Is this my first African beer? I know I have had Kenya's Tusker but never posted about it. I also know that I have yet to have a Nigerian Guinness. You know - the one Ron buys for the train trip home. I received this and a few other's by Windhoek's Namibia Breweries from our pals at Roland and Russell and something about this beer seemed to fit for baseball's home run derby night: only 4%, hopefully as grainy tasty as the sibling I had the other night and resplendent of that great Namibian baseballing history.
The beer pours a medium pine gold with a huge billowy white head. Plenty of fragrant green grass and fruit on the nose. In the mouth, this is a very soft and restrained take on a pale lager with less of a steely German hop profile than I would have expected. Lower carbonation than I might have thought as well. Some stockiness amongst the grain as well as a bit of apple. I quite like this, a real session lager with a good level of flavour. BAers are a little unkind.
