3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
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.

2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 8/20
The first breath takes you to Neslon Sauvin heaven with it’s full, crisp and citrus aromatic aroma. Wonderful.... untill the first hop blast disappears... then, will covered by the hops, a unpleasant cheesy tone breaks through. Buh!
The taste is then clearly characterized by the tropical fruit mix, enhenced by an somewhat artificial gummibear taste (hidden in the hops again). Another thing that displeases me, the beer has no body and for an hop forward beer an disappointing slap finish. Even as this is an overhopped Pale Ale (no IPA) with a quite low ABV, there should be more than just a Neslon Sauvin facade.

On tap at Cirkus, Stavanger. Pours almost clear golden with a small white head. Weak grainy aroma with some citrus and piney hops. Taste is light sweet, decent dry citrus hops at the finish, soft carbonated, dry finish with oranges and tangerines, very good and well balanced beer.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle. Pours pale orange with a full creamy white head. An intense fruity smell is coming right out of the bottle before even pouring it. Strong notes of grape fruit, grapes and champagne with passion fruit and some sour apple. Nicely balanced taste, pleasently light sweet with an also light bitter dry finish. Light bodied with medium carbonation and a very smooth mouthfeel. Crisp and refreshing. Flavor is distinctive with an emphasis on grapes and light sweet notes of passion fruit. However, flavor and aroma are not overwhelming. The medium aftertaste is prolonging the drinking experience in a lighter fashion with aroma of grapes and light bitter taste.
