2.4 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 8/20
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.

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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.

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)

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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
(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
