UPDATED: DEC 30, 2014 On tap at CBC Spice Route. Clean and fresh though not a lot happening. Would prefer a stronger hop punch. But very easy to drink.

shadylane (4) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 5, 2014 does not count
Bottle. Pours brilliantly clear with a decent, lasting head/good lacing. Pleasant noble hop aroma - piney, grassy, spicy with a slight fruitiness. Assertive woody, grassy, slightly fruity hop flavour giving way to solid malt flavours and finishing quite dry. Fairly high carbonation clearing the palate. Overall - Well balanced and highly drinkable.
