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.

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!
