Australian Sparkling Ale is Australia’s only native born beer style. Interestingly its origin and rise in popularity parallels the story of two of America’s own native styles; cream ale and California Common. Australia’s sparkling ale was an innovation pushed by environmental factors and aggressive competition.

Much as cream ale and California common were made in response to the popularity of lagers in America, a new ale would arise in Australia, answering the challenge of this same thrown gauntlet. This new ale is lighter in colour and body than the British ales Australian brewers were trying, and in large part, failing to duplicate.

It is usually bottle conditioned with much higher carbonation than usual, which likely was the subject of the “sparkling” qualifier in its name. The higher carbonation helped the feeling of lightness, while the roused yeast kept the body medium and added some smoothness.
