Can on a plane. Nothing much good to say about this beer except that it had a very nice white head. Otherwise, below average.

jazz88 (2528) - San Francisco, California, USA - DEC 13, 2007
Bottle in South Africa in Oct 2007. Light golden color with a white head. Light floral and champagne like aroma. Refreshing and simple with a dry finish.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 7, 2007
Can obtained from Grahmstown, South Africa from my girlfriend: Pours a very pale yellow with a white film for head. The aroma has a very mild saaz hint and a bisquity malt touch. Very thin body, and a mild flavor. However it’s crisp and has a subdued saaz touch. Not much body or bitterness, but it’s refreshing, clean and very decent for a canned South African lager.

Beer4000 (4328) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUL 31, 2007
Bottle. Pale golden body with a white head. Malt with notes of hops in aroma. Flavor has some malt and hops, more than any of the other lagers from SAB. Watery body, but refreshing and drinkable.

zxxzooz (13) - Berkeley, California, USA - JUN 25, 2007
This beer has a nice flowery/jasminey type of nose with a fairly clean, crisp taste. It’s not super memoroable, but it is a nice drinking beer.

Hildigöltur (5104) - København, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2007
Canned on a South African Airways flight from London to Johannesburg and bottled in Kaapstad. Golden coloured. Malty aroma with notes of saaz hops. Sweetish malty flavour with some hoppiness in the finish. Soft mouthfeel.

grat (433) - ST. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 25, 2006
Bought in South Africa. Bright Golden beer. Firm head. Nose is relatively grassy. Clean matl character with some muddy corn. Beer is relatively tasteless at first. Malts kick in and have a tangy sweetness. Saaz hops finish it off. Ok...
