Beerclubsa (65) - Strand, SOUTH AFRICA - SEP 4, 2016
Pours a crystal clear gold with a rocky white head with good retention. Aromas of grainy sweet malt and some earthy/herby hops. Flavor is grainy-sweet cracker-like malts upfront with a solid earthy hop bitterness to finish. Medium light body, high carbonation. Still my favorite local pilsner.

Turtles (1981) - Stockholm, SWEDEN - MAR 4, 2016
440ml bottle from Systembolaget, Borlänge. Clear pale golden, large white head, requires several pours in the glass, good lacing. Nothing too much going on in the smell or taste. Grainy and bready, some grass, very mild bitterness.

AntonyWilson (128) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 1, 2016
440ml Bottle Appearance: Pours a light, golden colour. Sparkling with a persistent white head. Good lacing. Aroma: Slightly metallic, bready, malty, fruity esters. Taste: Slightly sweet, average bitterness with malty, bready notes. Mouthfeel: Clean and crisp, good carbonation and a medium body. Overall: Easy drinking, would prefer some more bitterness and possibly some cara malts.
