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.

4.8% ABV. "Maori" Pale Ale. No head. 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.

Clear blond beer, creamy white head, pretty stable, adhesive. Aroma: fruity, white grapes, sweet touch. MF: ok carbon, medium body. Taste: bitter start, some citrus, grapes, some kiwi, soft bitterness. Aftertaste: bit watery, grassy, sourish, lemony. lychee, nice bitterness, lemon peel, dry ending with a lot of fruity notes.

kraddel (3334) - some beerplace, BELGIUM - SEP 13, 2014
Bottle at Barely Legal Tasting Room . Pours yellow, with an orange glow, and good white head . Smell is typical nelson, perfumy , floral . Taste is stonefruit , one of these typical sides of Nelson Sauvin . Carbonation is way to high . Sadly enough , i’m a bit dissapointed after having 2 really good beers by them . This is certainly not a bad beer, but nothing really special, and I just do not like overcarbonation at all .

edsspoon (430) - Nottinghamshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2014
Bottle - poured two glasses, one was clear golden and one had a slight haze so presumably there was sediment in the bottle. Both featured a large bubbly white head which gradually faded to a ring. Aroma of wheat, grass, pear, orange and yeasty notes. Taste is wheat, malt, grass and earth with a hint of lime and some smoke. Medium and very dry body with a prickly carbonation.

gEUS (1058) - Linden, BELGIUM - SEP 2, 2014
330 ml bottle at home. Pours clear light orange with a tiny white head. Subtle grassy hops nose, slight lychee and pink peach. Light on the palate with a refreshing spring soft bitterness, and a buttery crreamy mouthfeel. Taste is a bit bland with green hops towards the end. Quenching and refreshing.

ciaranc (893) - Dublin, IRELAND - AUG 20, 2014
330ml bottle from Redmonds. Clear amber tinted gold pour, big fluffy white head, looks great. Pronounced Nelson Sauvin catpiss nose, perfume floral notes, blueberries too. Flavour is dry bitterness, offset with a minimal fruity sweetness, almost lager-esque. Light body, really fizzy, mild grape and grapefruit in the finish.

Osprey87 (1732) - WALES - AUG 4, 2014
Cask at CPK. Pale amber orange, still, foamy white head, light lacing. Aroma is yeasty, farts. Body is light , touch of carbonation, slightly foamy. Taste is resin, card, metallic. Woah, this is not good. Worst beer I’ve had in ages, actually. Something went terribly wrong somewhere along the line.
