0.5L bottle. Pour clear pale with a rocky white head. Aromas of dust and grass. Flavor is pretty lacking in this one. Some hints of bready malt, and then some not-so-pleasant hops. Light body with a thin mouthfeel. Overall, a pretty crappy lager that doesn’t have anything noteworthy, except that it’s one of only a few beers that can be found in Zambia!

Test no 500! Looks good, taste not spectacular but could be worse; somehow chemical especially to the end. But in case you are thirsty and in South Africa: It’s OK.

Malty sweet aroma, little bitter on first taste less sweet then your typical North American lager. All in all just a lager nothing special was good with my burger.

erickok (3424) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 1, 2014
Golden shiny body and flimsy head. Grainy, white sugar. Ugh. Way too heavy carbonation. Bad and too sweet. And expensive. (Bottle at My Food Sud Africain during the 1FRBG)

Bottle 33cl @MyFood Montreuil shared by Erikok. A sweet lager, typical poor lager notes, corn sugar notes, almost no hops, very boring.

UPDATED: MAY 27, 2014 clear golden-yellow with an average white head. Averagely malty with corn and cereal aroma and a light hops and bitter finish. Quite fizzy and watery but quite a good balance between sweet and bitter.

massingasetta (178) - München, GERMANY - MAY 25, 2014
Bier aus Süd Afrika - da denkt man naja. Castle ist aber ein klassisches Lager. Geruch ist intensiv malzig, gewürzig. Farbe ist wahrlich flüssiges Gold. Einstieg ist frisch und etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Dieses Bier ist sehr sehr süffig. Ein leichter herber Abgang im typischen ausländischem Stile. Das trifft bei mir ins Schwarze. Fazit: Gutes Lager aus Afrika.

Can. One of the plainest, most unassuming lagers. Aromas of light malt with a touch of corn. More corn in the flavour, with a touch of hops. Light bodied. Pretty smooth and easy to drink, and nothing offensive here. Just really boring.
