LORD NELSON THREE SHEETS PALE ALE

Lord Nelson Three Sheets Pale Ale. Praise the Lord!

Established in 1841, the Lord Nelson Hotel claims to be the oldest licensed hotel in Sydney. The oldest continually licensed pub is often argued to be the "Fortune Of War" (1828) also located in The Rocks, Sydney. However, if you want to get technical the Woolpack Hotel in Parramatta holds the oldest licence in Australia issued by Governor Phillip around 1796.

The Lord Nelson was Sydney’s first modern day brew pub starting operations in 1985, a time when craft beer was a new phenomenon to most Aussies. When other pubs where filling up with pokies and serving cheap schooners of Tooheys Draught, the Lord Nelson was going against the grain.

Even underworld figure Arthur "Neddy" Smith used to frequent it. Today they are still brewing on-site and their Three Sheets Pale Ale and Old Admiral are available at bottle shops.  They have kept the tradition of an all-ale brewery and don’t brew any lagers.

Enough about the pub let's talk about the Three Sheets Pale Ale…

Has a bready / citrusy aroma. Medium bodied with a bready flavour followed by a crisp and bitter citrus finish. It’s nicely balanced and would be a great session beer on a hot day.

 

7/10
