The new brewery at Katoomba has opened with its first beer an American Pale Ale called BATCH #1  at 5.2% and  32IBU. the beer is on tap at the Old City Bank Bar in Katoomba, part of the Katoomba  Carrington Hotel set up which also operated the brewery. As far as I know this beer is the only beer that they produce as yet. Pale Ales are not generally my beer of choice as a rule, particularly American Pale’s. However, the first one of these that I tried was not to bad. It has a lot of the  characteristics of an A.P.A. A pretty big hoppy aroma at the outset wit the floral taste and a back taste bitterness with maybe some citrus notes. Personally I would I wold tend to loose a touch of the bitters but that would likely make the P.A purists squeal.

I look forward to the next style if there is one but there was no information on the internet that I could find and the beer isn’t in the Untappd site either or at least we couldn’t get it entered.
