[Cask, at the Great British Beer Festival, 2015] - Black Hole Brewery Milky Way, 6%, bright yellow, mildly hazy, small frothy head. Pineapple and lactose, faint medical note on the nose. Full body, oily, next to no carbonation. Strong pineapple, lemon and lactose at the start, with a medical note. Stays pretty much the same into the rather weak finish, where the lactose is what remains of the flavour. Almost no noticeable aftertaste. Initially interesting take on a wheat beer (the milky way, indeed!) that peters out halfway through.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
True Anglo-Saxon wheat ale with snow white, stable head, creamy as is often the case in beers containing wheat; hazy golden colour. Aroma has some cooked vegetables and sweaty graininess, not too inviting actually, apart from light bready and grassy notes. Light in the mouth, subtle fruitiness, smooth but rather thin body, grainy, with a very mild grassy hoppiness in the finish. Lacks character.
