The hazy pales continue to come thick and fast as 2020 draws to a close. Although, in the case of this arrival from recently-anointed Champion Independent Tasmanian Brewery Moo Brew, it's coming in not overly hazy and not overly pale.

A fair few to have come our way have been pale to the point of looking like a cloudy witbier; here, things are a little darker and haze is well short of cloudy. With the darker hue comes an attendant sticky, sweeter malt character. It adds a ripeness to the pineapple and mango in the mix, albeit with those sweeter fruits up against a little grassiness and rind, not to mention a bitterness with some grip and bite courtesy of Citra and Motueka hops.

Who's to say where the "hazy pale" category will end up stylistically; chances are this will prove something of an outlier with most landing somewhere softer, paler, and less punchy. But put "style" to one side and you're left with a pale ale that packs plenty in.
