COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
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.

downender (5912) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - NOV 30, 2008
Cask-conditioned at the Bag ONails, Bristol 29/11/08. Aroma of floral hops with a touch of citrus fruit. Sweet, apricot and lemon flavours with a hint of spiciness and short, dry finish. Ok.

Orange and clementine aroma, floral US hops carry into the flavour. Full hops but a little quick finish.

caesar (4715) - Bunnik/Utrecht, NETHERLANDS - AUG 13, 2008
Tap @ Brew wharf. Clear golden color, short white head. Aroma of citrus, lemon, some hop. Sweet sour lemon taste, decent bitter finish. On the brink of dishwashing water, but the hops keep it on the good side.

doubelknv3 (939) - Illinois, USA - JUN 24, 2008
Tasting notes from 2004 Banbury beer festival. Golden, cloudy, with lasting white head. Citrus, floral, and grass aroma. Citrus, earthy, and hop bitter finish. The wheat was very mild.

DruncanVeasey (6950) - NUNEATON, Top 24, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2008
Cask, The Tap, Peterborough. Thin, still, pale and haloed with white. Loads of grapefruity tang, grainy malt, and similar single hop zest to the Crouch Vale. Citrussy snout with a wring of dishcloth. Lemony, fresh, leafy and all that. A bit tiring.

Rastacouere (6107) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - NOV 23, 2007
Hazy greenish to golden pale yellow. Rocky white 1cm head. Flowery, grainy, one-dimensional ale that assumes it nicely and screams of brewing skills through its tremendous freshness and nicely growing dryness, slowly overtaking the graininess and leading you into drinkability wonderland. The allusions keep showing up in mouth, but you may be imagining them just because you enjoy the moment… grainy, lemony, leafy, milky… Medium body feels cracker like, gently effervescent. Beautiful freshness.

Christian (10779) - Odense, DENMARK - OCT 30, 2007
Pale yellow beer with a small but lasting white head. Perfumed aroma with flowers and lime. Medium sweet with a lemon hoppy finish. Easy drinker.

fonefan (33333) - VestJylland, DENMARK - SEP 11, 2007
Cask (handpump) @ GBBF 2007, London. Clear light yellow color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate hoppy, pine, heather, spruce. Flavor is light to moderate sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

sm89walt (1716) - Northern Beaches, Sydney, AUSTRALIA - SEP 8, 2007
UPDATED: SEP 9, 2007 Cloudy, pale yellow beer supports a fine white head. Subtle yet pleasant citric aroma. Satisfyingly smooth, long bitter taste that remains and finishes nicely. A refreshing and dry wheat beer.
