The BREW by Moo Brew range is a sibling to the Tasmanian brewery's main offering, featuring simple, stripped-back-design cans containing beers that are quite straightforward and approachable too. The series launched early in 2021 with the blue Tassie Lager and, early in 2022, it has been joined by the red-hued Tassie Ale, which means in terms of can colours at least the independent operation has the state’s two major breweries in its sights.
In terms of drinking occasions, Moo have those moments typically lubricated by macro lagers in their sights too: the BREW beers are intended as fridge-fillers you buy by the case. As such, you'll find Tassie Ale to be an easy-drinking beer with a restrained hit of tropical fruit from the Galaxy and Vic Secret hops, a light bready note from the malt, and a crisp finish with almost no accompanying bitterness.
The beer topped our blind tasting panel featuring Budget Busters.
