Beerclubsa (93) - 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.

UPDATED: JUN 28, 2013 Excellent Pilsner although I’m not a big Pilsner drinker. The aroma is ok. The beer has a low to medium body. You can taste the hop bitterness throughout, but much more at the end. Leaves you wanting another sip.

A very nice birthday gift from CBC’s brewer Wolfgang. Even though Lager is not my favorite style. But this one for sure is one of the better Lagers.

shadylane (5) - 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.

Art (3151) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - JAN 4, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 6, 2016 Taster at Beerhouse. Pours a clear pale golden yellow. Aromas of hay and grape. Fruity yeast esters. Taste is sweet up front with a crisp finish. Not a bad pils.

HULK777 (556) - - SEP 27, 2013
Beautiful color and nice crown. Aroma containing butterscotch, honney, and grassy notes. Nice, clean taste. A bit soft and sticky on the palate, and the aftertaste is very short, although some bitterness still lingers.
