’Hit The Toad’ Lager is a mix between a northern german pilsener, displaying medium to high bitterness, but also Saaz and Tettnang aromas from a late hopping. It also has a malty character, which then rather puts it into the category of a chech pilsener. It’s name exists, because Matso’s is proud to support the ’Stop The Toad Foundation’ with 10 cents donated from every schooner sold.

ALLOVATE (2894) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - FEB 9, 2012
Tasting from July 2008. On draught @ the legendary Guildford hotel, Guildford, a month or so prior to it burning almost to the ground. Medium gold with good clarity and a fine, tight bead. Head went up then went down to just a ring of white on the meniscus. Initial aroma of pond water, water lillies and rockmoss wanes to reveal some spicy, weedy and herbal hops and light toasted grains. Quite fizzy in the mouth, a carbonic acid bite grips the tongue and sees it end harshly crisp. Rough pasty grain flavour, toasted white bread, a sweet front and honey like linger resides long after each swallow. Hops are subtle, herbal but add nothing to it. Very, very light body I found strange of a beer that’s as sweet as this. Really missed the mark for me as a Pilsner. Would love to see these guys brew this one again with a modern touch!!

On tap @ Clancy’s Freo (infrequently). Clear pale almost golden body with a short white head. Aroma is not that inviting, mainly malts. Sweet inoffensive taste seem to pick up notes of corn.
