Hops in the nose. Large pale head. Slightly hazy golden color. Quite hoppy malty and grassy taste. At the end hop bitterness. JanLaursen (3226) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - APR 6, 2013
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. visionthing (5596) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - APR 5, 2013
33cl bottle from Ølhandleriet, Oslo. Pours slightly hazy (dark) golden with a white head. Hoppy aroma with tropical fruits, malt, grapefruit and hints of pine and grass. Medium body slightly soft carbonation. Moderate sweet and quite fruity with a nice bitterness in the finish. Well balanced and quite delicious. liinis (1791) - Helsinki, FINLAND - MAR 29, 2013
A bit too heavy on the nelson hops although I am a hop lover. Still enjoyable though. Beer5000 (6824) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - MAR 20, 2013
330 ml bottle @ Øltorget, Mathallen Oslo. Slightly hazy golden body with a small off-white head. Fantastic fruity aroma dominated by Nelson hops, tropical and grapes. Flavor is soft and smooth malty with fruit and quite much bitterness. Medium to thin body, but definitively acceptable at 4,6% ABV. Aftertaste has a sharp grassy bitterness. A fine, refreshing and tasty session pale ale with quite good balance. Think I may pull the lawnmower a few times with this as a reward.

Nelson humlen dufter himmelsk som altid, og har noter af frisk ananas. Øllet står flot i glasset, og skummet er tæt og vedholdende. På trods af den lave alkoholprocent har den en god smag og fylde. Dog en anelse vandet, men overall en rigtig fin pale ale.
