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.

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.

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.

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.

drpimento (2419) - 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 (2127) - 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 (1386) - 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.

OlJuntan64 (1265) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - SEP 5, 2003
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.
