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.

Hazt amber colour, quite highly carbonated for this style. Thick white head. Fruity aroma and a bitter, tart taste with hints of the aforementioned fruit. Quite nice.

On tap at Mrs Parmaís. 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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
