Around The World In 80 Beers episode 176: The Australian Pale Ale

The Australian Pale Ale

Pours a very pale, slightly cloudy straw colour with a large head. A lot of carbonation visible in the glass (read: fizzy)

First Sip: Rather a lot of citrus, particularly grapefruit, and mild bready malts. There is a long lasting, very mild hops bitterness. Mouth-feel is thin and a little gassy.

Having said that, I would most definitely drink this again. It's highly refreshing, and would make an excellent hot day brew; certainly better than the usual macro-swill on offer here. The grapefruit taste is a bit of a shock at first but I got used to it quickly and could continue getting used to it. It's called "The Australian Pale Ale" but it is an American Pale Ale, using Australian hops. This is a Nice Beer. DOES NOT REQUIRE CHEESE!

... I've looked at their website. I must go here.
