Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - June - Winter is here

Good people of craft beer, winter is here and with it comes the phenomena known as
Standby Mode. For the next couple of months, Nature compels us to buy a new pair of
stokies and power down into the loving embrace of the couch. It’s the season of potjies,
fireplaces and binge-watching series. As awesome as this sounds, Standby Mode can get in
the way of you and great craft beer. Luckily, this is where we come. Every month, we deliver
an epic selection of craft beer to your house, and we don’t mind if you answer the door in
stokies. In fact, we encourage it so couch hard my friends.

While you’re chilling on the couch this month, why not snap a pic of your brew and post it on
social media? It’s what all the cool kids are doing these days and we have some of the
coolest @TastingLeague. Every month our diehard fans post beer pics, reviews and there is
always a chance to win League of Beers vouchers. Join us online @TastingLeague on
Twitter, Instagram and Facebook. Until next month, cheers and here’s to great craft beers!

Darling Brew Blood Serpent Export Lager 330ml

No reviews yet - Write the first review

Just like the Blood Serpent, its inspiration, the Secretary Bird, is unique not only for its name. It stands out because of its distinct profile, quite unlike that of any other bird - or beer. It is a Hallertauer Mittelfrüh dry hop lager with spicy flavours and undertones of grass.

  • An unfiltered light amber lager
  • Light beige head
  • Aroma is of floral honey combined with a subtle spiciness
  • On the first sip hops spreads through the mouth engulfing everything for the first second, it is then overshadowed by the solid malt backbone

Zwakala Brewery Naked Ale

5.0 stars from 1 review - Write your review

This Naked Blonde Ale is one sexy looking beer. It is crisp and dry with a low bitterness and good aromas from the hops as well as some sweetness from the malts. The perfect beer for a Summer's day.

  • Natural amber ale
  • Made from Barley, hops, pure mountain water and yeast
  • A crisp and dry beer with a sweetness from the malts

  • Malt: pale malt, flaked oats, wheat malt, carapils, melanoidin, lactose

CBC is known for their huge hop aroma and this brew is no exception. 

  • Aroma consists mainly of citrus (grapefruit and lemon) and tropical fruits
  • Flavour profile of ripe fruits, citrus and pine
  • Big bitterness with an understated malt character, generally on the sweeter and grainy side to contrast the hoppy flavours
  • Dry on the finish, this lets the hop aromas and flavours be the focus
  • Dry hopped to add extra flavour and aroma
