3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at the Euston Tap, London. Pours clear yellow with a sturdy, white foam head. Lots of grainy, toasty-grassy hops in the nose, some toasty bread, some very mild citrus notes. Light to medium sweet, some toast, grain, lots of bitter earth, dirt and grass, a bit of orange rind. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Gritty bitter finish, faintly abrasive with dirt, heavy grass, earth, very faint tangy lemon. A characterful beer, but just a touch too aggressive in terms of the bitterness.

Cask gravity, Derby Winter BF, 17/02/12. Pale and pretty much headless. Resinous pine and lemon aroma. Dry and stinging with grapefruit IBUs over a rock solid, pale husky base. Rich tea in stewed Darjeeling afters. Not what I was expecting from Nelson.

Bottle from Great Grog. Pours a slightly murky (whoops)dirty yellow, with a good white head that stays around. Beautiful Nelson nose - grape, apple, tropical fruits. Dry hoppy, slightly bready palate, with a lingering zesty bitterness that punches well above its ABV weight. Fantastic beer.
