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.

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

jmgreenuk (7835) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - NOV 28, 2015
Draft at Taps Beer Bar, Changkat, Kuala Lumpur. Poured a hazy medium amber with a frothy white head and a little broken lace. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a fresh grassy hop citrus, light yeast, light pine needle palate. Medium bodied with average carbonation. Super fresh and tasty.

Muggus69 (2137) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - NOV 21, 2015
Draught @ Brewhouse 69, Sale, Victoria Deep clean golden beer, creamy white head. Good nose - grainy biscuity toasty malts in good measure pave way for solid citrus, grass & tropical fruity hops. Medium body, nice creaminess to it, moderate carbonation. Plenty of flavour - citrusy, vinous fruity hops, good malt notes of biscuity & toasty. Moderate-high bitterness, excellent balance. Solid APA, tasty!

Pyobon (1312) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 8, 2015
(Bottle) Hazy amber with stupid quantity of head - took two pint glasses to pour 500ml. Nice fresh pine aroma with hints of pepper. Medium bodied with good smooth carbonation. Nice well balanced taste. Plenty of fresh fruity flavours over so e subtle biscuity malt at the start with some good bitterness developing late in the finish. Very pleasant - after an annoying pour.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber golden with a foamy white head. Appealing to the eyes. Well carbonated and medium bodied for a pale ale. Aroma is very fruity; largely citrus, pine, passionfruit and grapefruit, including some of the bitter bitter citrus peel. Taste has a surprising level of malt character that the aroma did not elude to. Some biscuity character that helps balance the large hop character. Zesty and acidic fruit finish. Great.
