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.

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

omhper (23724) - 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 (15806) - 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.

DSG (12189) - 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.

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

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!

Cunningham (7051) - Halden, NORWAY - JAN 28, 2012
Bottle directly from Namibia to Norway :-) Yellow colour with a white head. Light aroma with some hopps. Also a light malty and light hoppy flavour. But fresh and easy drinkable

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 Rather odd and even thoguh it is slightly out of date, it shouldn’t taste this strange.
