COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This 2010 Vintage bottle-conditioned Amber Ale is full amber red in colour with copper hues. A rich, full bouquet with toast, lively cinnamon spice and a hint of bitter chocolate. Lifted gamey characters infused by sweetly spiced, herbal resinous characters. Full fruit weight is balanced by a creamy malty mid palate and an assertive drying bitterness. The back palate is all spice and cocoa with a refreshing zip. A true Amber ale Ė very age worthy.

Bottle. Itís a clear, amber beer with a small, dense, beige head. Itís coffee-ish, toffee-ish and slightly cellar-ish. The flavor is quite decent, coffee, toffee, some chocolate and a touch of bitterness are present, with some cellar. Semi-dry on the palate, with a smooth carbonation. A decent beer indeed. 110819

This one drinks better than their pale ale, caramel notes on the aroma and in the taste with some nutty and light burnt characters.

ALLOVATE (2281) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - JAN 3, 2011
Out the bottle, cool not chilled, and into a weissbier glass. Quite stunning to look at. Produces a deep ruddy chestnut, with a feint haze yet it shimmers in the light. A lot of very, very fine carbonation release up to an immense, steadfast, rocky off-white head. Sits a good two inches in height, if I didnít know better this would be the greatest of Dunkler-weisse. Nose has lime, rum, chocolate fondant pudding, vanilla and nutmeg-like spice in it, interesting but subtle! Good sweet, nutty, praline start in the mouth. More nuts, some roasted grain and wood mid-palate, dries out well. Malt overtones the dark, dried fruit flavours, almost like figs and prunes. Finish is malty, a little milk chocolate and cola, and burnt dark fruit linger long giving it a very late and reserved bitterness. Again, like the Pale ale of this brewer there is a subtle soapiness to it that is there but is easily ignored. Body is medium and it is creamy in feel, soft in carbonation. Not too bad overall. I think it could do with the volume being turned up so to speak as it is a little too softly spoken. But is quite refreshing and easily sessionable. (33cL, Best after 30/08/10, 1st Choice liquor)
