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!

hawthorne00 (2953) - Melbourne, AUSTRALIA - FEB 7, 2014
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 that’s more wafty than punchy. Some pepper at the end too. Pretty good, hits the spot on a warm night.
