COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A modern twist on the classic pale ale. Bucket loads of Nelson Sauvin hops are added late in the boil to create the Cavalier Pales signature flavour. Bold grapefruit and passionfruit from the hops are supported by a firm but not overwhelming malt backbone. Special attention has been paid so that there is no harsh bitterness from the hops, finishing off a refreshing and easy drinking beer.

On tap at Dejavu. Pours a light amber colour with a small head. The aroma is a mixture of passionfruit,pine, grapefruit and honey. Taste has hints of grapefruit and the balance of malts and hops comes into play. Very smooth and sessionable beer. This beer is very clean and easy drinking...will be on this baby in the summer time

My favourite of the cavalier range. A good Pale that is easily sessionable.

Thereís a really nice balance between malt and hops in this beer - itís a very clean, easy drinking beer thatís closer to an IPA than a pale ale in my books. The aroma is a mixture of pine, grapefruit and honey with some very subtle bread late in the piece. On the tongue, thereís plenty going on with grapefruits spilling over the side, malt settling at the front and a little pine needles and spearmint travelling a good way down the throat.

A nice pale ale with a twist. The grapefruit flavour is nice and not overwhelming. The diversity of taste is great but a strangely enough a little blend in the end

Bottle. Hazy, slightly brownish amber pour with a short, lasting beige head. Aroma is hoppy but relatively mild and has notes of mango, grapefruit, orange, green apple and caramel. Flavour is very similar to the aroma but the fruitiness is more pronounced, leaning heavily on the citrus, and there is a slight mineral undertone. Mouthfeel is light and creamy with lively carbonation and a fresh hoppy, mildly bitter finish that lingers a little. Not the most typical example of the style but quite pleasant and highly sessionable.

UPDATED: JUN 16, 2012 Bottle from Mane Liquor. Very zesty and citrus forward pale. Unusual. Works well and is enjoyable. Super sessionable. Nice

330mL bottle, pours a dark caramel colour with lasting head and an amazing sweet grapefruit aroma wow.. The grapefruit does come through to the flavour and a light bitterness that makes it so easy to drink. Carbonation is spot on and it has a medium body. Iím really impressed by the 2 cavalier beers i have but this beer is the stand out.. god i hope they do an IPA.

330ml bottle. Lots of foam in the initial pour, big and rocky. Vibrant orange colour and a really smooth mouthfeel. Flavour is full with very little bitterness. I think this is the best of the 3 beer I have had from Cavlier.
