Strong fruity hop aroma on the really fresh bottles with a little caramel malt, this translates strongly in the taste which also has a lovely hint of zesty orange with a subtle malt backing. On older bottles the malt is more forward and really quite satisfying, i find the NZ hops kinda funky at times (especially on the older bottles) but it’s definitely enjoyable and makes for a different kind of pale experience. taste lingers on for a good amount of time. Really good beer that isnt afraid to be different. Ryanmalkmus (37) - Fitzroy, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2013
Wonderful example of a pale ale. Pronounced malt character, biscuity like golden promise perhaps. Nice subtle but fresh and distinguished hop profile with nz motueka and pacifica. How much is a slab???

refreshing, with distinct herbal overtones from the hop content. a great beer! BarossaLuke (552) - AUSTRALIA - JAN 11, 2012
I hadn’t seen this beer from Murrays before, but i’ve always been impressed by their beers so I picked a bottle up. Definitely not dissapointed. The beer has a big fruit driven hop aroma with a great US pale ale type nose. plenty of hop flavour as well, I hope that this beer is a regular and will be available widely as I may have found my new go to beer.

Very impressed with this. Like a stripped back Nirvana with dry structure and amazing herbal and nettle driven hops. Low malt impact, or at least subtle to my tastes. Hints of tropical fruit sweetness in the very back palate. It’s beers like this that serve as a very clear reminder that the beer geek needs to ease off on the bigger / whacky is better and instead focus on and encourage well crafted and super drinkable classics.

Pours a golden colour with a very hoppy aroma. Very tasty and dominated by the hops with a little honey. Angry man’s pale ale ( formally nirvana) is a very good beer all year round ( especially in summer) and is a great sessional beer imaragingbull (579) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - OCT 3, 2012
Bottle pours hazy orange amber with big tight off white head. Aromas of caramel, pasionfruit, citrus and tropical fruit salad. Nice caramel overtones among the hop aromas. Medium-light body - munich malts, caramel, biscuit among a citrusy tropical fruit. Balanced finish with a nice bitterness and a semi dry sweetness. varanid99 (1399) - AUSTRALIA - OCT 19, 2012
Amber with thin but dense off white head. Fruity, hoppy, (peachy?) aroma. Citrus and peppery hit at the start, a bit of caramel, not overly bitter but a good finish. Swanny6193 (184) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 17, 2013
Fresh, crisp, hoppy bouquet aroma.
Solid carbonation, slightly oily.
Taste is strong and is of fresh hops, but is smooth and not too bitey. Flavour is great and is a very refreshing beer.

330ml bottle. Pours golden colour with nice head. Tastes of fruits and touches of honey and caramel. One of my favourite Aussie Pales. Nice beer.
