Oakes (13903) - Vancouver, British Columbia, - MAY 21, 2013
Pale gold. Grassy hop aroma, with a delicate spiciness. The hop doesn’t show up much on the palate (or even the nose unless it’s really fresh). It’s a fairly thin beer, light with vague hop and a little grainy sourness in the finish. Uneventful, serviceable lager.

gyllenbock (6285) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - AUG 16, 2014
Bottle at Erakor Island Resort, Vanuatu, August 2014. Clear light golden with a white head. Very thin and boring with cardboard, bread and some boiled vegetables. Actually really awful.

mkel07 (4514) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - JUN 1, 2014
On tap at bar in Port Vila. Rating from January 2014. Very underwhelming for the national beer of Vanuatu. Pale straw colour, big white head, grassy aroma.

Extremely thin pale lager, nothing really to it. Had at a bar in Vila, it was cold and refreshing. Did the job.

KeefOz (1217) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - MAY 15, 2012
UPDATED: MAY 24, 2012 Pale golden colour. Moderate carbonation. "Mid" range flavour - not too bland, not too hoppy. An "average" lager. (tasted when there in March 2012).

Absolutely loved this beer. Aroma is not the best but the taste is amazing. I drank this beer the whole time I was in Vanuatu and loved it

The thing that is missing from the Islands is a light, drinkable in hot weather beer. Something like a Thai or Singaporean beer. Very light, but not on taste. This thing tries to be too many things and ends up not being anything. And for god’s sake, do not drink it from a glass or the plastic glass they give you in the hotels-tastes like a toilet! But there’s something about drinking a local beer that gives it a redeemable quality! Tusker will still have a special place in heart after my time in Port Vila.
