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.

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

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

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

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.

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.

A beautiful head forms on pouring, which retains more than half its size for well over a minute. Distinct maltyness, balanced well with just enough bitterness. Light amber in colour.

Bottle. Poured a nice golden colour with a fluffy white head. Had a slight caramel flavor. Slightly bitter but an easy drinking beer

ARMed (625) - 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!

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.
