It’s an average beer. What’s awesome about it is the fact that comes from an exotic place...

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - AUG 31, 2009
Bottle at a restaurant in Nairobi. Has a sweet scent of hops and sugar, a little alcohol and some maltiness. Looks like any other light lager, nothing special there. Has a refreshing taste of hops, and though quite watery, has a dry finish. It’s a decent lager but not exciting by any stretch.

blankboy (6052) - 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 (6108) - 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 (3836) - 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!

RSRIZZO (1853) - 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.
