3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at The Magpie, Nicholsonís, 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.

21st January 2011
On tap at the Magpie, New Street. Light haze on this gold beer. Small cream head. Semi dry palate, smooth. Very tangy orange marmalade with traces of spice and bubblegum. Some sweeter orange before a long bitter finish. Not bad but the tangyness starts to grate after half a pint. Respectable though.

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 thatís what it takes.

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. Itís solid but not great.

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 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.
