COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Oakes (13426) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - NOV 9, 2013
Hazy amber, aroma is a bit toasty, w mild malts. Earthy/crackery character. Well-made and well-balanced beer if lacking in hop brightness.

On Tap at Clancys Fremantle Moderate bitterness, slightly cloudy and not huge aromatics. A good example of a style of beer that does not need to knock your head off. A good entry into craft beer

KeefOz (1114) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 11, 2013
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.

varanid99 (664) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 2, 2013
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.

jonnyguns (1102) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2012
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

Refreshing ale. Hazy yellow gold and light white head. Light malt crystal herbs and lemon.

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
