3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
.50 bottle. Light orange, hazy. Fruity nose. Citrus, rubarb, some tropicality. Gooseberries. A bit of caramel from the malts. And some cardboard, unfortunately. Body is a bit thinnish. Dry. But full of flavor though. Nice brew, nice apa. But with a bit of oxidation and yeast residue. Not super clean in other words, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. Feels authentic, like a good home brew.

3.1 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
(33 cl bottle from Fish’n’Beer; BBD: March 26th 2013) Pours a hazy amber with medium, creamy white head. Good retention and lace. Aroma is somewhat disappointingly grassy and cereal with hints of something that smells skunked to me. Definitely not remniscient of the Nelson Sauvin that I’ve come to know and love. Oily texture, full body with medium carbonation and a lingering, bitter finish. Flavour is much better than the aroma. Well balanced and with a slight bitterness in the end that makes you want to taste more.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Chopp @ Lord Nelson. Hazy nice golden colour with a nice big white head. Well lasting. Fresh soft sweet like fruity sweet hoppy aroma with pine and citrus, well balanced. Good mouthfeel indeed. The flavour is fresh, soft and just so good: fruity hoppiness with citrus and pine along with some maltiness and bit spice like too. Bit yeasty. Well lasting pleasant fruity hoppy piney citrus sweet finish. Goood bitterness. Yummmmmmm.

Body is medium, malty and lightly dryish flavor, light tropical fruitiness and faint caramel, citrus - grassy hoppyness.
