Cask, Special;
This new beer has been brewed exclusively for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. It is a classic pale ale, using the choicest hops and premium malt to produce a fruity and well-balanced flavour, with a full-flavoured, lasting bitterness.

A pale with good nose and threatens a fruit explosion in its taste, but fails to deliver.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Pale gold with lasting white head. Served in beautiful condition the has a biscuity body, crisp, with a lemony, citrus light hop note. A lovely beer for the late evening sunshine. Mmmmmm

DruncanVeasey (8012) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 12, 2011
UPDATED: APR 15, 2011 The Felix, Nuneaton. Pale and draped. Bright, floral and tangerine aroma leaking through Gillette. Creamy, excellent malt; full bodied with slate, digestives, husk, almond and cashew. Hops come back late in a soft, tangerine and flowers finish. Low carbonation thick with condition. Very decent, but a little underwhelming. Juryís out on whether Leeds are any good or not, but Iím up there next week and intend to get to the bottom of it...

DanielBrown (4381) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2011
Hand pulled at the Figure of Eight, Birmingham. Bright yellow colourrrr. First impressions donít always count, because I wrongly thought that this was a boring, salty cracker, dry bitter. In fact, sip on sip, it became more balanced and interesting. My experience with the Brewdog Sorachi IPA meant I was able to appreciate the nuances of this interesting hop, which provided a peppery sweetness which evaporates like camel sweat. Elusive.

Leighton (18668) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 4, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Clear, light gold pour with a soft, white head. Crisp, sunkissed straw and light sugar on the nose. Pleasantly sweet flavor, some biscuits, faint citrus, lemongrass and straw. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Balanced finish, some hoppy stickiness, bit of crispy, sweet malts. Very drinkable beer.
