AntonyWilson (321) - Johannesburg, SOUTH AFRICA - MAY 18, 2017
330ml Bottle: Pours a hazy amber with thin off-white head. Aromas of caramel, brown sugar and chocolate. Amazing flavours of caramel, fruit and spicy hops one would expect from an english brewed ale. Medium bodied, medium to low carbonation, medium to low bitterness. Overall a really great example of an english brown ale, brewed right here in RSA. Lovely.

Red amber with small white head. Malty aroma. Smooth flavour with a fairly bitter finish. Its a really nice easy drinking ale.

hrabren (1173) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 20, 2017
Huge thanks to Goran for bringing this from South Africa. Shared with him and Vinja 666. Murky amber, minimal white head. Malty, light fruity, light hoppy, slightly off. No profile, light dry. Medium body, medium carbonation, moderate finish. Nothing special.

DuffMan (10139) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAR 13, 2017
Bottle. Medium sienna hue, extremely carbonated, but the head settles nicely into a creamy eggshell layer. Aroma is bready and lightly toasty. Flavours follow suit, with nuances of nuts and floral honey. Gassy, but not bad.

reebtogi (6204) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - FEB 3, 2017
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 (438) - 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.

DKL (46) - NEW ZEALAND - JAN 30, 2014
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.

WhoU (125) - Cape Town, SOUTH AFRICA - DEC 4, 2013
On tap at Cape Town Festival of Beer 2013. Pours brown, with slight head that fades quickly with minimal lace. Roasty medium.

aleksander9 (1606) - 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.
