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.

Can, courtesy of and shared with Foffern, thanks man! :-) My first Namibian beer, and Foffern’s too, I think. We pop it open and share. Light golden body, small white head. Nose is pale malts and vague hints of red berry fruitiness. Pale malt sweetness with assertive blandness. :-P One in a million, but no major faults at least.

Bottle @ DØE tasting. Clear golden with a white head. Aroma is sweet, malty, grainy and bready. Flavor is medium sweet and light bitter. Sweet finish. Watery. 200213

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.

Golden colour. With Hansa’s lovely Urbock in mind it is disappointingly thin. Not much in the way of flavour or bitterness either. Not one of Namibia’s top beers.

SaintMatty (5110) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 5, 2008
Bottle - Golden in colour. Lightly malty aroma. Slightly soapy taste with some malt. Rather odd and even thoguh it is slightly out of date, it shouldn’t taste this strange.

Foffern (1168) - 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.

Oakes (12234) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 16, 2012
Slightly amber straw colour. No head. The aroma is mostly sticky pale malts. The bitterness is low and the malts are not especially pleasurable. Underhopped, one of the weaker Namibian beers.

AndreasJaeger (505) - Malmö, SWEDEN - FEB 6, 2013
Gul i färgen, vitt skum. Doftar svagt av malt gräs sött, fruktigt. Smakar söt malt, gräs, fruktigt, unken eftersmak. Vattnig och trist.

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.
