ALLOVATE (2416) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 19, 2012
3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught @ Indi Brew Haus, Mindarie Keys.
Part of a new line-up.
Deep amber and sparsely effervescent with a drabby, lax white cap that manages little lace. Nose is subdued by temperature. Brought out well once its warmed. Spicy and herbal noble hops and rich toasted malt shows, flowing onto the palate. Good body, firm and rounded with plenty of bounce. Lots of malt sweetness; toasted and rich with a gritty edge. Melds with the all hop backend before fading off. Peppery, spicy, herbal and earthy in the tail with a lasting bitterness. Well balanced and crowd pleasing. A very quaffable lager!
