Hazy pale ales have become important members of many brewery’s core ranges, tapping into the unstoppable love some beer drinkers have for tropical hops served atop a lush creamy surface, while offering a little less booze compared with typical IPAs. Midway through 2021, Colonial Brewing added their own, with the metallic blue cans channelling classic Casio G-Shock watches and becoming available across Coles Liquor's group of stores.
The beer inside isn't quite as over-the-top as the can might suggest, with the pale yellow and hazy beer instead providing a gentle and juicy mix of guava, mango, white grape and melon. Those notes are provided by the American trio of Cascade, Idaho 7 and Mosaic which as they fade away give way to a creamy and only slightly bitter finish.
