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.

Abrakarl (335) - SWEDEN - SEP 27, 2014
Sometimes when itís German or with a German tradition itís soooo important with the "reinheitsgebot", but thereís more to beer than being true to tradition. Bready mainstream. Not bad but not fun either.

notgeoff (2) - Jwaneng, BOTSWANA - MAY 20, 2013 does not count
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. Iím 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.
