Most people don't know that there is another "Tusker" besides the Nigerian one. This lager is brewed in the tiny South Pacific nation of Vanuatu, and for all intents and purposes is the one of the only beers in the country (a few Aussie imports and other uncommon offerings by Vanuatu brewing aside).

I rate this beer by taking into account something which if often overlooked in beer reviews...geography and climate. This beer is brewed in the sweltering heat and is meant to be enjoyed in it.

Appearance: Looks like a typical BMC. Very pale.

Smell: Not too much here. A bit grassy and a touch of Heineken-esque skunk.

Taste: Again, nothing to write home about. Typical BMC, with a bit of a metallic aftertaste.

Mouthfeel: Similar to other pale lagers

Drinkability: Ok, it smells like grass and tastes like steel, but after a day of scuba diving, volcano touring and jungle trekking there is nothing better. Just writing this review takes me back to the wonderful nation of Vanuatu.

Tickers gotta tick Kenya! Pours clear light yellow and makes Coors Light look like an imperial stout. No head. Smells like sweet honey and malt. Super light mouthfeel. Flavor is sweet honey and hay, clean finish. High carbonation. Honestly this isn’t bad for a summer session beer. Easy drinking, sweet flavor. Take this over any US macro.

Poured from the bottle, it was a gift from my friend.

A- Crystal clear golden/straw, with a half finger white bubbly head. Retains quite well and has some good lacing.

S- Pale malt, light biscuit backbone, with a crisp hop nose.

T- Light maltiness with a very well balanced hop character.

M- Light, clean, and just a little fizzy.

O- It is a mass produced lager, but I would take it over Bud any day. It doesn't have the stale shitty taste you get from American Lagers.

A - light colour with the appearance of high carbination

S - no real smell

T - pleasanty supprised with the light taste & not a light beer taste. Hint of a light malt taste

M - no lingering taste.

O - nice light beer to drink after dinner. Though it appeared to have lots of carbination, doesn't leave you feeling bloated like many beers. Went well with salad.
