ALLOVATE (2487) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 8, 2011
2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 9/20
Draught @ The Clipper Inn, Exmouth, Devon.
Cloudy, sandy yellow with soda-pop carbonation raising up a loose fluff of white atop. Brine and kelp, toothpicks, peardrops and a tickling peppery spice make up the nose (very cidery?!). Clean, watery soft apple juice flavour in the mouth, tangy but thin in flavour. Sprightly, racy mouthfeel, sour and astringent on the swallow, soflty vinous, dry and crisp. No length, no life. Not offensive in any way, just very bland stuff..., "next beer bartender!"

From the box at Knights Templar. Tangy sour apple nose. Pastel yellow with a nice head. Sweet-and-sour flavor, lactic and a bit lambic like. Nice—a bit too sweet, but interesting and good.
