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.

Yet another "international lager" with absolutely no personality, or taste for that matgter. Watery, pale with diminishing head. The aroma there is contains hints of cardboard and...well overcooked veggies.

UPDATED: JUL 20, 2017 Very boring and smells bad Actually just tasteless

Light with very little head. Not a lot of aroma, some malt sweetness. Quite a bitter taste, a bit overpowering.

Pours light straw. Thin to no head. Nose is metal and grass. Taste is metal, sweet, light caramel, light bread. Of the big SA lagers, I prefer Hansa.

Good summer lager. Not much aftertaste. Unfortunately another beer to use corn adjuncts. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bottle. Golden-yellow colored, clear with a rocky white head. Malty nose, mostly bread notes, light biscuit touch with some floral and spicy hoppy notes. Light to medium sweet taste, with a light bitterness. Body is light and crisp, with high carbonation and a sparkling mouthfeel. Flavor is flat, plain and indistinctive. Leaves a light bitter aftertaste.

It would’ve been interesting to taste the South African hops in this brew, but the taste is way too watery to extinguish any kind of hoppy character.

Соверше& средний и обычный лагер. Покупал во многих странах от Австрал& до Европы.

Clear, pale golden colour with a frothy white head that quickly dissipated. Bread and citrus aroma. Medium sweet, light-medium bitterness. Light bodied, thin texture. Soft carbonation. Slightly bitter finish. The ubiquitous South African pale lager. I don’t drink Castle very often, but I think it’s a decent contender in its class.

Karstenborg (1075) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 18, 2017
Clear light golden with a small white head. Aroma is grain, citrus and grass. Taste is corn, grain and water.
