Lord Nelson Brewery Three Sheets Ale 330ml $4
In January, Three Sheets met garfish fillets at Narooma’s waterside Quarterdeck restaurant. It proved to be a happy meeting in a gorgeous setting. Three Sheets, with its pronounced fruity, tangy, citrus-hoppy aroma and smooth, rich, refreshing palate, contrasted with the delicate fillets without overwhelming them.
Bootleg Brewery Wils Pils 330ml $3.75
Margaret River’s Bootleg Brewery (a must visit) makes excellent ales, doesn’t quite match the standard with its lager, Wils Pils, in my opinion. It’s a pleasant enough brew – clean and fresh and well balanced, but I looked in vain for a little more punch, especially in the hops department.
