Light yellow lager, frothy head Sweet hay aroma. Light sweetness, light bitterness, slightly salty. Very fizzy on the tongue, light/medium bodied. A easy drinking summer sun beer.

Gul i färgen, vitt skum. Doftar svagt av malt gräs sött, fruktigt. Smakar söt malt, gräs, fruktigt, unken eftersmak. Vattnig och trist.

WhoU (109) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 14, 2013
UPDATED: DEC 15, 2013 Bottle South Africa. Pours golden clear straw. Heavy carbonation and head that does not last. Aroma of straw. Nothing special. Typical pale lager.

Tafel Lager The beer of choice as our traveling companion and social events. Putting it simply - there is no better beer.

Excellent aroma, makes o want to drink it. Appearance not spectacular, head doesn’t inspire. Flavour is superb, with good hops flavour. This beer did my palate a favour in very warm conditions.

One of the best beers I ever drank. A bit stronger in flavour than the "Windhoek". Great!

An absolutely beautifully tasting beer, on any occasion. Smooth and wholesome of flavour, with a beautiful blond appearance.

Outside of microbreweries, there are very few commercial beers that capture the malty taste that I enjoy in a beer, but Tafel does just that. I’m not sure I would agree with the consideration of Tafel as a smooth beer, but the CO2 accentuates the flavour, dissipating it across the palate.
