COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Redoak’s English style Pale Ale is brewed using only certified organic ingredients, and we select the finest organically grown malt and hops for this unique beer. A specially chosen strain of London Ale yeast gives a distinctive fruity character with a firm hop bitterness and rich malty flavour.

On tap at Redoak Boutique Beer Cafe, pours a cloudy yellow with a small white head. Aroma is restrained, with notes of cereal malt and biscuity notes. Flavour is similar, with dry biscuity malt and very restrained hoppiness. Not much going on here, but it’s clean.

UPDATED: JUL 26, 2016 330ml bottle. Poured into a stemmed larger glass. Oh what a disappointment. Mostly because of the hype around Redoak - "Australia’s most awarded brewery" - well no awards for this one. Aroma was nice and surprisingly malty. Appearance was poor with very little head no matter how lively the pour and it settled to between barely a ring of foam to nothing (I had three). Colour was a dark straw to golden colour. A little cloudy depending upon whether you get the sediment out or not. Taste was mild. No hops, no bitterness, minimal malt - just bland. Not horrible, but nothing to notice. Palate was short. I’ve had better macro beers, and this was reminiscent of an average home brew. Will try others from Redoak, because it can only be up from here (I hope). Update: 20/7/2016 Had this on tap at the brew pub / brew cafe. Same opinion - even though this was straight from the tap. The biggest thing to note though is that this is unfortunately the best of their range.

From a bottle. Pours cloudy with a lasting head, slight citrus aroma over the malt, mild lemon flavour. Nice

anstei (1169) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - APR 19, 2015
330ml bottle. Pours yellow with a medium head. Hoppy smell, hints of oranges, grassy. Dry and smooth, but could have a more intense taste.

TedE (985) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 18, 2015
330ml bottle into schooner glass. Hoppy fruity nose, lightly citric, grassy. Pours a hazy golden amber with thin white head. Medium carbonation. Watery feel with a little bitterness. Abrupt finish is bland and indifferent. Tiny hop note.

Really enjoyable beer, nice malty taste with not a lot of aroma, with a nice light colour

KeefOz (1533) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - SEP 17, 2014
Tasted 9/9/2014 Sydney Airport. BB 10 01 15. Poured a clear amber colour with a few white bubbles as a collar. Lacing nil. Carbonation very very low with very rare coarse bubbles. Aroma with low level nice spiciness and possibly a hint of citrus. Taste with spices and hints of sweetish citrus. Light body, a bit thin. Slightly sweet followed by low level bitterness on the finish. Average.

Capa (2727) - Kitsap, Washington, USA - AUG 31, 2014
Earthy hops, dirt, grain were all I could pick out of this one. Easily the most disappointing Redoak of the night’s session.
