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.

drpimento (2169) - 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.

Dorqui (2091) - 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.

UPDATED: SEP 6, 2003 MGC with large very pale yellow fine bubbled creamy head. Very faint metallic herbal hops aroma. Very watery thin lightly effervescent body. Short lasting soapy medium mild stale hoppy bitter flavours. Lacks any real character or feature worth describing. T'was a drainpour.

Foffern (1159) - 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.

espenra (861) - Kurland, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2010
33cl bottle from the local supermarket in Harare, Zimbabwe. It poured a pale golden colour with a medium big white foamy head that settled down fast in the glass. Aroma is malty with notes of grass. The flavour is grassy with notes of malts and cereal. It has a bitter, but short aftertaste.

ARMed (597) - Garnet Valley, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 13, 2004
The best of the local Capetown SA beers. More body and flavor than your typical Hansa or Castle. Smooth and refreshing with a very smooth finish. Very little aftertaste. Bought a 6 pack in a small liquor store in capetown and enjoyed drinking it on the road to Cape Point! Good with langistines and prawns!
