Cask: Special - JDW Autumn 2010 Festival
This new beer has been brewed exclusively for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival, with the help of Kay Masson, manager of The Job Bulman, in Gosforth, who helped to both formulate the recipe and brew the beer. It is a full-flavoured, golden ale with a light, floral aroma, easy-drinking character and slightly sweet aftertaste.

SilkTork (5541) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - MAR 22, 2011
JDW Fest Autumn 2010. Not sour, but an interesting lactic tang throughout. A pleasant beer but lacking in all departments. Not quite sure what the aim was but mostly fails. Drinkable.
