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.

chriso (7347) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2004
This isn’t really a German style wheat beer - more like a golden ale or an American Wheat (not hat I’ve actually tried too many of those). The wheat is not very noticeable, but it is a pleasantly crisp and fresh, quite hoppy beer with a significant amount of sharp bitterness on the finish. As Gazza says, very refreshing, if a little one dimensioanl. Cask (gravity dispense) at Bedford Beer Festival 2004.

Gazza (726) - Worcester, Worcestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2004
Very pale, very dry. The nose gives little away, but the flavour is bitter and astringent to the point of tongue-cleansing. Lemony hops come forwards to mellow the rasping bitterness and a little sweet graininess. A little too dry for me, and you’d probably not guess it’s a wheat beer, but just the job on a hot day! (cask in the Bell, Worcester)

CampbellWilson (533) - SCOTLAND - OCT 24, 2004
Cask at Bon Accord Glasgow. Surprised to find this described as a ’German Hefeweizen’ Only slightly cloudy, easy drinking, fruity aroma but main characteristic is long dry refreshing hoppy finish. Tastes like a good dry light bitter.

BeerLimey (2154) - California, USA - OCT 16, 2004
Cask: Whitish clouded appearance, good head formation. Apple fruity aroma. Mildly fruity flavor, soft and mellow with a fairly bitter citric finish for the style.

haddonsman (1234) - Derby, Derbyshire, ENGLAND - SEP 1, 2004
UPDATED: SEP 4, 2004 Re-rate, cask at Smithfield, Derby. Far fruitier than before, still fairly tart but a refreshing, balanced brew this time. Original rating, 2.2 Cask at Wheel Inn, Holbrook. Goldie looking, massivley hopped, pulls your lips back over your head, a bit too frantic for me.

tipsytoad (85) - JERSEY - JUL 28, 2004
cask, old moot hall inn, nottingham. a light wheat beer which has excessive bitterness and can be very tangy and acidy. seems to improve with age as it becomes slightly more mellowed and rounded.

JonMoore (1851) - Loughborough, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - JUL 26, 2004
Draught at the Swan in the Rushes, Loughborough. Very light colored and a thin white head. Floral aroma of fresh hops. Dry malty flavour with bitter hops. Long hoppy aftertaste. Enjoyed it.

This is a very bitter brew. A little too much - goes metallic and unpleasant. A rather dry palate combined with somewhat fruity in the aftertaste.
