This powerful, yet easy-drinking, golden brew is developed with a combination of old and new world hops, resulting in a beer with fragrant hop aromas, a smooth, balanced, malty character and a lingering hop bitterness in the finish. Named after Wojtek, pronounced

Crosse Keys Spoons. Hazy gold beer. Residual white head. Smooth palate, semi dry. Fairly low carbonation. Sweetish hops. Peach, tangerine, tropical fruits, grapefruit, even a little Sorachi Ace lemon flavour. A really nice medley! Finishes semi dry. Lip smacking hops. With some condition this would have been an easy 4+

On cask at Wetherspoon Stansted. Great beer, tastes like a salad of hops. Aromas of honey, caramel, pine, and orange. Taste is sweet and bitter, with a long lingering finish. Palate is silky, and medium bodied. Cloudy yellow, with a thin head.

Cask conditioned Handpump Moon On The Square Northampton. A golden beer with a white bubbly head. Hints of peach in the aroma which struggles thorugh the cold. Decent citrus fruits in the mouth with a nice body. Good hops. The malts give good backbone. This could be a cracker but it’s just too cold on this occasion.

Have had two of these. One at Thomas Sheraton Stockton which was superb almost Marble Dobber standard. One at Boston Wetherspoons which was less so but still good, hence an average of the two ratings above.

UPDATED: OCT 10, 2012 Cask at the Greyhound (JDW), Maidenhead. Golden amber with a thin white head; fruity aroma; rich tropical fruit flavour with some chewy malts; then a long, building, bitterness leaving a sweet digestive biscuit finish. Deceptively easy to drink.(7/4/7/4/15=3.7, 10/21/2011)

50cl bottle from the Sainsbury’s Beer Hunt range at 5.5% ABV. Amber with a billowing white head that slowly settles; rich malty aroma with some grassy hops; thick in the mouth with an almost meaty flavour and perhaps some tropical fruit;; and a dry biscuity finish with a slight zing. (6/4/7/3/13=3.3, 10/10/2012)
