Ballarat Heritage Beer
Who: Aunty Jacks
To celebrate this years Heritage Festival, Aunty Jacks have teamed up with the City of Ballarat to produce an exclusive brew highlighting flavours and techniques of our past brewing brethren.
Aunty Jacks have brewed a beer in the guise of an English Mild. An amber ale at a modest 3.8%, to which the sweet toffee accents from the Crystal and Amber malts provide the most inviting aroma. Exclusive use of historic UK hops for bittering and aroma lend a floral if not earthy appeal. There is a faint fruit note, namely currant or dark berry that has been drawn from the warmer fermenting temperature – an attempt to mimic the more crude cooling techniques of the day. A balanced English-styled ale, suitable for a Ballarat autumn of yesteryear but just as enjoyable in modern times!
