kempicus (343) - Bakewell, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - DEC 2, 2008
Tried on tap at pomeroys pours a pale gold without much head. Slightly zesty but insipid on the palate pretty disappointing.

Papsoe (25088) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 23, 2008
(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

Plimmer (252) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - FEB 3, 2008
Light slightly hazy body with short head. Citrus and fruit in general in the aroma. "Hopsy" aftertaste. Nice beer.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - NOV 25, 2007
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.

bozoNZ (719) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 10, 2007
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.

beerledgend (1197) - Waterloo, Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 21, 2007
Pale yellow straw colour with big creamy white head. Interesting aroma, lemon, honey and grassy hops. Mild herbous hop flavour, slight bitterness. Milky dry finish.

yalnikim (800) - Wellington, NEW ZEALAND - FEB 4, 2007
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.
