Beer With Hops – 5.5% ABV
*Nelson Sauvignon

A: Beer with Hops pours another super clear and light garnished goldenrod color. Adorned with a finger of white creamy head and sticky tracks of lace.

S: Smells just of fresh Nelson Sauvignon hops. That signature white wine and grapefruit combo.

T: Taste is pure Nelsons as well. Blasts of white wine grapes and grapefruit essence. Malt is not even there. Just some light sugars potent with the Nelsons. A full Nelson showcase. Super light and sessionable.

M: Super light in body. Creamy with a resinous mouthcoat and dry crisp finish.

D: You must like the Nelsons to go for this one. A super light and sessionable Pale loaded with Nelson hops.
I can drink this for days but I know that the Nelsons aren’t for everyone.

On cask at Pizza Port Real Ale 2011.

A: Hazed golden orange with a white cap.

S: Stone fruit with light tangerine and orange. No real malt influence. White grape.

T: Grapefruit and white grapes with some tangerine and orange. Faint malt influence. Pretty mellow.

M: Lower medium in body with low carbonation. Mouthfeel is smooth and sticky.

Overall: Nice and very drinkable, but pretty mellow.
