of grains, hay, cow fodder, pretty sweet, malty. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: grains, little bit of sweet malts, bitter, herbal touch. Aftertaste: grains, little bitter. Not the worse Africa beer I’ve had.
