Gage Roads Atomic Pale Ale, 330 ml Can, ABV 4.7%
Gage Roads’ take on the American Pale Ale style pours the brightest of bright oranges and uses a combination of US hops (Citra, Ahtanum and Centennial) to deliver what you’d expect of such a beer in a polished, approachable manner. There are some delicate citrus and pine aromas and fruity, grassy hop flavours that sit alongside the caramel grain flavours, with a restrained and drying bitterness tying things together. As of mid-2019, the beer is striking out on its own, in a manner, as Gage Roads launches the Atomic Beer Project under its Good Drinks umbrella. It’s a home for hop forward beer styles that will have its own brewery home in Redfern.

Little Bang Beard Fiction American Pale Ale, 375ml Can, ABV 5.0%
A droplet of condensation teased the rim of his glass, the caramel highlights sparkled in the sun, the hop aroma rising, rising… His parched lips parted, and… Beard Fiction. This is an American Pale Ale of borderline-pornographic drinkability. Here at Little Bang, they like their Pales like they like their men: A bit nutty, not too bitter, and pretty damn fruity.

Capital Trail Pale Ale, 375ml Can, ABV 4.7%
Inspired by their days hiking in the hills of the Capital region and getting a good dose of mother nature, Trail Pale Ale is fresh, juicy and sessionable.

Staves Brewery Pale Ale, 375ml Can, ABV 5.3%
The Best in Show and Champion Draught Beer at the 2019 Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Show, this classic American Pale Ale is hop forward with a generous hit of citrus and pine, bright gold in colour, long lasting head and medium carbonation 5.3% ABV.

Mornington Peninsula Pale Ale, 375ml Can, ABV 4.7%
Mornington Pale is an American-style Pale Ale, pouring a cloudy golden yellow with a tightly packed white head. On the nose you get both citrus and passionfruit aromas, showcasing American hops added late in the brewing process. A light smooth palate, aided by the generous addition of wheat malts, moderate bitterness and carbonation make for a flavoursome and sessional ale.

Young Henrys X Volcom Beer’A’Dise Tropical Pale Ale, 375ml Can, ABV 4.7%

Akasha Freshwater Pale Ale, 375ml Can, ABV 5%
Resplendent with American Cascade hops, Freshwater is a divine gift of floral, fruity flavours in radiant harmony with a sweetish, malty backbone, resulting in a brilliantly refreshing, thirst-quenching Pale Ale so good it’s almost sinful.

This Pale Ale showcases a blend of Brick Lane Brewing’s favourite Australian and Yakima hops – Galaxy, Mosaic and Amarillo, brewed with 100% Australian grown barley malt and wheat. Lower bitterness and a light, lean body ensures high drinkability, while bright passion fruit, apricot and citrus hop aroma means it’s never boring.

Hawkers Original Pale Ale, 440ml Can, ABV 5.2%
It’s Hawkers 6th birthday, and to celebrate, they are harking back to the beer that kicked off the journey that brought them here. This is their exact original recipe Pale Ale—hop forward, balanced, and above all, deliciously nostalgic. Cheers to you for all your support over the years.
