This full mash Australian pale ale from Perth’s Nail Brewing uses Crystal malt and Pride of Ringwood hops and came to us highly regarded by those who’d samples it from the pint glass as a draught. Rightly so too, Bursting with coppery hues in the glass, it goes hammer and tongs from the get-go with big lemon and lime wafts nicely anchored with some malt ballast.

The only Australian Pale ale to win gold at the AIBA 2009.

Poured a cloudy honey amber colour due to yeast sediment in the bottle. Had a few white bubbles for a head and laced very poorly. No visible carbonation. Aroma subtly of malt and yeast. Taste initially very sweet malt followed by a very slight bitterness - no real bitterness. Light body. Smooth dry very slightly bitter finish.

Orange gold with a thin white head. Malty aroma with mild citrus. Pretty mild flavour too - similar malty taste with a little citrus and light bitterness. Not anything amazing but very easy to drink and pretty pleasant

I was really looking forward to this beer, however, it was really boring. No real hop presence and a little watery. Would like to see if it is better on draught- Maybe a bad bottle?

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a golden orange with 2cm of fading head. Not a big aroma, slight floral and citrus hops with a touch of biscuit sweetness. Flavour was still pretty quiet, hoppy citrus and biscuit malt once again. Okay body and bitterness, nothing amazing.

Bottle from mane liquor. Cloudy golden pour with small white head. Nose isn't overly huge but some citrus, yeast and malts in there. More citrus coming through in the taste. No really massive hop bitterness. Great session beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

foles (45) - AUSTRALIA - NOV 8, 2012
UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 Nail ale is a decent session ale. Typical pride of ringwood firm bitterness, and some fruitiness from the english style yeast - all in balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maris (1085) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2012
From a 330ml botttle on 14/10/2012. Pours a cloudy golden with a small white head, with some yeast floaties present. Has a very mild fruity aroma. The flavour is more impressive, with a big pile of citrus notes up front, some biscuity malt and quite a firm hop bitterness at the back. Has a touch of Cooper’s Pale about it, but is quite distinctive in its own right. A solid pale ale.

Brenhophead (632) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2012
1L squealer, Pours a slightly cloudy copper hue with a nice white head and a big lemon zest aroma. The lemon zest goes through to the flavour as well as doughy and biscuit notes. Overall a refreshing beer full of flavour.
