COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Legend has it that the brave men who sailed the Kimberley seas in search of the elusive pearl loved a good beer. Our master brewer has created a frothy monument to our rich heritage with this delicious, full malt pale ale just bursting with local flavour and deep character. Perfect for slaking a thirst on a hot summers day or stowing a few away on a wild stormy night. Any way you take it, this beer’s an absolute pearler!

Clear golden and filtered body with aroma of buttery toast, little hop character, very (very) average APA, the blurb is BS......."an absolute pearler"...not!

Pours a pale yellow with a small white head. Sweet but mild aroma. Flavour is almost honey like in it’s sweetness. Some floral hops but nothing overly complex. A good introduction to craft beer, but nothing flash

I also don’t know why this has such low ratings, I joined this site just to rate this beer... It’s a perfect pale ale, not just perfect but I have no allergies when I drink this! So many beers cause issues to my sinus etc this is heaven... Thanks Matso for a great beer!!!

Jado (526) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JAN 23, 2014
330 ml bottle. Pours a clear gold with a small white head and moderate carbonation. Aromas are very light with hints of lemon and flowers. The taste is similar, though there is a touch of pepper in the mid-palate. Very clean finish with no discernible aftertaste. Watery body. Drinks more like a lager than a pale ale. Not great.

maus (32) - Tartu, ESTONIA - DEC 28, 2013
poured a nice head, clear golden colour with a touch of amber in it (might be my lights). The aroma is subtle and clear. The taste is also quite bland and has little character. But there is a note in here worth mentioning that makes this beer actually worthwhile. Kind of toffee-like sweetness from the malts, something odd, yet pleasing.

As a fan of several Matsos (nothing beats their Ginger Beer, with lime, out sailing!) the Pearler Pale is a little disappointing, moreso given the homage to heritage it is supposed to pay. Pours a pale golden with a short, light and white head. A floral, hoppy aroma is present and translates to the palate with a north-of-pleasant light bitterness and thin, light feel. Easy to drink, the more I have the less I want. Would likely compliment a seafood BBQ but on its own? Seek a different beer...

Well I a going to be short and sweet with this one, it is another example of a ‘craft’ brewer trying to panda to the flavorless swill masses. I mean hell, I have been to Broome and it has LOTS more character then this bottle of washing water.

Easily drinkable. Enough said it went down well. Wasnt really thinking how to describe this beer when drinking.

Dervock (496) - Emu plains, AUSTRALIA - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle - very pale golden pour with a short lived white head. Very slight hop aroma. Some floral hop on the taste. thin mouthfeel. Bit bland.

Sevenlee (1317) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - AUG 10, 2013
Pours a light amber colour with a whith head. Aroma is malt with some fruit and just a whisper of hops. Taste is light to medium sweet with barely any hop in the finish. Meh.
