COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

Papsoe (25083) - 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

omhper (19976) - Tyresö, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2002
Golden colour. With Hansa’s lovely Urbock in mind it is disappointingly thin. Not much in the way of flavour or bitterness either. Not one of Namibia’s top beers.

Oakes (12789) - 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.

Bov (9810) - 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

DSG (6352) - Tel Aviv, ISRAEL - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle at a tasting. Thanks the guy whose name I can’t remember at the moment! Pale clear golden with no head. Aroma of cooked cereals and a bit of butter. Sweetish flavor of cereals with a more bitter finish. Light-bodied.

I enjoyed this beer by buying a sixer and using it as a good everyday beer, it has a great solid taste that has a very pleasing smell and look, good head! The perfect beer for a hot day and a braai!

SaintMatty (5537) - 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 Rather odd and even thoguh it is slightly out of date, it shouldn’t taste this strange.

Beershine (5218) - 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 :(

Hildigöltur (5103) - 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.
