I love this stuff. Granted it might have something to do with hunting Cape
Buffalo and watching the sun go down over Lake Kariba, or sitting on the veranda
at the Vic Falls Hotel, but I'll take it over Castle any day. Try it if you have
the chance, with or without the ambiance it's excellent.

I think Zambezi is an awesome lager, Castle is quite good as well butnot as
refreshing as a Zambezi.I dont hesitate recomending it to anyone.

I drank a quantity of this beer while spending a month in westernZimbabwe on a
hunting trip. Not a wonderful lager but better than anyAmerican lager ( not much
recommendation, I know). Still, for hotweather not a bad beer if you're only
going to drink 10; plus, we ranout of Castle.

I am a Zimbo, living in Zim, Zambezi is not my beer of choice, I'dratherbrink
Bollies or Pilsner. Zambezi seems to be more of a holiday 'dop' - hence the
comments on it's refreshing qualities. Lets just hope we don't need to import
hops, Chubuku is a no no!!!

I had a Zambezi at "The Gingerman" which is a pub in Houston, Texas.The beer was
OK, but it had a strong after taste.I have had worse. It was 3.50 american for a
12 ouncebottle. Not cheap, but not expensive either.It was worth it to try
something new to me, but I wouldnot pay that much again.

Zambezi lager isn't that bad for a lager. To judge a lager incomparison to other
styles of beer is unfair. Perhaps a bit tocarbonated, this lager tastes similar
to those found in SouthernEurope. Compare it to Peroni and Morretti and I think
you'll enjoythis refreshing lager just as equally.

Easy to slam down after trekking allover the place. It seems to be available
everywhere andisn't too expensive.I thought better were the Botswana beers just
over the border (please Zimbabweans, don't hate me) - "Hansa" and "St.Louis" -

Tastes like water, but better than Zambezi river. Better drink GoldenPilsner or
Bohlinger's from the National Breweries.
