AshtonMcCobb (2609) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - MAY 21, 2011
50cl bottle. Pours a hazy yellow colour with lots of bubbles and a very generous head. The nose is of vanilla custard almost leading on to buttermilk. The taste is of more vanilla, rich cream and some other spice. The palate is big in structure, creamy in texture and quite refreshing on the end. Overall, a great example of how wheat beer should be made.
