For the fourth year in a row, the Wheaty Brewing Corps teamed up with Creative Original Music Adelaide (or COMA) – regulars at the bar and frequently performers in the tin shed out back. There's been a steady style progression over the years, starting with a DIPA called COMAtoes, followed by a rice lager and a mango and lime sour. Now, having tried a hop bomb, a clean drinker and a fruited sour, they wanted something a little more malt driven. Enter Malto Allegro.
It's another play on words that intertwines musical terms with beer vocab. Molto allegro is something played very fast; here, they used super-quick fermenting kveik yeast with a few specialty malts and neutral hops to create a smooth, malty drop you can enjoy more than one way at the bar.
The nitro version is silky and creamy, dark brown with a reddish hue, with a medium to full mouthfeel yet still easy-drinking. Aromas mix slightly sweet milk chocolate with cherry and a hint of nuttiness, while there's a lovely dryness to the finish as the malt driven flavours stick around for a party in the mouth.
