The William Bull Brewery is unsurprisingly named after a chap called “William Bull” (Billy B to his mates) and was founded by the De Bortoli family. The renowned wine makers originally brewed ale for consumption by the vineyard workers and branched out in to craft brewing about 10 years ago. The Bilbul-based Bull Brewey (try saying that after a 6-pack or 2) produces a range of ales but the Organic Pale is the first I’ve come across.
Now, before all you photo-nazis start pointing out that the picture isn’t straight, it’s the post that not straight. so just tilt your head to the left or your screen to right.
This organic pale is pale indeed, pouring a very clear white gold into the glass. There’s a mild aroma of rock melon and light carbonation. It’s a refreshing ale, more reminiscent of an English pale than an American one, I think this would be great on draught. There’s malt mixed with a subtle citrus bitterness. A great quaffing ale, and being organic, it’s good for the environment too. What’s not to like?
