On cask at the Alexander Graham Bell for the Wetherspoons beer festival. Pours a golden colour with a decent white head. Aroma of yeast, caramel and grassy hops. Similar flavours with lingering grassy hops again. Moderate carbonation and an oily mouth-feel. Not bad.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at Blue Boar, Billericay. Brewed exclusively for J D Wetherspoon. Pours a pale amber with a tight creamy off-white head. Hints of malt, white grape, mango and pineapple in the aroma. Medium bodied but smooth and a little creamy over the tongue, a dry bitterness is countered by a subtle floral fruitiness with white grapejuice and mango flavours. The bitterness re-emerges in the aftertaste with those dry fruity flavours playing in the background. Overall quite a satisying beer, the floral fruitiness is delightful in itís delicate nature and a nice counter to the creamy bitterness. No one flavour dominates making a pleasant balance to a beer more usually found in bottled form.
