In cricket, ‘Nelson’ is a superstitious term used when a score, or multiple, of 111 is reached – 222 is a Double Nelson, 333 is a Triple Nelson, and so on. What that has to do with this beer is anyone’s guess, but it’s certainly another multi-layered moniker that plays on the English-ness of all the Lord’s beers. But, ironically, the Double Nelson is actually their take on an American-style Pale Ale, and a quite fine one at that. It has the highly-hopped citrus and pine characters you’d expect of the style, with a dry, bitter caramel finish from the malt billing. But despite so much flavour packed in, it’s a surprisingly refreshing ale. You may want to double up.

Pours thick, dense orange. Floral aroma. Mandarin also. Hoppy on the tongue but with nice orange finish. Has bitterness in finish but not overtly strong. Has American west coast feel. Nice flavours. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

KeefOz (1138) - Tarragindi, AUSTRALIA - JUL 25, 2014
Best After 11/Feb/15. Poured a hazy orangey amber with a one- to two-finger off white foamy head that retained very well and laced OK. Carbonation high and fine. Aroma very nice and moderately strong of sweet floral hops, citrus, fruits. Taste slightly sweet malt followed by floral, citrus and fruity hops; hops dominated. Light body. Crisp, very flavoursome and with a moderately bitter finish. One to sip and enjoy. Very good!

Jado (657) - Camp Hill, AUSTRALIA - JUL 11, 2014
From 500 ml bottle. Pours a slightly hazy orange-amber with a small but lasting white head. Moderate carbonation. Aromas of pine needles, orange zest, lemon and flowers. Taste is sweet malt at the front before a fairly restrained but noticeable lemon and pine resin bitterness washes in. Collapses a little at the end into a light tropical fruit finish. Gentle peppery aftertaste. Not bad at all.

maneliquor (3469) - Perth, AUSTRALIA - MAY 20, 2014
Bottle thanks to Lee. Pours hazy orange with a small white head. Nose is quite floral and herbal in front of the bright stone fruit. A lot more ’green’ than I was expecting. Tastes of flowers and mild tropical fruits with a rather sweet and sticky malt base - almost cheap, and a short finish. Drinks more like a pale rather than the IPA it’s marketed as. Odd one

Sevenlee (1566) - Central Coast, NSW, AUSTRALIA - APR 18, 2014
Pours a hazy amber colour with an off-white head. Aroma is malt, fruit, pine, citrus, floral notes and hops. Taste is medium sweet leading to a nicely balance hoppy finish. Pretty good stuff!

Gramoit (377) - AUSTRALIA - FEB 2, 2014
Very flavoursome, with plenty of hops but with the standard strong malt backbone you get with Lord nelson beers.

On tap at Archive. Hazy vibrant orange colour with a citrus like aroma. The flavour was floral hops with a sweet backdrop. Another good beer from Lord Nelson.
