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.

StuffWine (128) - Perth, - APR 18, 2012
Poured a dark cloudy amber with plenty of sediment. Unfortunately had an enormous white head - way too big. Big mixed citrus aroma, sweet too, and inviting. The taste - WOW, absolutely scrumptious. Sweet well-rounded citrus rather than other pale’s bitterness or sourness with a good balance of bready yeastiness. Long balanced dry finish. Full body with lively carbonation that says "hey, you’re drinking me". Think is the best pale ale I’ve ever had. Pity about the head.

Bottle. Floral-citrus, pungent aroma. Well-balanced in terms of bitterness and finish. So damn good. Easily up there with the best pale ales in Australia.

sm89walt (1754) - 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.

CacheManyHose (175) - HONG KONG - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle. Aroma is heavily citrus, bready malt, bit of ester. Tastes of bitter hop, some sweet malt/banana and tiny bit of spice/pepper. Frothy body. Quite flavourful for a pale ale.

VinegarStroke (270) - Napa, California, USA - JUN 5, 2014
Bottle: cloudy, hazy, light copper with a light head but good lace. Fruity, malty estery nose. Slightly unclean. Off dry, not sour and only moderate bitterness. Hollow mid palate. Lacks depth and length. Refreshing palate. More English in style than American. Lacks hops and bitterness for a USA style. Good ale aroma but lacking palate structure

Pretty lovely. Could have been a touch thicker but the sweetness was lovely. Think biscuit caramel. Super frothy, I couldn’t drink it out of the bottle, this is probably a good thing but some prefer it a bit less carbonated.

M_Sack (366) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - APR 10, 2014
Bottle. Light orange. This bottle had a huge head that didn't dissipate due to over carbonation. I'll give it the benefit of the doubt. Citrus is the predominant aroma, however it is relatively subdued. Delicious malt body with a gentle sweetness backed by a strong citrus hop element. More English than American which is a welcome change.

mattyhennessy (289) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - APR 9, 2014
Pours a copper colour with a small white head. Medium/high carbonation. Citrus and pine aromas. Some pineapple and passionfruit flavours also, balanced with a slightly complex malt profile. It is distinguishable that this beer uses US and NZ hops. Mild bitterness, making this pleasant

Iphonephan (3187) - McLean, Virginia, USA - MAR 26, 2014
From a 33 cl bottle shared in Sydney. Pours a hazy copper with a thick off white head. Fruity hop nose. Flavors of biscuit, orange and mango. Medium bodied. Moderate carbonation. Light bitter finish.
