Tusker Lager

Tusker is a product of the East Africa Breweries Group.  It hails from Nairobi, Kenya and is sold in classic 500mL bottles--great shape and cool style.  It contains a rather anemic 4.2% alcohol.  Tusker is a clear, straw coloured pint with little head or carbonation.
With an aroma heavy in grains and a very mild flavour, Tusker is an extremely drinkable brew.  It has a blend of breadiness and a faint citrus zest.  There is a slight sweetness at the back end.

Tusker is a fine pale lager--not a great one.  It is highly drinkable, but not overly compelling.  It's definitely better than most macro-brewed pale lagers, and probably worth a try.  Still, I'd prefer more alcohol and more carbonation.  I like my lagers to fizz a it more.

Rating: 6.5 out of 10.
