COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Venusian Pale Ale, a precocious little number using some of the more unusual local flora and fauna you find hanging around here in the less civilized parts of the solar system. Lemon grass, kaffir lime leaf and grapefruit peel that we pinched from rations, meld seamlessly with Venusian Spear Fungus and that funny green stuff the local chappies seem to like licking off the rocks. Zesty is the word that springs to mind and at 7.3% abv its bloody good for morale. Incidentally, it works just like napalm on the natives, which is handy.

Bomber from Whole Foods Santa Barbara . Nice pour and I was very excited because I really enjoyed the imperial pils, Hops on Pointe. But this Pale ale had an overpowering soapy taste from the additional ingredients (coriander maybe?) I found it undrinkable ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Nice appearance. Crystal clear, lovely colour. Beautiful aroma. Light sharp citrus that gently wafts around the glass. Beautiful balance with the kaffir and grapefruit in harmony built on a great base beer. Delicious

On tap at OGH. Aroma is very floral, black pepper and plenty of citrus. Flavour is much the same, with lots of lemon and lime coming through with some savoury floral and herbal notes. Very unusual, but quite pleasant.
