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. scottkelly (13) - Somerset West, SOUTH AFRICA - JUN 5, 2013
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. zebonkey (2) - stellenbosch, SOUTH AFRICA - APR 11, 2014 does not count
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.

Draft at Beerhouse. Crystal clear golden color, fluffy white head. Aroma of subtle pepper and freshly cut hay. Taste is clean, crisp, lightly peppery, quick finish. Very tasty. BeerLieutenant38 (156) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 16, 2017
Clear golden appearance, crisp flavor and nice hop bitterness to the finish. Always deliciously refreshing, this has been a ’go to’ beer for me in the last couple of years. Art (3219) - 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. deft (84) - SWEDEN - OCT 28, 2013
Labeled CBC Classic lager, 44 cl bottle. Clear light golden, nice lasting white head. Some light hops in aroma, a bit sugary, some herb, very light caramel notes. Taste has nice maltiness, hay, a bit sweet, butterscotch note. Nice fullness in palate, high carbonation. HULK777 (626) - - 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.
