Draught. Poured dark amber with thick white head. Beers from Lucky Labrador always look good. Restrained hop aroma, there was a bit of chocolate, but perhaps too restrained. Flavour was good, malt and hop in well balance, with ’n bietjie chocolate. Long hop finish.

This is a great ale. The flavors where a good mix between malts and hops. Had a nice Hoppy taste in the end and it gave off a great overall drinking ability. Good Beer.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
This was a decent little pale ale, not fantastic, slightly imbalanced, but easy to drink with some nice acidic grapefruit tones, some grass and bready notes, with a bit of a bite on the finish. Not bad.
