Salt Beer Factory Drawboy (6%)

Salt’s India Pale Lager has all the smooth creamy caramel and brioche, runny honey and bread crusts you’d expect from a beautifully lagered beer.
The body is soft and round, with a prickle of clear gin warmth from the alcohol.
But it’s the Nelson Sauvin I found first.
The delightful pithiness of gooseberries and green grape skins, not only wafting up at me as I poured, but bursting on my tongue as I took my first swig.
There’s also the sharp slap of Citra’s sherbet lemon brightness and the keen dry greenery of Ekuanot, but it’s the way that the Nelson Sauvin works across the buttery malt heart of this beer that makes it something a little bit special.
