COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This beer is a pale ale, honey like in colour.We have used hops which present a citrus character particularly late in the boil as well as dry hoping during fermentation. This beer packs a fresh hop punch, best enjoyed “after battle” or “a hard days work”.
The ABV (Alcohol by Volume) ranges between 5.5% and 5.8%.
The IBU (International Bittering Units) are around the 40IBU mark.
Available in 330mL and 650mL bottles also 19ltr and 50ltr kegs.
This beer is both unfiltered and unpasteurised. We also use only natural ingredients including malt, hops, yeast and water.

bluebetty (1019) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2011
On tap at Paddy’s. Pours a light golden amber a small dense white head. Nice looking beer. Decent hop aromas up front. Simcoe’s in particular seem to dominate with lots of grapefruit and resiny pine. Nice sweet caramel in support. Flavours are nicely balanced with the caramel sweetness nicely offset by the resiny hop finish. Medium mouthfeel. Good beer.

hawthorne00 (2371) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle, handwritten date is appreciated - 3 weeks old and half of that was a my place. Clear pale amber with a white head. Aroma of kumquats, lime, mango, grass, a little caramel, pine. Light bodied, getting towards watery. OTOH, it’s very soft in the mouth. Carbonation is gentle. Bright fruity flavours - citrus and supporting tropical - a little pine in a bitter finish that creeps up a bit. Agreeable low-key beer that hits the spot pretty well.

imaragingbull (570) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2012
Bottle. Pours lightly hazed orange gold with big tight creamy off white head. Off-beat mix of aromas close, but distant to your typical APA aroma showcasing - lemons, lime, pine, other orange citrus, grain, light malt, earthen yeast, dough. Light medium body, med-high carbonation, generous bitterness - light hop flavour, but refreshing nature finishing with a light grassy pine citrus with a balance of the malt.
