A beer conceived in honour of Cadel Evans' Tour de France triumph, The Natural is a tribute to French country ales, those that are typically yeast driven session strength beers with heaps of character. Using a unique and distinctive French Ale yeast, it boasts "strong earthy, country aromas" according to Murray's with a "light acidity on the palate followed by the driest of cracking dry finishes". Featuring a high malted and unmalted wheat content and pouring a hazy, pale straw colour, it has also been brewed for charity with all proceeds going to the Amy Gillett Foundation, which aims to reduce the incidence of injury and death casued by the interaction of cyclists and motorists. It's only available at the Port Stephens brewery for now - or by ordering some via the post.
