The Pale Ale entered Pikes' core range in the middle of 2016 and is an all Australian drop, combining local hops Galaxy and Melba with a variety of specialty malts used to obtain the caramel hue.
In the glass, the pale has a soft burnt amber colour with a gentle carbonation on the pour. The hop aromas are delicate and are only really present as the first sip is taken. Instead, easy toffee tones mixed with a little caramel take over, with the beer ending with a refined hop bitterness. Registering just 4 percent ABV, the Pikes Pale Ale is clearly designed with a long session in mind too.
