“A crisp, dry, blonde beer brewed with pale ale and pale crystal malted barley and hopped with Nelson Sauvin. This hop variety is grown on New Zealand’s South Island and it adds fantastic gooseberry flavours to the beer similar to a Sauvignon Blanc. New Zealand has been producing some fantastic hop varieties for many years but the aroma of Nelson Sauvin is truly unique in the hop world.” Fergus Fitzgerald, Master Brewer

Crosse Keys Spoons. Clear amber beer, little white head. Light palate, crisp and semi dry. Good hops for a beer of this style. Floral notes dominate with some orange and tangerine marmalade. The tangerine briefly turns sherbet like. Very dry finish. Alright.

Cask in White hart, Aldebrough. ’Southwold Pale Ale’. Amber beer with off white bubbly head. Nose is nice bold fruit: blackberry, gooseberry and rain on tarmac from the Nelson Savin. Taste is tangy gooseberries, green hops and that rain on tarmac earthiness.
