We were inspired to brew this style of beer by the European village breweries whose ales were brewed and delivered fresh to be enjoyed in the pubs of the surrounding local area. Draught Ale is brewed to be served fresh in the many great watering holes just down the road; therefore we don’t need to filter or pastuerise it. We want it to be served over the bar just like it is in our storage tank at the brewery. Brewed with local water from the Byron Bay hinterland, Australian grown barley, wheat, and hops, and carefully selected ale yeast we have crafted a beer with complex flavours and a clean bitter finish.

Formerly known as Draught Ale.

Totally individual. Fruity. Refreshing. Unique. Sensational. The only problem is that it is so hard to find. As soon as anyone gets any stock, it disappears.

Draft - Sweet tropical fruit. Hazy pale gold with a decent white head. Sweet tropical fruit juice, carbonation bite and some residual sweetness. Tastes like pop.

Strong passionfruit aroma. Clear golden colour with excellent head. Fruity hop flavours, citrus and passionfruit mainly. Sharp dry finish. Light body with spritzy high carbonation.

Hazy golden ale with a firm white head. Aroma is lovely citrus/lemony and floral hops. Slightly biscuity malt, too. Velvety soft body. Flavor is light citrus and floral hops. Really easy going but with plenty of flavor. Such a great beer and good for a few pints without getting too pissed.

Excellent aroma when the bottle was opened. I was surprised to find it poured quite pale. It is very clear. Tastes great and a welcome addition to the beer fridge. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Absolutely fantastic versatile beer with very well balanced and flavoured hops. Bottle fermenting is a little annoying as it can be difficult to pour a clear beer after a few Pacific Ales in the gullet, but otherwise my favourite Aussie beer of the last few years. Galaxy hops for the win.

RafeAU (326) - Kingston, AUSTRALIA - JUL 26, 2014
UPDATED: JUL 29, 2014 Bottle Light golden ale but unusually has strong citrus hop flavours with little hop bitterness. Easy drinking with a lovely taste. Very refreshing. A great summer beer. Had on tap later - seemed less fresh and less flavoursome, surprisingly, than the bottle. Didn’t enjoy it as much as the bottle. Lowered my rating a little accordingly.

on tap at the hop factory on darby st, newcastle. very pale, cider-like appearance with a minimal head but decent lacing; aroma of lychee; quick and simple flavours - toffee and lemon zest, hint of stale cider. a bit dull. happy birthday, helen!

sm89walt (1793) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - JUL 5, 2014
330ml bottle. Rather lager-like in that it poured a lively, clear pale straw yellow with a foamy one-finger white head atop. Fresh and juicy aromas of lemon, mango and tangerine. Similar flavour-wise with a gentle pale malt sweetness finishing with a zesty, pithy bitterness of low intensity and short duration. Light to medium body, medium carbonation with a near watery palate texture. Balanced, crisp and quaffable but lacks bite and mid-palate presence. Nice enough but let down somewhat by the body and finish.
