A pleasant summer thirst-quencher!

Tusker Lager, made in Kenya by Kenya Breweries Ltd, pours into the glass with a lovely golden straw colour but a head that's somewhere between modest and virtually non-existent. What little head is there does seem to have some pretty good staying power and lasted through the entire length of time it took me to drink the glass. Carbonation was equally average but, once again, seemed to have the staying power to last throughout the duration of its drinking.
The nose, a very mild combination of citrus and floral scents just didn't seem to carry through to the taste. There were just the mildest notes of bread and biscuit. That said, the taste was pleasant if not outstanding in any way. A nice bitter hoppy taste with no outstanding overtones and a finish that was pleasant without being dry left me with the conclusion that Tusker Lager was a pleasant summer thirst-quencher. It's not a beer I'd search round the world for but I certainly enjoyed the glass I had.
At only 4.2% alcohol/volume, it would make a wonderful accompaniment to any summer barbecue.

This isn't the best beer I have tried, but I sue enjoyed it the few times I got to drink it in Kenya! Very easy to drink, and goes well with chapati!

Mmmm ... I'm picturing myself sitting on a balcony overlooking a beach in Mombasa. A Tusker WOULD fit nicely into that picture.
