SarkyNorthener (3931) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JAN 8, 2016
Bottle from sainsbury, wednesfield. Golden amber beer with no head. Aroma of caramel and yeast. Taste is malts, some yeast, caramel and a hint of butter. Ok.

sarauckelman (377) - Durham, Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Clear light lemon brown with no head. Little aroma. You can definitely taste the German hops, and the wheat flavor is strong, but what makes this a very English bear is it has that British-ale mineral flavor.

uckelman (580) - Durham, ENGLAND - DEC 12, 2015
Pale golden, not much head. Aroma is grassy, with hints of banana. I don’t get the cloves they claim from the deScription. Refreshing. Not a bad wheat beer.

MichaelAwesome (6403) - Wanne-Eickel, North Rhine-Westphalia, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
A nice and easy drinkable blonde ale with some hay, bit of vanilla and grainy moments. Easily drinkable with a mild ending. Not bad.

McTapps (6421) - Reutlingen, GERMANY - AUG 21, 2014
Bottle from Sainsburys in Folkestone. Pours out in a deep golden-blonde colour with low airy head and medium body. Aroma of mild hops and straw. Taste of mild hops, straw, mild fruits, grains, bread and light flowers. Malty hints. Drinkable and nice, yet nothing special.

ManVsBeer (8312) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 10, 2014
Bottle. Probably the best aspect of this is the distinctive St Peter’s bottle, although it’s green not brown so the ale may not be as well kept in its container as it could be and I noticed a small skunky aroma. Golden with a thin head and light texture. Some grassy earthy notes apparent.

Mr_Pink_152 (3476) - Lincoln, Lincolnshire, ENGLAND - JAN 12, 2014
500ml bottle from Sainsburys. This is an ok wheat beer, bur I wouldn’t say its traditional for the style

postpunk (2) - - NOV 10, 2013 does not count
Hoppy aroma. Very strong alcohol smell. Taste is hoppy but not much else. Very average to say the least.

Hanoi (803) - Greater Manchester, ENGLAND - JUL 28, 2013
Nose is wheat, banana, slight marzipan. Taste wheat, marzipan, almonds. Amenable but far too sweet. Not a patch on a proper wheat beer.
