COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A modern twist on the classic pale ale. Bucket loads of Nelson Sauvin hops are added late in the boil to create the Cavalier Pales signature flavour. Bold grapefruit and passionfruit from the hops are supported by a firm but not overwhelming malt backbone. Special attention has been paid so that there is no harsh bitterness from the hops, finishing off a refreshing and easy drinking beer.

A refreshing pale ale with a great mix of fruit through malt. Highly sessionable!

UPDATED: JAN 4, 2016 Getting 3 tastes from this little baby - grapefruit, grapefruit, and grapefruit. Lucky I love my grapefruit! Bumping up the rating after a re-taste. This is a well balanced beer, medium butter finish.

UPDATED: JUL 15, 2017 Appearance/Aroma/Taste/Palate/Overall: 4/9/8/2/18. 330mL bottle from Boozebud, $3.50 immediately after the re-branding release. So fresh! Appearance: Orange amber. 5mm head which lasted before drinking. Drinks down to a broken film which laced well to the very end. Aroma: Tropical, punchy and resinous. Reminds me of 4 Pines In Season No 4. Taste: Heaps of juicy tropical and grassy hops. Resinous tree sap. A little sweet. Moderate bitterness. Backed by moderate caramel malts - very well balanced. Aftertaste of green grapes. Palate: Overcarbonated, making the body feel slightly hollow like Coca Cola. Overall: Resinous and fruity pale ale! What’s the difference between this and a NEIPA? Added to my favourites list. Not at all boozy at 5% abv. 18/20

Hazt amber colour, quite highly carbonated for this style. Thick white head. Fruity aroma and a bitter, tart taste with hints of the aforementioned fruit. Quite nice.

On tap at Mrs Parma’s. Unique beer, very interesting. Aromas of pistachio and caramel. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and long length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Amber, with a frothy head.

330mL bottle, pours a dark caramel colour with lasting head and an amazing sweet grapefruit aroma wow.. The grapefruit does come through to the flavour and a light bitterness that makes it so easy to drink. Carbonation is spot on and it has a medium body. I’m really impressed by the 2 cavalier beers i have but this beer is the stand out.. god i hope they do an IPA.

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - AUG 5, 2014
Pours a cloudy amber golden with a foamy white head. Appealing to the eyes. Well carbonated and medium bodied for a pale ale. Aroma is very fruity; largely citrus, pine, passionfruit and grapefruit, including some of the bitter bitter citrus peel. Taste has a surprising level of malt character that the aroma did not elude to. Some biscuity character that helps balance the large hop character. Zesty and acidic fruit finish. Great.

Pours cloudy golden color with a small head. Sweet fruity aroma of oranges and grapefruit. Malty body, citrusy taste with a medium hoppy finish. Good carbonation. I like it!
