RED ISLAND QUIET DEEDS PALE ALE

Red Island Quiet Deeds Pale Ale. It's a good day indeed when a beer you've never heard of, from a brewery you've never heard of - and it"s Australian! - lobs in the inbox.

And so it was yesterday when the debut offering from Red Island Brewing Company arrived, the Quiet Deeds Pale Ale.

The boast here (ironically as you'll see) is that it's a beer "for those who'd rather boast than toast", but I reckon the creators should be pretty proud of this.

Pours a nice dark amber, almost red, there's a thin head and some respectable bubbles without turning the thing into a spa, smells great, a nice fruity ale and the taste? Bloody good.

This is a full-flavoured pale, with a load of hops in there - not as much as something like the Hop Hog but right up there. Plenty of fruit and somehow, a hint of licorice in the aftertaste. No really, I swear I can tast fennel there.

There's a slight carbolic undertone when it's cold (disappears as the beer warmed up a little), but overall a cracker of a beer you could settle into a session with easily.

As yet there's no brewery as such, The Red Island boys are getting it produced to their specs through Brewpack in Sydney (one of those multi-micro places) but I reckon if they pulled it all in house and got serious, this could be a bloody good little start to something.

One beer in and it alteady beats some of the big brewer offerings on taste hands down. Go grab one and let me know what you think!
