Pours pale yellow/golden with little head, quickly dissipating. Little aroma of sweet malt. Flavor is light malt, a bit sweet. Fairly carbonated. Very easy to drink. Good for the style. Good for South Africa.

dimeon (467) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 4, 2017
A: Pours dark straw with a thin white head N: Slightly sweet malts T: Nice balance for a lager. Bitter noble hops and a full, malty mouthfeel. F: Medium length and bitterness O: One of the better craft lagers in the market.

Bottle shared with JMD at HNB. Foamy and uneven off-white head. Fine lacing. Aroma of noble pilsner hops and slightly caramelized malt. Malt in aftertaste. A lovely and well-balanced pilsner, with pronounced taste of malt, balanced with hops and bitterness. High quaffability!

Holmen1 (6476) - Stavanger, NORWAY - APR 2, 2015
Flaske fra Ovesens håndimport, på Holmens påskeaktivitetsdag: klar gylden med tett hvitt skum som varer. Edelhumlearoma og raffinert smak med blomstereng i beste mellomeuropeiske stil. Elegant balansert ettersmak. Nr.9 til å rate denne.

South Africa has a fair share of uninspired craft lagers, but this one is impressive. Pours a deep clear golden with small white carbonating head. Lacing too. Aroma is floral and spicy noble hops and some cardboard. Nice palate. Aftertaste is a solid floral hop bite for a lager. Overall: Very nice. Clean, good presentation and nice hop balance.

Draught at The Foundry, Johannesburg
Pale blond color. It’s a dry beer, with corn character. Bad.

This a pretty fine lager and superior to anything available from its bigger South African bullies. I have had both kegged and bottled versions. The kegged version had a great formy head which held up almost all the way to the end of the glass leaving a nice lace behind. Much more malty than expected, almost akin to a Munich Hellas than a traditional SA lager. Starts off a little sweet, finishing quite dry. Light floral hops. Will definitely be quaffing this more :)

Very weak beer in taste and flavour. Pale ale and ok in very small doses. Cheap and cheerful

Papsoe (25056) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 24, 2008
(Bottle 34 cl) Pours a clear, deep golden with a small, white head. Lightly tart aroma and some floral accents. Medium body with a good malt feel and a distinct touch of aroma hops before a short, dry finish. The beer has an underlying tartness that is acceptable as of now, but I doubt it will be by expiry date July 08. However you do get the feeling of better raw materials in this one. 170508
