Name: Mandarina Bavaria IPA
Country: South Africa
Rating: 3/ 5
This beer was very citrusy (hence the Mandarin..) and very bitter. It took me 3 or 4 good sips to have the flavour settle down. It’s definitely a naartjie flavour. Or naartjie and lemon rind put together.
But the hop profile is great, and the citrus rind bitterness makes this a very crisp bitter beer. Plus, the bottle design is amazing. CBC make really great beer, and this is no exception. It’s not something I’d drink a lot of, but I’d have it again for sure.
