ALLOVATE (2899) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - APR 14, 2012
3 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tasting from October 2011.
Chilled and into a straightwall. A very sunny amber gold it produces, bright as bright, and highly effervescent. Snow-white, loose head of foam crowns it; sudsy and fading. Buttery, doughy nose, slightly candyish like Starburst™ fruit lollies. Some pale caramel and biscuity malt comes through as does a little ethanol spice. Quite sweet on the tip of the tongue, a good malt profile, some grit an husk showing. Candyish fruit of the aroma is lost on the palate, a positive I suppose. Firm body, not too big or cloying, light in carbonation. Very clean throughout; a rough dusty malt swallow dries it out. Finish is short, earthy, sandy, and well spiced. Low to no hop bitterness. Easy to drink as a Helles Bock should be but lacking in depth. Another along the lines of a strong Euro lager. Criticisms aside it is remarkably quaffable.
