Half-pint, cask, 5% abv., at The Blackfriar Pub. Amber coloured body. Faint bubbly head, some lacing. Smell of leafy hops and dough-like malts. Well blended malt-fruity taste. Clean and nice bitter round off. Pleasant (London, 06.11.2012).

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask @ The Winstor Castle, London. Almost clear, golden body with a nice white head. Light malty aroma with a fine citric fruitiness. Flavor is soft malt with smooth citric fruit and decent bitterness. Very refreshing. Medium body, nice bitter aftertaste. Nothing really extraordinary going on here, but a solid dose of a well-brewed beer. Sometimes that’s what it takes.

3.4 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask, handpump The Chequers, Oxford 14.05.12 Light amber with a white head, good clarity. Little bit of a sicky smell on the nose. Good tasting beer the hops and the wheat combine rather well, however like mine it is just a tad thin at times. Pithy in mouth with a citrussy rub around the roof of the mouth.

3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap @ the Haymarket. Pours golden with some haze. Nose is citrus mostly with not much of telltale wheat beer notes. The taste is more of the same - where is the banana, or toffee or nutmeg or whatever. Seems to be all grapefruit. The palate is light to medium body with a similar texture weight and a clean finish. Overall, a solid beer but they might have been better not to bother with the wheat.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Magpie, Nicholson’s, London. Pours clear, bright gold with a fine, foamy white head. Quite a bit of toasted straw in the nose with hints of citrus. Light to medium sweet flavor with ripe citrus, dirt, straw. Medium bodied with fine carbonation. Somewhat sticky finish with a dirty, lightly abrasive bitterness, mild toasty dough, some citrus rind. The bitter edge softens as I get used to the beer. Not bad overall.

Cask in Dog & Duck. Colour is clear orange amber, white foamy head. Nose is pithy orange and grapefruit citrous. Bit of Burton snatch in their. Like a citrus bitter rather than an American pale. Citrousy, crystal malt, bit of acidic bite. It’s solid but not great.
