Bov (10374) - Bienne, SWITZERLAND - NOV 29, 2006
courtesy of MadDan - very pale and clear golden-yellow colour; irregular little foam; shy touch of herbs and corn in the nose; some sweetness with a slightly harsh palate; quite dry and moderately tart bitterness; short corny finish - inhospitable

PilsnerPeter (3029) - Flushing, New York, USA - SEP 24, 2007
Can: Pours a yellowish golden with a fizzy white film for head. Sweet aroma of brewing flakes, corn mash and adjunct. The flavor has some sweet pale malt upfront, followed by a papery character. There’s surprisingly some peppery mild bitterness in the finish. Would be quaff-able on a hot African, sun-drenched day.

At a tasting, thanks Kfir, yellow with no head, aroma of honey, malt and corn sugar, flavor of herbs with some bitterness and acids, light bodied, better than the other Namibian We had.

Bottles in campsites in Namibia August 2012.Beer bought in local supermarkets.Light golden color.Little to medium aroma.A bit weak and thin beer. Only 4 % alcohol.It has more taste than Windhoek Lager and is absolutely a nice thirst quencher.

WhoU (121) - 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.

The only interesting thing about this beer is its origin. Just another lager beer.

DSG (8346) - Tel Aviv, - AUG 16, 2011
Bottle at a tasting. Thanks the guy whose name I can’t remember at the moment! Pale clear golden with no head. Aroma of cooked cereals and a bit of butter. Sweetish flavor of cereals with a more bitter finish. Light-bodied.

ClubGonzo (4617) - Bergen, NORWAY - APR 21, 2012
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.
