COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

PilsnerPeter (3037) - 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.

drpimento (2863) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - JAN 22, 2011
Pours with a nice foamy, frothy, fine, off white head that slowly subsides with lots of little bubble trails and some lace. Color is a clear yellow. Aroma is hop, malt, cereal. Flavor is like nose and heavy on the cereal. Body is ok and so is carbonation. Finish is like flavor with a hint of solvent and is short to medium in length. Servicable beer and nice to see no adjuncts.

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.

Yves (2758) - Turnhout, BELGIUM - AUG 29, 2014
Shared with wim at wim’s place. Clear goldblond colored beer, with no head and no carbonation. Malty cartonnage aroma. Medium sparkling palate. Finish is sweet slightly malty.

Holmen2 (2562) - NORWAY - DEC 1, 2015
Backlog. From bottle at Hotel Europa Hof in Bismarck Straße, Swakopmund, Namibia 12.07.12. Light golden. Quickly receding head. Hint of aroma of German hops, half-decent but simple bitterness, short to medium aftertaste. Mediocre.

POLK (2219) - Hørning, DENMARK - AUG 24, 2014
Thin clear golden color. small white foam. Light hoppy aroma. Easy drinkable but slightly bland.

Dorqui (2161) - Brescia, ITALY - OCT 13, 2005
UPDATED: SEP 14, 2007 Canned 0,33L. Much abundant and fragrant foam, optimal persistence and duration. Limpid yellow color, pale and much bubbly one. Promising aspect for a canned beer. Unfortunately lean and watery scent. Pungent taste, lightly bitter and little malty rumors. Short and insipid end.
Thanks to Stefy for this beer.

Foffern (1595) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAY 6, 2012
Can shared with ClubGonzo. Has a clear straw yellow colour with a very small white head. Aromas of pale malt, hay, grass, sweet corn and some fresh berries. The flavour is a bit sweet with hay and sweet corn. The mouth feel is watery, thin and a bit slick. Light bitterness. Not a bad beer, just boring.

ElManana (1576) - Scheldewindeke, BELGIUM - AUG 17, 2015
Can & bottle on holiday in Namibia, numerous times. My prefered lager in Namibia. Crisp, clean, light bitter, nice lager.
