3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Tap at eni-bru. Cloudy deep orange-gold. Interesting nose, citrus, passionfruit, some off-putting b.o. The flavour is more on point, juicy tropical fruit, slight pine, grapefruit, berries, nice malt backing. Moderately bitter, quite a light body, and smooth drinking. The stank puts me off till the end but overall it works.

Tap at Gremlin. Nice aroma, fruity, citrus plus some earthiness. Taste is very nice. Lots of tropical fruit, mango, pineapple, light citrus. Little grainy. Good stuff.

Draught at 1020. Deep bronze with lace. Nice Nelson hop nose, grassy and fresh. Great grassy hop flavor, medium malt, ok sweetness, light cat piss—very light. Smooth and full. Pretty great stuff.

Mmmmm. What a delight. A light, refreshing, though killer single hop beer. Some passion fruit and piney citrus wafts from the glass. First sip I wasn’t too fussed, but this really started to take on a life of it’s own as it wound it’s way down the glass. Classy is the adj most fitting of this beer. The NS plays it’s part to a T, a it has a wonderful, light body that just accentuated the whole package. No off cat piss flavours. Top notch and a bucket more.
