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 dont 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 nice cloudy golden straw color, great head that lasts. Aroma of fruity and maltyness. Not a strong taste but a bit sweet with hints of hop and fruit. Mouthfeel is quite carbonated and not too long. Nice tasting beer, quite refreshing, easy drinking, great on a hot day.

On tap at Pier Marina Mirage, Surfers Paradise. Hazy gold with OK head. Citrus/grapefruit aroma. Mild bitterness with hoppy palate/finish. OK.

alang51 (76) - Essendon West, AUSTRALIA - JAN 4, 2017
Didnt have great expectations of this so was midly surprised. Light fruity aroma, quite mild. Light yellow in colour with thin white head. Tropical passhionfruit taste quite refreshing, especially as I just mowed the lawn.

piwnepodroze (497) - POLAND - DEC 19, 2016
Niestety ocena nie będzie do końca wiarygodna, bo piwo trafiło do mnie przechowywane niewłaściwie (bagażnik samochodu latem). Kartonowe i mocno miodowe utlenienie, to wszystko co zostało z tego lekkiego piwa. Miało być tchnienie Australii, a są tekturowe antypody.

UPDATED: DEC 12, 2016 Staple beer in Australian bars now, helped bring the craft beer craze to the masses. Light fruity aroma, quite mild. Light yellow in colour with thin white head. Tropical fruit taste with some hop taste. Very crispy and refreshing.

danjs5 (147) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 7, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 22, 2017 Very pleasant and well balanced fruity, biscuity ale. Clean and fresh taste with minimal bitterness. Simple easy drinking. Sweet citris, grapefruit, passionfruit and tropical flavours with hint of spicy tang. A staple in local area. Great in a 500ml bottle. Even better on tap at local tavern.

Was expecting more. tried it years ago and memory has it being a lot juicier. Still good beer with a lovely clean pallet and very easy to smash.

Dandm (120) - AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2016
Huge stone fruit aroma. Extremely pale, clear. Mild flavour, very slight sweet and sour. Watery. Short fruity finish. Dry aftertaste. Had a few times in the pool and that is probably the best place for it.
