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.

RichardGretton (4239) - Leicestershire, - JUL 12, 2013
Cask@The Criterion, Leicester. Golden beer with a good head. The aroma is fruity with some dryness, and the flavour is fruity with some sourness and bitterness. Overall a good beer for an English wheat beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

minutemat (1508) - Ford, Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 18, 2014
330ml bottle from Microbar, Manchester. Tastes like a very weak Belgian wit or saison.. light, verging on non-existent wheat taste, like a budget supermarket alcohol-free lager. Just took another sip trying to pick something out but everything seems to have disappeared ghost like into thin air. Extremely disappointing, especially considering this is my first from this brewery.

Bottle. thanks bigbro
Pours light hazy yellow with a small, frothy, white head. Aroma is sweet, light citrus, some wheat, banana, light grainy. Lowish carbonation, fine dry and light creamy mouthfeel. Flavour has grainy wheat, grassy, citrus. Lingering bitterness. Quite easily drinkable.

TBone (12544) - Pori, FINLAND - NOV 18, 2013
Clear golden color, small white head. Strong diacetylic butterscotch aroma. Medium-bodied. Crisp carbonation. Diacetyl is not so bad in the flavor, but it is there. Slightly wheaty, light hoppyness in the finish. Because of diacetyl, it is not easy to see if this has potential. My first one from By The Horns brewery.

Beese (1651) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2013
Bottle at the By The Horns brewery on 7 September. Poured a clear pale golden colour with a scummy white head. Aroma of white grapes, tart fruit and a slight soap note. Flavours of candy sugar, coconut and slight musk. Finishes with grains, wheat and boiled sweets.

Idiosynkrasie (3725) - Bielefeld, GERMANY - SEP 5, 2013
330ml bottle. Clear orangey golden colour with small to average, half-way lasting, minimally lacing, white head. Unpleasant clammy strawy aroma, some lemon. Taste is equally strawy, some lemon and lime, dry, soapy. Insipid, brackish.

joe19612 (1839) - camberley, Surrey, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2013
Bottle. Pours a dark gold colour with a thin white head, wheat aroma with some orange, the taste is bitter for a wheat beer, with a bitter dry finish.

hens (515) - Tallinn, Estonia, ESTONIA - MAY 7, 2013
0,33L Dried apple juice, fermented apple aroma. Rotten egg and milk comes little up. Forest mushrooms on middle. Finish reminds some fruity I.P.A tone. Musty finish is pushing other good tastes.

harrisoni (13591) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle from Oddbins London Bridge. Clear gold with very thin white head. Slightly buttery slightly estery aroma. More or less a standard golden ale in the mouth with a little bit of butter. It’s clean, but just a bit bland to be honest. Not great condition. Bit too clean.
