COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask. Originally a special for JD Wetherspoon Spring Festival 2010 but has reappeared since.
This unusual and distinctive beer has a sweet aroma of peaches and elderflower, perfectly balanced by a hoppy bitterness in both the flavour and finish.

planky84 (2102) - , Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 5, 2014
Cask at the Kidbrooke Beer Festival, 2014. Gold pour with a white head. Heavy peach aroma, tropical fruit, some floral notes. Apricot, peach and citrus flavour. Not bad.

mr_h (2799) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - FEB 8, 2014
Cask by hand-pump at Three Judges, Glasgow - clear golden amber, lively white head, strong floral fruity aroma, sporadic lacing, elderflower and peaches comes through on the flavour, along with pale malt and a dryness, unusual combination of flavours, easy to drink

Cask at Manchester Beer and Cider Festival 22/1/14. Pours a golden colour, taste is light with a peachy taste. Would be perfect in the summer

niquillis (812) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2013
On cask at Cheshire Ring, Hyde. Pours golden with white head, cloudy at first. Overriding taste is peach syrup, there’s probably a decent golden ale behind it, but the sticky peach is overpowering. Shame, I was looking forward to this.

Martin243 (757) - Tyne & Wear, ENGLAND - MAY 6, 2013
Gateshead beer fest. I was quite prepared to be curmudgeonly about this, but it succeeds by a judicious balance between sweet fruitiness, and hop sharpness. The novelty works. Refreshing, and easily the best beer I’ve had from this brewery

Alphadelic (1751) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Light and still this golden summer ale has whipped egg white foam. The aroma is of beautiful bittersweet fresh peaches, they pack a tang. Pulpy peach and a delightful hop bitterness both of which linger long into the finish. Remarkably delicious and drinkable. Lives long past the novelty factor.

JDW Spring Fest 2010, Rochester. Pale soft malt with a touch of sweetness. Fragrant flowery hops. Peach & apricot & cream. very girly! Very pleasant.

madmitch76 (14711) - , Essex, ENGLAND - JUN 23, 2010
16th April 2010. Slightly hazy pale gold beer. Very moderate carbonation. Peachy nose! The peach carries over to the taste. Light semi dry palate, sweet peach and a little bitter orange underneath. Finishes fruity and dry. Unusual and pretty drinkable.

DJMonarch (9159) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2010
Cask Handpump at the Penny Black JDW, Northwich 16/04/2010 Fruity aroma. Golden coloured hoppy and fruity peach and citrus flavours with a hint of dryness in a crisp and bitter finish.

Cask, Last Plantagenet, Leicester. Hazy dull light gold with a thin head. Aromas are lots of peach syrup with floral notes. Fruity with some hay. Reminds me of Badger Golden Glory. Flavours are sweet and fruity with light toast malts. Hoppy and floral with a dry, slightly peppery finish. OK.
