Bottle shared at August THT. Pale yellow, thin white head. Grains, corn, low bitterness. PietS (265) - Bergen op Zoom, NETHERLANDS - AUG 25, 2016
A sweet malty beer with a bit of bitterness. I prefer this slightly above the regular Tusker, but it is still nothing special (but a good choice in East-Africa). car13many (249) - POLAND - AUG 19, 2016
Chyba najlepsze z piw dostępnych w Kenii, ale nadal bardzo kiepskie. Ma przynajmniej wyczywualny słodowy smak i aromat. Erzengel (8702) - Wuppertal, GERMANY - JUN 8, 2016
50cl can from Nakumatt supermarket, Kigali / Rwanda 🇷🇼. Smooth grainy beginning. Easy to drink with grainy hints, malty body with a smooth and malty grainy aftertaste. Not much bitterness, round and easy to drink with not much aftertaste. olsvammel (7220) - Örebro, SWEDEN - FEB 20, 2016
Bottle at a restaurant in Nairobi. Light metallic smell with some light bread. Similar taste, artificial. A bit rough, actually mpre rough and unclean then normal Tusker.

Super pale beer. Taste and aroma are similarly pale. Overly carbonated for the total lack of character. hawthorne00 (3941) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 14, 2015
Bottle. Gold with an inch of white head. Grain, some honey, paper and hints of spices. Sweet and a bit biscuit flabby without much bitterness. Seems a bit tired. Poor. zvikar (6149) - Ramat Gan, ISRAEL - AUG 1, 2015
Bottle sample at a tasting at Stas’s place. Thanks Alexey. As Tusker Malt Lager. Pours pale yellow with a small head, aroma of caramel, grain, bread, flavor of caramel, grain and bread, light bodied. Pyobon (1398) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUN 20, 2015
(Bottle) Clear straw with transient white head. Aroma is cardboard with hints of grass and toffee. Light body and lively fizzy in a coarse but exciting way. Taste is better than aroma suggests. There’s some pleasant toffee / candy sweetness under a nice fresh tangy flavour. It’s a little odd but quite well balanced. By the mid palate there some biscuity malt and some fairly pleasant hints of crisp bitterness in finish. I expect this would go down well in a hot dry climate. It’s not great but it’s drinkable.

12 oz bottle, poured into a mug at ~40 degrees F.
Appearance: Pours a clear straw gold, and forms a large, billowy head of thick white foam with good retention. Lacing was quite noticeable.
Smell: Biscuit malt forms the bulk of the smell, though oddly sweet, with an almost honey-like note to the sweetness. Grassiness is also present, with something vaguely rootlike.
Taste: Again, biscuity malt with that honey sweetness, like eating a biscuit that has honey drizzled over it. Grassy notes abound throughout the tasting process as well, alongside a presence best described as pollen. It’s a simple taste profile, though not a bad one.
Mouthfeel: Light, lively, and drinkable.
Overall: Not a bad lager. Not the greatest lager ever brewed, but the honey-sweetness adds a bit of interest that I haven’t run across often with pale lagers.
