COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Murray’s Angry Man Pale Ale is a classic US pale ale. Australian, English and German malts balance the huge citrus/pine hop aroma and flavour strongly influenced by generous use of US Centennial and New Zealand Motueka and Pacifica hops. A brilliant light-golden colour, Murray’s Angry Man Pale Ale has a full-bodied finish and complex character. This is well balanced with biscuity/toffee flavours from selected caramalts.

Bottle. Pours a light golden straw with some hazing. Large billowy white head falls away relatively quickly. Flavours are quite subdued. Some citrus, biscuity malt a little yeast and very faint chlorine. Not to the point of being offensive but definately there. Flavours are pretty straight foward and not overly memorable to be honest. Some grain and the lightest resiny hop finish. OK

GoufCustom (1003) - 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!

Bottle 0,33l. Pours a dark golden colour with a white head. Aroma of citrus. Taste of citrus and fruit with low bitterness and slight honey in the after taste. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Cantabrian (921) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - DEC 16, 2013
Very pleasant, easy to drink. Grassy bitter, it could be a bit fruitier with the NZ hops, but still one of the best Aussie pale ales.

Dredd (714) - Bentleigh, AUSTRALIA - FEB 5, 2012
Initially I liked this beer, but as it went on it was harder and harder work and as commented by others it is more than a bit over carbonated which is a shame. Pout is muddy orange with a foamy persistent white head. Aroma is a bit of spice and citrus which follows through to the palate once you chew through the bubbles. Finish is quite dry and long. Nice, but not Murray’s greatest (which is still better than most)

varanid99 (647) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2012
Amber with thin but dense off white head. Fruity, hoppy, (peachy?) aroma. Citrus and peppery hit at the start, a bit of caramel, not overly bitter but a good finish.

Brenhophead (641) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - NOV 28, 2011
UPDATED: APR 17, 2012 I’m not sure whether they have tweaked the nirvana pale ale recipe or just relabeled the bottle (seems to be more hops aroma and flavour IMO). Alas i digress this is a classic aussie/us pale ale with a nice citrus + spicy aroma that is absolutely wonderful. The citrus/spicy favour does not disappoint and really backs the aroma up with a nice added malt character. This is a champion Aussie beer and i could drink it all night.. its a regular in my fridge cheers Murray...
