COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This full mash Australian pale ale from Perth’s Nail Brewing uses Crystal malt and Pride of Ringwood hops and came to us highly regarded by those who’d samples it from the pint glass as a draught. Rightly so too, Bursting with coppery hues in the glass, it goes hammer and tongs from the get-go with big lemon and lime wafts nicely anchored with some malt ballast.

The only Australian Pale ale to win gold at the AIBA 2009.

HopRedHead (397) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 24, 2013
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours a golden orange with 2cm of fading head. Not a big aroma, slight floral and citrus hops with a touch of biscuit sweetness. Flavour was still pretty quiet, hoppy citrus and biscuit malt once again. Okay body and bitterness, nothing amazing.

jonnyguns (1105) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2012
Bottle from mane liquor. Cloudy golden pour with small white head. Nose isn't overly huge but some citrus, yeast and malts in there. More citrus coming through in the taste. No really massive hop bitterness. Great session beer ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

UPDATED: NOV 27, 2012 Nail ale is a decent session ale. Typical pride of ringwood firm bitterness, and some fruitiness from the english style yeast - all in balance. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Maris (1530) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - OCT 13, 2012
From a 330ml botttle on 14/10/2012. Pours a cloudy golden with a small white head, with some yeast floaties present. Has a very mild fruity aroma. The flavour is more impressive, with a big pile of citrus notes up front, some biscuity malt and quite a firm hop bitterness at the back. Has a touch of Cooper’s Pale about it, but is quite distinctive in its own right. A solid pale ale.

Brenhophead (695) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JUN 17, 2012
1L squealer, Pours a slightly cloudy copper hue with a nice white head and a big lemon zest aroma. The lemon zest goes through to the flavour as well as doughy and biscuit notes. Overall a refreshing beer full of flavour.

downender (8687) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2012
On tap at the Sail & Anchor, Fremantle 7/04/2012. Amber with a slight white head. Aroma of citrus hops and biscuit malts. Flavour had more of the same, with a slightly yeasty edge and bitter finish. Good.

3.2
maneliquor (3514) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 23, 2011
Tap at Sail & Anchor. Pours a cloudy golden with a small white head. Aroma was quite subdued even as it warmed. Slight citrus - lots of lemon, leafy hops and yeast. Citrus comes out to make up the bulk of the taste. Decent enough, good quaffer

3.3
mkel07 (6106) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - NOV 20, 2009
330ml bottle. Lively when poured into the glass with floral hop aromas bursting through. Cloudy dull oarange colur with a large white head. Malt and floral hops dominate . Lively in the mouth with a metallic aftertaste.

Spesh1 (45) - , AUSTRALIA - OCT 16, 2009
A good Australian Pale Ale (not Amercan). Many beers in the world with stronger flavours, but this is a beer you can enjoy and drink a lot of and still enjoy. While Coopers has moved more mainstream Nail has moved to bottled conditioned quality. Correct to all style definitions of a great Australian Pale Ale. I favour it because I drink a lot of it.
