Beer review — Pigs Fly and William Bull

Pigs Fly Pale Ale 330ml $3.99
Pigs Fly, the inaugural brew from Bowral Brewing Company (founded 2005), is in the English pale ale style – combining rich malt, high-toned fruitiness, boosted by hops aroma, and lingering, well-balanced hops bitterness. It’s been very consistent over the years and pushes the “complex” and “very drinkable” buttons at the same time.

William Bull William’s Pale Ale 330ml $3.69
De Bortoli makes this complex, quaffable brew at their William Bull brewery in Griffith, New South Wales. It’s pale lemon coloured and highly aromatic with a light but tasty and very brisk palate. The tangy freshness comes from “sharp carbonation” and terrifically clean, lingering hops bitterness.
