MILDURA BREWERY ASTOR ALE

Mildura Brewery Astor Ale. This beer takes its name from the former Astor Theatre, which houses the brewery. Opened in 1925, it was known as the Paramount Picture Theatre. After redevelopment in 1937, it reopened in all its Art Deco glory as the Astor Theatre.

The introduction of television in Mildura in 1965 saw a sharp decline in patronage with the doors closing in 1967. It was subsequently sold to the Grand Hotel and the Mildura Brewery opened onsite in December 2004.

This beer combines old world British Maris Otter and crystal malts with new world Galaxy and Cascade hops. Galaxy forms the majority of the hop additions and it’s a sessionable 4.5% ABV. Originally brewed for a spare tap at the brewery bar its popularity spurred it to become a permanent release.

Commercial looking, transparent with high carbonation, thin head and a chalky aroma. Thin mouthfeel. It tastes like a stale Becks that has lost all it’s hop flavour. Even the sink wasn't a fan.

Give it the flick.
