4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 17/20
LIVE RATING: Cask at CBI, London on 11th May 2013. Slightly hazy gold with thin white lacing foam. Hoppy aroma with some earthy pungency. Deliciously hoppy in-mouth with rich grassiness and savoury notes. Floral and fruity flavours in the background. Building bitterness in finish, with cheesiness and grass balancing out nicely. Zingy, engaging mouthfeel. A lush pint to sup and savour.

Drunk from Bottle
Aroma wasn’t as good as the flavour. Zingy, hoppy and bouncy taste with a medium bitter aftertaste. A lagery-pale ale perfect for a pub garden in the summer, where a couple would go straight to your head. Less good on a winter’s night, but a nicely made pint nonetheless.

Pale golden, little hazy appearance with decent white head. The aroma is nice hops and fruit. Taste is lots of dry bitter hops and refreshing fruit (citrus or tropical) Medium body, good carbonation. Really nice "drinking beer".

500 ml bottle.
Pours a golden colour with a white foamy head. Aroma is clean and very citrusy with orange zest and strong floral notes. Rich citrusy flavour of citrusy bitterness, floral notes, herbs, biscuit and mild grainy notes. Light bodied, slick mouthfeel and a dry, very bitter, citrusy finish. Refreshing and enjoyable. More please.

Bottle Booths Penrith. It was the words ’Nelson Sauvin’ that appealed to me and I wish they’d shoved more in! Floral, tangy with a biscuit malt backbone. Beautiful pale beer, white head that disappears fairly fast and a faintly metallic finish. Need to try this on cask.

Cask at Gallows bird. Pours almost clear pale golden with a sticky, frothy white head. Aroma has fruit, bit of hay and grass. Fairly full bodied on the tongue, mild carbonation and an appreciable bitterness. Aftertaste is lingering and dry.

3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear golden beer, diminishing white head. Malty aroma, nice and fruity in the beginning, later wet cardboard seems to come through. Slight caramel. Dry fresh crisp flavour, malty with a big hop bite. Touches of white wine on the tongue - guess it is the Nelson Sauvin. Some tropical fruits, some apricot. Very nice. Light carbonation, finish dry, fruity and quite bitter.
