BATCH BREWING CO AMERICAN PALE ALE

Batch Brewing American Pale Ale. Batch Brewing Co opened in Marrickville, Sydney in December 2013 by a pair of American expats.

It's friendly, low key and keen to build up a local support base. An impromptu announcement on their Facebook page that they would be open for a few hours on the Australia Day public holiday spurred me to check it out.

Not surprisingly one of the first brews produced was this American pale ale. Presented in brown bottle with a rustic spray paint job with “Batch” on it. Around the neck is a cardboard tag with the beer details. Strangely there is no description of the beer other than it’s 5.2% ABV. It also has a best-after date like Coopers Pale Ale. The only thing I don’t like is the longnecks are 640ml rather than the standard 750ml size.

Typical pale ale appearance -  honey colour, moderate carbonation, medium body with a fine head. Nice floral and citrus hop aroma. Caramel malt flavour followed by a strong floral and citrus hop flavour with a smooth bitter finish. 

It's like a beefed up version of Sierra Nevada Pale Ale in terms of both malt and hop flavour. There was no sediment in the bottle allowing me to enjoy every last drop.

A classic American pale ale and a great first impression of what’s to come from this microbrewery.
