Mt Tamborine Brewery Presents Our VIP Guest Beers

Mount Tamborine Brewery

Drop by for a drop at The Bearded Dragon and experience the best Pale Ales, Largers and boutique beers that Mt Tamborine brewery has to offer.

Moderation Pale Ale - 3.3%

Pale Ales are a subset of many beer styles and our Moderation Pale Ale is a blend of two of these. The malt profile is based on the Golden/Summer Ales of England and carries the beer with a light hazy golden colour and a flavor of freshly baked bread. The hop profile is inspired by the ultra hoppy Pale Ales of the USA and shows a big aroma of passionfruit, lychee and grapefruit. This all combines to create a beer packed full of distinctive flavours and an alcohol content of only 3.3%.

Black Cockatoo - 4.8%

The second Lager in our line –up, Black Cockatoo is modeled on the Schwarzbiers (black lagers) of Germany. A deep ruby black colour this beer displays all the classic traits of its style. The aroma is a delicate balance of roasted malt and noble hops whilst in the mouth it shows a delicate bitterness that holds in check malt flavours of caramel and chocolate. Black Cockatoo is a light-medium bodied beer and is very good match with Grilled Sirloin or roast Pork and Apple.Alcohol content of only 4.8%.

First, you look at it….
Is the colour strong and true to type?
Is the beer bright?
Is the head firm and full?
Then you experience the fleeting aromas, be they tangy, malty or fruity.
Then the first flavours hit your tongue, and you also feel the pleasing effects of the effervescence.
You notice the quality. Is it fresh?
The bitterness and body take effect, giving some degree of satisfaction.
Then you experience the mouth feel.
You smell the aroma as the glass empties.
The lacing on the glass is a pleasing reminder of the quality of the brew.

The vital quality question -
will you have another one?
