Paying homage to the hinterland village Federal, once known as Jasper.
NOTICE ANYTHING DIFFERENT?
You may have noticed that our Jasper Ale has changed....It has joined the Beers From Our Backyard range, meaning it looks different and we’ve tweaked the recipe.
JOINING BEERS FROM OUR BACKYARD
The unique brews from Beers From Our Backyard celebrate the landmarks of the Northern Rivers, so it only made sense for Jasper Ale to join the range. Inspired by the one street town called Federal, that is perched up in the hills, the land around this area of our backyard (once known as Jasper) is rich in volcanic soil that in some parts are the colour of the label and the beer.
Bigger and bolder, we’re stoked to see our Jasper Ale sit alongside Cloud Catcher and our limited release new age lager Big Scrub (coming out in September) by becoming a hoppy red ale.
SO WHAT DOES IT TASTE LIKE YOU ASK?
The tropical fruit aromas of our Northern Rivers backyard come from the generous additions of Galaxy, Enigma and Mosaic hops. These are balanced with a smooth and velvety mouthfeel from the selection of roasted malts that give hints of caramel, toffee and hazelnut, finishing with a firm bitterness.
