Donzoko Indie Graft (4.7%)

Only available through Independent shops, this is a wicked little Pale Ale coupling Nelson Sauvin hops with a Belgian yeast strain.
Right from the off you find green grapes and gooseberries.
It’s that unmistakable Nelson Sauvin thing, and I for one love it.
Dry and fruity, it wafts up at you as you pour and then, once you take a mouthful you enter a world of Goosegogs and white wine that you will never want to leave.
There’s a light and subtle brown sugar, pancake and honey malt body to bring some sweetness and a little roundness to the beer, and the yeast adds its own bang of damp fungal undergrowth, like a walk through damp woodland leaves after the rain.
But it’s the Nelson Sauvin that stars here, it’s bright and shiny and super fresh, and brings you to a long, crisp and very dry climax.
Best partnered with anything by The Television Personalities.
Super stuff.
