Cask & Cold Filtered Bottle; Regular.
Typical of a New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc wine, this wonderful South Pacific Ale has a great grassy nose with kiwi fruits in abundance. The wonderful fruity mouth gives way to a great bitter finish. 5.2%

Bottle. Golden colour medium head that lasts well. Aroma is great, lots of hops and grapefruit. Taste is citrus, lots of grapefruit with a dry bitter finish. A very nice beer.

Senka (422) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JUL 28, 2014
50cl. BBE 02.12.14. Strong aroma of pine and spruce. Fruity and somewhat resembles Brewers Gold (just made a homebrew and have some left to sniff). Pours clear pale lager like, with a thick creamy head that stays - and that makes it APA. Strong carbonation alongside medium body makes and extremely easily drinkable and refreshing beer. Tempting and lovely. Thx Anton! P.S. Actually I remembered having it @Pudel Bar Tallinn - got so overwhelmed with the taste, that I forgot to tick it.

500ml bottle from Waitrose. Medium bubbly white head, some nice lacing. Clear golden body. Big tropical nose, mango and pineapple. Flavour is tropical fruit and lots of grassy bitterness on the finish. Medium carbonation, mouthfeel is quite big. The Nelson Sauvin shines here.

Beerheart65 (976) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2014
Just slightly hazy golden, dense almost cheese-like white thin head that persists nicely and leaves ok lacing. Mild citrus, notes of tropicality, mild pine, nuanced malt underneath this. Round soft feel, dry and mildly bitter, low carbonation, medium long finish, medium body. Tasty and soft toned nuanced and quite refreshing, nice.

Botella de 50 cl, adquirida en Slainte. Color dorado claro. Sabor a lupulo, ligeramente frutal, muy ligeramente especiado. Extremadamente refrescante y facil de beber.

Bottle from Glug Newcastle. Pours light cloudy gold colour. Beautiful stuff - extremely flavoursome fruity hoppy pale ale - extremely refreshing and one of the best examples of one of the UK's best breweries

Soft and extremely balanced pale ale, citric and refreshing with grains and hops. Very nice but jaipur is better!

mzaar (1547) - Varberg, SWEDEN - JUN 24, 2014
På fat. Dimmigt guldfärgad med medelstort vitt skum. Såväl i smak som doft är det en hel del friska frukter, därtill en touch av karamell och tallbarr. Medelstor beska, medelsötma. Lättdrucken.

chimpgibbon (286) - London, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 22, 2014
Bottle. Pale gold, medium head and good bubbles. Lovely light aroma of hops; little funk, tropical fruit and spice coming through. Foamy mouthfeel. Medium dry end and a touch of sweetness from the malts. Better on the nose than taste. Pretty decent but nowhere near as good as Jaipur.

Bottle from stags head, Sheffield. Bright yellow ale with a persistent white head. Citrus and grassy on the nose. Taste is quite mild, not too bitter but with plenty of PA characteristics. Medium carb and body. Nice.

humlelala (953) - DENMARK - JUN 17, 2014
(on keg @ The Grain Loft) Pours a clear golden with medium, creamy white head that sticks around and leaves beautiful lace. Aroma is nicely hoppy with notes of tropical fruit, peach and gooseberries. Oily texture, light body, soft carbonation and a dry, slightly bitter finish Flavour is hop-driven with the emphasis on aroma notes and only little bitterness. Could be a bit more hoppy as it is close to getting a little watery at times but I understand the desire to give this beer a broader appeal.
