3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Tap @ John Bull Pub. Hazy holden, small white head. Aroma is very hoppy nelson, but more mineral than usually and not as fruity. Notes of grass, grapefruit, lime, hemp and oranges. Small malty presence. Taste is more genuine Nelson hop with tangerine, Sauvignon Blanc grape notes, lime and green apples. Good bitter palate with only a hint of malt sweetness - dry finish with lingering bitterness. Not too shabby, although disappointing on the nose.
