4 Pines is based in Manly in Sydney's northern beaches where they have their own bar and restaurant set-up. If you can't make it to Sydney, then it's worth bringing a little of it into your home and the 4 Pines Pale Ale is a good way to go about it.
The Pale Ale pours a lovely amber colour with reddish tints and has a very short-lived off-white head, which doesn't quite linger as long as I'd like, but doesn't detract from the overall great quality of this beverage.
This particular beer is brewed in the style of an American Pale Ale and is a solid example of this type of beer. The guys at 4 Pines brew to ye olde German purity laws which stipulates only 4 ingredients : hops, water, yeast and malt, though I do hear they sometimes throw in tasty treats such as ginger and mandarin which let's face it- can only be a good thing!
If you're on the hunt for a light beer on a hot summer's day by the beach, this one is hard to go past.
