RSRIZZO (1855) - 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 (4391) - 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 (3094) - 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 (7132) - 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.

RblWthACoz (964) - Brooklyn, New York, USA - SEP 8, 2007
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.

yngwie (13693) - 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 (8510) - 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 (10289) - 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.
