330 ml can. Clear, very pale golden with a big, fast disappearing white head. Aroma of sweet grain and corn. Flavor is some kind of sweet grain and sour. Not much bitterness at all. Thin body and weak aftertaste. Not a very nice experience.

Clear yellow-golden with a good frothy head. Toasted cereal, light sweet malty taste with a dry mild bitterness. A bit watery and metalic finish.

0.5 l bottle at Sakhumzi, Soweto, South Africa... Clear golden color, bad head... Od hop aroma, nothing for a second try... Boring Pale Ale taste... Unspecial ending...

When in South Africa, you canít find Windhoek and itís either this or Castle lager, I will drink this. The hang over wonít be as severe. Other than that, this is just barley flavoured fizzy water with less hops than most.

This is my favourite locally brewed beer. It is deliciously bitter and the fact that it is amongst the cheapest beers available makes it even better. It is available basically everywhere as well.

Iíll give it good on a hot day. Not much flavor, plenty of bubbles, a hint of hops, but no real flavor to speak of.

RichardGretton (4240) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 6, 2014
Bottle@South Africa. Golden beer with a strong white head. The aroma is dry with yeastiness, and the flavour is also dry with yeastiness and some maltyness. Overall a reasonable lager, I am sure it is better than the British version.
