Cask @ White Lady. Gold with a thin head. Has a good balance of malt and hops, all very light with an underlying sweet fruitiness throughout its character.

Not much aroma, not much head, slightly hazy golden beer. It’s drinkable but really just a bang average golden beer.

Bottle from Akiyama Liquor Store (Kochi). Light grassy nose, with some thin fruity hopping, and some citrus. Medium amber/straw color. Light grass, medium bittering, smooth finish. Flavors fade quickly. Thin body. Okay. Nothing really stands out in this one.

ALLOVATE (2624) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - AUG 16, 2014
Cap explodes off with a gush of pent up fury, but luckily the beer remains intact. Into a snifter at just on cool it goes and a heady, honeyed papaya wafts up to greet me. It settles more head than beer. A looming, noisy, two inches of rocky foam atop a hazy orange copper body. The nose seems more Belgian Tripel than Golden ale. Yeasty, fruity, spicy with bready undertones and a hint of dried herbs. Quite rounded, sweet and tangy on the palate. Again yeasty and bready like the nose, but fuelled by high effervescence which sees it slip passed the tonsils with radical ease. Dries out in the swallow showing big, bold papaya and guava notes, a light orange zest bitterness and just a little lemon rock candi. This seems a bit hit and miss by the look of the ratings but I find it approachable and refreshing. The flavour profile is still more Belgian than not, but it works. Good stuff! (50cL, BBE 08/14, The Liquor Shed, Jandakot)
