Kosciuszko Brewing Company Pale Ale (AUS)

The snow-capped Mount Kosciuszko is the highest mountain on mainland Australia, named by the Polish explorer, Paul Edmund Stzeleck after the Polish national hero, General Tadeusz …. you guessed it, Kosciuszko. This pale ale by the Kosciuszko Brewing Company tastes like it could have been made from the melting snows above Rawson Pass, so fresh is it’s taste.

Unlike most pale ales, the fruit is quite understated, not revealing itself until later. The first taste is of malt and and the mild stone fruit undertones build as the the bottle goes down. Available on tap at The Panjo Paterson Inn in Jindabyne, NSW (where it is brewed), I drank mine as a  fine accompaniment to bangers and brie by the beautiful Lake Ainsworth at Lennox Head. No need to go skiing to enjoy this one.
