Hazy amber beer, small white head. Crisp palate with a carbonated sting. Strong pale malt, with a mild raw taste. Orange hops bring the malt to heel and provide marmalade and a good bitter kick. Some fresh orange as well. Subtle dried fruits underneath, tangy. Crisp finish. Decent but needs more hop to be a top notch pale ale.

500ml bottle. Pours dark hazy golden colour, with lively off white colour head. Pleasant on the nose, nutty malt, floral hops, some doughy yeast. Good lively carbonation, maybe a little on the fizzy side. Coffee coming through in the tast, slightly roasted, fruity, very nice beer.

In bottle at Craig’s. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of white pepper, lemon, saison yeast, caramel and alcohol. Similar flavours with moderate carbonation and CO2 prickle and a foamy mouth-feel. Lovely.

I prefer this to the american pale ale they make. Still over carbonated though but a better beer all round

Bottle thanks to Harrisoni in Rome on our MesandSim’s stag do. Poured a clear dark gold amber. Pale ale aroma with some toffee and hops in the flavour. Pretty uneventful but certainly drinkable. It was up against some stiff competition that night though (thanks all, especially Alex). And to all who were there, how hot was that singer? Miaow.

Brenhophead (594) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 15, 2012
500mL bottle. pours honey colour with a soapy head that lasted longer then i expected but not long. Aroma is a strong sweet citrus with a hint of spice and it reminds me of murray’s angry man pale ale. The citrus and spice definantly follows through to the flavour but its hard to pick up and malt as the citrus dominates.
