Cask; Regular.
Originally an experimental "Outlaw" beer, subsequently became a regular brew.
Pale coloured beer. Golden Promise malt and New Zealand and US hops. Amazing aromas closely mirror those of the Sauvignon grape. Moderately bittered. Long finish

Cask @ Euston Tap. Light golden color with a small white head. The aroma’s of tropical fruit, grapefruit, pineapple, pacific sea breeze. The taste is fruity, full of lemon zest. Midly hoppy with a not particularly bitter finish. Light body, subtle carbonation. Overall, quite nice.

The star middlesbrough. Served in great condition. Wonderfully aromatic with tropical fruits and grapefruit. Always thought that nelson sauvin needs a strong malt backbone in order to succeed and this is the minimum requirement. Pretty decent. Drink it if you find it

Leighton (10960) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 14, 2011
Cask at The Lord Aberconway, Nicholson’s, London. Pours clear gold with a foamy, white head. Grassy hops and citrus rind aroma. Light to medium sweet flavor, harsh grass and rind, some light earth, toast. Light bodied with average carbonation. Dandelions and grass in the finish. Quite dry, slightly sticky, with modest sugar. Decent.

UPDATED: NOV 29, 2011 Cask in Crown and Sceptre. Colour is pale yellow. Nose is lovely grapefruit and passion fruit with some real zesty citrous. Taste is pithy grapefruit and lime bitter. Very light bodied and light in the mouth. Re-rated from 3.6 to 3.8 at The Green Man. Juicy zesty citrousy beer. Damn good.

poured a golden straw with a tight white head. lovely fruity aroma. lots of grapefruit and passion fruit. quaffable/thin in the mouth with a mostly grapefruit flavour and a good long bitter finish. just what I needed on this strangely hot afternoon outside the Tap & Spile in Harrogate. reminiscent of yankee, but not on a par.

AleManTom (195) - Chapel en le Frith, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - SEP 26, 2011
Half pint @ Old Hall Beer Festival in Chinley. An explosion of fruit flavours on the nose, grapes, gooseberries and guava. Well bittered, nice long finish. Thoroughly refreshing beer. Yellow colour, bit of a head but not much. Loved this one.

@ The White Horse, zona Parsons Green, Londra; il barista l’ha descritta come "very pale", a me il colore sembrava dorato. C’è del nelson sauvin ma è andata giù come acqua, davvero buona ed esile da bere come la maggior parte delle real ales inglesi.

Cask (gravity dispense) at Kingston Beer Festival on 13 May 2011. Gold colour. No head to speak of but lively condition. Quite delicate, soft and perfumed. Some flowery and leafy gooseberry character but quite restrained. Roosters deserve plaudits for being one of the pioneers of using exotic hop varieties but I think I’ve come to expect a slightly more assertive hop burst in these relatively low strength aromatic hop-led beers in recent times. Overall though an amiable, easy-drinking and refreshing quaffer.

Rune (8042) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 20, 2010
Cask, half pint, served lightly chilled in a mug at the North Bar in Leeds. Golden body topped by a film type layer. Aroma of fruity hops. Hints of lemon and grapefruits in flavour rounded off by a dry bitter ending. Very refreshing and paired well with local made cheese (Sunday pub crawl in Leeds, 11.07.2010).
