Boston’s Mill Pale Ale (AUS)

Don’t be fooled by it’s name, this American-style pale ale doesn’t come from Boston but from Sydney. Named after Australia’s first brewer, ‘John Boston’, the beer boasts some dubious heritage on the brewery website. However, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.

I christened my rejuvenated front deck with this fine pale ale. Boston’s Mill is a beautiful honey coloured beer, with a good malty nose and plenty of fizz. It’s nicely hooped, with caramel undertones and hints of passionfruit and nectarine. It holds its head well and finishes with a balanced bitterness. A class act, It goes well with roast Tawny Frogmouth or seafood.

Taking their name from the Boston Strangler, here’s the ‘Men in Black’ with a fabulous cover of the Burt Bacharach classic, ‘Walk On By’ ……. ‘just go for a stroll in the trees’

One thought on “Boston’s Mill Pale Ale (AUS)”

  1. I love a well hooped bear, eh. I think we can all forgive the odd typo both sides of the Pacific/North-Central-South American/Atlantic divide. At least we aren’t getting our fucking words muddled! I had a Shepard Neame Double Stout the other day and have one in the fridge. So what to listen to? Spellbound by Suzi and the Bandcheese? Something by London Grammar perchants? I’m going to plump (leave it) for Yes – Going for the One – dig it dig it. Up the Wolves.
