COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Kosciuszko Brewery encompasses the spirit and the inspiration of the Snowy Mountains. The pioneering explorer, Edmund Strzelecki who first ascended our highest peak, named the mountain in honour of the Polish freedom fighter Kosciuszko. We are exploring the brewing boundaries by producing an awesome ale that reflects the purity and spirit of these Australian Alps. Our original Kosciuszko Pale is a 4.5% alcohol, slightly cloudy ale that challenges the limits of the traditional Australian Pale Ale. Crafted from a blend of Pale & Munich malts, and brewed using Tasmanian grown Galaxy hops our pale ale delivers a pleasant maltiness with a refreshing fruity hop finish. Brewed for enjoyment after a hard day of skiing, hiking, fishing or just relaxing in the mountains, it’s an ale that is always in season.

Note: Bottled version produced at the Malt Shovel Brewery in Camperdown.

Westkyoto77 (439) - Kyoto, JAPAN - FEB 25, 2014
Draught. Not much aroma- faint whiff if rubbishy hops. Not much anything really. Looked nice- pale golden- in a big schooner glass, but didn't deliver much taste, body or complexity. Thirst-quenching, but boring as hell. No thanks.

Not a fan of this pale ale at all.. Really flat in flavour and nothing really stood out, at the premium price i would expect much more from this brewery. Left disappointed, i normally would say everything is worth a try but i wouldn’t bother with this pale

Oakes (11798) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
Pale malts and dusty yeast. Not exciting, just light fruity hop. Low bitterness.

gnoff (7445) - Mölndal, SWEDEN - AUG 22, 2013
Draught as a middy size at Macquarie Hotel, Sydney, on July 16, 2013.
Malty, herbal, mineral taste. Fruity aftertaste. Fizzy mouthfeel, medium herbal bitterness. Cloudy straw yellow color, white head. Sweet, wheat, some esters scent.

danlo (899) - Darlington, Durham, ENGLAND - JUN 27, 2013
375ml bottle. Pours a hazy amber colour, off-white foam head and aroma of malt caramel with some citrus & melon notes. Taste is sweetish malt with fruity melon. Light bodied, medium cabonation, clean finish. OK.

downender (5912) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - JUN 16, 2013
Bottle. Amber with a slight, off-white head. Sweetish and malt driven, with a touch of dusty hop and decent, bitter finish. Unexciting.

M_Sack (275) - AUSTRALIA - JUN 15, 2013
Average. Very little bitterness or flavour and an off putting slight sweetness. I question the point of this beer given its relatively limited availability and the fact that its only marginally better than any of the big brewery rubbish and a long way behind coopers pale ale in terms of an "Australian" pale ale.

Machalel (32) - AUSTRALIA - MAY 19, 2013
Appearance: Light golden body with a good solid 2cm head. Settled down to around 1cm, with inconsistant thin lacing down the glass. A touch of haze, but very minor. Aroma: A waft of melon and maybe a little stonefruit. A sweet, honey-like aroma (but not honey)... not sure how to describe. No trace of malt in the smell. Taste: Fruity (same hints of melon and stonefruit) without being overpowering, and only a tiny trace of malt. Smooth and easy drinking, the profile is definitely on the side of delicate. Mouthfeel: Light and bright, good amount of carbonation. Not much to fault on. Drinkability: Nice, easy, and a great beer if you want taste without compromising the flavours of your meal. I think that it’s one that I would be perfectly happy with, but not go out of my way for.

Jado (437) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAR 18, 2013
Pours clear amber with a thin head. Nose is pretty faint, grain and some noble hop aroma. Taste is rather better, some tropical fruit flavour and a bit of lemon with a light hop bitterness. Thin bodied and a bit insipid. Quite a *meh* beer really.

Bif (1298) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 27, 2013
Bottle- Pours a hazy pale golden color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of citrus with a fruity sweetness and grain aroma. Taste of fruity sweetness and grain. Mild bitterness and a slightly lingering fruity sweetness. Fairly light body, crisp and refreshing. I Expected a bit more malt flavor but on the whole is drinkable and good for a couple.
