You know that when the bigger bottle shops in Brisbane aren’t helping the Craft Beer movement! I found out when I traveled 450klm north and got an almighty surprise when I walked into the same bottle shop and found about 30 craft beers that you don’t see in the Brisbane stores. Thankfully the smaller independent bottle shops are leading the way here.
One of the ‘said’ beers was this one (yes I’ve seen it before in Brisbane), from Pommie brewer Oakham Ales, a single hop American Pale Ale. It poured a slightly cloudy light yellow colour with a average head that fell away to a thin film. Sweet aroma with fresh fruity citrus hoppy aroma on the nose – grapefruit, lemon. Nice fruity sweet malt flavours, light bodied with a nice bitter hop kick.
Clean nicely built beer.
