Dad & Dave’s #1 Pale Ale is a simple full flavoured beer derived from 100% Australian malted barley. Hops grown in Nelson, New Zealand impart “fruitiness” typical of Sauvignon Blanc grape varieties with passionfruit aromas with a crisp finish. English Ale yeast is also used to bring out the natural sweetness of the malt and hops. The #1 is suitable for most occasions being light enough to enjoy with a light lunch or evening drinks but having enough flavour to stand up to curries or red meat.

A pale ale as humble and homely as the name suggests. It’s clean and simple but I’m not sure the malt-hop pairing is ideal. Don’t like the carbonation, either. Cloudy gold with a thin, abrupt head. Aroma of peaches, lemon barley water, walnuts and yeast. The mouthfeel is too hard and fizzy for the style - less might be more. Some English nuttiness to the Old world malts that doesn’t quite gel with the New World NZ hops. Grapefruit acids in a reasonably bitter finish. Fairly sweet. (330ml bottle from Wentworth Falls bottlo)

The dog beer garden in Sydney. Cold, wet and a poor taste, sorry won’t have again. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

From a 330ml bottle with a BBD of 5/7/17. Clear golden, smallish transient white head. Nose is mainly honey sweet cereal malts with touches of lemony citrus and spice. Palate is clean, crisp, lightish and straightforward with a moderate sweetness and light fruity hop bitterness. A passable Australian style pale ale.

Tap - pours gold with small white head. Aroma is mild citrus and sweet malt. Taste is malty with mild hint of hop up front then a cereal malt finish.

(Bottle) Clear pale golden with loose short lived white head. Aroma of cardboard and grass. Light bodied and fizzy. Gentle light maltiness, with citrus notes, in the foretaste. Some peppery and earthy notes appear in the mid-palate and develop into some, not very pleasant, bitterness in the finish. Doesn’t really work for me.

060815. Another beer from my swag from Beer Cartel. Not a beer that I heard a lot about. Golden amber in colour with a decent sized head of white foam. Mingling of citrus and pine needles in the aroma. Thin bodied but not bad.

Muggus69 (2723) - Yarram, Vic, AUSTRALIA - JUL 3, 2015
330mL bottle from Beer Cartel Pale gold body, small white head. Subdued aroma, nice enough - lightly toasted cereals/pilsner malt, faint passionfruit & tropical fruit hopiness. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, quite light & refreshing. Not a huge lot going on the body - cereal malts, subtle grass, guava/gooseberry hop character. Low bitterness, light minerally/yeasty character on finish. Very simple, quite lager-esque, but pleasant overall.

sm89walt (2080) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2014
330ml bottle, Donny’s Bar, Manly. Bready, biscuity malts down the line that give a slightly flabby texture but it’s supplemented by mid-fruits and a pithy hop bitterness on the finish to round it off. Light to medium body, medium carbonation ending with modest length. Has good balance throughout but it left me wanting more intensity.

Tasted at Canberra Small Brewers Beer Festival. Pale gold/straw, sweet bready malt, mild bitterness, slightly grassy, citrusy. Nothing special, but easy drinking session beer I imagine.
