garthicus (2670) - 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.

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 (1416) - 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 (3133) - 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.

dhurtubise (568) - Hamilton, Ontario, CANADA - JUL 2, 2003
A really bad all malt beer. Sweet and not enough hops. I expected alot more from a beer that states it is made with only hops, malt water and yeast..

Slick (1969) - Thief River Falls, Minnesota, USA - JUN 25, 2003
Nice pale golden color.Small white head that had a decent staying power.malty,hoppy sweet aroma.Malty taste with a medium sweetness and very mild hop taste.i know this is some old brew even if it say's drink before april of '03 it lacks quite a bit IMO The taste isn't as terrible as some others i've had today but it isn't great eather.There is that same metallic taste with a medicinal hint and the after taste is malty with no hops present.It's worth the try but not worth drinking it in volume.vVery forgettable IMO.

Sully (1377) - Potts Point, New South Wales, AUSTRALIA - MAY 5, 2003
When there is nothing better available this will do. It is reasonably malty but it lacks the balance of the hops. When consumed fresh, ie in Kenya, it is OK.

CapFlu (4522) - Victoria, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2002
This beer looks more watery than it is. As per their commercial description, does anyone want their thirst subdued? Go drink Gatorade if you want to be quenched; I want something of flavour and cheer.

007lund (92) - Ann Arbor, USA - AUG 14, 2002
It’s a good thing an elephant is on the bottle, because this beer smells like the zoo. A very pale urinish color with a very light body. Tastes very earthy. I took three sips and then dumped the rest out.
