ALLOVATE (3015) - 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.

Bottle at a Cafe in Megavissey. Pours clear amber with a big creamy off white head. Aroma is malty and light hoppy. Taste is bitter with a clear and sweet honey addition, with some spicy and minty hops. Quite refreshing.

Bottle. Pours a clear, light amber with a bubbly head.Pine and citrus hop nose, with some caramel malts. Nice and sweet, malty with caramel and perhaps hints of honey. The bitterness is quite citrusy. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Fairly well balanced finish with more caramel and honey sweetness, then some citrus hops with light stickiness. Really good.
