Cask conditioned at The Turf Tavern, Oxford. Pale gold with white head. Light and thin beer with quite a strong vanilla flavour and a little bit of a sicky note. Tart and syrupy with strong alcohol character. Grapfruit in the finish. Reasonable.

Cask, Nottingham Fest 07. Golden with a small head. Aromas are sweet pear and apricot with some floral hops. Flavours are brown sugar and earthy pear with sweet citrus fruit. OK, but too sweet for me.

harrisoni (15068) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - OCT 21, 2007
Cask gravity at Nottingham BF 2007. Gold with thin white head. Incredibly smooth. Doesn’t taste of 6%. Some nice citrusy fruits, some hop sting on end. Like Summer Lightning used to be. Good condition fruits are like pink grapefruit, very fleshy. Excellent.

Fin (8331) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - SEP 10, 2007
Cask at Smithfest, Smithfield pub, Derby, 08-09-07 Poured a mid gold colour, with some floral notes on the aroma. Tasted honey sweet, but with floral flavour occasionally poking through, finishes bitter but sweetness is always present and sweeps over each mouthful. Whilst described as a wheat in the programme it didn’t instantly feel like one, but a good beer nonetheless.
