Lord Nelson Three Sheets Pale Ale (Australia)
Lord Nelson Three Sheets Pale Ale
Lord Nelson Brewery
The Lord Nelson Brewery is Australia’s oldest pub brewery brewing 100% natural ales since 1985.
Over this time they have become famous throughout the globe for fine, award winning natural ales. They brew with 100% natural malt, hops yeast and water with no added sugars, preservatives or additives.
The brewing process begins in the mash tun in the hotel's cellar and is fermented in the brewery in the rear bar level, before being conditioned in the cellar and served through the taps.
The Lord Nelson brew six mainstay ales and a number of seasonal’s throughout the year and also bottle two of these - the Three Sheets pale ale and Old Admiral dark ale which are available throughout Australia in good Restaurants, bars and independent retailers.
I haven't yet been down to the Lord Nelson but it would seem like one of the few places in Sydney where you can drink beer as it is meant to be drunk.
The beer is poured and you get honey, citrus and a little yeast on the nose. The beer is a light golden, slightly cloudy liquid with a white head with a little remaining yeast present. The beer has the familiar pale ale characters on the tongue the bready yeasty characters like most good Australian pale ales, this one though maybe slightly milder. The beer however only has little bitterness. It has perfect weight and a great body.
A great beer, perfect for a session. The weight of the beer is near perfection, the aromas are great but the slightly mild flavours drop the score a little.
