This malt-driven ale is perfect for bringing in the change of season. Indigenous Australians in the local area referred to this as Ngoonungi: the time of the gathering of the flying foxes. It is a magical time of year, when the flying foxes gather in the darkening skies over D'harwal Lands. Wheat and Flaked Oats give this beer a rounded body and gentle texture, while Special B adds a hint of roasted, dark fruits. American hops added in the kettle and fermentor lend a gentle bitterness with a grassy aromatic. Balanced and well rounded, this amber ale welcomes the warmer nights and increased gathering of friends, just like the Flying Fox's do.
