Castle is not bad but Windhoek is fecking amazing.

I am not a beer drinker by all means. When I went to South Africa to visit the inlaws I fell in love with Castle Lager. I downed 3 bottes in the airport before we had to come home... I have been looking for 3 years now to try and find a place in the US to mail me some more.

Since I had started working in Africa,my first discovered drink was ,Castle Beer. No other Beers can be compared to this one.

For more than 20 years many of my friends and I am consuming castle lager. No other beer was ever good enough. Thou, for the past few months there is a funny taste to the beer. Is there something wrong with a certain batch? It is definately not my imagination, as many differend people and friends are complaining of exactly the same taste?

I really miss having a few Castle's with a bowl of biltong watching the Lions kicking the seven shits out of the Sharks / Stormers / Bulls / Cheetahs. In Ireland you can buy Castle at Odd Bins - but they don't always stock it - or you can go to Spurs and have a steak and Castle lager. In winter I just love Guinness, Castle is for summer.

I aint found any better beer to drink, all those who give it less than 8 should stick to water.

Best in the world by far

I am normally not a beer drinker but this is the best beer I have ever had. Experienced it on a trip to South Africa several years ago. Is there any place in the United States where it can be purchased? Would love to buy some and enjoy it again. Thanks.

It is the best ever beer known to mankind. I must say that Charles outdid himself, just wanna take this opportunity to thank him for the bottom of my belly.

Who ever says Castle is anythig less than the greatest needs a right bok patat poesklap.Im sick of Yanks and watered down South Africans writing off my heritage, my pride, my roots, because they were never doppers, voetsek julle half gebakte masepoese, en vrot op die grond waar jou vuil ma jou lelike kippie uitgespuit het.I demand that Castle be sold in Yank land,I pay my taxes, I want to have my time with the taste that has stood the test of time

The Best in S.A.

I have in my life drank many a beers. Mostly dozen a day for 35 years. nothing there to beat castle lager and if you can find it in draught even better. Only way to get some here in USA is to order from African Hut. Go Castle go. I once was at Sodwana Bay and since I cannot swim I could not join my friends on a scuba diving expedition. I offered to guard the castle beer on the beach until they returned. Needless to say that they were very upset when they returned to find 23 out of 24 empty bottles. What happened? By the way, the slogan for casle milk stout is Good Health In Every Glass!

Many other beers are better, but if you are stuck in South Africa this will do. Have a good look for something else before you settle for a poor quality beer like this.

The first time I had a Castle Lager was in Gaborone, Botswana in 1980. I have found a beer website that I can order it. Will be fun to bring it down to the family reunion in July. Karyn

Castle is the best! Some people I've noticed have raised the Windhoek Reinheitsgebot issue a few times. Here's a true explanation of what the Reinheitsgebot means: The Reinheitsgebot was issued in 1516 as part of an attempt to protect the bakers of the time as the brewers were using a lot of wheat to make beer. You could view the Reinheitsgebot as a baker’s protection act. It also help the Bavarian authorities to regulate the brewing industry for more effective tax collection on beer. It has absolutely nothing to due with purity. This law is outdated as beer can also contain yeast if not filtered & at that time yeast was an unknown entity in the brewing process. Weisbier or wheat beer is very popular in Germany & one could argue that this beer is also not Reinheitsgebot as it contains wheat but to suggest it is not pure because of this is ridiculous. Of the top 40 brands in the world 39 are lagers, the exception being Guiness that is an Ale & only one of these 39 top lager brands is produced according to the Rienheitsgebot i.e. Becks. We add maize to all our brands except Sterling Light Lager & Pilsner Urquell, for very good reasons. Maize improves the drinkability of our beers which is much needed in a hot climate like South Africa. Maize helps with differentiation of our brands i.t.o. the brand intrinsics & as an added benefit helps with quality consistency & shelf life. Other cereals that are used world wide by brewers, besides malt & maize include barley,wheat,rice,sorghum,rye & even oats.

Castle lager is the beer that is like no ither man. whenever i at the bar i just cannot change to another beer when barman says its now out. i go home to sleep.bravo CASTLE LAGER
*****
Castle was great for me. I enjoyed the bitter taste, but don't try it warm. I could never drink it all night and after about 8 it tastes quite differant, not worth having that many. But a must with rugby and biltong. I now live where it can't be bought, and I long for it.

While I am not familiar with this beer, let me say this. If you come to the U.S. looking for a good lager, avoid the standard US and Canadian lager cat pisses.Real beer drinkers in the U.S. and Canada drink full flavored lagers and ales made by small breweries or microbreweries. We drink for taste and quality, not alchohol content. We treat good beer like a fine wine or single malt scotch. If you are in the northeast, try a Saranac Lager (NY) made from a German recipe or try Otter Creek Lager (Vermont). If you are in the midwest try Leinenkuegel or any of the midwest micro-brewed German style lagers. There are so many good beers now being made here in the States. If you're a visitor get on line and search microbreweries. They cover the entire U.S. and are making some of the best lagers and ales in the world.

South African beer for a South African thirst! Love it! There might be a few better lagers in the world but I haven't found them. Besides, I wouldn't be caught dead drinking that dodgy foreign lager from over the border (and whining on about the maize, the hangover blah blah, you know who you are). Mielies in beer! Like I said...South African.

very fine taste - very good quality and affordable

The 'full of chemicals' argument is crap. Put out by Winhoek and their fans. All the liquid in every beer in the world is a chemical. Even water has a chemical make up. The other crap argument is the "Castle gives me hangover why Winhoek doesn't". Morons - Alcohol causes the hangovers and Castle has 25% more alcohol than Windhoek. Therefore if u have 4 Castles it is the same as 5 Windhoeks.

some fast brewed cats piss, full of chemicals. Ho ever likes this doesnt know what beer is, guess you have to been brought up on this to get used to the chemicals in it. Its a chemicly speed beer, probably brewed in two or so hours. STAY AWAY FROM THIS - just uneducated south africans drinking this shit

Man Castle is the beer of beers. Ever since I come to USA, I have tried all the lagers but non I can compare to Castle Lager. I am in Iowa and Castle makes me miss home so much coz when I here the word Rugby castle comes to my mind and I miss home like no mans business. I wish I could get Castle in the USA. I get in Iowa, If I can be an agent for this beer I tell you I can do anything just to be close to Castle.
*****
I am drinking Castle now it's my fave beer . With a great taste, smooth and goes on the pallet very well. Good for watching with Rugby, Braai and everything else. Bokke is life and life is Bokke

Ek hou van black label bier. ek hou van rugby ook. Die Bokke gaan die iere op hul moere speel. Castle is okay, as die black label klaar is!!
*****
I first found castle lager on a trip to South Africa, I highly recommend it whilst doing a safari or watching the Sharks play rugby in durban. You can get it at Majestic wine warehouse in the uk and in some waitrose shops too. Its easy to drink, tasty too, brilliant lager
*****
You coe across beers every so often that all you want to do is drink them and watch rugby all day. Castle is one of them. Unfortuntely rugby lasts only 80minutes but you CAN drink castle larger all day
