Smooth lager poured from a bottle. No head but minimal lacing. Clean with no after taste.

This is just a nice change of pace. Very pale in color and certainly with a hint of adjuncts in both the aroma and taste. The mouthfeel is quite neutral with sufficient carbonation. Overall nothing particularly special but certainly worth a try.

This was good lager. I'd read a book, right on, some sort of Tom Clancy thing you read in an airport, in which the dudes were ordering Tuskers, so when I actually saw a six of it at my local specialty shop, I snapped it up and took it home. (I got some Tuborg once for the same reason, but this is about the Tusker).

Full-bodied, That's what I liked the most - this is not a thin, un-noticeable lager, and sort of like a wine, it has good "nose". It has some heft to it, but not so much that it fails to cut the dust, as a lager should do.

Given a selection of lagers from various areas that included this, I would definitely recommend Tusker as a solid choice.
