Beer review — Lord Nelson & Cascade

Lord Nelson Brewery Three Sheets Ale 330ml $4
This is the first packaged beer I’ve tried from Sydney’s Lord Nelson brewpub. Three sheets is mid-golden coloured ale with a rich, spontaneous head and the light haze of bottle conditioning. It has a pronounced fruity, tangy, citrus-hoppy aroma. It’s smooth on the palate with flavours that reflect the aroma.

Cascade Stout 375ml $3.50
This is a genuine, full-bore stout with deep brown/black colour, high alcohol (5.8 per cent) and assertive roasted-barley, chocolate-like aroma. Those roasted and chocolate characters dominate an opulent, warming palate, with sufficient hops to balance the malt sweetness and a deliver a lingering, fresh roasted, mildly bitter aftertaste.
