Bottle from Waitrose, Windsor. This hazy straw coloured beer pours with a large foamy head. It has a zesty, slight spicy citrus flavour with hints of banana and clove on the warming finish.

Scopey (6180) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - DEC 20, 2013
Keg at BD Shepherd’s Bush. It pours clear golden yellow with a medium white head. The nose is doughy, cereal, grain and light fruitiness. The taste is smooth, clean, dough, lemon, toast, light floral and some decent bitterness. Medium body and moderate carbonation. Not a whole lot going on, but it is smooth, clean and pretty drinkable.

JohnRMurdoch (3171) - Glasgow, SCOTLAND - APR 12, 2012
UPDATED: APR 15, 2012 Keg @ Bruadar. Hazy golden amber colour, not much head. Mild fruity malt aroma. Fruity resin flavour. Quite smooth, sweet aftertaste. Not sure why this is a Hefeweizen. Somewhere between a blonde beer & English pale ale.

On keg at the Holyrood 9A. Pours a light golden colour with a fair white head. Aroma of strawberry, candy apple and caramel. Similar strawberry flavour again some caramel also. Mildly bitter with a chewy mouth-feel. OK, surprisingly fruity.

Bottle. A rating from an old notebook. A bottle bomb that coated the table in sticky beer. Straw coloured, thin white head. Sour aroma, likely infected. Tastes just like vinegar, a certain infection.

manuchampions (1235) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 4, 2011
33cl bottle courtesy of my Dad. Pours a fairly clear medium gold with an ample white head. Aroma is sweet fruit and crisp, clean hops. Taste follows suit with a little caramel malt in there as well. It’s very fresh and clean despite being very average. Nails the common English ale, would make a lovely summer patio beer, but just short of the mark for me.
