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.

JRiley77 (15) - SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 28, 2014
This is one of the most disgusting beers I have ever had. It tastes like saline solution mixed with hops.

SlackerMads (1547) - Greater London, ENGLAND - JUN 20, 2014
Bottle. Clear yellow with a small white head. Paper, grain, egg, herbal. Light body, watery texture, medium carbonation, light sweet and bitter. Watery, but has a dry finish that works. It’s very bland, but could be a lot worse. Would drink again if in Namibia.

Stuu666 (2138) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUN 15, 2014
Bottle at Shebeen. Pours clear golden, dull toffee nose, taste is sweet, dry toffee, light floral, ok for a lager.

erickok (3499) - Tours (and Paris), FRANCE - JUN 1, 2014
Golden body medium and stable head. Unsuspecting clean simple malts, hopless. Dry nasty metallic. Really not very good. If only it had some hops... (Bottle at My Food Sud Africain during the 1FRBG)

EddyBeer1 (870) - Brussels, BELGIUM - MAY 28, 2014
Blonde classique, effervescence moyenne, col blanc tombe rapidement. Malts cara, bonne petite amertume, de la pils classique et sans maïs, ce qui est assez appréciable.
