4 Hearts Pale Ale – Four Hearts Brewing (QLD)

It’s nearly 12 months since Queensland last won a State of Origin series. But a least our friends across the border have go got something to smile about …………. some half-decent beer.

4 Hearts Pale Ale - so much more than the bitter taste of defeat

Like the Maroons side, this is a very classy looking package. If you’re going to make a craft brew, it’s important to pay attention to detail, even the bottle feels nice in the hand. Ipswich’s Four Hearts Brewing have done a fine job. It’s a great looking beer too, deep amber with plenty of fizz. I thought it was served a little too cold, which tends to hide the flavour. American in style, there’s plenty of hops, and like last nights game for the Queenslanders, a real bitter finish.

Joking aside, it’s a crisp, refreshing pale but I would have like some greater complexity, this one’s all about the finish.

It’s not big or clever to gloat …….. but it is fun. Here’s Queen with ‘We Are The Champions’ …………….
