3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Poured into a pint glass. Clear, straw color with a half finger of white head that held pretty well for this style. Good lacing.
Smells like corn husks and cotton candy.
Watery taste, mildest bitterness, ends a little sweet.
Crisp texture, light body, moderate carbonation. Fits the bill style-wise.
Maybe I haven’t had an adjunct lager in awhile but this was a decent drink. No off-flavors or bad smell.

2.2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color lager with a small pure white foamy head. Aroma of adjunct is not present as opposed to most beers from this brewery. Taste is quite bland with light cereal notes and a semi-sweet finish. Body is thin with good carbonation. This is another bland offering form this brewery though it is superior to the original.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Billed as 100% malt brewed. All this means is that they haven’t added cornstarch like they do with regular Tusker. 12oz bottle pours a totally clear, very faint yellow with a foamy head that fades fast. Nose is vaguely sweet, a little grass, some faint yeast, a little honey, white bread. Flavor is fine, lightly sweet but not sugary, some light bread, some light yeast. Fairly straight forward. Watery finish. I like that this doesn’t have an artificial sweetness to it, but that said, there’s isn’t alot happening anyway.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprise present from my dad. I saw that it was a Kenyan lager and I almost didn’t even want to try it. Being the ticker that I am, I gave it a shot, and this is exactly why we don’t judge a beer by its location...Appearance nothing to note...Aroma is light and sweet, corn, but you’d expect tons of skunk and none is present...The aroma is light and sweet, not at all a typical lager. This isn’t a great beer but it exceeds expectations for a lager and a Kenyan beer.

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 6/20
330 ml bottle in Kenya. Color is a very light yellow with good carbonation and a light head. Aroma is a light sweet malt scent with a hint of skunk which is most likely from being in a green bottle.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’s got a common taste, like most of these types of lagers.

UPDATED: FEB 17, 2015 This was much better than I thought it would be. Much better than the regular Tusker as well. A little bit of sweetness. Serving: Bottle

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

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
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.
