2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap @ Lucky Labrador. Clear golden colored beer with a white head. A strong popcorn and crackery malt aroma. Grassy hops, some mild citrus, and a bit of a floral note. There’s kind of a perfumey thing to the flavor. Strong floral notes and grass. Too much popcorn for my liking. Meh.

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
On tap at Lucky Labrador, pours a clear golden with a small white head. Aroma of zesty citrus notes, some spice, and biscuity malt. Flavour reveals an astringent citrus hop component with some mild off-flavours. Not very complex nor refined. Decent, but not overly drinkable.

Pale straw colour. Lingering sticky lace. The nose is lightly hopped with just a touch of lemon and some soft spice. Almost wheaty malt component as well. Delicate and balanced.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Surprising. Draught. Poured orange yellow with medium white head. Aroma of citrus and flowers. Full satisfying hoppy flavour with a malty tinge. Floral finish. This might be another of Hennie’s Cape ales.

3.2 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On-Tap @ Bailey’s Taproom poured into Shaker glass.
Pours a crystal clear golden color with a bubbly white head that quickly dissolves and leaves a light ring around the glass. The aroma is noble earthy hops and sweet malts (maybe honey?) The flavor is malt forward followed by a clean presence of earthy hops. It has a soft sweet bitterness and is semi-dry. Its light bodied and has lively carbonation. Nice light body makes for easy drinking. But it may come across as being a little earthy.

I think the whole schtick with this beer is that it was one of the first produced at the brewery after solar panels were installed, hence a solar powered beer from the growing of the grains to the actually heat for brewing. Light session beer, with a nice subdued hop flavor to round out. Sweet.
