Keg at the Dean Swift SE1. High carbonation, huge head, amber colour. Lots going on, quite funky sour, fruity sweet, bitter. Some underlying booze, gives it some oomph. I like this kind of beer, maybe not the smoothest or best balanced but interesting.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Keg at Dean Swift. Hazy golden with big white head. Smell initially maxe me think of a hefe, banana and clove, quite estery, little grapfruit. Taste has lots of yeast esters, banana, citrus, grapefruit, quite earthy. Very fizzy then a sticky and bitter finish. Bit messy, not that in to this

Bottle from Coppers, Newcastle. This cloudy orange-amber beer pours with a large foamy head. It has sweet fruity elderflower and earthy notes, a very creamy mouthfeel and sweet lemon and vanilla on the spicy finish.

Bottle from Kris Wines. Bottled May 2013. Cloudy amber colour, big white head. Yeasty, slightly spicy aroma with a touch of citrus. It’s OK - the yeast is pretty prevalent, but there’s citrus, a touch of sourness and definite spiciness there - a little pepper. It’s decent and fairly well balanced, certainly when it comes to the booze which barely raises its head.

18th July 2013
Very hazy dark amber beer, good pale cream coloured head. Palate is light and airy with minerally carbonation. Light sweet malt base. Light lactose and sweetish yeast in the mid. Touch of generic fruit. Finishes semi dry. Okay but not getting much Nelson character.

Keg Old Fountain London 08/07/13. A hazy light brown coloured beer with a bright white head and lace. A lovely funky yet hoppy beer. Great flavours. Great fizzy texture. Great hops. So well constructed and very easy to drink. Doesn’t drink its ABV either. Very nice.

3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 17/20
Keg at CBC Clerkenwell. It pours a slightly hazy golden colour with 1 finger of white soapy head. Aroma is fresh and hoppy, quite zesty with notes of agrumes. Taste is similarly light bitter with some floral hops and grass, some yeasts and bread, some sourness and funk. Nice hop bite in this one. Good

Bottle at The Bottle Shop Canterbury. Hazy gold lasting off white head. Its a bit bleachy with the combination of the hop and the saison yeast. Ok ish.
