Craft Beer Tasting Notes

This Month's Mixed Case - September - Cheers to Spring!

September is here and that means one thing, it’s almost spring! Yes, yes, we know that technically 1 September is Spring Day but come on, who are we kidding. It’s still cold apart from the odd sunny day when everyone tweets that spring has arrived only to be disappointed when it’s cold the next day. In reality, spring actually starts on 23 September with the Vernal Equinox when the sun is exactly above the equator. What does this have to do with beer, you ask? Well, nothing in particular but it does make for good beer conversation when you’re cheersing to Spring Day.

Be sure to join the beery conversation online this September @TastingLeague on all social media platforms. We’ll have our usual crew chatting all things beer and running competitions. If beer photography is your thing, then why not get out in amongst the spring flowers and snap a few shots to celebrate the season? Until next month, here’s to sunny skies and chilly beers!

Two Rand Man Irish Red Ale, 440ml

No reviews yet - Write the first review

Dancing between the cars clad in rags and packets, performing pirouettes. The Two Rand Man brightened many a dull morning for PE locals with his antics. He would only ever seek two rand for his performances, anything more, or less was not acceptable. Immortalizing him in a beer requires the rich caramel and toffee flavours of this Irish red ale to compliment his lively persona. With each sip the memory of the Two Rand Man lives on

  • Appearance: Copper-brown with a cream head 
  • Aroma: Hefty caramel and toffee aromas
  • Flavour: Rich caramel malt and sweet toffee with a touch of chocolate
  • Mouthfeel: Surprisingly light to medium-bodied considering the punchy flavours

Lakeside Supernova Porter, 330ml

A well-balanced brewskie that hits with a glorious caramel-coffee-toffee malty flavour. You can bet your fun socks this Porter style beer’s unlike anything you’ve ever had. It’s dark, it’s delicious, its creamy head lingers like the last person wanting to leave a party - and after a few of these, you could be.

  • Appearance: Black-brown with a tan head
  • Aroma: Intense roasty notes with some coffee and caramel 
  • Flavour: Roasted malt and toasty bread with a touch of caramel and dark chocolate
  • Mouthfeel: Medium-bodied and silky smooth with good carbonation

Jack Black's Wolves of Winter Stout, 340ml

Roasted malts form the backbone of this pitch dark, rich and robust stout. Generous oatmeal and hop additions add great complexity and balance to this heartwarming beer. Best served and savoured, fire-side. A once-off batch of their much anticipated Oatmeal Stout.

  • Appearance: Deep black with a mottled tan head
  • Aroma: Roasted malt and dark fruit
  • Flavour: Deliciously dark malts bursting with coffee, fruit, dark chocolate and cherry flavours
  • Mouthfeel: Smooth and medium in body with even carbonation
