COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A refreshing alternative to traditional premium ales and lagers, Ruddles Wheat is a contemporary, clear English wheat beer. Clean, crisp and thirst quenching. Pale malt is combined with Goldings hops to provide the distinctive qualities of this strong, delicious beer. Unlike many of the cloudy Continental wheat beers on the market, Ruddles Wheat is crystal clear. With a golden yellow colour that shines superbly in the glass, this beer has a very appealing wheaty aroma.

PetetheMeat (621) - Hove, DENMARK - SEP 15, 2007
Bottled: Golden. Clear. Small, lasting head. Creamy. Bread combined with some sweet notes in the aroma. Lemon too. Mild flavour with vague traces of wheat. It has an odd sweet note too which resembles fresh apple juice. Not a wheat bear judged by german og belgian standards. Quite drinkable nonetheless. Draught: A very comfortable palate, smooth. Better.

Papsoe (25085) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - DEC 10, 2005
(Bottle 50 cl) Deep golden - bordering amber - with a small, creamy and dense head. Very soft and slightly sweet with a low carbonation. Marked, smooth wheaty touch, but nowhere similar to neither German nor Belgian wheats. Reminds me more of a pleasant, caramelish English strong ale. Very quaffable. 161101

imdownthepub (10460) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 6, 2003
Bottled. Clear yellow beer without much head. It hasn't the sharp cereal taste of a German wheat but as a drink in its own right its ok, lemon, tang, crisp, quite a thirst quencher. No big faults, no great pluses, a moderate drink.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - AUG 26, 2002
Funny bottle. Nice wide-opening. Improves the easy-drinking-proporties of the bottle. I would’nt call this a wheat beer. It is absolutely not a REAL wheat beer. The appearance is quite nice. It looks very, very refreshing. BUT it is’nt. It is a bitter imitation of the great German wheats. I should have known it. Englishmen are not meant to brew wheat beers. Sorry folks, but that’s how it is. Stick to the IPA, EPA, ESB, HSB and what the fuck you else call it.

I hereby re-rate this beer lower than before. I still get nightmares about it... A wheat beer without the pleasant wheat characteristics. Not great - a (very) pale imitation.

Reasonable appearence for an ale (but it is suppose to be a wheat beer). For my money it tastes like a chemically enhanced ale, rather than a wheat beer.

Fine head and a nice amber color. Tastes of honey, bisquit and cherries.
