BEER NAME: Rooinek

BEER STYLE: Amber Ale

BREWERY: Old Potter’s Brewhouse

REGION: Greyton, Western Cape

ABV 5%

INGREDIENTS: Local sping water, barley & hops

BREWER’S NOTES: This copper-red ale is mostly about malt; in addition to our homegrown Overberg barley, we have added specially malted grains from Belgium and Germany. Te beer has a rich toffee and caramel flavour with a lasting sweet aftertaste. Hops are added in to create subtle balancing bitterness.

TASTING NOTES:

  • APPEARANCE: Deep Amber/brown, with large, dense, cream coloured head
  • AROMA: Toasted malt, toffee, caramel, slight resin and hoppy notes
  • FLAVOUR: Sweet toasted malt and biscuit with a bold bitter finish
  • MOUTHFEEL: Full bodied, creamy texture, lively carbonation, bitter finish
  • OVERALL: A great looking beer both in and out of the bottle, also delivers well on flavour with rich toasted malt, balanced off by a bold bitterness for the style.
  • PAIR WITH: Rich hard cheeses, cured meats or duck based dishes.

BREW REVIEW RATING: 8/10
