Nose
Crisp aroma of lemon and herbal hops.
Palate
Also crisp and bittersweet, with a herbal hoppy character. It's such a delicate beer, however, that any hint of oxidation can dominate, as sadly it does here through wet paper notes.
Finish
The swallow is sweet, then the finish dries, with hops building slowly and leaving a mellow bitterness.
Comment
The finish of this Namibian lager is a bit lightweight, but this would be an enjoyable, refreshing beer if it wasn't for the oxidation.

Nose
Honey, citrussy hops and stainless steel spoons.
Palate
Sweet but quite thin.
Finish
More bitter than expected.
Comment
Wouldn't mind a cold glass of this on a sunny Namibian terrace.
