4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
Draught at København Ølfestival 2010
Hazy amber color; creamy head. Very nice hops aroma: the fruits from the Nelson Sauvin, but also a sharp earthy touch, light manure, very light apricot jam (this is a different hop). The mouthfeel is dry, yet quite smooth (high carbonation too), dry toffee flavor, with strong bitterness: mix of mild resins, earthy touch extreme bitterness, extreme dryness, with astringent final. Not only it’s very good, but it would also go very well with food.

Draught at Copenhagen Beer Festival. Hazy pale amber, creamy head. Sweaty grapefruity nose. Richly hoppy with plenty of black currant. Clean, rounded mouthfeel. Massively hoppy in a beatiful way - grapefruit and black currant sorbet. Really marked bitterness. Hop juice deluxe!

4 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Tap at Mikkellerbar. With Nelson being one of my favorite hops so far, this one obviously fell into my liking. Hazy yellow/orange with a thick white head. Full nelson aroma of grape fruit and sweet mandarine. Soft and bitter flavor again with the lovely hop notes comming thtough in the moutharoma. When its fresh its amazing.

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
UPDATED: FEB 3, 2010 Draught at Ørsted Ølbar (1st time) & ØLbaren (2nd time). Clear amber - white head. 1st time: Lots of Nelson Sauvin hop aroma, lots of petroleum + benzin + fruitiness, caramel, toasted, grassy, piney, peach, citric, pineapples, light citrus, medium malty. Nice but a bit over the top on the Nelson Sauvin hops... not my favorit...... 2nd time: The Nelson Sauvin hops has mellowed a bit, now its a lot more pleasant, still very fruity. Nice drinkability. (The score is from 2nd time I tasted it).

Hazy deep golden with a large tanned head leaving excellent lacing. Inviting hoppy aroma, goose berries and plums, hinting at sweat. Well balanced bitter and sweet flavors and aromatic as it is being swallowed.
Sampler@Ølfestival København 2010.
One of the remarkable ones!

Draught at Lord Nelson. Amber body with a steady fluffy white head. Typical Nelson Sauvin hop aroma with notes of peach, passion fruit, light burned rubber and citrus.
