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.

Maris (1383) - Canberra, AUSTRALIA - MAY 12, 2011
Pours a cloudy golden colour with almost no head. Has a lovely powerful aroma which is dominated by passionfruit and floral notes. Begins very sweet, with lots of orange and some honey, which is quickly followed by a reasonably assertive (at least by APA standards) and long grapefruit hop bitterness. A fantastic, distinctive pale ale.

monoroc (49) - Zurich, SWITZERLAND - SEP 9, 2014
Pours cloudy golden yellow color with a big white head. Aroma is citrus, strawberries, lime. Tastes very fruity (melons, lime) and refreshing with a smooth, slightly hoppy finish. Perfect summer ale!

From a bottle. Pours a cloudy orange, fresh citrus aroma, tiny white head, punchy fruity flavours upfront with a lingering bitterness and smooth malt touches. Quite a nice drop.

A good quality pale ale that pours well with excellent head retention and citrus and resin aftertaste.

bmeup (638) - Ormeau, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2014
Nice, pleasant hoppy Pale Ale that’s easy on the nose and easy to knock down a few. Made for that reason, enjoyable PA

mattyhennessy (376) - Highton, AUSTRALIA - SEP 3, 2014
Pale yellow with a nice white head. Lime, lemon and grapefruit aromas with some pine. Smooth and dry, well balanced malt use. Bread and nut to balance the fruity flavours. Nicely carbed. Very sessionable.

hawthorne00 (3503) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - APR 17, 2011
UPDATED: JUL 7, 2016 [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. [3.6]

Has become the local beer I buy in 6 packs.

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.
