Looks like the "American Pale Ale" is 7.5%. Considering the wine festival is going on I suspect those beers will have to wait a while.

American Pale Ale.
Obviously does not like being in the fridge. :shock:
7.3%
Water, Barley Malt, Hops and Yeast.
Quite hoppy but as with a lot of strong beers it is a bit sweet. Reminds me of Worthington White Shied or Red Bass.

Looks like it has quite a head on it. Only 7.3 and not 7.5....my mistake.

Not as lively but could not discern any difference in taste form the previous beer., it almost has a stale taste to it....

I never had much of a taste for Wheat beer. A friend of mine is a fan of a popular wheat beer called Blue Moon. Blue Moon, not a good name, as it suggests how often you should drink one. However.... it's better than the original name... Bellyslide Belgian White.

Bob Hawke, a former Australian Prime Minister and noted beer drinker has launched a beer with his portrait on the can.

In the item, it notes that any profits of his will go to charity etc.
Met him a couple of times, not a bad bloke as PMs go. :bigsmile:

That's a good story Eoin. Nice to see a political figure that has a beer named after him rather than a library.
