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.

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.

harrisoni (13580) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - APR 18, 2010
Cask handpull at Westgate, JDW, during the Mass Spoons Tasting. Gold, with a thin lasting white head. Well its certainly very peachy. Clearly not as sweet as the Polish Plum. But it does have some peach dessert like tendancies. Very fruity. And like a few bitters with fruit, the two donít make good bedfellows, you canít be fruit sweet and bitter at the same time. In fact, itís terrible. The peach finish is pretty good mind. Really interesting, but glad I only have a half. Still, better than the Black Chalice I had earlier, I mean I actually finished this one. Not great.

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.

leaparsons (8033) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2010
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.

DruncanVeasey (7134) - NUNEATON, Top 13, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2010
1) Cask, The Bankerís Draught, Sheffield. Pale gold with a slim collar. Bag of added juice/synthetic peachiness but bizarrely, it works; fine creamy malt balance, good rasp of hop, juicy tangerine mingled with the perfume. Quite a nasty synthetic/air freshener aroma, but overall, I liked it. 2) The Baron, Hinckley. None of the cascade coming over; biscuit malts and lemon jelly engulfed in airfreshener. Struggling with a third. This tastes like a Belgian fruit confection, but my Sheffield rate stands; Cascade competing pleasantly with peachiness, proving hops with a judicious sprinkle of juice can actually work.

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker Street íSporks.Bright yellow gold with a very good foamy white head. Awful astringent peach stuff. Some pleasant hops underneath with some mineral notes but mostly just harsh and peachy. Lingering aftertaste. Not for me at all. I must point out, peach flavoured things generally do not wit well with me.

downender (6210) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Imperial, Exeter 19/04/10. Hazy yellow in colour with a decent white head. Sweet, nectarine and orange juice aroma. Flavour had lots more peach, some elderflowers in the background and a short, bitter finish. Not unpleasant but, aside from the bitterness, this tasted like fruit juice.

DonMagi (5596) - bantervile, Bedfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2009
Cask in the market porter. Alround rating: Really peachy aroma, the elderflower comes through like lychee with a decent grassy bitterness. Its very well put together and very tasty.
