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.

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.

Tafel is the beer of choice in Windhoek. A golden lager with a malty nose. A bit sweet. Crisp and clean. Definitely a session beer.

Bottle. With all due respect to Cu6a who rated this a couple before me, there certainly are lot of better beers than this. But for what it is, it’s all right. Decent clear golden appearance with a snow white head, and a mild aroma and flavour with no off-notes. Clean, refreshing - but also pretty boring.

Bottle 330ml. A clear light golden colour with a white head. An aroma of malt and cereal. The taste is light sweet. Light body and medium carbonation. A very light pale ale. Drinkable summer ale.
