Red colour. There’s a lot of rich amber maltiness on the nose. Same palate, soft and with light juiciness.

2.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 11/20
330ml Bottle: Pours a crystal clear amber with thin tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma of caramel with some notes of toasted malt. Beer finishes sweet with little to no bitterness. Low carbonation, however, there is a honey-like note on flavour. Overall a little sweet, but nice flavours.

From tap at Gilroy’s Brewery in Gauteng, South Africa, 14.03.15. . Nutty brown. Aroma and taste of medium dark malt, dark syrup and roasted nuts. Good drinkability.

On tap at the Gilroy’s brewpub. Can not get used to Gilroy’s flat beers. Palate: light body, thin feel, flat. Also definitely not an "explosion of flavours". Too sweet.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
A good dark amber beer with floral aroma and a good fairly strong taste. Malty and not as strong in the hops as one may have wanted, leading to a bit of a watery mouth feel. Still, a good beer to drink through the South African night.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at the brewpub.
Nice red color with even, short, stable, and loose head. Fruity (plum and apple skin) malt aroma with an old ale twist
The malt character shines, and continues to resemble old ale, with some bread and a little butter too but in check. Late bubble gum, bazooka. True to style. Here, the nitro actually works.
