Cask: Special - JDW Autumn Festival 2010
This new beer has been brewed exclusively for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. It is an extremely well-hopped golden-coloured brew, creating a beer which has an enticing floral aroma which leads to a clean, refreshing character and a lingering, pleasingly dry aftertaste.

berkshirejohn (6074) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 11, 2010
Cask at the Old Manor (JDW), Bracknell. At last something at this Spoonsfest to awaken the taste buds. Golden amber with a thin cream head; floral aroma with a hint of spice; sharp grapefruit flavour to start then becoming slightly sweeter; there’s a prolonged finish with a dry, deep, bitterness. Excellent.
