COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask conditioned; special For this week only, other pubs will be green with envy as Nicholsonís serves the limited addition "Moor Envy", a green hopped beer from our lovely friends in Somerset. Brewed in collaboration with Nicholsonís 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 Nicholsonís ale while it lasts. It will be another year until we brew it again!

Growler (keg). Just hazy gold with a large white head that lasts well. Aroma of lemon flowers, kaffir lime, leafy herbs. Fairly dry with a little white peachy sweetness under citrus thatís more wafty than punchy. Some pepper at the end too. Pretty good, hits the spot on a warm night.

On keg at the Barley Mow, Bristol 14/11/2013. Slightly hazy gold, with a thin white head and plenty of fizz. Tangerine and stone fruits, biscuity malts, a touch of grassy hops and dryish finish. Good.

Cask @ Inn Deep. Hazy yellow amber, not much head. Mild biscuit resin aroma. Flowery grain flavour. Quite smooth with citrus aftertaste. Solid golden ale.

Theydon_Bois (8114) - The íSham, Surrey, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2013
Cask at the Euston Tap, 17/10/13. Hazed golden with a moderate white head that retains well, good lacing ensues. Nose is citric fruit, light spice, toasty maltage, earthy light hop presence. Taste comprises orange pith, nutmeg, toasted malts, lemon drizzle, spice. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth and massageing on the palatial, light grassy bitterness in the finish. Solid enough GB, perhaps expected a little more from Moor !

Scopey (6661) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 19, 2013
Keg at the Well and Bucket, Shoreditch. It pours hazy pale golden orange with thick white head. The nose is fresh, orange, tangerine, apricot, minerals and sherbet. The taste is crisp, orange, tangerine, minerals, grass, straw and pepper with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Crisp, juicy and very drinkable stuff.

Cask at the Euston Tap - London. Pours mostly clear yellow with a fine, foamy white head. Dry lemon nose, some straw. Light sweet flavor with rindy citrus, lemon rind, mild lemon jam, some minerals, bitter hay. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Good condition. More bitter lemon rind on the finish with further dry minerals and hay. Decent.

Cask at The Feathers (Nicholsonís pub), Broadway, London SW1. A dark golden coloured pour with a medium fluffy white head. Sweet, fruity aroma. Tastes quite sweet, hoppy, fruity, slight bitterness. Quite pleasant and very easy to drink.

maeib (8640) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - OCT 31, 2011
Cask conditioned Handpump Chequers Oxford. (Unfined). A golden coloured beer with just a slight haze and a whitish head. Sweet and apply in the aroma. A bit of green apple in the mouth amongst fairly sharp bitterness and late citricity. Way below my expectations for Moor.

dynamiteninja (1488) - Richmond, North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 16, 2011
Cask. Harkers, York. Maybe not in the best nick. Medium white head. Amber body. Massive attack of red fruit and citrus. Nutty. Healthy amount of bitterness, enough to make the tongue wretch. Bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. Literally amazed that First Gold hops can create such bitterness and citric flavours like the American hops.
