COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Seasonal - July and August (Good Honest Ales series).
An English style wheat beer, clearly malty and pale. Hallertau hops combined with malted wheat to give a pleasingly clean, yet spicy finsh.

Cask Handpump at the Crescent, Salford 06/07/2001 Light and bland beer. Unpleasant bitter finish.

Cask Conditioned at The Plough, Bodicote. Pale amber and hazy with no head (direct from cask). There is a certain cereal note, but not the spicy tangy flavour you would expect from this style. The beer is quite bitter with a sharp tinny flavour, this rounds off into a malty finish.

Very wheaty aroma, though I'm starting to get an idea of what Hallertau hops do and I don't care for it. Amber color, little ring of head. Woody flavor. I don't know what to make of this beer. Perhaps it is a marketing ploy--it gets "wheat" on the pumpclip so you might associate it with a continental wheat but it doesn't get the advantages of those styles, leaving a semi-bitter cask ale of less interest. (on tap, Turf Tavern, Oxford)

UPDATED: SEP 8, 2004 Much in the style of a typical English cask bitter, quite different from US and German examples. Has that English bitter hop in the finish with a touch of citrus throughout the palate. Satisfying malt and smooth roundness, very flavorful.

i didn’t enjoy it that much, but quite refreshing wheat flavour, a bit soggy i thought at times, but OK, had it super warm in a pub in Winsdor, probably could have been more enjoyable at a slightly lower temp ( not to cool of coures), still i could drink it.
