3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottle at Bar & Cigar, march 1st 2013. A Single hop Nelson Sauvin pale ale, can’t let that pass! A clear golden body with almost no head got me thinking maybe I was wrong? Lookskind of boring doesn’t it? Well, one shouldn’t be fooled by the look, and in this case that’s absolutely true, a unmistakable peach and grapefruit aroma fromthe Nelson strikes me as soon as I lift the glass. Moving the glass carefully to the nose because I was distracted by something that DID look good I poured my glass way too full, the fruity characteristics are really strong, and finally there’s some malt,bread notes too. Not much, this beer seemsto be all about the hop, which I can’t blame anyone for. On to the taste, the hops are totally dominating here too, fruity with a slightly grassy stinch, some sweetness letting through, but the bitterness does it’s job very well and could easily be mistaken for an ipa, as I later read the label said too. No points for guessing the aftertaste. Yup, fruity, grapefruit mostly, lasting, and a very good first beer for the day.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 33 cl. Clear golden with a dense white head, quickly diminishing becoming a small fine layer. Very fresh fruity hoppy aroma of passionfruit, kiwi, lime, light vanilla. Quite enticing. Flavor is medium sweet light maltiness and lots of fruity hops, leading to a medium bitter finish. Very well balanced with a light body, but the oily hops make this is a perfect quencher and by far the best beer I’ve so far from Ugly Duck.
