330 ml bottle poured into a tumbler

A- Light gold and crystal clear. Light white head barely retains. No lacing.

S- A little fruity, grainy sweetness. No sharp hop.

T- Mild grain, some sweetness.

M- Light. A little less crisp than the regular Tusker.

O- It's ok. A little too sweet, but I'm sure it would quench a thirst on a hot Kenyan day.

A 330ml green glass bottle with a BB of March 2012, so it's just out of date. Picked up last year on a business trip to Kenya. The bottle is embossed with the Tusker name; the neck label describes it as a 100% malt lager.

Poured into a straight pint glass. A pale golden colour with nice carbonation. Forms a decent head of creamy white foam that lasts for a minute or two before subsiding. Faint aroma of light malt and stewed hops, with a whiff of background solvent.

Tastes of light malt with a hint of stewed hops and a mild bitter finish. Faint graininess and a subtle harsh note upon swallowing, but generally clean. Mouthfeel is light and prickly - standard for a macro lager. Weak aftertaste of harsh stewed hops.

Run-of-the-mill for a mass-produced lager, though a shade better than it's more famous cousin. Fairly bland and dull, but probably quite refreshing in a hot climate. Have it if it's the only beer on offer.

Pours from a 12 oz bottle into Sam Adams lager glass- poured a very clear, very light golden color with a one finger head that dissipated rapidly and had a little lacing.

Smells like pale lagers usually do- like pale malts and lager yeast.

Tastes very refreshing- very very pale malt sweetness with a well rounded hop dryness. Not too complex but not bad.

Mouthfeel is great especially for a lager. Well carbonated with a light body. Definitely better than all American adjuncts but I don't think this is my style of lager.

Bottle: Poured a pale yellow color lager with a small pure white foamy head. Aroma of adjunct is not present as opposed to most beers from this brewery. Taste is quite bland with light cereal notes and a semi-sweet finish. Body is thin with good carbonation. This is another bland offering form this brewery though it is superior to the original.

The little brother of Tusker. A more flavorful version of the standby, and in a smaller bottle.

Appearance> Yellow, lively. (slightly darker than standard Tusk). Clear. Creamy white head. lovely.

Smell> strong grain... slight metal. hmmm

Taste> Very flavorful. Better than Tusker because it is both more complex and more refreshing. Tastes of fresh grain, slightly bitter. No hang at all.

Mouf> hmmm. can't describe. my notes said "irony" I am guessing it leaves your mouth feeling something akin to the sensation of eating spinach??

Drinkability> I like spinach so I guess the mouf didn't bother me too much. Still became my standby beer most days on safari.
