Castle Lager uses South African hops – note the solid foam, as well as the reassuring bitterness with undertones of malt. This beer is somewhat dry, somewhat bitter but never sweet.

ComradeK (1260) - Sydney, - SEP 24, 2012
500ml bottle. Pours a clear darkish gold, with a small white head, which lasts reasonably well, but leaves little lacing. Sweet malt and adjunct notes along with some faint fruity hops make up the aroma. Mild fruity hops up front lead into some corn bread and plain cake flavours. The finish is probably a little over-sweet. Another uninspiring lager.

Pours clear yellowish without a head, yet another piss. Aroma is non significant. As of taste it’s slightly better African beer I tried, still not a superstar though.

A bland lager that inevitable lying gives me a hangover. Pours golden clear with good heavy but no nose and not much taste

This African Lager pours fast with a bubbly head that disapears quite fast. It has adark yellow complexion with fat carbon bubbles floating. The beer is a little bitter on the tongue and then has an abrupt finish. The flavor is mild, but it makes a refreshing beer on a warm summer day.

dead trans gold body, dead corn nose, watery. Strong corn in flavor. Lightly buttery, oily finish, toast. Nothing from nothing

Can shared by Travlr. Pours clear pale straw with a medium, fizzy white head, short retention with light lacing. Aroma and flavor are corn, grain, meal, and spicy hops. Light body, warmth, and carbonation with a dry finish.

Light body, minimal carbonation. It’s been a while since I’ve given out a perfect 0.5 -- thanks Gene for finding this gem!
