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.

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.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
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.

Thick body, bit of a grassy aftertaste - fairly clean, better than the regular export Tusker - dry and nicely bitter.

2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
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!
