COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Bottled; Regular. Also available occasionally in cask.

Style: Pale Wheat Bottle abv: 4.7%
Available: 330ml bottles, and the occasional 9 gallon cask on request

A stylish and indulgent contemporary creation. A wealth of ideas and techniques have been poured into the making of beer. It has influences from traditional and new world brewing, with a nicely balanced rich body cut with notions of citrus and a development of spice. A more-ish beer full of character and zest. This is the Horns respectfully doffing our caps, to both the classic European and New World brewing techniques.

NOTE: Shortly to be replaced by a new version at 4.0% and with a very different recipe. Please do NOT entere ratings for that beer here - add as a new beer instead.

Leighton (9833) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 29, 2013
Bottle at home in London with Lyoli - picked up this bottle at Oddbins London Bridge. Pours perfectly clear, rich honey-gold with a slight, creamy white head. Aroma holds buttery biscuits and slight caramel, some doughy bread. Medium sweet flavor, lightly syrupy, some caramel, buttered biscuits, some hay, hints of toasted straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Sweet malty finish, lightly toasted bread, still some dough, a bit more caramel. In it’s sugary simplicity it is enjoyable, but it’s not a great beer.

Bottle 0.33l at home via alesbymail. Colour is hazy orange with small white head. Aromas and flavours. Wheat, spices, fruits and some hints of yeast. Quite nice.

Osprey87 (1158) - London via, WALES - MAR 15, 2013
Nov 2012 - unexpected flavour - sour, medicinal, enduring chemical flavour - antiseptic?, bit of lemon and spice. I’ve never had a wheat beer that tastes like this before. Not my cup of tea.

Beersiveknown (2473) - NORTHERN IRELAND - FEB 7, 2013
Bottle at home from ales by mail
Quite custardy with nutmeg notes. Burnished gold, light carbonation, medium body. Unpleasant diacetyl butterscotch jars with bitter hops leaving mouth wanting. Flinty finish.

Finn (3759) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JAN 3, 2013
Southampton Arms, Gospel Oak 6 Nov 12. Aprikosfarget. Uklar. Nesten ikke skum. Svakt syrlig aroma. Smaken er modne plommer. Litt syrlig ettersmak. Under pari.

Rune (7346) - Tromsø, NORWAY - DEC 3, 2012
Half-pint, cask, shared with Finn at Southampton Arms. A headless, cloudy orange body coloured beer. Tart-sweet aroma. Taste of oranges, mid-sweet, and subdued yeasty fruitiness. A not-too-sweet weizen (London, 06.11.2012).

BeerCast_Rich (1840) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - OCT 26, 2012
[330ml bottle, Drinkmonger, Edinburgh] Opaque peach-coloured pour, thin rim of bubbles around the glass. Aroma is tart yeast, wheat and sherbet lemon. Yeasty, herbal, lemon rind on the flavour, before the finish verges on the acrid. Not sure the yeastyness is helping, but there’s a good beer in there somewhere [26102012]

Cask conditioned handpump Southampton Arms London 08/09/12. A very hazy yellow coloured beer with a whitish head and lacing. A zesty wheaty aroma and taste. A decent body. Good flavours in this. Tasty and surpassed my expectations.
