COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.

Pale beer with plenty of malted wheat for a balanced mouth feel. Well hopped with Cascade hops for both bittering and aroma. Rainbows End was the name of the café at the terminus of Ashover light railway which is to be returned to its original site in 2008.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 20, 2009
Cask (handpump) at the Victoria, Lincoln, April 2008. Rather similar to the Spire Whiter Shade of Pale that I tried just before. Not, perhaps, surprising as both have a proportion of wheat in the mash. More surprising that they both exhibited a strong lemon character when this one uses cascade and the Spire specifically excluded grapefruit hops. The end results were similar - clean, sharp and hoppy but a little short of complexity.

Svesse (6044) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2009
(Cask at GBBF, London Earl’s Court, 5 Aug 2009) Golden yellow colour with frothy, off-white head. Fruity, hoppy nose with notes of citrus, grass and pineapple. Fruity taste with grass, citrus, tropical fruit and a decent, citrussy bitternes in the finish. Rather light body with some sweetenss. Fresh citrussy hop character. Nice and refreshing.
