340ml bottle pours a pale amber colour with a finger of white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is caramel with some light fruits and earthy and grassy notes. Taste is a caramel malty sweetness with a grassy and earthy hop bitterness. Light to medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Not quite sure where this one lies, seems more like an amber than a brown ale, but barely, but still a decent, drinkable brew.

Tim Webb (426) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JAN 16, 2017
34 cl bottle at Ginja in Cape Town. A relaunch I assume - new label. 5.5% ABV. Says "serve chilled" on the bottle but better at room temperature in my limited experience. Would pass as a northern English "double brown" ale. A bit carameled, English tasting hops, slightly too much attenuation but none of the flaws detailed below by others.

On tap in Stellenbosch. Light brown colour with a loose white head. Lots of big bubble carbonation. Fairly weak body, but relatively refreshing. Slightly sour. Unexciting.

On tap at Cape Town Festival of Beer 2013. Pours brown, with slight head that fades quickly with minimal lace. Roasty medium.

aleksander9 (1488) - Oslo, NORWAY - NOV 15, 2013
Murky brown with fizzy head that disappears completely after one minute. Aroma is horrible, just loads of rotten green apples and battery oil. Mouth feel is sour with stingy carbonation. Aftertaste is more green apples with burnt citrus. Overall: Obviously infected stuff. Hope its only my bottle and not the entire batch. Poured down the drain.

Sweet caramel, and delicate balance of floral hop. Slight biscuity notes to the malt. Nice beer.
