COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Murray’s Angry Man Pale Ale, is our idea of beer heaven. A hybrid of an American Pale Ale, combined with the classic English Pale Ale, the beer is a brilliant light-golden colour. Murray’s Angry Man Pale Ale has a full-bodied finish and complex character. The beer’s fresh citrusy/spicy aroma and flavour is strongly influenced by generous use of New Zealand-grown Motueka and Pacifica hops. This is well balanced with biscuity/toffee flavours from selected caramalts.

GoufCustom (800) - HONG KONG - OCT 7, 2013


330 ml bottle bought at CitySuper in Harbour City, Tsim Sha Tsui.

Looks: Cloudy hazy golden amber colour with traces of dirt like yeast sediments. One finger head and white foam which last for 2 minutes. Very good sticky lacing with fizzy carbonation.

Aroma: Very fragrant nose of sweet ale malt, with fresh grapefruit, orange blossoms, molasses, canned peaches, pine cone, hint of chocolate, and faint grass.

Taste: Light sweet and refreshing ale malt, with pomelo, grapefruit, light peaches, pine, yeast, strong lime and strong grass.

Body: Medium, with thick and oozy palate.

Mouth Feel: dominated by refreshing pomelo - more so than the usual grapefruit - in a thick oozy rasiny background. I’m in a treat! Complemented with piney, slightly yeasty and good lime. Very enjoyable!

Hoppiness: refreshing citrus, grapefruits, orange blossoms, and pine cones in nose and taste, and a moderate to low touch of bitterness for a low-key finish.

After Taste: Slightly dry, very easy and fruity to mouth.

Comments:This is one very enjoyable APA, its genius use of the fruity Motueka and Pacifica hops brings a refreshing, piney, fruity and oozy nose and taste to a wholesome body. Drinking this is a pure joy. Highly recommended, of course!

Not a bad head and a full flavoured beer. Strong tastes of wet dog but a well balanced pale ale with enough after taste to make me want another sip. Not bad but not great. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Niksko (325) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUN 11, 2013
Pours a nice golden color, with lots of bubbles and a one finger white head that fades quickly. Aroma is great! Bright citrus, peach, a bit of grass, a touch of malt sweetness and just a hint of spicyness. Taste is lightly bitter on the attack, some sweet malts, a spicy character and a bit of melon on the mid palate, and then a really complex finish. The finish has a definite grapefruit bitterness, which is followed by some lovely biscuity notes, and then changes again back to a more resinous bitterness. A really excellent pale ale with great complexity.

Kurtos (100) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2013
Pours a Hazy, Dirty-Gold colour. Aroma. can smell tropical fruits, though its a very weak aroma. Strait away i taste a smooth biscuity caramel flavour, followed by a nice grapefruit bitterness, with also some tropical fruit flavours in there. Overall. Smooth and easy drinking from start to finish with plenty of flavour to still appreciate.

Westkyoto77 (515) - Kyoto, JAPAN - MAR 2, 2013
Bottle. Wasn’t sure if a hybrid pale ale would be any good, but they managed to pull this one off. Lively but not over done aromas of hops and citrus. Quite sweet palate of caramel, malt and fruit. Went down well with my burger.
