Cask, The Salmon, Leicester. Hazy yellow, orange with a white head. Aromas are wheat, cream and spiced oranges with tinned pineapple juice. Mellow lemon with yeast. Flavours are sweet oranges and lemons with nutty, woody notes and hints of banana. Grapefruit bitterness with citrus sourness. Some floral notes with a dry finish. Decent.

mingos (63) - Gdańsk, POLAND - OCT 31, 2015
Dark yellowish, opaque and muddy from the yeast sediments (maybe I shouldn’t have poured everything in?). Tall head that hisses and dissipates almost immediately, leaving almost no lacing. Aroma is citrusy, fruity, resembling instant lemonade; no clove, banana at the threshold of perception. Taste: dry, lemon + grapefruit. High, long lasting grapefruity bitterness. High carbonation, somewhat watery. This beer should be classified as an American Wheat. It’s got that American hop character one would expect from an American Wheat, but no Weizen characteristics whatsoever (no clove phenols, hardly any banana esters). With rather unappetising looks and questionable drinkability, this beer should be should be steered clear from. Drink only if you’re after a thirst quenching American Weizen or perhaps White IPA.

Cask at The Earl Grey Inn, Leek. A hazy golden colour with a medium white head. Aroma of lemon, some clove, wheat, some cereal and peppery hops. Taste of lemon, some yeast, clove, wheat, resin and peppery hops. Light bodied and a soft carbonation. A peppery hop bitterness in the finish. A decent cask wheat beer, peppery and great wheat flavours. Enjoyable.

Cloudy orangey beer with a thin head. Complex scent of orange, citrus and something spicy too. Taste is basically the same. It’s the spice which lingers in the aftertaste.
