COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
3 Ravens 55 is an American style Pale Ale, first brewed on our 5th Birthday. Five assertive hops meet a blend of barley, corn, wheat oats and rye. Floral aromatics lead to a structured maltiness and clean finish. Traditional bottle conditioning naturally carbonates this beer and helps to its complexity.Engineered by hand, this beer is the product of a craft brewing process in which traditional methods meet exacting standards. We take care to emphasize quality of quantity and to use only the finest natural ingredients.

Looks a treat.Poured a mahogany amber with a nice dense head. A bit over carbonated. Floral and citrus on the nose, but muted. In the mouth ii is med to full bodied with a light to medium hop bite. A bit subdued for what they are aiming for. Solid.

330 ML bottle Orange amber color, light tan head, good retention to the head. Good looking in the glass. Nose is bread, orange, caramel, and chalk. Orange is more orange blossom than peel. Taste is very chalky. Decent orange blossom but a lot of chalk to offset it. Bitterness is even chalky. Finishes clean, with some orange and grapefruit bitterness but still a lot of chalk. Medium bodied, prickly carbonation. Another pale Ale

mattyhennessy (342) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - APR 13, 2014
Pours a golden copper with a thin white head. Strong citrus/grapefruit aroma that suggests a sweet finish. Moderate malt backbone with high hop usage. The hop choice is rather mild in.flavour though so it is not overpowering. Pine, citrus and grapefruit flavours match the sweet malt. Very sessionable

Bottle. Good malt profile with solid bitterness. The bottle was a bit old so I’m sure the aroma is meant to be a little stronger, but overall it was rather pleasant

Rosslew (252) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 22, 2014
Pours a nice copper colour. Generous taste of grapefruit and nice and malty from start to finish. Wonderful finish with even a splash of orange tang at end. Very much in American style. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

ALLOVATE (2467) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2014
Very Summery in appearance; a radiant orange gold with a tight, thin layer of foam atop that holds. Heady, spicy, pine-needle dominated nose; resinous with a lot of damp, green herbs coming through. Generously hopped and dominatingly so. The body is quite light, malt profile low and fruit esters restrained. Bold bitterness to the finish that lasts. Grassy, weedy and herbaceous with a lingering note of pine and nettles. Overall dry, with a hint of rose petals. I dig it for its raw hopping, and it is actually a very sessionable number. Not too bad a beer. Would love to try it on draught for a comparison. (33cL, no date stamp, Cellarbrations Carlisle)

330mL bottle. Pours clear golden with a small white head and a wonderful punchy grapefruit/piney aroma. Very clean piney citrus flavour with a generous sweet caramel malt backing. Medium body with average carbonation. Very nice IMO.
