Our flagship Pre-Prohibition style lager is inspired by the all malt beers of the early 1900s. This traditional full bodied lager achieves great balance between hop bitterness & malt sweetness. It delivers a crisp and refreshing taste that never disappoints.

This is a fantastic lager. Full bodied, rich and puts the big commercial brew fodder to shame. Bought for R13 per 340ml bottle at Ultra Liquors, Cape Town, South Africa. 5% ABV. As is typical for a lager it's filtered, has a pleasant enough nose if a little muted and uninteresting. Slightly sweet straw, earthy flavor. Light malt, little hops. Great session beer, part of my daily. Good stuff, support local and the smaller breweries!!

Golden yazy colour, clove and malty aroma. Pepper and maltiness in taste with some bitterness.

Clear golden colour. Grainy aroma, with a full bodied malt flavour. Not much bitterness. Easy drinking lager, certainly a step above the mass-produced lagers.

340ml Bottle: Pours a brilliant golden with thin white head. Lacing. Aromas of hay and biscuit. Bitterness is well balanced by the malt. Medium to light bodied, medium carbonation. Overall an easy drinking lager that has my thumbs up.

Tasting from bottle at All Points North tasting. Appearance - golden with a decent head. Nose - light bread, herbs and hop spice. Taste - more of the same. Palate - light bodied with a creamy texture and a long dry finish. Overall - decent lager. Good example of the style.

One of the pioneers in the SA craft beer scene. This all malt lager is still a favourite.
