2.3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Tried on tap at pomeroys pours a pale gold without much head. Slightly zesty but insipid on the palate pretty disappointing.

(Bottle 50 cl) Slightly hazy pale golden with a small, white head. Aroma of citrus and a little yeast. Medium-bodied with notes of yeast, citrus and banana. Fairly bitter and astringent finish. Mostly reminds me of a light Belgian Blonde. 210208

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Light slightly hazy body with short head. Citrus and fruit in general in the aroma. "Hopsy" aftertaste. Nice beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, gold with a foamy white head. A complex aroma with both malt and hops coming through clearly, along with a little bit of yeast. The malt adds some sweetness, while the hops bring through some stewed fruits. On the palate, there is again a good balance between the malt and the hops. Some fruity flavours are released at first, but then it becomes cleaner and drier along with grainy malts.

Batch 1035 Beautiful pale straw yellow colour. Milky head. Distinguished dusty, slight citrus aroma. Great mouthfeel - bitterness and a real tang that begs for the next drink. I like this.

3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tasted 05/02/2007. 500ml bottle from New World Miramar.
Pours a watery straw gold, almost like a clear wheat beer, with a pure white thin head. Lychee notes, slightly vinous, on the very clean nose. You certainly get the whole Nelson Sauvin aroma here. Aromatics carry through in the mouth, carried by a light and softly carbonated mouthfeel. Hop character is almost like a German noble (herbal, lemony), and feels oily, with a pleasant, lingering, mild bitterness. Begs you for another sip. Easy drinking and very enjoyable for someone who loves Sauvin hops but others may struggle. I love this beers simplicity.
