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@Blue Stoops,Chesterfield. Highly aromatic smell and tastes similar. Clear gold with tight head that lasts quite well. Don,t think it,s quite as good as Yankee,but it gives it a good run for it,s money. This brewery turns out some pretty impressive beers which are distinctive and slightly different from the norm. Another one please,landlord.

foxo82 (804) - Bromsgrove (via Leicester), Worcestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2012
Cask at The Victoria, Birmingham. Typical looking pale ale. Perhaps served a little too cold so lacking flavour. However there is a decent bitter hit. Creamy mouthfeel. Small head but does the business in the lacing department. Refreshing and good but not spectacular.

a_cross (639) - Poole, Dorset, ENGLAND - JUN 6, 2012
Light gold, fairly cloudy, decent head for a beer served in Dorset; citrus and hops dominate; grapefruit, a touch of bitter orange, some peachy notes lurking in the background; hops are piney, puckering and give a notably bitter finish; fairly light mouthfeel but otherwise packs a fair punch for its abv; better balanced than the other similar Roosters beer I’ve had lately (Cogburn), but I’m yet to be won over to the style.

On cask at The Cask and Barrel- Southside. Pours a light golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of passion fruit, pineapple and caramel. Similar flavours with mild carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Mildly bitter and dry to finish.

jackl (5804) - Charlottesville, Virginia, USA - FEB 11, 2012
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 (13985) - 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.
