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.

Bottle from Slowbeer. Hazy gold/amber, appealing citrus/passionfruit aromas, really nice flavour with lingerig dry bitterness. Another solid product from Mornington.

Schooner on tap in a long glass at Beer Deluxe, Sydney. Appearance: Golden yellow (much like the branding), capped with a creamy head. Only laced at the beginning. Taste: Follows the aromas of pale grainy malt and light tropical fruits. Flavours open up as it warms. Medium bitterness. Not the best finish. Mouthfeel: Solid body and average carbonation. Overall: Not memorable. I hoped for more with the 72 overall Rate Beer rating. Was $5.

SarkyNorthener (4709) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2017
OT’ers of the Year tasting with Richthevillan. Can from Stirchley Wines and shared with Rich. Golden beer with medium head. Aroma of pale malts and some hops. Taste is dry malt, almost lager like and some bittering hops. Disappointing.

RichTheVillan (8026) - Birmingham, West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 31, 2017

Grumbo (3464) - Ipswich, Suffolk, ENGLAND - MAR 13, 2017
Can at the Crown, Morecambe. Pours golden with a small white head. Aroma of hop, citrus and tropical fruit, light malt. Medium sweetness and moderate hoppy bitterness. Light to medium body, average to soft carbonation. Bitter hoppy finish.

macca147 (284) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 26, 2017
Can. 330ml. Pours a straw golden colour with a lingering white head. Aroma: very mild passionfruit and tropical fruit aromas. Taste: mild passionfruit, pine, citrus flavours. Lightly bitter, thin feel, and reasonably dominant carbonation. A good and refreshing brew, that is perfect as a session beer. Not strong flavoured or particularly interesting, but still an enjoyable beer.

fletchfighters (1546) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 6, 2017
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.

2.3
CurlyJoe (287) - AUSTRALIA - DEC 22, 2016
Clear orange and moderately frothy. A little plain for a pale ale. Quite a sharp and bitter, not much fruit flavour.

2.2
ALLOVATE (3048) - 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)

3.5
DavidAust (275) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - DEC 4, 2016
330ml can into a snifter. Yellow amber with off white head. Tropical fruit aroma. Mid level bitterness. Medium length palate. Nice drop.
