Cask; Special - 2004.
A sparklingly clear wheat beer with a light, clean taste and a hint of spice. A contribution from every barrel sold will be donated to the 'Vulcan to the sky appeal' which strives to preserve the last air-worthy vulcan bomer (built just down the road from greengate brewery).

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - APR 5, 2004
One of the best beers Lees have made in a long time, vaguely in the style of a German Kristal. Produced to raise funds to restore a classic deltawing bomber built in Manchester this is a pale beer with the typical Lees nose but with added wheatiness. A strongly flavoured palate with wheat, grain, bitterness and “Lees-ness” before the complex and very moreish finish. Superb and different, very good for a British wheat beer. (cask in Golden Pheasant, Plumley)
