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.

3.7 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
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.
