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 brown/deep red colour. I don’t get the coffee aroma suggested in the bottle, but a nice brown sugar and raisin aroma. Full bodied, with a nutty toffee and raisin taste. Great beer and I want to drink more!

TedE (898) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - MAR 19, 2016
330ml bottle into glass. Nose is chocolate, malt, fruit. Opaque brown beer with thin film on top. Light and fizzy in the mouth. Finish is bitter with late dark chocolate and even later fruit. Very ’adult’ brown ale.

KeefOz (1493) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JAN 30, 2016
Poured a nearly clear mid-brown colour with a one-finger light tan foamy head that retained well but didn’t lace. Carbonation low and medium sized bubbles. Aroma strongly of chocolate. Taste of strong sweet chocolate but no real bitterness. Light body, a bit thin. Smooth and creamy with chocolate on the finish.

HopMagnet (17) - Katoomba, AUSTRALIA - JAN 15, 2016
330mL bottle, Beerbud Advent pack. Dark chocolate brown with short foamy head. Lifted caramel, brown sugar and coffee aromas. Long soft palate, more coffee and caramel together with hazelnut. Slightly soapy, soft gentle finish. Decent style and flavour.

Drunk from bottle. Upfront nuttiness and roasted malt along with hints of smokey charcoal. Long finish with bitterness coming to the fore followed by a nice chocolate ending.

varanid99 (958) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 28, 2015
Deep brown with a thin tan head. Burnt sugar, coffee, a little dark fruit on the nose. Taste is toffee, a little coffee and Arnotts milk coffee biscuits, a little bit of dryness and bitterness at the end.

delorean12 (7) - Ballarat, AUSTRALIA - DEC 10, 2015 does not count
That’s what I’m talking about. Aroma immediately brings coffee to the fore. Lovely brown ale. Full bodied with toffee and brown sugar overtones. Wouldn’t drink to many but that to me adds value to the overall character.

Malrider69 (127) - Central Coast, AUSTRALIA - APR 6, 2015
Pours a dark brown colour with a medium pale head. Aroma of malt and fresh cut grass. Flavour of resin with a mildly bitter aftertaste on the palate. A reasonable beer.
