COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Monkey’s Fist. The one with an unexpected punch! "Time Gentlemen!" used to be the most dangerous thing you could say in The Sail & Anchor. As many a black eyed seafaring man can testify, a thirsty sailor never takes kindly to closing time and always settles bar room ’discussions’ with a flailing Monkey’s Fist knot. Like the original show stopper, our Monkey’s Fist Pale Ale packs an unexpected fruity punch, a knock out blend of American hops and a tingling bitter aftertaste that will refresh even the saltiest seafarer.

Bottle. Orangish amber with a small white head that lasts OK. Modest aroma is fruity with citrus, stone and slight tropical notes, a little caramel. Slightly creamy texture, medium bodied. Sweet with stone and slight tropical fruit and caramel, a little vague citrus, moderate bitterness is slightly peppery at the end. Sound but uneventful.

Nice bitter hop aftertaste but not much body or aroma, pretty ok I guess. Better for dollar.

Bottle. pours a cloudy gold Aroma. nothing too exciting on the nose, a bit of citrus and that’s about it. Taste. nothing too exciting here, citrussy and slighty sweet. Overall. an average beer, nothing special, one i may recommend to someone new to craft beer.

drpimento (2278) - La Crosse, Wisconsin, USA - FEB 11, 2014
Meh. Poured at a good temp with a very modest off-white short lived head and a bit of lace. Color is a clear honey amber. Aroma is musty, not much bearish, don’t pick up much malt or hop. Flavor’s like nose, bitter stands out along with carbonic tang, fairly dry almost as similar to epa as apa.. Body is ok, carbonation a bit harsh. Finish is like flav, thankfully not too long.

Matthew Flinders ontap (25-Jan-2014) Lemon herbal aroma. Light cloudy amber, ok head&suds lace. Sweet lemon herbal malt. Tangy citrus finish, nasty aftertaste.

Westkyoto77 (536) - Kyoto, JAPAN - DEC 31, 2013
Bottle. Sour, fruity aromas. Fizzy body with a broken-up head. Started a little sticky and overdone at first, but malts kicked in decently along the way. Back-of-stamp herbal hops, citrus and dust. Short bitter finish. Meh.

crispi (106) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 30, 2013
bottle. from fridge. poured into a lager glass. for a non-descript lager, this is really quite nice. lovely malty aromas with some caramel, flora notes, and maybe a hint of herbs. clear amber orange, with sufficient carbonation - small bubbles continue after sitting in glass. medium lacing. slight carbonation / some sweetness with bitter aftertaste lingering..

Pretty standard American pale ale, bit fruity hops than usual and a bit maltier. Quite drinkable for woolies craft.

A pretty good pale ale, much better than most of the stuff they have on tap at most pubs. Fruity hops flavours as you would expect.

Bottle - pale gold with a loose white head. Resin hop reminds me a bit on tomato plants also something a bit sweaty. some floral hops up front then a dry finish.
