I received a response from my post about the Australian Brewery and was sent tasting notes for their regular beers which I have included below.
I was also informed that the Australian Brewery is in the process of building a new bar dedicated to craft beer and manned by experienced staff.
Style – German Pilsner
ABV – 4.8%
IBU – 36
Malts – Pilsner, carapils & wheat.
Hops – NZ Motueka & US Cascade
Tasting Notes – A classic German style pilsner with a twist. Spicy NZ hops & citrus American hops generate an enticing aroma and a crisp peppery bitterness that balances a lean malt profile.
The Pale Ale
Style – Pacific Pale Ale
ABV – 4.8%
IBU – 26
Malts – Australian pale malt.
Hops – Australian Galaxy & NZ Cascade
Tasting Notes – A characteristically cloudy Australian pale ale with a truly distinctive citrus & passionfruit aromas from Galaxy hops adding to a perfect mix of flavour and drinkability.
The Extra Hoppy Ale
Style – American Amber Ale
ABV – 5.4%
IBU – 60
Malts – Pale malt, dark wheat malt, dark crystal and malted oats.
Hops – Centennial, Chinook, Cascade & Columbus.
Tasting Notes – A striking mix of American hop flavour and aroma; peppery spice and citrus in abundance. Medium to full body with toffee and biscuity notes and bitterness aplenty.
The Mexican Lager
Style – Mexican Lager
ABV – 4.5%
IBU – 16
Malts – Pilsner malt & maize (20%)
Hops – Liberty & Tettnang
Tasting Notes – Brewed with American maize and lemony Liberty hops to give a deliciously light clean palate with more than a hint of delicate lemon & citrus. The perfect thirst quencher.
The Rebel Rouser
Style – Vienna/Amber Lager
ABV – 4.8%
IBU – 32
Malts – Pilsner, munich, crystal & malted oats.
Hops – Hallertau, Spalt & Saaz
Tasting Notes – Brewed with an aromatic blend of classic lager hops, this is a full flavoured clean & crisp amber lager that finishes with a hint of biscuity malts.

ABV – 7.1%
IBU – 33
Malts – Pilsner, munich, dark wheat, candi sugar.
Hops – Hallertau, Spalt, Tettnang
Spices – Cardamon, Coriander

The Fresh Press Cider

Apples – Fresh NSW apples pressed in Orange
Tasting Notes – A true balance between sweet apple and refreshing acidity. Our NSW apples are fermented just hours after pressing and you can taste the freshness.
