Yeastie Boys – Stairdancer Pacific Ale

I’ll admit I was pretty excited to taste this brew mainly because I loved the label. I am sometimes a bit superficial like that, but I’ve written about craft beer being holistically appealing, so I’m going hang my hat on it. Also, I was bloody thirsty!

The Stairdancer is a wheat-based session ale totally suited for the Australian summer. When I cracked it, the colour and tropical aroma instantly gave way for a summer special. It’s very fresh, refreshing, and I don’t often say this but it’s nicely citrusy (the Nelson hops working hard there).

For those who don’t know, most Yeastie Boys brews are named after songs and this ale is no exception. Click here to hear the tune from Disasteradio.
