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.

GBBF. Last beer of a long day and somewhat truncated notes. Guess this must have been from a bottle. Light crisp beer with a semi dry palate. Light hops with a little mango. Decent. 3.5

Hazy gold beer, little white head. Palate is crisp and semi dry. Minerals. Nice light tropical fruit hops - peach. apricot and mango in equal proportions. Light dry finish. A light and refreshing beer without ever being wimpy. Great fresh fruits.

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.
