yngwie (13216) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2007
Bottle. (as Malt Lager) Clear, a bit pale golden pour, with a white head. Malty aroma with some butterscotch and a fruity hint. Butterscotch and fruit notes in the flavor. Medium to thin body, and a relatively bitter finish. Decent but boring, thin, but not bad. (070625)

JoeMcPhee (8314) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - FEB 24, 2007
A random gift from my wife’s co-worker’s recent trip to Kenya. Pale golden, pillowy white head. Fairly fresh pale malt aroma, grassy/floral hop aroma as well. Sweet grassiness, straw and hay. Light sweet pale malt flavour with a moderate bitterness and a soft creamy texture. Decent enough brew. Nice and refreshing.

faroeviking (10293) - FAROE ISLANDS - NOV 16, 2006
Quite a while ago I had this beer and so far the only beer from Kenya I´ve tasted. Bottle. Quite light straw colour. Malty aroma. Fresh neutral flavour with a bit crisp bitterish aftertaste.

Papsoe (25089) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JAN 14, 2006
(Bottle 30 cl) Comes as "Tusker Malt Lager". Nice fully golden colour, fair off-white but dissipating head. Floral, hoppy aroma. Flavour is dominated by sweet malt - quite straight and pleasant. A very decent brew. Thanks for this Dorte - greatly appreciated. 140106

garthicus (2658) - Dublin, IRELAND - DEC 30, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 29, 2007 An excellent brew, of all the East African beers, this is the best IMHO. mild aftertaste, nice smell, hard to get outside Africa.. (well, hard to get in Ireland) one of my favorite beers.

monty (39) - Dallas, Texas, USA - JUN 25, 2005
Tusker Malt Lager. 25 June 2005. Bottle. Fizzy white head that just vanishes. Very pale yellow. Smells of corn (maize?) a little, something grassy and, in a weird way, slightly of green beans. Tastes a little better than it smells, but is kind of plasticky. Head to head with other Ugandans (mine says it’s "Brewed by Uganda Breweries, Ltd.") I think it’s better than Bell, but comes in behind Nile Special.

highlandlad (1413) - Blue Mountains, AUSTRALIA - APR 19, 2005
A minor oasis in the beer desert that is Africa. Straw colour, short head that at least showed some length. If it’s fresh, the aroma is the best thing about it - vanilla notes and citric hops. Thin bodied and quenching. Dominated by malt to the extent that there’s no real finish. Bland but inoffensive. (Bottle)

SpringsLicker (3121) - Tennessee, USA - JAN 3, 2004
Heineken like, watery. There is some sour hops in there too. Friends who travelled Africa extensively in the 70's told me that refridgerated beverages were scarce there (Africa) at that time. This must be drunk ice cold or it might be offensive. I'm trying to be creative without saying Elephant Piss.
