Keg @ The Rake. Quite spicy is this, more so than i was expecting from what I remember (and I don’t remember much from that day), with cardamom & cloves coming through more than the yeast and wit flavours. It’s pleasant enough but the spices are a little off-putting for me.

Keg at the Rake. It pours cloudy golden-orange with a small white head. The nose is candy, wheat, bubblegum, orange, tangerine, clove and Irn Bru. The taste is bitter, grainy, hay, spice, wheat, orange peel, lemon and grapefruit with a dry, bitter finish. Medium body and fine, prickly carbonation. All comes together rather well. Solid wheat beer.

Tap at the Rake. Hazy golden with a firm white cap. Nose is coriander and mint, apricot and lemon zest. Taste is absolutely chock full of limey zest with huge lemon curd and cheesecake. Very marmaladey with plenty of spice. A solid drop for the style

2.3 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
Pours cloudy orange. No head which is disappointing on a wheat beer. Smell is like yoghurt then turns to cloves. Way over board. Flavour is between a dry white wine, a cider and a cloved hot whiskey. No bitterness. Not sure where hops are. Body is way to light for a wheat beer. A disappointing effort.

Prince of Wales Farnborough. Pours a cloudy yellow colour with a thin white head, some wheat and fruit in the aroma, taste was bitter at first, then the wheat comes through which leads to a dry bitter finish.

Gravity dispense at the Prince of Wales, Farnborough BF - 12/10/12.
Hazy yellow with a thin white head.
Nose comprises peach, apricot, soft fruit tones, candy sugars.
Tastes a little peachy, sugars, fruit, a little smoke.

I enjoyed this a slightly off kilter take on the style but it worked for me!

Cask @ Nags Head, Reading. Tasty wheat beer, fruity and smooth drinking. Slight, pleasant and in proportion bitterness (from someone who doesn’t like beer to be very bitter!). Bublegum and clove at the finish.

Half pint at Hobgoblin in Reading. Little head on a cloudy golden beer. Straw flavour, pretty good. Smells good, slightly spiced hoppy aroma. Strong hop after taste and dry.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Spicy wheat beer. Cloudy appearance, with a nice head that takes quite a while to settle. The mouthfeel is suprisingly bitter, and not a particularly nice suprise! Orange peel, tamarind flavors are also present. I like Otley beers very much, but this needs a little tweaking in my opinion.
