COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Murray’s Whale Ale is a refreshing wheat beer with a twist. Its high percentage of malted and unmalted wheat and aromatic late hop profile gives a unique take on a session strength ale. A classic light body, creamy mouthfeel and refreshing citris flavour. This is balanced with assertive late hopping, giving a fresh, light tropical fruit aroma and cleansing dry finish.

Murray’s Whale Ale is light gold in colour and lightly filtered to give it a sparkling appearance.

Summer in a glass!

Dissapointing from Murrays, has a nice fresh floral citrus aroma that is quite uplifting and pleasant, doesnt translate strongly enough through to the taste which is sessionable but lacks interest. Palate is thin and a little bitter but finishes way to quickly. Aroma and flavour characteristics have potential, just needs to be ramped up a bit.

jmgreenuk (8801) - Kuala Lumpur, MALAYSIA - APR 14, 2017
Bottle from Antarabangsa Enterprise, George Town, Penang. Poured a clear medium amber with a short-lived frothy white head and a few bubbles. The aroma is malt, light citrus hop. The flavour is moderate to light bitter with a light, watery, dry cardboard, fizzy, light hop bitter palate. Medium to light bodied with lively carbonation.

(Bottle) Some citrusy hop aromas. Medium mouthfeel. Mid bitterness. Bland and boring to my palate. Try harder Murrays

[backlog] 13-01-15 // bottle at Lord Roberts Hotel, Sydney. Light hazy golden. Light yeasty. Crispy grainy. Nothing special. Easy to drink.

mcberko (16597) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 11, 2016
On tap at Murray’s, pours a clear pale yellow with a small white head. Aroma brings out a crisp biscuity malt and a touch of hops. Flavour is clean with not much going on, including crisp crackery malt. A touch of dry hoppiness. Clean and smooth, but pretty boring. Meh.

DavidAust (261) - Brisbane, AUSTRALIA - MAR 23, 2016
Really happy with my first two beers, very disappointed with the second two. So I will rate on the first two and assume something was wrong with the second batch. Two 330ml bottles poured into a 660ml plus weizen glass. Not much of an aroma, and missing the banana scent associated with bavarian wheat beers. Don’t get the citrus much either. Light golden colour reminiscent of a macro larger. Head poured lower than expected and then fell away even quicker. Some lacing on glass, loads of bubbles coming up the centre. Taste was moderate sweetness and light bitterness. Palate is confusing in that if you sip - it comes across watery, but with a decent mouthful it has a creaminess as you swirl it around in your mouth. Very short on palate length which is a blessing. Comparatively this is to a Hefeweizen what a (good) light beer is to a larger - almost right, but somehow just not quite the full deal. Buy a Victus and be happy instead.

Disappointed with the flavour. Cloudy and adequate carbonation. Just didn’t cut it after an IPA earlier

k0mpsa (2764) - Tuusula, FINLAND - FEB 16, 2015
Bottle at bine, gold coast. Little hazy deep golden color, white head. Aroma is fresh hoppy and malty. Fresh fruity and hoppy taste, not much wheat on it.

TedE (1212) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2015
330ml bottle into glass. Sweet nose. Hazy light amber beer with scummy head. Light bodied with a short lightly citric finish. Just OK, nothing more.

Sour nose, slight yeasty mouth feel, not a lot of flavour, sweet finish. Ordinary beer.

Carbonic acid gas is high. That is most thing that I don’t like. Except that, everything is enough all.
