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.

tommann (3266) - Dudley, West Midlands, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2011
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.

DruncanVeasey (7999) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - SEP 3, 2010
Cask handpull, Spoons, Market Harborough. Creamy white resolving into straw; fine lace rim and specks. Heady orange flesh and marmalade aroma. Background, incidental alcohol swamped with ripe orange, honey and vanilla; lingering corn and cashew afters. Fresh, bittersweet and treacherous stuff made savoury by that fleshy orange hop. Could do a few pints of this.

Cask@GBBF2010. Golden colour with small white head. Aroma is fruits, earth, some mild grainyness. Flavour is quite much the same, but also has some slight doughy notes.

downender (7795) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 7, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Hillgrove Porter Stores, Bristol 7/08/10. Deep gold in colour with a slight, white head. As mentioned below, very easy drinking for the ABV, with some sweet, citrus notes and decent, dry finish. Strangely easy drinking.

renffisch (890) - london, Greater London, ENGLAND - AUG 3, 2010
Nip at GBBF 2010. Light golden colour. Small big bubbled head, no lace. Strange mix of artificial sweeteners and light citrus flavors. Short finish. Odd but not bad.

sm89walt (1934) - Sydney, AUSTRALIA - FEB 13, 2010
Cask - White Cliffs Festival 2010, Dover. A clear, golden yellow beer with a fine, disappearing white head. A touch of sulphur on the nose with bittersweet, earthy hops. A hint of the wheat on the tongue with good citrus notes and a honey sweetness. Crisp and medium in body with a mild dryness.
