COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Status uncertain.
NOTE: There is no mention of Nethergate on the pump clip. Apparently the name of this beer is intended to be Orange Wheat but since there is no way of actually knowing that from the pump clip it is not included in the database under that name.

Leighton (10767) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 30, 2010
Cask at Wenlock Arms. Pours a clear, glowing orange-red with pretty much no head. Malt and fruit aroma with orange peel. Fairly sweet, with honey, caramel and citrus malts, followed by some faint earthy bitterness. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes sweet with definite orange flavor in the aftertaste. Not bad, but tastes nothing like a wheat beer.

Svesse (6065) - Hässelby, SWEDEN - SEP 19, 2010
(Cask at Wenlock Arms, London, 6 Aug 2010. "Nethergate Orange Wheat" according to the board) Golden amber colour with frothy, white head. Fruity nose with orange and apricots. Fruity taste with notes of orange, apricots, mashed apples and a rather mild wheat character. Light body, fairly sweet, with low bitterness. Decent.

harrisoni (13591) - Ashford, Kent, ENGLAND - SEP 17, 2010
Cask handpull at The Harp, Chandos Place. Gold, lasting beige head. Diacetyl aroma. Good condition. Some orange fruit on swallow and then more butter. Some cereal on the finish, some hop. Lower score due to diacetyl

Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford, where the pumpclip DID identify the brewer! Gold with a small white head. Faint sweet aroma. Some sour wheatiness, though I wouldn’t have recognised it as such. Slight bitterness. Decent enough.

Cask (handpump) at the Maypole, Cambridge on 29 July 2010. Don’t know what this is all about. Orange pumpclip. One word on it – Wheat. Plus the ABV. No mention of Nethergate at all. Fortunately the landlord was more than happy to go down to the cellar to check the cask for the brewery. Clear. Gold. Not a lot of wheat character. Clean. Alright but a bit dull. I may have been put off a bit by the stupid pump clip. Note to brewery – the primary purpose of a pump clip is to provide information about the beer, such as who brews it. If it had not been for a very obliging landlord I would have been really struggling to identify this one.
