We found some fresh hop flowers down the back of the couch the other day (in their little protective foil bags so they really were fresh), and we all said as one: “Fancy Pants.” Could we do it again? Easy said, only one way to find out. Long story short, its back: Fancy Pants Amber Ale. Stupid name, serious beer. We used Galaxy Flowers through our hop-back to give a full-on tropical fruit/spicey aroma. On top of alot of traditional ale malt we threw a liberal dose of crystal malt, a little wheat and fermented her warm with an American Ale yeast. It’s deep copper/amber with a full, rocky head. 5.2% alc/vol, 35 BU, served in the bar in our fanciest glass.

can picked up at warners at the bay. copperish amber with a steady off-white head; aroma hints at caramel, wet railings, tropical fruit salad; good hit of bitterness, slightly tinny but pleasantly so with some citrus zest nudging its way in there

chrisbroadie (15) - Wakerley, AUSTRALIA - JUL 28, 2015
Poured from can (well 2 actually....) to Pint glass / Ar: Nutty and earthy maybe, but LOADS of floral aromas. Interest grabbed! / Ap: Copper, clear, finger sized head which is slowly reducing / T: bitter, but pleasantly. Slight initial sweetness before bitterness takes over and lingers / P: Nice mouthfeel, thin-ish but good, average carbonation and long nice bitter finish / O: Malts and LOADS of hops, and what a mix! Awesome beer, suitably complex to make you think about it, suitable quaff-able to drink while having a BBQ with mates. Sensational beer. And +1 because its in a can.

From can in Belgian ale glass. Pours copper with decent head and awesome fruity/spicy nose. These both translate to the fore on the palate and make for a refreshing brew. In the interest of full disclosure, I was wearing jeans at the time.

TedE (640) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2015
375ml can into glass. BIG fruity nose, like a fruit salad. Dark amber beer with foamy two finger head. Fresh clean taste, a little zing on the tongue. Finish is rockmelon followed by a little bitter lemon. There’s a malty backbone in there. Excellent quaffer.
