On tap at Lord Nelson, pours a hazy blonde with a small white head. Aroma brings out biscuity malt and gentle English hops. Flavour is along the same lines, with biscuity malt, English hops and a touch of floral astringency. Decent stuff.

Hazy yellow, White head.
Mealy malt, bittering hops with a hint skunkiness, aromatic hops hidden behind flour. Medium light body, sparkly. Not my favorite.

Found notes from my 2009 trip to Australia. On Tap at Lord Nelson Pub, Sydney, a great bar. Did not love this beer though. A bit of a stale finish.

This isn’t the Trafalgar Pale Ale, just the Pale Ale, which I couldn’t find so will just rate the Pale here. Not a bad beer. Good carbonation, good head. Not the hoppiest of Pales but very drinkable. A bit like a lager actually.

Hazy light tan. Thin head. The nose is toasty, mushroomy, somewhat stale English hops. Balanced brew.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cloudy burnt gold colour and a dense but short, white head. Malty with citrus fruits and herbs. Long dry finish saves the unexpectedly thin body.
Rather a favourite of mine though I cannot place as to why - would much prefer an Anchor Steam Ale for its slightly bolder but just as easy to drink complexity.
