ALLOVATE (2652) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - OCT 7, 2011
Cask, handpump @ The Bridge Inn, Topsham, Devon.
Full pint, dimple glass. Deep orange amber, just a touch short of bright, with a thin island of white atop. Big aroma of lemon peel and pear drops, eucalypt and camphor, yeast and caramel and an envelope of palest, piney honey. Smooth, soft and light in the mouth. Pear drops and lemon, eucalypt and honey like the nose. Sweet front dries out towards the back where it gets floral, piney and softly bitter. Fresh, softly fruity swallow that drops off shy and short. A little toasted malt backbone, the honey sits nicely, good balance of flavour. Great one if I had a head cold, but on its own it is a good, solid and refreshing ale. Perfect Summer drinking.

Cask at the Navy Inn in Penzance. Pours clear copper with a creamy off-white head. I think the aroma is floral with a light touch of honey. Flavor is floral and light caramel with some honey notes. A tasty beer.
