COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Our ‘Maori Pale Ale’ came together after months of experimentation with a very unique hop – Nelson Sauvin from New Zealand. Strong grape flavours are complimented by the sweet Munich malt, makings this beer crisp and refreshing.

Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London 13/05/13. A golden beer with a white head and lace. Noticeable NS hops with a biscuity note. However the expected gooseberry or sauvignon notes just don’t shine and instead it’s just a competent relatively tasty golden ale.

JorisPPattyn (8283) - Ursel, BELGIUM - MAY 20, 2015
Light gushing to thick, bit fluffy off-white head, fed by fine carbonation in clear copperish-orange beer. Very fruity nose, C-hops, but also banana - seems to be a T.R. yeast feature. Citrus, passion fruit, melon. Malt - but I would rather guess Crystal than Munich. Hops too, indeed grapey - typical N.S. Bit watery, though. MF is its weakest point. Carbonation is too omnipresent in this soda-like beer with some good hops and malt. Really not bad - but not great neither.

BrunoSanchez (173) - Fermo, ITALY - MAY 12, 2015
Davvero buona! Ale colore dorato dal profumo maltato, floreale e fruttato. Molto equilibrata e ben bilanciata. In bocca corpo medio con intenso sapore di crosta di pane. Molto molto beverina!

TBone (13700) - Pori, FINLAND - MAY 9, 2015
Bottle at Beer Hunters. Clear golden color, small white head. Fruity, a bit grassy aroma. Light-bodied. Fruity, kind of acidic hoppyness. This is BBE 2016 but doesnt show Nelson Sauvin in full powa. Dissapointment.

zacgillbanks (2955) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2015
Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This hazy golden beer pours with a large rocky foam head. It has lemon fruit and peppery hop flavours, malt, toffee and gentle woody notes followed by an earthy finish.

nihtila (1466) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAR 29, 2015
Bottle at home. Pours clear golden. Aroma is grapefruit, zest, citrus/grassy hops, floral malts. Taste is slightly sweet biscuity and floral maltiness, grapefruit, fruits. Bitter finish.

Jimthechap (1984) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 28, 2015
Some haze in a yellow orange body. Aromas of grapefruit, lemon and orange peel. Flavours of spritzy peach, grapefruit, lemon and gooseberry - all highlights of Sauvin. Good bitterness and strong gooseberry on the finish. A tasty devil this. An ideal session pint.

ogreface (1390) - Budapest, HUNGARY - MAR 17, 2015
Sötét aranyszínű sör, közepes, párnaszerű, kitartó fehér habbal. Illata nagyon szőlős, gyümölcsös, kicsit élesztős, citrusos. Az íze kitölti a szánkat, először sok trópusi gyümölcs és szőlő, aztán jön egy pici fanyarság és kellemes, de nem brutális kitartó keserűség. Könnyű teste van, mégsem érződik vizesnek, utóíze, gyümölcsös, kesernyés és száraz. Forró nyári napokon egész napos itóka lehetne! Nekem nagyon bejött!

King_Alex_II (427) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Muddy golden color, no foam. The smell is shy and a little hoppy. The taste is delightfully hopped, nicely bitter. And is has a terribly irritating tartness that basically ruins the taste a second after you sipped it. Same goes for the aftertaste. Good try, keep trying.

SinH4 (729) - SWITZERLAND - MAR 12, 2015
Hazy orange color with unstable white head. Aroma is a bit wet cellar, grapefruits, tropical fruits, biscuity sweet malts. Taste is refreshing and fruity, but also biscuity. Oh damn. Shouldn’t skim other ratings. Now I found the glue aroma. Quite nice, on the heavier side for this ABV.
