Sweet edge that does not become pervasive. Citric fruitiness as an underlying flavor that adds a nice character that differentiates Tusker from other lagers. Nothing standout, but enjoyable.

This brew pours with a large three finger fluffy white head which takes some time to dissipate. There is light lacing left on the glass; strong carbonation. The beer is a yellow /orange and when held up to the light a lot of sediment (yeast)? can be seen.

The smell is crisp, clean and tangy, maybe some orange and/or lemon zest in there.

The taste follows the nose with a clean, crisp lager taste followed by some lemon peel and orange. The finish is a little dry.

Overall there is nothing amazing going on with this lager, it is not the worst adjunct lager I have tasted but it is not the best either. I would drink it again but I will not go looking for it.

Aroma was grainy, biscuit, rice/corn, smells bland and very much like an adjunct lager. There was a very slight earthy hop character and it took on a slight tang as it warmed. It poured a pale golden color with a big white head and it had a body that surprised me, I was expecting water and got something light to medium with a moderate carbonation level. Taste was BORING! That blandness really carried through to the palate. Grainy, biscuit from the malt, subtle earthy hop, but mostly a whole lotta nothin. It's just not a good beer, if this is the style I'm going for I might as well be handed a Bud Light.
