High Wycombe House Warming. Thanks to Paul. Bright clear pale gold beer, thin white head. Palate is light, dry and fairly crisp. Very light malts, some lager character. Mild floral hop, whisper of citrus. Light semi dry finish. Its not that bad.

The_Osprey (7132) - Richmond, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 11, 2016
November 2016 - Bottle share at Theydons High Wycombe Tasting. Thanks Paul! As Windhoek Light. Pale yellow, clear and still, foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma is cereals, white pepper, spicy. Body is smooth with soft carbonation. Taste is water, light cereals, not much at all. Not dissimilar to water. I like water, and so I like this. But its not a good beer at all. (1.7)

Leighton (19531) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 5, 2016
Bottle shared in High Wycombe - thanks to Scopey. Pours clear, pale yellow with a creamy, white head. Light paper in the nose, some cereal, dry hay. A little sugary, with simple cereal, hints of paper, white bread. Light bodied with average carbonation. Sweet, sugary finish, more white bread, cereal and paper. So so.

Scopey (13311) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2016
Can at Africa Oil Week. It pours clear pale yellow with a small white head. The aroma is sweet, creamed corn, cornbread, grassy and straw. The taste is crisp, clean, white bread, touch of corn, straw and grass with a short, dry finish. Light body and moderate, foamy carbonation. Really not so bad for a light lagerbier.

330ml bottle BB June 2016 (Uh-oh...) Aroma is skunky/oxidized/ Light straw color with Ok head. Taste was pretty much wet cardboard with minimal bitterness. Perhaps if I had a fresh bottle things would have been different.

330ml bottle. Pours clear gold with no head. Drank this straight after the regular Windhoek. Just tastes like a watered down version.
