It was a Fork on the Road event where all the tasty food trucks around Adelaide come together and give us great food. At this one which was Star Wars themed (yay!) we also had some craft beers and Pirate Life were there seeing which scally wags wanted their wares. I opted for their New Zealand Pale Ale hoping it was sweet as bro! Sadly my taste buds were beached as…..
It was far too bitter and herbal for me and was just not working out. There were hints of citrus in it but not enough to bring it around into something I can stomach. I found the carbonation too high and I was visibly wincing when drinking it which is a bad sign. Once again I am not a massive fan of pale and this is exactly what I try to avoid. I did see many people trying it and seemed to enjoy it so I may be the minority in my thinking but the taste buds like what they like. I’ve had some good beers from these guys but I think I’ll be giving this one a miss.
If you like your typical pale ale bitter and fizzy then pick one up. This was a fiver for a can from the event!
