    From Vin de Pays of Long Beach, CA. Poured a smallish white head above a body of clear, medium gold. Aroma waa pleasant yet atypical, with maybe some malt but with also an unidentifiable quality. Rather like the taste, in fact. Mouthfeel was okay but did lighten up at the finish. An average yet drinkable beer.

    Nothing much special about this beer; little of the character present in the regular Windhoek Lager. Pours a still medium yellow with a light and airy pure white head. Grainy aroma and a crisp mouthfeel. Biscuits and cereal flavors with some bitter hop crispness that ends somewhat sour.

    courtesy of MadDan - very clear pale golden colour, stable white foam; poor aroma with a touch of corn; soft and neutral palate, medium-bodied at best, slightly sweet and no bitterness detected; short tasteless finish - close to water

    Bought a whole carton of this from an importer without even trying it, very costly with high postage costs as not availible in Tasmania. This beer is absolutely fantastic, great all round, and always very enjoyable. A great gift from the great country of Namibia!!

    A flavourfull malty beer brewed to the german putiry law. The aroma isn't great, but the flavour more than makes up for this. Tasted like a maltier, less bitter version of Beck's.

    Bottled. Pale yellow colour, big creamy head. Vegetably malty aroma with hints of grass. Quite watery, but weak malt and hops. Not that exciting.
