The TUSKER I tried was the one brewed in TANZANIA! Beer drinkers say that it is better than the Kenyan original. It is a light beer with only 4.2% alc. good for a hot day in DAR. Taste and aroma are neutral. Good for thirst quenching but not for pleasure.

Tusker Premium Lager pours a golden yellow with a thin white head from a brown twelve ounce bottle. The aroma is sweet and grainy. I can taste a fair amount of malt and lots of grain, there's not much more to it. Very light bodied. This is a decent enough lager, worth a try.

500ml bottle served in a pilsen glass.

A: Pours an absolutely clear pale yellow color forming a medium fluffy and bubbled white head. Medium retention and lots of lacings left in the glass

S: Strong sweet malts in the nose. Very bready and biscuity. Notes of adjunct malts, mainly rice. Light notes of flowery hops

T: Follows the nose. Strong notes of sweet malts. Quite biscuity and crispy. Again, some notes of adjunct malts. Light hops bitterness in the end

M: Very light body and medium carbonation. Crispy malty aftertaste

O: Drinkable and not that bad for an Adjunct Lager
