Lord Nelson Anniversary Ale

Lord Nelson

Published October 25, 2011

To celebrate its quarter century of bringing traditional British style ales to the people of The Rocks, the Lord Nelson did the obvious thing: they brewed a Belgian ale! Launched on the night of their anniversary dinner, an occasion on which they paired their beers with classic dishes from the 80s, 90s and 00s, it's a strong golden ale style and really quite delicious. Clean and sparkling in the wine glass in which it's being served, it has the lightly spicy, citrus peel aroma typical of the style, a smooth, creamy body and some sweet, honeyed malt and bubblegum flavours. Wrapped up with a peppery, slightly bitter finish, it's one of several seriously tasty Belgian ales to roll out of Aussie micros in the past few weeks, something we'd love to see more of.
