Piercing bitterness in this ’brite’ English style wheat beer which mellows to reveal fruit overtones amidst a dry as a bone finish. This is a real thirst quencher.

In 2010, the bremaster can no longer get the wheat malt that was used so it is no longer a wheat beer.

tombyars (1604) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - FEB 16, 2012
Tasted this at the Troon Beer Festival in September 2003. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear golden amber in colour with a thin white head. Floral hops and sherbert lemon on the short nose. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a juicy fruit flavour of lemon peel and kiwi. Bitter hop resins impart a dry dusty aftertaste which combines well with the malt. Finish is increasingly dry and pithy with astringent notes full in the mouth. A below par session Wheat Ale.

Cask @ the Rake, London.
Pours hazy golden with a small, creamy, white film head. Aroma is malty, peach, wheat, pine and grass. Low carbonation, fine dryness and quite creamy mouthfeel. Flavour is pleasant, bitter, pine, grass, citrus. Zesty and feisty. Long, lingering delicious bitter finish. Nice.

weaselkenievil (1608) - Cheshire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2011
Cask at The Waters Green Tavern, Macclesfield. Slightly cloudy yellow gold with a thin white head. Aroma is clear citrus hops and some floral notes. Not very wheat-like but does what Oakham do, good honest English beer.

mjs (6534) - Helsinki, FINLAND - OCT 24, 2010
(Cask at Bree Louise, London) This beer was very citric. There were citricness both in aroma and in taste. Aroma had some yeast, too, which didn’t really fit in so well. Maltiness was quite low which wasn’t really a surprise. Aftertaste was long lasting and bitter. Nice.
