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 donít 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.

Pours a hazy light golden colour with a white fluffy head. Nice aroma of tropical fruits and a bit of malt. Light bodied with lively carbonation, some floral notes and minimal hops. A nice sessionable beer for the Australian summer but not massively memorable

Hazy pale blonde with fruity gooseberry and peaches on the nose with a hint of butterscotch. Prickly carbonation, fresh fruit, biscuit malt, minimal bitterness, blackcurrant and brief finish. Interesting session beer.

Hop_Hedonist (392) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 30, 2013
Great ale for a hot day (like today) - light bodied - easy to quaff - lemony and fruit salad-y flavour - no overpowering alcohol kick - just bloody perfect for Australia - well done Stone and Wood! Canít think of a better golden ale Iíve had.

sic1314 (4776) - Leiden, NETHERLANDS - OCT 27, 2013
Poured clear straw, disappearing frothy off white head. Aroma of sweet, zesty citrus, light malt. Light to medium body, flavour is grainy vanilla, some floral notes, not much hoppyness. Simple and drinkavble, but not very memorable.

lusikka (7624) - Tampere, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2013
330 ml bottle.
Pours a slightly unclear golden colour with a large foamy head. Aroma of grainy malts, some citrus and dried apricot. Flavour of grainy malts, citrusy hops, apricot, pear juice and some minerals. Some cardboardy notes. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and lively carbonation. Decent.
