COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Special - September 2012.
A variety that only appeared as recently as 2000, Nelson Sauvin has a unique gooseberry fruit character, akin to the flavours imparted by Sauvignon Blanc grapes to wine. Hints of citrus add further complexity from this remarkable newcomer.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. This looked good but on tasting it seemed a bit tired and over fruity, bready, the hops were pretty much masked instead of being sharp. Maybe there was some grape there with a wine like note, but it wasn’t at its best.

SarkyNorthener (2364) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2012
Cask@cockpyle, wednesfield. Pale clear gold large frothy head. Aroma of citrus fruits. Taste is of citrus, not sure which,maybe a mix, a little bittering involved makes this not overly sour. Smooth palate. This is an interesting drink.

fairwater (135) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 11, 2012
Cask @ Hope Tap. I finally understand why some people say "tarmac" about this hop. Never tasted it in, e.g., Kipling, but there’s something of it here. Not sure I like this one at all, and I adore Kipling. Shame, but not for me.

Crisp and full of fruity flavours - plenty of which have tropical notes. Good aroma to match.
