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.

Personally one of my favourite Aust beers. A nice hop finish a delight to drink

From Pacific Ale I was kind of hoping for a pale ale with Kiwi/Aussie hops. But I was wrong. Fair enough. Decent golden ale. Subtle grassy and citrusy notes from the hops with medium carbonation and not a lot of malt.

Bottled, 330ml from Beermerchants in Kent. Gold with white head. There was only a slight aroma on opening and then there was only a slight taste on drinking, the beer was incredibly bland and thin. No off flavours but just very little to get the flavour buds going. More a pale Aussie lager, pretty boring unfortunately.

My favourite beer hands down. Florally/fruity aroma and taste. Extremely refreshing. This rating is for out of the tap, yet out of the bottle would only be a point behind. Very consistent. Only con is that I don’t think I could drink too many of these in a sitting sue to strong flavour.

Cloudy apple juice colour. Poured from tap. Light beer though not watery, easy drinking but still provides a decent palate

Nice and cloudy with a smooth finish on the palate...lovely citrus tones. Best served really cold. Very good on tap but equally consistent in the bottle

330ml bottle. I’ve tried different batches from different suppliers and still don’t get this. Pours pale orange amber but with minimal carbonation and a rapidly disappearing head. Pleasant hoppy, grassy nose with some malt. Orange and banana hints on palate with a slightly sulphuric sort of mid-palate and little flavour overall. I was expecting much more.

330ml bottle. Consumed from the bottle, so I can’t comment on the pour. The aroma has grapefruit and orange hops predominant. Nicely hoppy up front, almost more APA in style than golden ale, with plenty of citrus and a little spice. There is a little white bread malt in the mid-palate, with a clean hoppy finish. A nice sessionable 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

tombutlin (369) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - OCT 1, 2015
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
