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.

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.

hawthorne00 (2818) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - MAY 25, 2011
Bottle, batch 66. Clear amber with a dense off-white head that fades but laces well. Aroma of passionfruit, grapefruit, toffee, spices. Mouthfeel is slightly slippery. Low carbonation. Taste is fruity and moderately bitter. Toffee is slightly butterscotchish, but not much more than respectable in my book for British-style malts. Nice use of Kiwi hops - no cat. Not quite there and horrendously expensive, but quite engaging.

Davros (2323) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2011
Pours dark amber with a large, fading head. Nose shows citrus fruit along with peach, green apple and fruit sherbet. Lovely. Flavours are not as fruity, instead focussing on nutty and toasty malt. Finish is a bit weak, needs more bitterness. Could use more carbonation.

On tap at Mrs Parma’s. Unique beer, very interesting. Aromas of pistachio and caramel. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

Sevenlee (1566) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - MAR 21, 2014
Pours a hazy golden colour with an enormous white head. Aroma is malt, fruit like passion fruit with hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a bitter hop finish. Not bad.

Maris (1151) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAR 8, 2012
From a 330ml bottle on 8/3/2012 (batch no. 108). Pours an opaque dark orange with smallish bubbly head that dissipates quickly. Has a lovely fruity, floral (pollen) aroma with a touch of honey. The flavour follows suit with more fruit and honey, and some yeastiness, against a background of English style malt. The carbonation is mid to high. A nice pale ale.
