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.

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.

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.

Medium golden body with a fairly lasting white head. Aroma of malt and adjuncts. Taste is sweet, pretty thin and boring.

330 ML can smuggled back from South Africa, Thanks for the hookup Tony! Brilliantly clear light golden color with a decent sized bubbly bone white head that dissipates rather quickly. Aromas of light sweet bready pilsner malt with a hint of sugar and just enough floral hops to be detected. The flavor is light sweet maltiness with a firm bitterness to counter. Prickly carbonation brings up a bit of a tart carbonic bite. Little to no hop flavor. Clean well made lager with no obvious flaws, but like most in the style it lacks much in the way of flavor.

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.
