Murray’s Angry Man Pale Ale (AUS)

OK, forget the beer for a moment, think about what makes you angry. Now have a look at Murray’s Craft Brewing Co‘s website, more specifically the article on ‘Who owns craft beer?’

First world problem no doubt, but big business trying to pass itself off as small business is worth getting angry about. Just as real craft brewers are worth supporting. Murray’s is a real craft brewer, based in Port Stephens, NSW. There are enough beers in their collection to keep me busy for a month.

This is a delicious pale ale but almost impossible to drink out of the bottle. Like Murray’s ‘Punch & Judy Ale’ , there is just too much carbonation. Decanting into glass produces a head bigger than Frank Sidebottom.

Once left to settle, and the head has dissipated enough to drink with leaving a moustache, there is a real pleasant surprise. A crisp and refreshing ale with real stone fruit flavours, I taste nectarine and peach with a hint of toffee. Like ‘Punch & Judy Ale’, this may be better from a cask.
