Tafel Lager is a fine quality, smooth tasting natural lager with a wholesome flavor and aroma. This beer has its origins at Hansa Brewery in Swakopmund. The taste can be described as the ideal balance between refreshment, flavor and bitterness, which makes it the perfect companion for any occasion.

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.

SaintMatty (6846) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2008
Bottle - Golden in colour. Lightly malty aroma. Slightly soapy taste with some malt. Rather odd and even thoguh it is slightly out of date, it shouldn’t taste this strange.

Bottle. With all due respect to Cu6a who rated this a couple before me, there certainly are lot of better beers than this. But for what it is, it’s all right. Decent clear golden appearance with a snow white head, and a mild aroma and flavour with no off-notes. Clean, refreshing - but also pretty boring.

Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 6, 2008
(Bottle 34 cl) Pours a clear golden with a white head. Lightly sweet, malty nose. Medium body with sweet malts and brewing cereal. Very subdued bitterness. A very classical yet drinkable Pale Lager. 050508

Tafel Lager The beer of choice as our traveling companion and social events. Putting it simply - there is no better beer.

PilsnerPeter (3045) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Can: Pours a yellowish golden with a fizzy white film for head. Sweet aroma of brewing flakes, corn mash and adjunct. The flavor has some sweet pale malt upfront, followed by a papery character. There’s surprisingly some peppery mild bitterness in the finish. Would be quaff-able on a hot African, sun-drenched day.

Hildigöltur (5105) - København, DENMARK - MAR 14, 2007
Can from Shoprite, Port Elizabeth. Golden coloured. Notes of bread in the aroma and in the flavour. Some grass in the finish. Slightly sweet. Light to medium bodied.

Bov (12007) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 29, 2006
courtesy of MadDan - very pale and clear golden-yellow colour; irregular little foam; shy touch of herbs and corn in the nose; some sweetness with a slightly harsh palate; quite dry and moderately tart bitterness; short corny finish - inhospitable

Frits (3) - Big Bay, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 22, 2006 does not count
Excellent aroma, makes o want to drink it. Appearance not spectacular, head doesn’t inspire. Flavour is superb, with good hops flavour. This beer did my palate a favour in very warm conditions.

Almost exactly like Windhoek Lager. I can’t tell them apart at all. Enjoyed near Sossusvlei, Namibia, but available almost anywhere in Namibia and in parts of S. Africa.
