Tried from cask at CASK pub & Kitchen in Pimlico, London.

Pours a very clear golden colour, light in the body with a foamy coarse white head. Lace forms in sudsy rings. Tilting gives some minimal but slightly powdery carbonation. Looks decent enough.

Sharp on the nose with that classic, almost acidic Nelson Sauvin character—feels like they've gone a bit nuts with it. Gooseberry and cat pee, almond paste and marzipan. Not much body or sweetness behind it, but at least they're not shrinking away from the name.

Light crisp entry on the palate with a hint of smoothness underneath to back it up. This continues into the mid-palate, giving some neutral malt and not a lot of sweetness. Hops come through on the back, giving a tingling sting of bitterness—it's more balanced than I expected from the aroma, although that weird NS acid cloys a little in the aftertaste. Feel is smooth and satiny.

Nicely balanced eventually. It's fairly light and very easy to drink. Tastes good from a hand-pull in particular.

Golden amber body that is slightly cloudy though this could be it being bottle conditioned and surging a bit surging but this means quite a handsome white head.

If they made pineapple swizzle dip
it would be the aroma from this bottle

Fruity but dry quite like a white wine with gooseberry notes and a bitter finish
quite a peppery big bitter finish though

Slightly spritely easy drinking mouthfeel counters a lot of taste

This is just a nice balance between US & UK PA
