Beer Of The Day - Mallinsons 'Nelson Sauvin'

You knew there would be one soon !

Mallinsons have been brewing in Huddersfield since 2008. They are noted for brewing their light, hoppy beers, (that is not to say this their only style but it does tend to predominate their range). In amongst the plethora of double hopped and triple hopped beers they still produce a fair amount of single hopped beers and today's choice is one of them.

I encountered it at the Sportsman, and quite frankly I had forgotten how good it is. It is single hopped with Nelson Sauvin hops from New Zealand. They bring a distinctive hop flavour to the beer, with citrus and grapefruit notes to the fore. At 3.9% it is a sensible quaffing strength and this and its crisp taste makes it an ideal beer for a summer's day. Search it out on cask or in bottles.
