A rich malt after taste completes this lager to perfection.

Vaiz (4460) - Den Haag, - FEB 26, 2013
Hazy gold. Aroma a bit funky, wet dog, strange lager yeast and German hops. Flavor is nice and smooth with some spices and German hops. Well drinkable. Rather surprising after the nose.

440ml Can: Pours a crystal clear golden with frothy white head. Lacing. Typical mainstream lager aromas of hay, breadcrust and some apple. Similarly, flavours are mainsteam, however, a very nice beer. Not sure why one should be paying premium "craft" prices for this mass produced Namibian Breweries brewed beer. Easy drinking, crisp and clean finish. Overall a good lager.

Very disappointing for a Namibian beer. Poured a dark gold colour. Very large off white head. Strong hops after taste but that was all

Clear golden colour with thick white head. Gentle malt aroma with a bit of bread and a mere hint of citrus. Flavour is medium sweet. Not a lot of bitterness. I hoped for a bit more from this.

Tim Webb (429) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2017
40cl bottle from Ginja in Cape Town. Disappointingly ordinary, Craft Pilsner suggests to me decoction mashing, generous Saaz hops and elongated cold conditioning. This was none of the above and tasted pretty industrial. Technically fine but left me unimpressed by the rest.

Scopey (14014) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 5, 2016
Bottle from Checkers Liquor Store, Windhoek. It pours clear yellow with a medium white head. The aroma is sweet, papery, lager maltage, grainy notes and cereal. The taste is surprisingly sweet upfront, sugary, grainy, cheap white bread, cream soda and cereal with a sweetish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Pretty sweet and shitty. Dont know what makes this craft.....

Pleasant, easy drinking Lager. Would drink again. Pretty label makes one expect something sweeter but maybe thats just me.

Bottle. This is a sweet malty lager which if not consumed at a frigid temp tastes a lot like old english malt liquor.

This is not a good lager it has a funky smell and the after tast is just like a lion lager of SAB. Will never drink this again.
