Smell of tart blossom and bitter honey. Flavour is grainy with tastes of flowers/pollen and again, some honey. Sort of light but complex at the same time. Aftertaste is corn like.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Transferring some earlier reviews from my blog to RB. Märts 2014, City Beverage, London, £ 3,00. Toonilt hele, klaar merevaik. Vahtu vähe, taandub aegamisi kirmeks. Absoluutselt valge veini aroomiga! See on samas ka midagi kirbet, keemilist, konservilikku. Kuskil kirjeldasin midagi kui "toores karamell" - siingi tahaks sama öelda. Maitses on mandariinilik hapukus, ananass, veidi lääget magusust. Tunda ka kleepjat vaigusust ja parajat mõrksust, mis alguses näikse magusust domineerivat, kuid järelmaik jääb ikka tuntavalt (noore) valge veini toores hapukas, mis ausalt öeldes ei tundu kuigi sümpaatne. Kerge keha, ergas mull, oleks kindlasti hea suvine janukustutaja. Siiski, ma ei ole veel suutnud Nelson Sauviniga suureks sõbraks saada. Ütleme, et vähemalt hariv jook.

Bottle from Archive Beer Boutique March 2014. Quirky labels and good beer. Dark amber with a tidy head. There is a hidden sweetness in this beer but you have to work to find it.

3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
33cl bottle. Orangish golden colour with a small white head. Fruity aroma. Average to heavy carbonation and medium body. Taste quite bitter, but a bit masked by the exaggerated carbonation. Overall, could be an excellent beer but did I mentioned the carbonation problem?

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
4.8% ABV. "Maori" Pale Ale.
All you need to do is close your eyes and your head fills with visions of vines pregnant and heavy with fruit. That’s the whole idea after all. You get all this courtesy of the Nelson Savin hop which also lends so much brightness to Buxton’s Axe Edge.
The first mouthful is full of bubbly bright carbonation, just bordering on silly, but not quite. I’m not sure the Munich malt was the right decision, but I’ll be the last to question a brewmaster and all the good work that brewmasters do and all the joy they bring into the world. It was a little heavy, a little salty and gave a very promising nose some very weird malty, wheaty finishing notes on the palate.
Ok, but not going on my favorites list. Hugs and kisses to the brewmaster though for having enough integrity to go big.
