Ljust gyllene i färgen, vitt skum. Doftar söt malt, majs, lätt citrus, lemon. Smakar vattnigt söt malt, unket, lite citrus, majs. Trist.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Far from perfect, but still the best mass-produced beer in Souther Africa. It is more complex than the ordinary Windhoek Lager, which makes it the more pleasant experience, in my opinion. My only criticism is that the beer somehow lacks the subtlety of the better European lagers. It has a rough, coarse palate and suffers from the soapy aftertaste most South African beers are afflicted with. However, having said that, it is still a cut above the (local) rest. And if it is served really cold on a blistering African summers day- it provides a refreshing, satisfying experience.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Golden with little head. Malty nose and taste. A bit darker and stronger than the other Namibian beers. Some lemon in the taste. Bitter in the finish.

Bottled, pasteurised, many thanks to Rick for sharing his Birthday Present. Straw, yellow with short white head. Reasonable malty lager with a sharpish hop, tangy with hints of lemon. Certainly had worse than this.

Clear pale straw yellow color, small white head. Malty and cron scent and taste. Medium to moussy mouthfeel, low bitterness. My friend warned my about this one, but I really wanted to try a beer from Namibia. Well, I tried it, not I really don’t need to do the same again, at least not with this beer...

2 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
Pale golden body with clean white head. Aroma was soapy and doughy. Taste was pretty one dimensional, didn’t like the bittering hops, malt and rice, a bit oily and that is all the good points.
