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.

Keg at Utobeer, london. It pours a hazy pale golden color with medium white head. Aroma is citrusy and lightly fruity with apricots and light pale straw and grass. Taste is medium sweet wih light apricots citrus peel grass and straw. Medium bodied with good carbonation. Overall, ok pale ale

This is a lovely session beer, not too demanding on the palate or liver. Grassy hops, pleasant bitterness and aroma that doesn’t overpromise. Slightly cloudy, like a true unpasteurised beer should be

Pint of keg. Not awful but entirely tedious. Tastes similar to a homebrew lager. Maybe suffers from travel.

MrTipple (4968) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 12, 2015
Aroma: grain malts, light citrus, floral hops. Appearance: slightly hazy gold, medium, creamy, white head. Taste: light bitter. Palate: bitters continue, some citrus, acidic, light grass and floral notes again. Overall: nice Golden Ale, almost a bit too much trying to be an APA. Pint at the Old Red Cow, Smithfield.

On tap at Glen Hotel. Pours hazy golden with fading head. Aroma is grassy citrus and this carries through to the palate with the hops featuring a both ends. Very sessionable and refreshing.

Lovely grassy aroma of hops in the glass. Pours cloudy pale amber with a thin frothy White head that lasts. Feels smooth in the mouth with dog carbonation. Taste is great; medium sweet, very light bitter with hoppy flavours leaving a pleasant aftertaste. Definitely recommend this beer.

Love this beer, better on tap IMHO as it seems to pour with a creamier head. My goto at present. The galaxy hops show through giving it that citrus kick, and the late bitterness associated with the high alpha content of the hop. Great summer beer on a hot day!
