COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION

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

Bottle@Etosha, Namibia. Golden beer with a strong head. The aroma is smokey and malty, and the flavour is dry and mildly yeasty. Overall a pleasant but standard lager.

Can, courtesy of and shared with Foffern, thanks man! :-) My first Namibian beer, and Foffern’s too, I think. We pop it open and share. Light golden body, small white head. Nose is pale malts and vague hints of red berry fruitiness. Pale malt sweetness with assertive blandness. :-P One in a million, but no major faults at least.

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.

At a tasting, thanks Kfir, yellow with no head, aroma of honey, malt and corn sugar, flavor of herbs with some bitterness and acids, light bodied, better than the other Namibian We had.

bluevegie (3051) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 10, 2006
Medium golden body with a fairly lasting white head. Aroma of malt and adjuncts. Taste is sweet, pretty thin and boring.

PilsnerPeter (3028) - 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.

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.

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.
