Stone and Wood Pacific Ale (Australia)
Stone and Wood Pacific Ale
Stone and Wood Brewery
Handcrafted by friends Brad Rogers, Ross Jurisch and Jamie Cook in Byron Bay. The guys established the brewery in 2008 with the ethos behind this ale is to be the refreshing, thirst quenching hit after a hard day at the beach!
The boys use Australian grown barley and wheat with Galaxy hops and they use Byron Bay water in their mix.
A lemon citrus hit is first present on the nose along with a massive skunk aroma. The beer has a light golden, cloudy hue with a white head. A really pleasant skunky flavour comes through when tasting a hit of bitterness and then more skunk! Not much else to it, almost soft drink like. The beer has a medium body. Overall not bad, a little different almost unusually skunky but very sessionable.
