A popular favourite with broad appeal, our Australian Pale Ale showcases all-Australian malts and hops.


Mt Macedon dominates the landscape overlooking the Holgate brewery. It’s massive, moody and magnificent – not to mention insanely popular with tourists and locals alike. It’s no wonder they named it after our beer!

Mt Macedon Pale Ale was first brewed in 2001 and was our 3rd beer to be released since start-up in 1999. Designed to be a refreshing, everyday pale ale with a balanced malt and hops profile with bright and fruity aromas from a mix of Australian hop varieties.

Tasting Notes

Australian Ale and Vienna malts give this beer a delicate caramel malt flavour. The malts are balanced by light hop character and tropical fruit aromas from a variety of Australian hops. The result is a pale ale of broad appeal which is, like the mountain, a local landmark.
