COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

Hazy pale straw, fairly big head. Aroma is spicy and very fresh galaxy with light leafiness. Limey, lightly bitter with a fresh, spicy seabreeze character from the galaxy. Not the richest pale ale but quality stuff.

Niall73 (1783) - Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 14, 2013
Tap at Draft House, Clapham. Pours a pale straw colour, clear with big visible carbonation. Aroma s sweet, peach, apricot. Light body, very slightly watery and highly carbonated. Crisp, refreshing - the peachy flavour comes through more than anything but there's a touch of lemon too. Nice. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Niksko (338) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 30, 2013
Pours a pale yellow with some foamy white head that fades quickly. Nose is lovely, with some tropical fruits (mango, pineapple), a hint of heady esters and a bit of sweetness. Unfortunately, the flavour lets it down a bit. Taste is very light and refreshing, with some wet cardboard and biscuit finish. There’s a little hint of those tropical fruits from the nose in the mid palate, but they’re barely there. Quite disappointing actually.
