2.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
[Cask at the Hope Tap (JDW), Reading] Gold with a thick creamy head & a light fizz. The creamy lemon up front is pleasant enough; the dirty cardboardy bitterness that follows is less so. Not one of the better beers at this fest.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask at The Bear (JDW), Maidenhead. A clear straw pour with a thin, brilliant white, head that laced the glass nicely; fresh floral aroma; floral flavour to start with a floury body; then a pleasant, fruity, bitterness leading to a clean finish, with some dry wheaty biscuit to end - Jacob’s Cream Crackers come to mind. Overall a refreshing summer beer.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask. Slightly hazy gold with a white head and lacing. Sharply citric aroma with plenty more orange, grapefruit and apricot jam character on the tongue. Banana wheatiness lurks underneath. Lingering sticky mouthfeel. Wheat beers aren’t usually my thing but this is very nice.

The Baron of Hinckley, 16/04/13. Cream-topped bronze with a hint of murk. Ah, this is the wheat. Sweet soggy spiced biscuit front finishing with unexpected bitterness. Orange peel, yeast and pine nose. G+T stirred with a Twiglet. Nut husk afters. Heavy and disjointed. Tastes like the dregs of a weird yeasty BC bitter.

2.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden with a small head. It has a potent aroma with an aniseed edge, but not a huge amount of ’wheat’ character.
