COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mornington Peninsula Brown is an English-style Brown Ale, at 5.0% ABV. Brewed using classic imported English ale malts, our Brown displays all the wonderful rich and toffee characters associated with these malts. Pouring a deep golden brown with hints of red, aromas of toffee, brown sugar and raisins greet the nose. The palate offers more toffee and raisins, with a supporting cast of chocolate and nuts. Rich, full-bodied, smooth and moreish.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Dark brown with fine, lasting head. Aromas of toasted malt, toffee, raw sugar. Nice smooth chocolatey flavour with just-right bitterness. Really nice brown ale.

Pours a dark brown with a thin tan head. Medium carbonation.Aromas of coffee, malt and some dried fruit. Surprisingly light body and the flavour matches the aroma, also with a bitter cocoa finish. Very smooth

Bif (1389) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 9, 2013
On tap at the Brewery. Served a deep Mahogany color with a nice tan head that fades slowly to some lacing. Aroma of roasted malt, some caramel and dark fruit. Taste of roasted malt, some caramel sweetness with dark fruit and a hint of chocolate in the background. Nice bitterness and the finish is quite dry. Medium body, smooth and creamy texture. Nicely balanced. Enjoyable beer that goes down quite easy.

Jado (492) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2013
Pours a clear mahogany brown with lighter red-orange highlights and a coffee-coloured head that sticks around. Aromas of caramel, roasted malt and raisins on the nose. The taste is similar, starting off with a sweet toffee-like note, giving way to some dark fruit and baked apple before finishing with a cocoa powder/chocolate note. Smooth, creamy palate with a lingering fruity aftertaste. Very nice brown ale, perhaps more so because it straddles the line between brown ale and porter.
