I've drunk too much of PILS in my days to appreciate it any longer.

Pils? Ugh.

If you put muesli and water in a blender you'd have a better taste.

overall: 4.9
appearance: 4.5 | smell: 5 | taste: 5 | mouthfeel: 5 | drinkability: 5


12 oz brown bottle with a foiled top, a best before date on the back label.

Appearance: Foamy off white head that takes a long while to subside to a sticky lace. Cloudy yet radiant yellowish golden colour shows that this is a pale brew.

Smell: Ripe sugary nectarines, a powdery yeast and a light phenolic clove and medicinal mix in the aroma. Alcoholic esters with a touch of solvent linger in the back of the nose.

Taste: Peppery clove spiciness with a warming alcohol right behind it. Estery with a hint of solvent-like character in the high level of alcohol. Malt lays down some sweetness with a thick drying pale graininess, fruity flavours of mango and pear flash on the taste buds. Bitterness from the hops melds with the thick powdery yeast and bring the mouth to a slightly dry finish.

Mouthfeel: Smooth and creamy with a medium to high carbonation.

Drinkability & Notes: One of my favourite Belgian style pale strong ales, a bit over the top for some people and one that I respect by sipping through the night.

[ serving type: bottle ]

If you can find some that's not skunked it's great. Gotta have that authentic german yeast strain that's been sitting around this brewery since about 1300 or so...


I found some of this over the weekend. good stuff.

Tooheys Extra Dry Platinum (6.5%)

A warning:

Quote:
Down here in Australia there would have to be very few who haven’t been exposed at some time in their life to Play School. A long running show for pre-school kiddies where adults stand there and sing songs, tell stories and make cut-out duckies and sailboats. One of the enduring characters is Big Ted, a senior citizen amongst the bear community even when the show started all those years ago. Big Ted is one of those laconic, floppy type of bears who sits there without saying much (well he is stuffed, ed.), but who demands respect because of his presence and bearing. So is this Big TED of a beer the same? Or is he just a newcomer on the block who boasts of strength but has no real substance about him to back it up? Sadly the latter appears to be the case. Firstly, place the original TED and this one side by side. No difference. Both have that similar pale yellow colour of the third piss after having had a berocca followed by a litre of water. There is colour but not in great or impressive quantities. The nose of the beer is like the humour in a cross of My 3 Sons and Happy Days. The only difference in this nose is that you can tell there is a higher ABV. The resulting mouthfeel is similar with a harshness of fusel alcohol very much in the blend. Hops are typically low profile and the after burn of overcarbonation makes the whole experience one not to be repeated. With 1.8 standard drinks per stubbie, this is clearly marketed towards young blokes who want to get blotto on a Satdy night. Added to the fact that this is marketed as an eight pack (!!!) means that you can throw down 14.4 standards before throwing it back up again. So while Play School is an original delight every day there will surely be a lot of repeats for many of our Aussie youth. Me, I’ll stick to just the one episode thanks.


Concur.

I was subdued by the packaging and a few hollow promises.

I'm still in a transition stage of understanding.

To be honest, Platinum isn't that bad. However, I'd rather spend my money on something with a bit more taste for something that strong, like an Elephant, or a Ringnes Extra Gold.

Move away from Australia. It's not exactly one of the worlds brewing powerhouses...

I did a side by side of two American Pale Ales last night...

The Sierra Nevada is a classic of course, it is basically the benchmark for the APA style... however I have to give the Ipswich a slight edge... while the SNPA is more focused on hops, the Ipswich has a bit more malt and a serious spicy yeast presence (almost tasted a bit belgian), and I felt it had a more complex flavor overall.
