Mitchell’s had two locations in Cape Town and Knysna that were unrelated.
From 2007 however all brewing are done in Knysna, also supplying the waterfront bar in Cape Town.
A heavy spicy ale, with gloriously round, full palate. Let this traditional Scottish Ale take you back in time as you savour the complex aromatic notes and full - bodied amber glow. Do, however treat it with respect!

Bottled. A hazy dark amber beer with a thin brown head. The aroma is sweet malty with notes of caramel. The flavor is sweet malty again with strong caramel notes, leading to a bitter end, that also as a twang of metal.
