At a tasting, thanks Kfir, yellow with no head, aroma of honey, malt and corn sugar, flavor of herbs with some bitterness and acids, light bodied, better than the other Namibian We had.

RichardGretton (4291) - Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 22, 2011
Bottle@Etosha, Namibia. Golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is smokey and malty, and the flavour is dry and mildly yeasty. Overall a pleasant but standard lager.

drpimento (2293) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Pours with a nice foamy, frothy, fine, off white head that slowly subsides with lots of little bubble trails and some lace. Color is a clear yellow. Aroma is hop, malt, cereal. Flavor is like nose and heavy on the cereal. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor with a hint of solvent and is short to medium in length. Servicable beer and nice to see no adjuncts.

33cl bottle from the local supermarket in Harare, Zimbabwe. It poured a pale golden colour with a medium big white foamy head that settled down fast in the glass. Aroma is malty with notes of grass. The flavour is grassy with notes of malts and cereal. It has a bitter, but short aftertaste.

Tafel is the beer of choice in Windhoek. A golden lager with a malty nose. A bit sweet. Crisp and clean. Definitely a session beer.
