Half Time Pale Ale is a mid-strength beer. Unlike most mid-strengths, it is a beer I drink because I enjoy the flavours. Half Time Pale offers citrus and spice, nice body, well-balanced bitterness. Most of all, Half Time Pale is refreshing. Each 375ml can is one standard drink.

Deeds Brewing started life as ‘Quiet Deeds’ in 2012. But as they moved into their own brewery in 2015 and took total control, they became Deeds Brewing.
The history of beer is long and complicated. It is a story worth hearing too. At its core, beer is the fermented product of grains, most of which is malted (toasted/cooked). The malting and extraction of the sugars are where most of the magic happens. But the use of hops and the choice of yeast can drastically change the aromas, flavour and palate of the beer. Add to this the unlimited ‘adjuncts’ AKA anything, not water, yeast, hops, or grains means that beer can be anything. Oh yeah, did I mention that altering the chemistry of the water can change the flavour and palate of the beer too?
The most important thing to remember is that there is a beer for everyone who enjoys imbibing alcohol. In Australia and around the world, there is a large amount of mediocre, bland, beers that are notionally easy to drink in large quantities. Most of these are Lagers or Pale Ales, but the variations of beer are endless, and when you start down the rabbit hole, you’ll never want to go back.
When pale malt became available, brewers could make Pale Ales not just brown Porter and Stout. English Pale Ale is often dry, malty, bitter, with hints of hop flavours. New World Pale Ale can be anything. They used to be all the rage, but IPA is now the darling of brewers. Most modern Pale Ales are around that 5% abv on the lighter side, fresh with a sweeter, hoppier outlook.
