UPDATED: JUL 3, 2013 Plastic bottle at home. Shared with Mathieu87.
Appearance: lightly clouded blonde/amber beer, unstable white head.
Nose: strawberry ícoulisí, caramel, some hops, malts, little spices maybe.
Taste: sugar, almost like drinking pure brown sugar, lots of malts.
It could be deteriorated by the travel from South Africa!

I had this on tap at Mitchells in Cape Town. I really didnít think this was very good. Not much flavour and something off about the flavour that was there.

Pours slightly cloudy amber colour. Little head. Nondescript nose though slightly sour. Medium palate low carbonation. Predominantly sour taste upfront and back of palate. Almost tastes infected if not intended

On tap at brewpub. Possibly infected which is pretty inexcusable at their own pub. Distinct sour taste which was not mentioned in the description which makes me think it was not intended . Medium orange body. Citrus lactose and smoke as well as the sourness. I like sour ales but only if they are made that way.

Nice aroma of some spices and fudge. Similar taste with some bitterness added. Low carbonation which is fitting.

0.6 AROMA 1/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 1/10 PALATE 1/5 OVERALL 1/20
Deep copper color with weird big off-white bubbles. Aroma is battery acid, spice and roasted malt. Very tart and acidic oily mouth feel with high carbonation. Extremely tart, sour and dry finish. Overall: poured down the drain. Horrible. Second infected beer from this brewery. Disappointing

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Very attractive dark copper ale with a chalk white head. Aroma is of chestnuts and autumnal leaves, with sweet malts and slight ginger and watermelon jam thing going on. Soft malts and warm spices in the mouth. The hops come through with a bitter end that prevents things from getting cloying. Quite surprised by this one - perhaps the move to glass bottles has signaled a sea change for the 90 Shilling. Itís pretty delicious. Creamy mouth feel and a return to the lingering malt spice and orange peel. Enjoyable easy-drinker.
