blankboy (5971) - Toronto, Ontario, CANADA - JUN 9, 2008
Bottle (300ml) shared with HogTownHarry -- courtesy of garthicus. Pours a clear pale gold with an average size diminishing white head. Aroma of grassy hops (saaz?), sweet pale malt and corn. Flavour follows the aroma, is a bit watery and has a light bitter finish. Average bodied. Not bad, if I were somewhere with a poor selection of Lagers and this were available I’d choose it.

HogTownHarry (6063) - Toronto (Harbourfront), Ontario, CANADA - JUN 4, 2008
Bottle (300ml). Shared by garthicus with blankboy. Slightly cloudy gold pour, small white head (3-). Sweet aroma, oil grain, pungent grassy hops. Taste - same, dry, crisp, bitter finish. Thick body, bit of a grassy aftertaste - fairly clean, better than the regular export Tusker - dry and nicely bitter.

IrishBoy (3805) - Bakersfield, California, USA - NOV 27, 2007
12 oz bottle from Kenya courtesy of Garthicus! Thanks Al! MFG 23 Aug 07; Nose of grassy grainwith slightly sweet malt notes; translucent gold with a medium white head; flavor has sweet maltiness mixed with a light to medium bit of hop bitterness that fades in and out, but is definately present. Interesting beer! Not bad for a pale lager. Actually some hops, unlike the BMC pale lagers!

Grovlam (4152) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - OCT 12, 2007
Bottle. [Courtesy of yespr, tasting @ yespr] Small fizzy white head that mostly diminished. Spare lacework. Clear flat looking body with a pale yellow colour. Cardboard, grass, grain. Hint of fruit. Light bodied with a light dry texture and a soft carbonation. Light sweet and bitter flavour. Light dry and bitter finish.

RSRIZZO (1852) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - OCT 7, 2007
Had this beer on 5/31/2000. Aroma is a light sweet malt scent with a hint of skunk which is most likely from being in a green bottle. Color is a very light yellow with good carbonation and a light head. Taste is sweet and malty. Starting with medium body that goes down with creamy feel. The finish is a sweet malt flavor backed by a light bitterness. It got a common taste, like most Imported lagers.

ChainGangGuy (4351) - Marietta, Georgia, USA - OCT 4, 2007
Lovingly brought back for consumption by my friend and yours, Ando, on his return from Africa, the Dark Continent. Appearance: Pours clear, yellow body with a thin, thin ring of bubbles. Smell: Aroma of maize and pale malts. Distinct skunk character. Hint of grassiness. Which, being from Africa, would make it a savannah landscape grassiness. Taste: Pale maltiness with a bit of sweetness. Light grassiness. An even lighter bitterness. A mild hint of sweetness perks up again on the finish. Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied. Medium carbonation. Somewhat creamy mouthfeel. Drinkability: Bless Ando for sacrificing his time and hard-earned monies to ship himself to Africa for the sake of bringing back beer. He should win a Nobel prize! Or something.

aracauna (3050) - Georgia, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Pours a richer gold than the regular Tusker. Still very little head. After the skunkiness dissipates, there’s actually a little hop bitterness to this one. A bit corny, but not really bad.

CaptainCougar (7129) - Columbia, Maryland, USA - SEP 29, 2007
Bottle: Pours a clear pale golden with a thin ring of white bubbles. Aroma is slightly skunked with some pale malty grain and earthy noble hops. Body starts fuller than I expected with mild sweetness and some grainy earthy notes toward a crisp finish. A pretty decent pale lager.

I had this in Nairobi, so I am sure that it was much fresher than one would find it outside of Kenya. Standard lager character until you get to the flavor. Extremely robust and full. So hearty and even that I was shocked as I drank it. If only the beer could find it’s way to the U.S. and still be this good.
