Bottles in campsites in Namibia August 2012.Beer bought in local supermarkets.Light golden color.Little to medium aroma.A bit weak and thin beer. Only 4 % alcohol.It has more taste than Windhoek Lager and is absolutely a nice thirst quencher.

Outside of microbreweries, there are very few commercial beers that capture the malty taste that I enjoy in a beer, but Tafel does just that. I’m not sure I would agree with the consideration of Tafel as a smooth beer, but the CO2 accentuates the flavour, dissipating it across the palate.

AndreasJaeger (505) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2013
Gul i färgen, vitt skum. Doftar svagt av malt gräs sött, fruktigt. Smakar söt malt, gräs, fruktigt, unken eftersmak. Vattnig och trist.

Oakes (11842) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Slightly amber straw colour. No head. The aroma is mostly sticky pale malts. The bitterness is low and the malts are not especially pleasurable. Underhopped, one of the weaker Namibian beers.

AtronSeige (472) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - NOV 30, 2012
Light yellow lager, frothy head Sweet hay aroma. Light sweetness, light bitterness, slightly salty. Very fizzy on the tongue, light/medium bodied. A easy drinking summer sun beer.

Beershine (5196) - The Sunshine State, Florida, USA - OCT 17, 2012
Bottle from Cape Town store. Golden, with scant head. What a stench this emits. Really harsh sawdust. Palate is watery with lively carbonation but it is plastic and sweet. This is terrible :(
