COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kooinda Boutique Brewery currently produces 400 litre batches of Hand Crafted Pale Ale using only the freshest available Hops, Barley & Yeast. The Ale is brewed in accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516, which states that only malt, water, yeast and hops can be used in brewing. Our beer is non-filtered and contains no artificial preservatives. Kooinda Pale Ale 4.7%, is a full bodied brew with a copper hue and hints of citrus in its aroma. The ale combines 3 specialty malts and finishes with a touch of bitterness on the palate. Kooinda hope to produce a Porter and Fruit beer in the near future.

Pours fairly hazy gold to amber colour. Decent head with good retention and lacing. The hop aroma doesn’t stand out like it should for an APA. Just a few resiny notes sit atop a caramel and biscuit malt aroma. Taste is quite malty for an APA, but quite nice. There is a slightly toasted flavour, but enough bitterness to finish.

Bottle from Mane Liquor, Perth. Hazy copper with a slight, off-white head. Sweet, biscuity malts, a touch f citrus hops and a slightly jarring trace of earthy cocoa. Ok.

ComradeK (1009) - The Vale of Dundas, AUSTRALIA - MAY 30, 2013
330ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium chestnut, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts fairly well but does not leave much lacing. The main notes in the aroma are biscuit and charry malt, with some mild resin hops. Fruity and resin hops introduce it, with some lime playing around the edges. Biscuit and burnt caramel malt in the mid-palate, with a touch of resin in the finish. This is a fairly simple pale ale, nice enough, but nothing too exciting.

Good solid APA. Nice aroma and lovely hop flavours, abates quickly and has a dry bitter finish. Not world beating but really enjoyable.

HopRedHead (344) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a cloudy copper with tan head. Big malty nose: sticky caramel and toast. American hops present a short resin hop aroma with a slight grapefruit back. Flavour is pretty big for a pale ale, malt really present on the tongue and hops take a backseat until the lingering bitterness. Quite well bodied for a standard pale ale, interesting take on an APA.

jmgreenuk (4251) - The Hague, NETHERLANDS - FEB 10, 2013
Now known as the Kooinda American Pale ale. Bottle at Taps Beer Bar, Kuala Lumpur. Pours a clear medium copper colour with a frothy white head. The aroma is malty with a little hoppiness in the background. The flavour is medium to strong bitter, a little malty and with lots of bitterness on the palate and in the aftertaste. A nice beer which is a little sadly all about the bitterness and not much else. We need more flavour.

Quite a sweet aroma. A little citrus and honey. Flavour follows through. An oily palette and a bittetness that starts light but builds in the aftertaste. Not bad.

barakihunter (187) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 12, 2012
Aroma is fruity from hops, appearance an opaque red-gold with good head. Taste is hoppy, balanced with malts, touch fruity and piney and a bit of citrus. Palate is mild, pleasant bitterness.
