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.

Niksko (381) - 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.

330ml bottle. Pale straw yellow colour, foamy white head and aroma of tropical fruits, passionfruit, pineapple, with citrus, grapefruit, mandarin. Taste is light malt with hoppy orangey earthy citrus and a mild bitterness. Smooth mouthfeel, light bodied, medium carbonation, dry crisp finish. Quite drinkable.

UPDATED: JUL 9, 2013 330ml bottle. Unusual aroma for mine. Fruity and refreshing, pours cloudy golden, straw colour. Very refreshing and easy to drink. Incredibly popular beer here in Australia. Nice and very enjoyable. Good session beer.

M_Sack (403) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAY 21, 2013
Cloudy pale yellow with a thin head. Aroma of frosty fruit iceblock - pineapple, grapefruit. Pineapple and citrus are the predominant flavours, with a medium level of bitterness interwoven through the mid to late palate. A refreshing ale that begs to be drunk in multiples on a warm day ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
