COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Mornington Peninsula Pale is an American-style Pale Ale, at 4.7% ABV. Pouring a cloudy golden yellow with a tightly packed white head, our Pale has both passionfruit and citrus aromas, showcasing the American hops added late in the brewing process. A light smooth palate, aided by the generous addition of wheat malts, moderate bitterness and carbonation make for a flavoursome and sessional ale.

mkel07 (3356) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAY 28, 2011
330ml bottle. Strong sweet passionfruit aroams spring from the glass. If you closed your eyes you would think you had a passionfruit in front of you. Golden amber colour with not much head but what is there hangs around. Flavour is very fruity with passionfruit coming through. Dry on the palate and finishes well.

maneliquor (3071) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAR 28, 2012
Bottle from Mane Liquor. Pours amber with a small white head. Clings to the glass and leaves a frothy head. Heavy caramel malts and piney hops on the nose. Pine and citrus hops combine with sweet caramel malts. Works nicely and balances well in the taste. Nice beer. Easy drinkability. Reminds me a lot of Little Creatures Pale Ale. Works well

bluevegie (3053) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 21, 2010
Tried on tap at the brewery. This and the porter where my pick of the beers tried. Passionfruit and apricot aromas that carry through to the taste, medium bitterness and good carbonation made this very drinkable.

hawthorne00 (2415) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2011
UPDATED: MAR 31, 2014 [4/11] Tap. Just hazy gold with a small white head. Aroma of kumquat and grapefruit, a little tropical fruit. Thin bodied. Not much malt flavour at all, a little sourness to go with assertive kumquat bitterness. Tasty and quaffable but a little crude. [3.1]

[4/12] Growler. Flavours seem better integrated this time and there’s no sourness. Pleasant enough, but really needs some presence from the malt side or punchier hops to stand out. [3.2]

[3/14] Can. Hazy gold with a white head. Aroma of passionfruit, oranges, hay. Honeyed hay sweetness, oranges, passionfruit. Dry with a firm tenor-register bitter finish. Said to have been tweaked but seems hugely improved.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - JAN 6, 2012
Bottle. The hops seemed a little dulled and the malt soapy. Not drinking as good as the others I’ve tried.

davidm (1928) - Sunnyvale, California, USA - DEC 21, 2010
UPDATED: MAY 20, 2011 Tap. Very good. Aromas of citrus, lemongrass, and honey. Taste is sweet, with light bitterness, and very good length. Palate is velvety, and medium bodied. Orange, cloudy, with a frothy head.

Davros (1924) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - JUL 15, 2011
Pours dark amber with a large, lasting head. Nose shows tropical fruit, resinous hops and lots of sweet clean malt. Textbook new-world pale ale. Similar amount of malt upon tasting, very sweet, lots of caramel. The hops are not forgotten, with more tropical fruit and resin. Finishes with a bold bitterness that can’t quite keep the malt in check. Carbonation could be higher to dry out the finish a little.
