UPDATED: MAR 29, 2005 Bottle. My favourite beer. Pours a pale, cloudy yellow colour. Hints of orange and spice are found in the aroma. The flavour is delicious with distinctive citrus and spice elements and a beautiful light bitterness. Reward yourself and try this beer.

Draft ! I had this after the blue moon white(BMW) A pale yellow milky beer it was lighter than BMW the white head was moussy with a few choice peaks. The aroma was spices vanilla,nutmeg and some faint citrus.It tasted yeasty and wheaty the citrus is subdued but the coriander spiciness blends well.Some sweetness but its thin body and lively carbonation rounded all the edges.Very Drinkable and better than BMW but it was twice the price.

Claudy cool-yellow beer with an airy creamy white foam. Citrus and banana in the nose, also faint hints of coriander and curacao orangepeel. Touche of dough and yeast in the nose. Light clean taste with touche of wheat and lemon candy. afthertaste is clean, refreshing and a litle too watery.

ALLOVATE (2816) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 27, 2005
UPDATED: JUL 13, 2005 Tasted this one years back, but it seems to have been ’mass market’ modernised now, as it didn’t appear to be the same as it once was!. Tasted from the bottle and poured into its own stumpy tumbler. Pours an opaque pale ’wheat’ yellow, with a short dense and creamy head. Aromas of spicy coriander, fell second to a candy sugar sweetness that was cloying prior to even the first sip. In the mouth, a smooth, lightly carbonated, pasty and yeasty palate revealed light citric zest and candy sugar sweetness, cloying and gluggy, with no lactic yeast and wheat hit or spicy balance. Still, all else aside, it is oddly sessionable, though cloyingly sweet and not what I remember it as....
