COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Note: Sometimes listed as Nice Weather 4 Ducks - see the pump clip to understand.
A copper coloured, fruity, summer ale packed full of flavour. Blackberry, strawberry and floral rose notes in perfect balance with just the right amount of malt character. A refreshing summer thirst quencher, it’s fruit salad in a glass.

imdownthepub (10210) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, - SEP 1, 2011
Cask conditioned at The Flowerpots, Derby. Copper with white head. Perfumed, flowery, fruity beer, a bit of a struggle to be honest. Heavy blossomy fruit notes just dominate throughout.
