Cask conditioned; special For this week only, other pubs will be green with envy as Nicholson’s serves the limited addition "Moor Envy", a green hopped beer from our lovely friends in Somerset. Brewed in collaboration with Nicholson’s pub managers, this 4.2% blonde beer uses a massive charge of First Gold hops. The hops were picked, left undried (or "green") and brewed within 24 hours, resulting in a beer with a unique hop flavour that can only be achieved once a year. Moor Envy is even greener, as it is unfined, and will retain a natural yeast and hop haze, and even has a slightly green tinge to the colour! Enjoy the subtle hints of vanilla and herbal qualities of the First Gold hops, in this exclusive Nicholson’s ale while it lasts. It will be another year until we brew it again!

A can from the Good Spirits Co Wine & Beer, drunk on the train. The nose is light a bit old fashioned, and slightly dusty. It’s very light bodied. Very creamy carbonation. Green right enough; sappy. Bitter in the finish, and refreshing. Good stuff, although not really what I was looking for this evening.

330ml can from Good Spirits Beer & Wine, Glasgow:
A fresh & simple beer with a lot of citrus, particularly the taste with some good floral flavours & lighter hops backing things up. There was some touches of pine & grapefruit with good bread malts & pleasant sweetness towards the end. The bitterness became more pronounced towards the end but for the most part the beer was quite a balanced one & it proved fairly easy to drink at the same time without ever excelling.

Cask (Dancing Man, Southampton) - Golden ewith a slight haze. Grass, floral hops and some hints of citrus in the aroma. Refreshing and grassy taste with floral hops and notes of orange peel combining to good effect.

On the palate its mild , dry , lightly tart and bitter . I need the hop volume turned on this juan . Not bad but shy .
