Beese (2560) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 30, 2013
Cask at the Milton Keynes Beer Festival 2013. Poured a cloudy, light yellow colour with a medium, tight white head. Aroma is sharp citrus, yeasty esters and sherbet. Sweet citrus flavours with lemon boiled sweets and hay. Finishes with some wheat, candy sugar and pear drops. Odd beer... not bad, but tasted like the penny sweet counter...

allmyvinyl (7017) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - SEP 19, 2013
Cask at Weatherspoons Birmingham. Pours hazy yellow with a thin white head. Aromas of bready malt, hay, grass and soap. Taste is good, more bread notes, and very dry finish. Too much soapy goldings by the end though. Should’ve just got a half.

Leighton (14720) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2013
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW - London. Pours clear gold with a slight, creamy white head. Sugary, bready nose. Medium sweet flavor, lots of doughy white bread, some honey, cereal grains. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Lightly sticky sweet finish, sugary white bread, dough. Very simple.

SarkyNorthener (3167) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - FEB 25, 2013
Cask@moonunderwater, wolverhampton. Dull gold colour with small head. Little citrus aroma. Taste is the best part. Citrus, hops, dry and sweet. A touch floral as well. Didn’t notice the wheat. A decent enough beer.

Tried it at the Chesterfield beer festival. Forgot the other hundred beers and spent the night drinking this one. Is it possible to find a recipe for this since I brew my own beer.

Cask at JDW Charlie Hall; clear brown pours Frothy white head moderate bitter with a dull hop adequate but nothing exciting here.

chriso (7513) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 16, 2012
Cask (handpump) at the Joseph Else (JD Wetherspoon), Nottingham on 13 July 2012. Mid gold. Lively condition. Some estery fruits in the aroma. Slightly fat mouthfeel but doesn’t taste 6.0% at all. Pleasant drinking but rather low impact for a strong beer. Didn’t realize, or pick up, that it’s a wheat beer.

Cask at a JDW, Blackheath. Pours gold with a small head. Aroma is sticky, piney hops. Taste has a hoppy, sticky start. Sweet hoppy medium bitter finish.

maeib (8749) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - APR 15, 2011
Cask conditioned handpump Wig & Pen Northampton. A light golden beer with a white head. Suprisingly little in the aroma, but otherwise a fairly full bodied summery beer. Light citrus but pretty restrained flavours. Refreshing but disappointing.
