DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - MAR 2, 2006
Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Very pale hazy gold. Slight head indeed. Another bland UK wheat - I can’t have had more than about 2 nice ones, grrrr. Flat, cardboard. Flavour is barely there, just a mildly uninteresting thin-nes. Tedious.

Cask Handpump at the Penny Black, Northwich (JDW) 22/02/2005 Clear golden coloured smooth on the palate and hoppy. Creamy slightly bitter dry lasting wheaty finish.

Sigmund (6774) - Tau, NORWAY - FEB 27, 2005
Cask conditioned at the Alexandra Hotel ("The Alex"), Derby. Pale golden colour, low to none head. Light bodied, thin mouthfeel. Some hops in the aroma and flavour, but not remarkable. This is an ale for the girls!

imdownthepub (13397) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - FEB 26, 2005
Cask Conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Pale gold with thin head. Lets get my Spoons moan out of the way first, too bloody cold!! This is a thinly flavoured low impact beer that wouldn’t be considered a session beer either. Stragely astringent with a doughy, yeasty background. Would never pick it as a Wheat, poor.

William IV, Leyton. White lillies and cat pee aroma. Thin, dry golden ale with corn flavour.

DeepBlack (386) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - JAN 17, 2005
Cask conditioned & on hand pump at The Babington in Derby. Billed as a "Wheat Beer" but I couldn’t reall see it, Shredded Wheat maybe :) A pale Golden colour, quite bready & dry-ish. Hints of country flavours in there
