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.

Clear straw yellow color, off white head. fades quick to a collar. Some spotty lacing. Nose is very neutral. Mostly grain notes with this. Light pine bitterness with a lot of cereal notes. Clean and crisp until the finish when the hops kick in. Mostly straight bitterness. Light bodied and crisp. Very clean but very neutral.

Clear orange and moderately frothy. A little plain for a pale ale. Quite a sharp and bitter, not much fruit flavour.

ALLOVATE (2961) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - DEC 5, 2016
Day 4 of 2016 Advent calendar.
Orange amber and just shy of bright. Creamy, compact off-white crown lasts the length. Phenolic, clappy, husky nose with a little raw bread dough and lemon peel - smells dank and a little oxidised. Taste is a little on the tired side unfortunately. Drabby hops, light esters of tangy citrus fruit with a nutty, slightly smoky and husky malt profile. Dry, cardboard-like finish. Light bodied but awkward in mouthfeel with a crispness that is a little left of style. One for a re-rate!! (33cL, no date stamp, Boozebud)

mrjez (556) - Osaka, JAPAN - MAR 17, 2016
Poured from can. A nice-looking hazy gold with a staying finger of white head. Decent aroma of tropical hops, citrus, grassy malt. Flavour follows well, notes of citrus and passionfruit, some earthiness to the malt. Its quite light on in feel, and perhaps falls away a little quickly. Overall a good PA, restrained notes and flavours, sessionable.
