Three Sheets Pale Ale – Lord Nelson Brewery (AUS)

England expects …………… On the eve of the first Ashes test, I thought it only appropriate that I try an Anglo-Australian ale. As mentioned in my review of the ‘Old Admiral‘ dark ale, I’m a bit of a fan of the Lord Nelson pub in Sydney’s Rocks district. Their ales never fail to impress and ‘Three Sheets’ is no exception.

Lord Nelson Brewery's  'Three Sheets', another admirable ale.

Antique pine in colour, it has a fresh citrus aroma. Photographed here on what will be my new deck (see what I did there?), Three Sheets is as fresh as Mistral wind. Mouth-watering, with undertones of honey and apple crumble, it goes down a treat …… much like Napoleon’s fleet at Trafalgar.

Here’s to the Admiral, here’s the Ashes! May the best team win …… as long as it’s England.

Here’s the Thin White Duke, with ‘Ashes To Ashes’ …………

  1. Three sheets would be most welcome after some fatty fush und chups, and before a weigh-in. The Mistral is a katabatic wind – katabatic winds are so named because they flow downhill – how apt. The Mistral sure does blow hard and long – so no wonder it goes down a treat. Tonight I will be having a Marstons “King of Swing” – (from the fridge (frudge)) the official beer of English Cricket (cruckut). I won’t be listening to Julia Stone though – she sounds like a female Icelandic Joe Pasquale.
