A bit about the beer

In a previous review on Nine Tales Amber Ale from James Squire you can find some information on the history of James Squire and the brewery. Check it out here.

The story behind the name One Fifty Lashes, according the the official site, is that apparently James Squire was caught stealing ingredients from the stores in order to make the colony’s first batch of beer. The Judge then ordered for him to receive 150 lashes… plus two barrels of ale.

As for the beer, the official description from their site is that it is a 'clean-finishing, Australian-style cloudy pale ale for cracking refreshment. Malted wheat adds to its refreshing character and a concoction of hops creates fruity aromas with hints of passionfruit, grapefruit & citrus'.

For me, it was not an amazing beer. It was not bad either, but I would describe it as more of a generic, unassuming Pale Ale. It pours a clear golden colour and has a very slight white head. Aromas of fruity malts and citrus is present, and mild tastes of citrus and grapefruit. The problem for me is the mild taste, it doesn't have enough character and is a little light and watery on the palate.

I was hoping for more from this one, and although it is not too bad and much more enjoyable than other Pale Ales I have had, it just didn't deliver on the hoppiness!
