Poured from a 12 OZ bottle into a pint glass. This beer was purchased at a liquor store in Smyrna, GA. This is by far the best African beer I have had to date. My son drank this pretty regularly while overseas and he always told me that I should try it. He was right, nice flavor, palate and taste. apotekhin (79) - ISRAEL - AUG 4, 2014

Bottle in Juba, South Sudan. Im not a big Lager fan but when there is not much else this beer will do the trick. Slightly malty, grassy hops nose. White head, golden and clear. Slightly more bitterness and maltyness that sets this apart from Tusker original. Worth a try johnnnniee (4285) - Bedford, New Hampshire, USA - MAR 9, 2014
Bottle from Andover Liquors
Pour a crystal clear golden straw color with a decent sized tightly bubbled white head that dissipates quickly to a faint cap on top. Aromas of sweet grainy honey like pilsner malt and a faint floral hop. I’m a bit surprised that the aroma is so damn inviting. The flavor is lightly sweet and honey like with some faint earthy spicy hop to balance. Medium body with a moderate level of carbonation and slick sugary water mouthfeel. Very nice example of a pale lager, I could see some of these on a warm summer day.

Blind #8- 12oz bottle
A: Light straw ale with brilliant clarity, when held to my pc screen, pretty sure the pixels are amplified for visual assessment. Single finger of white foam falls quickly to a sheet of the same with a central cap. the Collar hugs the glass, but doesn’t keep around - no lacing. (3)
S: Grain, minerals. Reminds me of a Picpoul wine. Very French/mineral and chemical smells. Hints of banana and yeast. Wouldn’t call this complex. (2)
T: Watered down vitamin water with carbonation. When I say vitamin water, I’m talking a One-A-Day pill, crushed and mixed into a solute, then carbonated. Hint of butter. (2)
M: light and still sticky - seems to stick to my palate and dries it to an extent. Highly carbonated. (2)
O: Not really feeling this beer. (2)
Guess: lager of some kind. Cheap.
Reveal: Tusker lager from Kenya.

Clear pale yellow beer, irregular white small head, unstable, non adhesive. Aroma: lots of grains, hay, cow fodder, pretty sweet, malty. MF: ok carbon, light body. Taste: grains, little bit of sweet malts, bitter, herbal touch. Aftertaste: grains, little bitter. Not the worse Africa beer I’ve had.
Clear golden colour, white head. Aroma of malts, grains, quite sweet, barn, hay. Sweet malty flavour, hint of bitterness. Watery body, finish grains, malts. Decent. Feels rather like a somewhat classic German lager, but it‘s not quite my cup of tea.
