STOCKADE PREMIUM DRAUGHT

Stockade Premium Draught. This beer has all the warning signs of a bland beer. The inclusion of ‘premium’ in the name is a tell tail sign it’s going to be very ordinary.

In the language of beer, ‘draught’ merely means beer served from a cask or keg rather than a bottle or can. So all we can obtain at this point is it’s an ordinary beer poured from a beer tap. The large in-your-face metal tap decal is also a common ploy amongst beer chicken breweries. Stella, Carlton, Boags, and Cascade all use this tactic to attract the eye of the lazy drinker at the bar.

Contract brewery Brewpack, under the moniker Macarthur Grange Brewery, have released this as their first beer. 

The brewers describe it as a highly sessionable European style lager with a signature Australian finish. When I think signature Australian lager I think nasty metallic and sulphur aftertaste.

The name Stockade, which while briefly makes you think about the Eureka Stockade, soon leads to thinking stock standard lager. Yes that’s right this is really just another contract brew disguised as a craft beer on an already flooded market of tasteless lagers.

Some of you might be surprised I found this beer boring. It’s like a Carlton Draught with less flavour. Drinking it is quite a chore.

This is the kind of beer that will be on a permanent jug special at your boring, soulless local.
