2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Light amber colour. The aroma is soft, malty bitter. Light body, soft, very English with a malty character, touch of diacetyl and a creamy cask finish. Underhopped, though.
340ml Bottle: Pours a clear light amber with zero head. Aroma of toast, caramel and honey. Tastes a little sweet with medium bitterness. Medium bodied, low carbonation. Overall an easy drinking beer that is well balanced and full of flavour. Speensalf (1) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 19, 2017 does not count
Unfiltered, natural carbonation. Awesome! Beautiful well rounded palate. Perfect session beer. Holmen2 (3642) - NORWAY - MAR 14, 2015
From tap at Gilroy’s Brewery in Gauteng, South Africa, 14.03.15. Dark gold. Small head. Fruity aroma and taste, with low bitterness. Low carbonation. Good drinkability. Splitenz (370) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAY 10, 2014
Strong on the nose, weak on the tongue. A fine drinking Ale, with enough hops to make it easy and, Belgian (?) style yeast. werner22 (6) - SOUTH AFRICA - MAR 10, 2014 does not count
This is a strong aroma beer. But very smooth and not as heavy. No heart burn or hang over

340 ml, poured. Beershine (5224) - VANCOUVER, British Columbia, CANADA - OCT 17, 2012
Draft at brewpub. Amber with scattered lace
Bland nutty malt aroma with late plastic. The palate is oily and laden with butter but yields to a toffee and lightly toasted malt finish
Papsoe (25063) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 22, 2008
(On tap) Beautiful clear amber colour with a small, off-white head. Sweetish aroma of caramel, fruit and nuts. Medium body, a little low in carbonation with sweetish - almost exotic - fruit accents. Smooth and lightly hoppy finish. 040508 mojoharper (32) - SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 8, 2008
Bottle: Amber with fluffy, but white, minimal head. Yeasty, fruit aroma. Biscuit and subtle fruit tastes with a good, dry finish. Somewhat "thin", could do with more body.
