What a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, trying some Australian and New Zealand beers with friends. Cheers!!
This afternoon the Lexis Noosa students tried 5 different beers from Australia and New Zealand.
BEER 1: STONE AND WOOD
Stone & Wood from Byron Bay have burst onto the craft beer scene with some fantastic hand crafted beers including this Pacific Ale which is jam packed full of fresh tropical fruit aromas and flavours. The quintesential summer sessional beer, it has crowd pleaser written all over it.
BEER 2: WHITE RABBIT DARK ALE
Brewed out of the old ‘Little Creatures’ Brewery that was carted across the country from Fremantle (WA), this great dark ale has a great intensity with sweet tones. Medium hops with caramel and toffee notes that lingers for considerable time.
BEER 3: JAMES SQUIRE ONE FIFTY LASHES PALE ALE
James Squire One Fifty Lashes Pale Ale is a crisp finishing, Australian style cloudy Pale Ale with malted wheat for refreshing character and a concoction of hops which create fruity aromas of passionfruit, grapefruit and citrus. (Brewed in inner-city Sydney)
BEER 4: CRICKERTERS ARMS LAGER
This easy drinking Cricketers Arms lager was specially crafted to honour friendships and celebrate achievements paying homage to a time where telling stories, cheers and post-match banter was an important tradition. Keepers Lager is crafted using sun-dried malt and infused with citrus Amarillo hops. (Brewed in Laverton, Melbourne)
àLager = effervescent beer light in colour and body
BEER 5: COOPERS EXTRA STOUT
Coopers Extra Stout is a beacon for lovers of a hearty brew. With its robust flavour comprising a blend of fruit, chocolate and hop bitter notes it’s everything a stout should be. Brewed naturally using a top fermentation method, this beer’s unique rich, dark texture comes from specially roasted black malt. (South Australia)
Cheers.!.!.! We hope you all had a wonderful afternoon at our Beer Tasting activity.
