This is a refreshing beer and very much native to Kenya. One can find it everywhere in Kenya and comes darn cheap! 500 ml bottles of the Tusker are sold at US$1. For the price, it's a bargain. Being a Lager it is quite smooth and light. One can definitely swap water for a Tusker, any day!

(purchased at Binny's Beverage, Marcey St., CHI - no freshness date - poured into a half pint)

A: pale, faded, corn gold color... relatively clear... good bit of white foam forms on the pour, holding longer than expected, leaving a cap riddled with big bubbles

S: sweetish malt with shades of pancake... not all that different from your average mass-produced lager

T: basic pale lager taste with some interesting nuances... no clear cut indication anywhere whether this is all-malt or not, but it sort of tastes like it could be... corn muffin, shortbread flavors, light toasted notes... no hops, minimal balancing bitterness

M: feels like an all-malt lager, a bit fuller than a rice or corn beer... clean, soft, mellow... no bite

O: pretty decent... wouldn't mind drinking a few of these if it was the only thing around

A: Pours from a 12 oz bottle a clear pale yellow with a one-inch thick ivory white which fades to the rim and a thin cap leaving clumpy lace.

N: Barley, malts, grainy, yeast, biscuits, faint lemony citrus.

T: Crisp, slightly skunked corn, malty, earthy and rather bland.

M: Light body and semi-medium carbonation. Semi-dry and clean finish.

O: Just another adjunct lager (JAAL), this time from Africa.

Appearance - Pours a straw gold with a finger of bubbly head that quickly recedes.

Smell - sweet malts, corn adjuncts, grains, apple.

Taste - Pretty much similar to the aromas. A very standard American adjunct.

Mouthfeel - Light to medium bodied with light to moderate carbonation. Finishes dry and and sweet malts linger.

Overall - A simple easy drinking American adjunct. Nothing really stands out here from other American adjuncts. This brew would be good after doing some yardwork.
