4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Does not immediately stand out against other commercial beers. That is, not until your first sip! Flavourful for a beer, Windhoek is one of the few commercial beers that consistently entices an ABF.

2.5 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle from the fridge at work.... It pours clear pale gold with a decent white head. The nose is soft, mild sweetness, cereal, straw, white bread. The taste is crisp, clean, lightly bitter, white bread and some grassy nuances with a dry finish. Light-medium body and average carbonation. Simple and clean. A pretty good example of the style.

2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 2/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
330ml bottle ’BB 2015’. Pale yellow, clear, highly sparkling, small bubbly white head. Aroma is sweet, honey-ish, musty, a little card. Body is medium to light, pretty spritzy, a little foamy. Taste is light, water, cardboard, sweet malts, soft bitterness. Nothing offensive about this. Plain, watery lager with a fizzy palate.

Bottle, part of some extras from a trade with nisse666, thanks! Pale, murky malty, cardboardy herbs. Some old grass (prob the best flavour component tho), horrid.

1.6 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 4/20
Poured from a bottle into a teku glass with about 4 mm of white foam head and a showing transparent gold hues.
The nose shows a lot of stainless steel and tobacco-like malts.
The palate shows a lot of round sweet malts reminiscent of a blonde. But the first impression is the same tobacco-like quality. Aggressive carbonation and drinks like any regular macro lager.
