Kooinda Boutique Brewery currently produces 400 litre batches of Hand Crafted Pale Ale using only the freshest available Hops, Barley & Yeast. The Ale is brewed in accordance with the German Purity Law of 1516, which states that only malt, water, yeast and hops can be used in brewing. Our beer is non-filtered and contains no artificial preservatives. Kooinda Pale Ale 4.7%, is a full bodied brew with a copper hue and hints of citrus in its aroma. The ale combines 3 specialty malts and finishes with a touch of bitterness on the palate. Kooinda hope to produce a Porter and Fruit beer in the near future.

330ml bottle. Pours a hazy medium chestnut, with a smallish off-white head, which lasts fairly well but does not leave much lacing. The main notes in the aroma are biscuit and charry malt, with some mild resin hops. Fruity and resin hops introduce it, with some lime playing around the edges. Biscuit and burnt caramel malt in the mid-palate, with a touch of resin in the finish. This is a fairly simple pale ale, nice enough, but nothing too exciting.

From bottle @ Yarra Valley Beer Festival, 2017 Pale gold body, reasonably clean. Not overtly aromatic - citrus, touch of pine, cereal malts. Medium body, carbonation perhaps a touch high. Restrained overall flavour - citrus, stonefruit, pine hop, toasty sort of malt - nothing really stands out - except maybe the bitterness, pretty high in comparison. Entry level offering, easy drinking, not much else.

TBottle - pours ruby with a massive head, exploded out of the bottle! Aroma is soapy, grassy and slightly licorice. Taste is slightly sweet with a dry but not overly bitter finish. Palate is pretty smooth and creamy.

Not very hoppy for a boutique pale ale. Slight tropical fruit/galaxy hop profile that is quickly diminished by a strong/dirty bitterness. I dont know why they would bother releasing this to the public. Tastes like a home brewed pale ale that still needs work. Avoid

Nice fruity aroma. Cloudy amber colour with excellent head. Very bitter flavour with a smooth finish. Heavy body with low to medium carbonation.

Not that pale with minimal head retention, citrus nose and biscuit malty palate. Not as "hoppy" as my local beer seller guy led me to believe, but a beer I would drink again

It pours a dark very cloudy brown orange, not much head or carbonation, very strong hops flavour without too much bitterness, combined with the low carbonation makes it a very smooth drink.

Certainly fits the bill for an American Pale Ale. Light floral aroma. Looks orange and that taste comes through early. Bit malty. Definitely resin in finish that lingers. Nice Sunday Summer beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Pours a cloudy brown with a white head. moderate carbonation with a strong malty flavour balanced well with consistent bitterness. Hints of citrus, overpowered slightly by the caramel and toffee flavours. A nice easy pale ale
