Pirate Life South Coast Pale Ale can

"This landmark pale encompasses our founding vision of ingenuity, our unwavering commitment to quality and the laid-back spirit of the South Coast - or as we Pirates prefer to call it, home.

It pours a luminous yellow, with a fluffy head of foam. Expect aromas of citrus and peach. On the palate, tropical fruits pair with sweet malt and a fine hop bitterness. It’s light-bodied, crisp and highly crushable."


I first tried this beer on tap at a pub I visited a few weeks ago. It left a lasting impression after a couple of schooners, so when I saw it on special at the local bottle shop I didn't hesitate to grab a couple of 4-packs.

I've had other Pirate Life beers before, and have always found them to be pretty damn good - and this one is no exception. As claimed by Pirate Life above, it's a very lightly coloured, and light bodied beer with minimal bitterness and plenty of hop-forward flavour.

A very easy drinking and as Pirate Life put it, "crushable" beer - would definitely buy some more of these again!
