UPDATED: DEC 2, 2013 Initial 7/14/2010: Pours hazy amber with quickly dissipating white head. Aroma of light hops, malt. Tastes of pineapple upfront, almost acidic, and yeast. Overall very drinkable.
11/15/2013: Bottle from Monty’s Liquor Boutique on 11/15/13. Pours a cloudy golden, loose, off white head that dissipates rather quickly. Nose yeasty, grass, faint hops, some dark fruit. Taste is yeast upfront, grass, earthy, a sort of smokiness reminiscent of bbq or charred meat, followed by a slight hop bitterness. The smokiness isn’t like a smoked ale, much more faint than that and bit different. Leaves you with the smokiness and bitterness in your mouth. Mostly smoke. Mouthfeel is slightly viscous. A good deal of yeast sediment left in the bottle. Overall a pretty good beer but the smoke flavor is sort of odd, but not bad.
Appearance: bright amber with good bubbles and lasting head
Aroma: hops, grassy, hay
Mouthfeel: medium full, smooth, medium carbonation
Taste: malt, slightly spicy, light bitterness but not sweet. Spiciness on the aftertaste
Overall: really good ale. Wpuld drink this again AntonyWilson (350) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - FEB 15, 2016
UPDATED: APR 17, 2016 500ml Bottle: Appearance: Pours a cloudy light golden with a minimal white head, good lacing.Aroma: Floral hops, sourness, hay.Taste: Medicinal, high bitterness, not pleasant.Mouthfeel: Medium body, low carbonation. Finishes very bitter and astringent.Overall: Not a nice ale, definitely infected. Happy to re-rate, but not on my account. Re-rated the beer, no difference I’m afraid. Perhaps it’s supposed to taste like that????? jmgreenuk (9326) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - MAR 21, 2015
Cask at the Pump House, Solihull. Poured a crystal clear medium amber with a thin white head and a few bubbles. The aroma is light malt hop. The flavour is moderate bitter with smooth light malt, light floral hop bitter palate. Medium bodied with soft carbonation. Became a little sickly after a while. Would not want to be drinking a pint of this. Cunningham (7861) - Halden, NORWAY - MAR 15, 2015
Almost clear golden color with a fine white head. Malty, a bit citric and some weird notes in the aroma. Medium body. Moderate sweet and an ok bitterness. Malty, mild citric, herbal and some chemical notes. Not very good this one.nihtila (3603) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 14, 2015

Aroma has caramel sweet malts, exotic fruits. Tastes grapefruit, pinapple, bitterish finish.

Weak aroma with a pretty nice malty taste. Not so much hops. Nice creamy head and good looks doesn’t help much when the overall impression is slightly below average. Won’t have this again. WhoU (125) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - AUG 2, 2014
Bottle Jhb. Pours semi clear yellow light orange with medium head and carbonation. Aroma is hop with pine. Taste is hoppy bitter. Mouthfeel is light. Overall not as aromatic or hoppy bitter as my favourite IPAs but best of the robsons so far. Beerhunter111 (20360) - P´Castle, GERMANY - MAR 24, 2014
Goldenes Bier mit schöner Schaumkrone. Geruch malzig hopfig, fruchtig herb. Geschmack hopfig bitter, exotische Früchte, fruchtig malzig. aleksander9 (1673) - Oslo, NORWAY - MAR 22, 2014
Gusher. Pours clear golden with a gigantic head that resemble washing foam. Aroma is floral hops, spice, citrus, some vinegar and some sour green apples. Mouth feel is round and fruity with spritzy carbonation. Aftertaste is green apples, vinegar, spice, some sweet malt, some metal and lasting hop dry finish. Overall: very nice. A lot of faults in this one. But, the faults actually compliment the beer. Well done. King_Dean (63) - SOUTH AFRICA - JUL 17, 2013
Pale gold pour. Thickish white head. Tart and yeasty on the tongue with lively carbonation.
