3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A very pale beer with a mild, floral aroma. It’s rather like a less in-your-face citra, I think. Quite mellow and would be perfect as a session beer on a sunny afternoon.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
500ml bottle. Golden shade with fluffy white head. Pillows of white grape, citrus and straw in the aroma. Orange pith, sherbet and a slightly sharp bitterness to the taste. Something a bit vegetal about it though. Quite light in body with above average carb. Started out well but went a bit astray, good though.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at Birmingham Beer Fest ’13. Gold with white head. This certainly does showcase the Nelson Sauvin hop clearly. The beer is crisp with little malt impact, it’s all about the hop, not one of my favourites but there is a clear gooseberry skin note with a wine like background flavour, just a hint of tartness in the hop flavour. It does exactly what it sets out to do.
