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.

Perfect Summer session beer. Very nixcely balanced. The aroma is pure galaxy/passionfruit, the flavour is fresh, fruity/passionfruit with a distinct yet subtle hop presence. On a Summers day there is no better beer.

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 dont think I could drink too many of these in a sitting sue to strong flavour.

Totally individual. Fruity. Refreshing. Unique. Sensational. The only problem is that it is so hard to find. As soon as anyone gets any stock, it disappears.

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

Absolutely fantastic versatile beer with very well balanced and flavoured hops. Bottle fermenting is a little annoying as it can be difficult to pour a clear beer after a few Pacific Ales in the gullet, but otherwise my favourite Aussie beer of the last few years. Galaxy hops for the win.

Strong passionfruit aroma. Clear golden colour with excellent head. Fruity hop flavours, citrus and passionfruit mainly. Sharp dry finish. Light body with spritzy high carbonation.
