COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Murrayís 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. Murrayís Angry Man Pale Ale has a full-bodied finish and complex character. The beerís 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.

Bottle from Dan Murphys (didnít check the best before until I got home and it had gone past by about a month - guess I deserve that for going to Dan Murphys). Lovely clear amber pour with a large, fluffy white head on top. Aroma is light citrus and biscuit malts, all quite subdued. Light floral hops mingle with citrus hoppage. Slight nutty tone behind it all and backed by a sweet biscuity malt. Palate is cut short by a little over carbonation and fizz. Not bad but not like the reviews had promised. Will have to re-rate once I get my hands ona fresh bottle

UPDATED: JAN 24, 2014 Bottle. Pale amber with a white head that settles to a coat. Aroma of nectarines, marmalade, lychees. Slightly window-cleanerish. Richer caramel than the old Nirvana, similar tropical and stone fruits, a little more bitterness. Like it a little less than Nirvana when it was in good nick, but does what it says on the tin. [3.5]

Sometimes does what it says on the tin. A few murky bottles, the odd hint of cooked vegies and soap. Averaging score.

ALLOVATE (2334) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2011
Yeast on in it poured a hazy, dull sandy orange with very, very fine carbonation. Big rocky white crown dwindles back a little to leave a thick web of lace. There is a lot going on in the aroma. Resinous, spicy, herbaceous and piney nose with licks of biscuity malt, peach, guava and blood orange, very nice indeed. First sip brings a mountain of flavour to the palate and gets the tastebuds all tingling. Drawn out sweetness of ripe citrus fruits, quite tangy and all piercing. Good, firm, meaty body with just enough spritz to give it bounce, the tail end being smooth, resinous and oily. Biscuity malt, fresh cracked toasted grain fill it out and tie in well. Herbaceous, slightly floral hops slip up into the olfactories on the swallow which is surprisingly tamer than expected. End is dry, not too much sticks around between sips. A hint of fruit bubblegum builds. This is pure evil. I could just keep drinking this, I canít really fault it. Easily one of Ozís best Pale ales! (33cL, BB 14/09/12, Dan Murphyís Currambine)

Bottle 330ml from Parkhill cellars. Great beer, very well balanced. Aromas of passionfruit, caramel, and grass. Taste is sweet and bitter, with long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, cloudy, with a thin head.

Davros (1859) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - OCT 18, 2012
Pours amber with a large head. Nose shows grapefruit, soft peach and passion fruit alongwith very faint clean malt. Some fruit hops as flavours too, along with some honey. Carbonation could be a bit higher. Pretty easy-drinking stuff.

sm89walt (1741) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2014
330ml bottle. Poured a clear, effervescent golden amber with a tall, frothy, lacing and mostly lasting white head. Bold and spicy citrus-styled hops with a vibrant tropical edge on the nose. Flavours of tangerine and mango with biscuity pale malts, nutty yeast, earth and then a lemon rind, marmalade bitterness to close. A slightly perfumed then toasty aftertaste. Medium-ish body, firm and dry mouthfeel, medium carbonation and finishing with a protracted pithy zest in the finish. Nice enough as a pale ale being fresh and crisp but I was particularly enamoured of the yeasty peculiarities in evidence.

Stew41 (1722) - Woodend, AUSTRALIA - JAN 28, 2012
Very impressed with this. Like a stripped back Nirvana with dry structure and amazing herbal and nettle driven hops. Low malt impact, or at least subtle to my tastes. Hints of tropical fruit sweetness in the very back palate. Itís beers like this that serve as a very clear reminder that the beer geek needs to ease off on the bigger / whacky is better and instead focus on and encourage well crafted and super drinkable classics.

Bif (1380) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JAN 12, 2013
pours a hazy copper color with a decent head that fades to some lacing. Aroma of citrus, roasted malt and mild caramel sweetness. Has a mild bitterness and a clean finish. Medium body smooth with an interseting character and a nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer, worth checking out.

Sevenlee (1253) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - FEB 15, 2012
Pours a yellow colour with a very tall frothy white head. Aroma is sweet, citrusy fruits and some spices. Taste is also sweet citrus with some light biscuit, toffee and caramel notes leading to a subtle, well balanced bitter finish. Good job!

Muggus69 (1132) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2011
Draught This beer has replaced Murrays Nirvana PA. Such a joy to be able to get $4.30 schooners of it at my local bowls club! Clean golden body, fluffy white head. Aroma bursting full of tropical and citrus fruit hops; guava, grapefruit, bit of leafy resin, and light malt caramels. Medium-to-full body, good carbonation, slick texture to it. Plenty of fruity hop on the body with a genuine malt sweetness that gives the palate some nice weight. Solid bitterness to finish lingers. Truely one of the great Australian APAs, be hard to go past compared to others.
