The malt bill for this Pale Ale is quite simple, to let the Aussie hops present themselves. This beer is made almost entirely from a traditional British Pale malt called Maris Otter, regarded around the world as one of the best beer making malts ever produced, with a little bit of CaraMalt and Munich for sweetness and body, and some Wheat for keeping that nice white head all fluffy.
Our Malt comes from Warminster Maltings, a traditional Victorian floor malt house just down the road in Wiltshire. They produce the finest malts available and are a thoroughly nice bunch.
Australia showcases our 3 favourite Aussie hops, Ella, Galaxy and Summer. These have rich and tangy tropical fruit flavours with a smooth bittering on the finish. Summer adds subtle melon and apricot to the brew, resulting in a refreshing beer for all year round.
Fermented with Safale S-05 yeast
This beer is bottle conditioned. This means that instead of filtering all the yeast out of the beer and injecting CO2 to make it fizz, we keep the yeast in and let the beer go through a secondary fermentation in the bottle. It's the same process Champagne makers use. It creates it’s own natural carbon dioxide resulting in a light fizz that we think is a more refined texture and mouthfeel. The beer is alive. It is unfiltered, un-fined and unpasteurized.
The process does leave some yeast sediment in the bottom, so pour in one smooth motion if you want to leave it in the bottle.

Store upright in a cool dark place. The freshness of the hops is the key to this beer so drink it fresh and do not age.
We use the finest ingredients possible and avoid any unnecessary chemicals or processing aids. We do not pasteurize, filter or clear our beers with synthesised chemicals. The result is that they don’t always have perfect clarity, but we feel this is a sacrifice worth making for keeping anything unnatural out of our beer.
This beer is vegan friendly.
