3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London. Bright golden color with creamy head. The aroma is grainy with wood, vanilla and spices. Creamy and soft palate. Quite bitter flavor with wheaty, woody and fruity notes. Finishes fruity-bitter with peppery spiceness. Refreshing, but still very tasty. Very good balace between fruit, bitterness, wood and wheat.

2.8 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(Cask at White Horse, Parson’s Green, London 21 Apr 2006) Golden yellow colour, no head. Fruity nose dominated by citrus (mainly lemon) and some wheat. Fruity taste as well, with lots of lemon, starting a bit sweet but with a dry finish. Rather light body, but nice balance where the fruity hops tend to overshadow the malt and wheat. There’s something artificial over it however.

4.7 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Cask at Oakham Brewery Tap, Peterborough. This is almost as good as it gets. I have known a 9 of this disappear in a smallish pub in 6 hours. Wonderfully drinkable with all of the normal Oakhams bits (golden hoppy citrus zesty) but with a roundedness from the addition of malted wheat. Fabulous.
Re-rate Planet Thanet Beer Festival 2007. I had this 4 times, first and last beer of each day and it was faultless, the citrus aroma, the body that is fuller due to the addition of wheat and this grapefruit/tangerine finish that lasts and lasts.
