180ml taster at the Clarens Beer Festival (reviewed from notes).
Served chilled in the festival tasting tulip.
I am not sure I have ever had anything made with tamarind, so this should be interesting.
Appearance: Clear golden-orange body, topped by a small white head that lasts acceptably well, but leaves no lacing.
Smell: The nose is quite sweet, with notes of caramel, cloves, sweet banana and some pale grains. I am not sure where the tamarind fits in, I thought it was meant to be tart?
Taste: Blegh, the flavour is certainly a big step down from the nose! Very little flavour, that which is present consists of stale grain, an odd sweet fruit character, a hint of spice and a horrid overripe banana aftertaste.
Mouthfeel: Light body, somewhat watery with a high level of harsh carbonation.
Overall: I must applaud SAB for trying to do something a little different, however the result is hardly any better than their standard, corn-laced, watered down lager.
Serving type: on-tap
