3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold with white head. Sharp, crystal malts lead to a fruity spicy hop, gooseberries and a hint of avocado, fairly bitter and dry. A really decent example of New Zealand hops.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask conditioned gravity dispense Queen Adelaide Northampton. A yellowy golden beer with a nice white head. Typical Nelson sauvin nose with frjuits and a little toffee sweetness. Good sticky gooseberry flavours. A very nice NS taste although the sweetness in the nose is a bit off-putting. Went down though.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask handpull, The Wellie, Brum. Brassy gold under a fine white-bubbled film. Pulpy, flowery, exotic fruit aroma with a dab of sulphur. Really clean malts dominate; bread and toasted nuts lingering well after the swallow. The NZ hops bring a soapy bitterness and some succulent papaya and passion fruit notes to the table. Huge length- the kind of beer you can taste half an hour later. Another fine beer from Sadlerís, who (by their standards) seem to have gone slightly berserk with the hops of late. I approve.
