Cask@King William IV, London. Golden colour, small white head. Aroma is very much Nelson Sauvin like fruityness. Flavour is sweet fruits, some grapefruits as well as some sweet maltyness balancing it up. Rather bitter finish and quite mouthdrying. Very nicely balanced.

On tap at Brodies BrewPub. Hazy gold beer, small white head. Tiny bit of caramel malt. in the background over which good piney grassy hops dominate. Traces of citrus and a whisper of sweeter tropical fruits before the bitterness ramps up through to the finish and the aftertaste. Another very nice tasting hoppy beer from Brodies, just wish they had slightly more body.
