FIRST BREWED 2015
Styled on the sessionable Helles lagers of Germany, Draught Lager (previously Norton) is brewed with Australian malt and hops and designed to be enjoyed by all.
Paul’s dad, Bernie Holgate, was an adventurer at heart. He loved riding his Norton and grabbed life by the horns. Draught (ex Norton) Lager pays tribute to Bernie and his freewheeling, risk-taking spirit. Locally grown hops transform this classic German-style lager into the ultimate Australian session beer.
Pouring a pale gold, Draught Lager displays a citrusy hop aroma alongside sweet, honeyed malts. On the palate, the sweet, bready malt flavour is balanced by refreshing lemon and grapefruit character from the delicate use of Australian Ella hops. The finish is clean and dry with every sip leaving a gentle, moreish bitterness.
