Why Oxymoron? Because this core range beer from Bruny Island is designed to come across like a hoppy pale ale while looking like a dark ale – like a black IPA but not as dark or an American brown ale with less malt character.
On the nose, you'll find spicy, herbal aromas backed up by choc orange and pineapple; flavour wise there's plenty of piney, resinous hop action there too. Where the malt does make an appearance, it's of a dusty, dry roast and cocoa nature, with a touch of caramel in there too.
