3 Bolt Pale Ale is a gold to copper coloured all malt ‘Pale Ale’ of distinct flavour and bouquet. Using premium Australian Ale malt as a base, 3 Bolt Pale is a genuine craft beer. Classic old world bittering hops impart a spice-defined tongue with floral characters, whilst the late kettle, new world aroma hops result in a pleasant citrus and pine needle nose that segues into stonefruit. A clean finish consistent with its top fermenting yeast culture, 3 Bolt Pale is a flavoursome craft ale, best drunk young and preferably in the presence of the brewer!

Davros (2408) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 17, 2015
Pours amber with a small head. Nose shows tropical fruit-like hops, including melon, mango and guava along with some heavy sweet clean malt underneath. Lots more caramel/crystal malt as a flavour too, very full-on. More fruit hops and fruit confectionery notes underneath.

From a can. This is a seriously good beer, sessionable for sure, just the right amount of hops for this style. Give it a go.
