Beer drinkers: Are you ready to go low-carb ballistic


I've seldom seen beer packaging that says "good time" as much as this new release from Queensland-based Ballistic Beer Co. 

The team behind Hawaiian Haze has just released Low Ha Low Carb Pale, a brew that it hopes will "turn the Australian craft beer world on its frothy head".

Low Ha is described as a bright, easy going, full-flavoured Aussie Pale Ale that is also low carb. 

“Low Ha has been six months in development and testing,” says Lachy Crothers, Ballistic Beer Company’s head brewer. “As a super sessionable beer, it is a bright, hoppy ale (Mozaic & Azacca hops) that we’ve crafted to be full-bodied and full-flavoured - but not so full of carbs.”


Ballistic has a history of making full-flavoured, hoppy pale ales, like Hawaiian Haze (number six in the 2020 GABs Hottest 100 Beers rankings). 


Crothers (below) says Low Ha’s 2.2g carbs per can and 100 calories belies a robust flavour profile.


“If you didn’t know – you wouldn’t know,” he says. “It’s a craft beer connoisseur’s low carb brew. It’s a crisp and beautifully balanced pale ale, full-bodied and full-flavoured, that respectably tickles the scales at 4% abv…while being Keto friendly.”

Low Ha comes in a bright, sunny yellow 375ml can and has made its appearance in all of Queensland’s Dan Murphy stores, liquor stores, on premise and Ballistic’s own venues in Salisbury, Springfield, West End, Bargara and the Whitsundays. 

The plan is to launch it nationally in the coming months - and I'll add tasting notes shortly.  As soon as I've had a session, in fact.   


Ballistic has also made Low Ha available for online ordering across the country.
