1.7 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
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.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 5/20
Bottle sample at a tasting at Levi’s place. Thanks Levi. Pale golden with a white head. Aroma of grains, hay, acetaldehyde and some corn. Grainy flavor, slightly corny, with light sweetness, a papery note and a drier finish with a bitterish hint. Light-bodied.

2.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
Sampled from 12-oz can and shared by Caleb. Pours a clear golden pale colored brew with a fast dissipating off-white head and leaves behind minimal lacing. Aroma of corn, grassy hops and corn husk. Taste is light bodied, husky with some corn and grassy hops. Finish is semi-sweet, light crisp and minimal aftertaste. That’s the first time I can actually say, "Hey Mabel, thanks for the Black Label."

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 6/20
Pour out of 12 oz can, thanks Caleb! Clear yellow with white head, aroma is corn, grass, sweet some odd hot notes, hints of grainy, husky notes, touch of bread. Taste is a mix of corn, chemical, touch of grain, hints of cardboard, slight bread notes but its a bit oddly sweet. Interesting, but not overly terrible.

330 ml. can sampled @ Pure Apricot Tasting. Thanks! Clear golden, little white head. Metal, hay, water, pale lager nose,… Taste is light touch metal, lager, hay, light malt, faint sugar,… Lightly metallic body. Little taste meaning actually pretty enjoyable for a pale lager.

1.5 AROMA 2/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 7/20
When in South Africa, you can’t find Windhoek and it’s either this or Castle lager, I will drink this. The hang over won’t be as severe. Other than that, this is just barley flavoured fizzy water with less hops than most.
