COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
May those long suffering AT HER MAJESTY’S PLEASURE be granted a sweet reprieve in these days of despairing heat. A fine English style with feudal offerings of vinous hops, coriander and orange peel, is sure to ease the commoner’s burden after a day of toll. And though the asperity of the queen knows no bounds, hold your hopes and glasses high and drink deep of this liquid rebellion!

22 oz bottle from Gerrit. Thanks, dude. Pours a richer hazed golden hue, a bit dulled. Frothy whitish head dies to a mellow film, laces ok. Aromas are gentle white grape, firm bitter florals, lemons, and grass. Florals, touches of spice, mellow dryness and gentle bready malts. Initial is light bodied, quite drinkable with a firmly Nelson nose, white grape and lemon firmly play with florals, grass, and gentle dryness that grows into a firm or rich presence. Some bread, biscuits, kiss of grainy sweetness, wet. Some dryness, rich Nelson, gentle spice and biscuits. Really well done. Rich Nelson hop presence sets the pace, middle gives a kiss of biscuit with bread, but dryness returns into the backend and finish. Wow, hoppy and a touch of spice, mellow light malt, overall the beer really preaches flavor yet feeling quite light. Very tasty.

22 oz. bottle. Pours an orange amber color with a medium sized white head. The aroma had nice citrus (orange, grapefruit) and resiny hops, orange peel,light spices and mild white grape notes. The malts were very much in the background. The flavor was also more hop forward; citrus, orange, grapefruit, white grapes, herbal, with light malts and mild bitterness. Medium bodied.

750 ml bottle to taster (shared by DanielCoor). Looks solid; a hazy golden orange with AMPLE white head. Smells somewhat hoppy with a big, boozy pale malt backbone. Tastes like it smells, only milder, with an average mouthfeel. Alright.

Strykzone (4911) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 8, 2013
Sampled at esbls. Hazed kind of dingy gold. I got the bottom of the bottle. Coriander and orange definitely lead the aroma. Soft hops and fruit are a nice mix. The hops are fairly bold. Nicely done.

dmac (3998) - Toms River, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2013
Bottle shared at jcwatts going back to FL tasting. Poured a mostly clear super light amber with a smaller foamy white head. Aroma of honey, sweetness, toast, sweeet citrus pulp. touch of soap. Body is a bit on the dry side with stronger carbonation and a touch of heat for the low ABV. Flavor of dry grapefruit rind, dry toast, alcohol and citrus friut. Meh.

Bottle. Pours pale hazy gold with white head. Aroma has a great green grape and cat box, some nice peach fuzz hidden back there too. Flavors are fresh nelson grapey and catty with subtle coriander and florals. Really spicy and hoppy backend. Crisp, light, hoppy, spicy, delicious. Dry and refreshing. Some booze detected on the finish but this is excellent stuff.

wlajwl (3814) - Quad Cities, Iowa, USA - MAR 9, 2013
Aroma is tropical fruit/resinous hops, fruit and an undercurrent of malts. The flavor is tropical fruit, fruit, biscuit malts, light strawberry/berry sweetness and a dryish/tart finish.

Bottle sampled in Wicker Park. Much bigger version than the pilot batch was, but this works for sure. Pours gold with a heavy haze and sticky head. Nose is bright Nelson Sauvin. Gooseberries and a touch catty. Light yeasty esters and toasty malts. On tasting, super clean and almost elegant. Showcase of the tropical fruit that you can get from the NS. Plenty of malt support. Fantastic stuff.

22oz bottle picked up at wlv... pours a mostly hazy and non-transparent hefe like hue, lively with effervescence, and topped with a thin to medium soapy white head... fresh hop aroma of dank citrus tones and white grape to go alongside some juicy white grapefruit. love nelson and was happy to see if bursting out from this one... flavors follow suit with more juicy focused nelson forward focus which displayed notes of grapefruit and orange as well as the white grapiness that is normally associated with nelson sauvin. it’s almost more of a really hoppy wheat with the citrusy overtones and light malt backing. midway through, a gentle tartness surfaces to go along with a just shy of medium body with adequate carbonation. glad this wasn’t a true english style pale ale and the fellas allowed the nelson to showcase itself almost exclusively and that, to me, was a very good thing. very little bitterness to this one - almost forgot to mention that. let’s hope that pw has a steady supply of this hop coming in for them to utilize. hmmm, i think i drank this one a bit too fast.
