Mornington Brown ale


image“Mornington Brown is an English-style brown ale, brewed using classic imported English ale malts. Our Brown displays all the wonderful rich and toffee characters associated with these malts. Pouring a deep golden brown with hints of red, aromas of toffee, brown sugar and raisins greet the nose. The palate offers more toffee and raisins, with a supporting cast of chocolate and nuts. Rich, full-bodied, smooth and moreish.”

Here we have the brown ale from this Victorian brewery. It’s an English style using the English ale malt that you taste from a lot of the beers tasted in many classic pommy pubs. It has that Classic caramelised toffee aroma, almost chocolatey from the roasted grain. Pours a nice golden brown with a faint ruby hue, arousing a huge head, about 3-4 fingers in height. We were worried it was over fermented due to the high carbonation at the start but it subsides mid way through. There was little lacing on the glass but a 5-6mm cap existed right until the end which surprised us for a English style ale. The mouth feel is rich so at 5% ABV and the flavours shine. More chocolate, hazelnut, mild coffee and also the smell of raisin that a good Belgian beer contains. This is a real tasty ale..we definitely like what we see from these guys. We want more.
