ALLOVATE (3057) - Perth, - DEC 15, 2011
Big, frothy, lasting off-white crown atop a finely beaded, orange tinged copper body that has just a little haze to it. Nice zesty, floral notes on the nose with hints of fresh baked white bread, caramel and sticky marmalade. Frothy, foamy mouthfeel. Relatively light bodied and subdued for flavour. Bitter orange and floral hop notes in back. Short, floral and mildly plasticy swallow that has just a hint more orange and pine wood. Very subtle toasted malt front. The fermentation gives it a typified Black Sheep nuance that I can’t quite pin point. Becomes more and more citrussy as it goes, with a quenching dryness to the finish. Not bad, just didn’t excite me the way good bitters do!. (50cL, BB 28/02/12, Thirsty Camel, Butler)

Bottle at my desk in work. a deep orange amber coloured pour with a fading off white head. Aroma is buttery, sweet malts, toffee, butterscotch. Flaovur is composed of light sweet malts, chalky, brambles, burnt toffee, sugars. Palate is light and chalky, moderate carbonation. Not great.

Poured from the bottle. Light amber, a little citrus. Some carbonation that I don’t recall when drinking on draught. Simple, nothing wrong with it at all.

Bottle at home. Pours clear amber. Light citrus flavour. Gently hopped. Overall pretty mild. It’s okay.
