ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2014
So a Czech Pilsner hey. Bold style to attempt to be honest from an Australian brewer. Let’s see how this one fares.
Pours with little oomph; a deep gold with fine and sparse carbonation. A little white on the meniscus otherwise it is short a head. Grassy, spicy but slightly vegetal, hop dominated nose with enough biscuity, toasted malt for balance. Initial, sweet, chewy toasted malts give way to a rubbery, low hop finish. Tangy with a highly astringent finish. A little unclean too. Hard to tell the body as my tongue was in a fizzle but the carbonation is low. Sickly sweet and doused with acetaldehyde to boot. Couldn’t finish unfortunately, even with the above average nose! (33cL, BB 19/10/14, Dan Murphy’s Currambine)

Weak hoppy aroma, clear golden colour, quickly disappearing head, dry finish and pleasant fruity hop flavours. It’s OK.

Pours amber with a quickly fading head. Nose shows spicy hops and biscuity malt. Some sweet notes underneath. Similar flavours; grainy, nutty malt and soft spicy and grassy hints. Carbonation seems a bit full-on.

Bif (1298) - St. Louis, Missouri, USA - JUN 14, 2013
Pours a clear golden color with a fair head that fades to bites of lacing. Aroma of citrus a bit of malt sweetness and fresh grain. Taste of some citrus and malt sweetness with some grain in the background Mild bitterness and a fairly dry finish. Light body, mild crispness, smooth, but a tad too sweet. Decent drinker, not bad for a small brewer in the middle of the Yarra Wine Region. I beleive this might be a reformulated version of their "Pilsener", with a slightly higher 4.8% ABV.
