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!

mcberko (14396) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 13, 2016
On tap at Green Beacon, pours a clear yellow blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out crisp biscuity malt and light piney hopping. Flavour is along the same lines, with light dry piney hops and biscuity malt. Nicely balanced, with a clean, dry finish. Decent pale.

Jado (773) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - NOV 10, 2015
355 ml can. Clear honey-amber topped with a tight white head that leaves good lacing. Aromas of stone fruit, citrus, flowers and honey. Flavour of citrus is prominent up front with grass and pepper in the mid palate. Smooths out to soft fruit flavours at the end leading into a moderately bitter finish. Well made and approachable American style pale.

ANZUShophunter (280) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2015
On tap at brewery. Leaning toward a bronze hue with floral and citrus notes from a nice hoppy nose. A zesty mix of hop and malt on the palate. An enjoyable APA whether the first "A" is American or Aussie.

Davros (2782) - 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.
