This beer comes from a relatively new brewery, in Queensland’s Great Southeast,
Scenic Rim Brewery – Digga’s Pale Ale
at Boonah – Scenic Rim Brewery. In operation for around 12 months now, this is one of two beers that they brew. “This brew pays homage to our forefathers who worked and fought hard to build this country, let alone their thirst.”
Digga’s pours a gold colour with good carbonation. The head is quite large, light and fluffy that settles to a low creamy head with good lacing
From the glass you get a yeasty citrus aroma, hints of grapefruit and lemon. A nice bitterness taste, not a high hopped beer, with fruits and hints of spice in the flavour.
Overall a neat sessional ale, could see it going down a treat drinking this in the beer garden on warmer day at the Mount Alford Hotel or like!
ABV – 4.5%
Style – Pale Ale

Slightly hazy amber colour with nice carbonation and head retention in the glass. The aroma hits you straight from the bottle when pouring, the fruity citrus smell of pine, passion fruit, lemon and grapefruit sweetness radiates from this low alcohol hop driven beer.
Come across as a full strength pale ale with nice flavours, starting with sweet malts then followed by the fruitiness of the hops and modest bitterness.
Overall a great low alcohol beer, very sessional with good flavours.
ABV – 3.8%
Style – American Pale Ale

4 Pines Keller Door Imperial India Brown Ale
What do you know this brown ale pours a dark brown with a tan head that drops away to a fine ring around the glass edge. This Ale has a sweet citrus (lemon/grapefruit) aroma which is quite moreish to the nose. To taste it has a bold bitterness to it, with a good use of hops and malt. The roasted malts produce a nice caramel nutty flavour to go with the hoppy tastes of pine and citrus.
Great brown ale, smooth with a good hit of alcohol. A quality release from 4 Pines limited release dept – Keller Door.
ABV – 8.0%

This is a Belgian style IPA Tripel
Pours a slightly cloudy orange golden colour with not a very big head and good carbonation. A clever blend of hops gives this beer a nice spicy, grapefruit, passion fruit apricot Aroma. Flavours evident are the fresh sweetness of pineapple and passion fruit from the hops complementing the malt.
An enjoyable sweet flavoured Belgian IPA. Highly rated in my books and I’ll have to get a few more from the brewery when my source is in that neck of the woods again as bottled supplies in Brisbane dried up pretty quick as it being a limited release.
Yet another bottle with great artwork!
