The hurt of them being sold to a global giant is tempered by the fact there has not yet been a discernible change to taste. Was on this before the takeover and happy to report the Ale is still refreshing after. Soft floral aromas/taste and not too heavy make this a great session-beer option.

375mL can. Poured pale gold with a white foamy head and light carbonation. Fresh summery aromas in the glass, with touches of tropical fruits, pineapple and passionfruit. Palate more restrained, light and crisp with subtle citrus bitterness to finish. Light ’n’ easy.

From can in shaker. Very light golden hue with a burst of fruity hops on the nose. Quite lively and refreshing, hints of grapefruit remind me a bit of Fresca. Very nice for hot weather.

BB 18/05/16. Poured a clear pale straw colour with a two-finger white dense foam head that retained OK and laced OK. Carbonation low and medium. Aroma subtly of nice tropical fruits - grapefruit, passionfruit, possibly pineapple, possibly melon plus sweet malt. Taste of pineapple, passionfruit and subtle grapefruit; nice flavours; subdued bitterness (there but not over-powering). Light body. Crisp, fresh with a lingering slight but nice bitterness on the finish. Quite nice!

From a can. It’s pretty much as you would expect, light, fresh, crisp and sessionable.

Crack.... loads of passionfruit and pineapple leap out of the can. Flavour is lots of tropical fruit which dies quickly into some slight biscuit. Great refreshing carbonation. Designed to drink by the 6 pack on 48 degree days.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Not much for the eyes, bright hazy straw colour with a bubbly head that does not stick around. Orange prominent on the nose. Taste is crisp, carbonated bite, dry, typical characteristics of nelson. All in all, nothing overpowering or outstanding, perfect for the muggy summer days.
