COLDSTREAM CRISP PALE ALE

Coldstream Crisp Pale Ale. I always thought Coldstream only brewed cider until I saw a range of Coldstream beers appearing on the shelf. Their cider isn’t too shabby so I decided to give it a go.

The logo on the bottle shows a man in budgie smugglers shivering in a pool with some barley in the background. “Brewed in the Yarra Valley for a crisp, hop finish” it claims. Definitely written by some dropkick in the marketing department.

The name “crisp pale ale” tells me it’s most likely going to be lager-like and quite bland despite the use of New Zealand and U.S hops. It’s a sessionable 4.8% ABV.

Medium body and moderate carbonation. Generic beery aroma. It tastes like a middle of the road pils. Pale malt flavour with a Saaz-like hop flavour. Despite the name is no more crisp than your average beer.

It’s slightly above your average commercial beer but still a faux craft beer.

 

5/10
