Cask at The Devonshire Arms in London. Poured in a dimple mug. Copper color with an off-white smear. Spicy aroma. Flavor is very light caramel with something like ginger spice. Might be clove. Might have some citrus. Very pleasant. Finishes almost neutral bitter/sweet wise. Not a typical wit but very nice.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Three hand-pulled pints in Walthamstow on 6 Apr 2013 (small beer choice in the pub).
Slight haze to this golden/light brew, on top a fairly thin head of white.
Expected more flavour and aroma from a British Wheat beer, lacked the umph of bananas, vanilla I know so well from the German ones. It was OK but no strong taste, hints of wheatiness but subdued and delicate, subtle is a good word to use.
I enjoyed it enough to have three pints anyway.

Cask at the Greyhound (JDW), Maidenhead. Clear amber with loose white head; floury aroma; soft floral taste with a grainy wheat-beer-like body; the finish is dry with some light babana and some citrus. Pleasant and refreshing.

Cask conditioned handpump Mudlark London 19/03/13. A golden beer with an off-white wisp of head. Sweet and spicy. Quite clovely. SOme TCP notes. Clove and perfume in the mouth. Pretty odd really with some dentist’d mouthwash. Doesn’t work for me.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at Hamilton Hall, JDW, London. Pours mostly clear gold with a slight, creamy white cap. Lots of dough, yeast and spices in the nose. Medium sweet flavor with plenty of bready malts, ripe mashed bananas, faint straw bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet finish, very faintly syrupy, with further doughy malts and bananas. Simple but acceptable.
