Mudgee Brewing Company Wheat 330ml 6-pack $18-20
Gary Leonard brews this in the southern German style. The combination of malted wheat and Bavarian yeast produces distinctive and highly aromatic banana-like esters. This fruity note carries through the ale’s light, flavoursome and refreshing palate. It has a refreshing tangy acid finish typical of a good wheat beer.
Mudgee Brewing Company Porter 330ml 6-pack $18-20
It’s black and packed with strong, dark-chocolate and roasted malt flavours. But a moderate 4.3 per cent alcohol means lighter body than the flavours initially suggest. And it’s lightly hopped, allowing the assertive roasted, malty, almost burnt, flavours free reign, right through to the dry finish. See www.mudgeebrewery.com.au
