McLaren Vale Beer Company – Vale Ale
Brewery : McLaren Vale Beer Company
Name : Vale Ale
Country : Australia
Style : Australian Pale Ale
ABV/VOL/ALC : 4.5%
Note from brewery :
An Australian pale ale with a refreshing balance of malt, hops and yeast characters. Hop additions of amarillo and cascade give a wonderful fresh crisp finish with lingering flavours of citrus, passion fruit and peaches. The hop flavours and aromas are matched beautifully with the sweet honey finish from crystal malt.
Note from the taster :
Not sure about the awards winning material here. I have tasted ales that taste better than the vale that haven’t won medals. So it is down to the taster for sure. That said I enjoyed it until the boat I was on at the time of tasting rolled and I spilled some down my leg and onto the deck.
Interesting label a modern take on labels. Though one of these buggers of labels that is impossible to take off.
