COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Dad & Dave’s #1 Pale Ale is a simple full flavoured beer derived from 100% Australian malted barley. Hops grown in Nelson, New Zealand impart “fruitiness” typical of Sauvignon Blanc grape varieties with passionfruit aromas with a crisp finish. English Ale yeast is also used to bring out the natural sweetness of the malt and hops. The #1 is suitable for most occasions being light enough to enjoy with a light lunch or evening drinks but having enough flavour to stand up to curries or red meat.

highlandlad (1413) - Blue Mountains, - JAN 21, 2014
A pale ale as humble and homely as the name suggests. It’s clean and simple but I’m not sure the malt-hop pairing is ideal. Don’t like the carbonation, either. Cloudy gold with a thin, abrupt head. Aroma of peaches, lemon barley water, walnuts and yeast. The mouthfeel is too hard and fizzy for the style - less might be more. Some English nuttiness to the Old world malts that doesn’t quite gel with the New World NZ hops. Grapefruit acids in a reasonably bitter finish. Fairly sweet. (330ml bottle from Wentworth Falls bottlo)

Tasted at Canberra Small Brewers Beer Festival. Pale gold/straw, sweet bready malt, mild bitterness, slightly grassy, citrusy. Nothing special, but easy drinking session beer I imagine.

KeefOz (849) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2013
Poured a clear very light straw yellow colour with a one- to two-finger white foamy head that retained OK and laced OK. Initially had high carbonation with large bubbles forming trails but this faded quickly to low carbonation. Aroma of sweet malt. Taste is slightly sweet with no bitterness. Light body. Smooth, crisp finish. An easy drinking larger (not what I’d call a pale ale).

On the board was marked to be 4.5% ABV.
Clear straw yellow color, dense white head. Malty, herbal, hoppy, fresh taste. Served (very) cold into a chilled glass. Fizzy mouthfeel, low bitterness. Herbal, hoppy aftertaste. Mild, herbal, hoppy scent.

Maris (966) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 8, 2013
From a 330ml bottle on 8/5/2013. pours a clear, very light golden with a medium head. Has an aroma of bready malt and a little bit of fruit. The flavour features sweet bready malt and a little bit of citrus (lemon). Finishes with a moderate bitterness. The body is light and the carbonation medium. A passable pale ale but not much more.

Very light Pale Ale. Borderline Blonde beer. Easy to drink though. Nice one.
