SOUTHERN BAY BREWING SOUTHERN OCEAN ALE

Southern Bay Brewing Company Southern Ocean Ale Pale Ale. A fair bit of repetition in this beer. I suppose that to be expected when a long term contract brewer launches their own beers. A bit of the DNA from other recipes must creep in.

That being said this looks and smells like a fine Pale Ale. A fruity aroma with a hint of hops and a surprisingly malty flavour for the 4.6% ABV. The flavour tends to fade and it lacks bitterness to go with the dry finish.

Given the temperature of the Southern Ocean it’s not surprising that this is more an English than New World Pale Ale.

 

6/10
