Pale Ale - Australian / New Zealand

The Australian Pale Ale and the New Zealand (NZ) Pale Ale are a golden to light amber colored, refreshing and average-strength hop-forward ales, yet with sufficient supporting malt to make it generally more balanced than IPAs. The clean hop presence reflects modern Australian or New Zealand hop varieties with usually features such as tropical fruit, mango, passionfruit or stone-fruit. These Pale Ales will generally be very reminiscent of American Pale Ales with specific hop varieties. Less bitterness in the balance and alcohol strength than an American IPA. More balanced and drinkable, and less intensely hop-focused and bitter than Session IPAs. The term Pacific Pale Ale is also accepted, to serve a function of describing Pale Ales featuring mainly hops from Australia and New Zealand, often mixed with American varieties.
