(Cask at Draft House Tower Bridge, London, 24 Nov 2012) Hazy amber colour with creamy, off-white head. Malty, fruit nose with notes of apricots, citrus and bread. Malty, fruity taste with apricots, banana, white bread, a touch of yeast and a mild bitterness. Medium body, with a certain sweetness. Hardly exciting, but quite drinkable.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Half, cask at Euston Tap. Faint white tophead. Copper-amber coloured body. Good lacing down the glass. Smell of oily, sweet hops. Semi-sweet fruity flavour supported by wheat and ripe banana. Oily palate. Alright, however a rather special version of a wheat beer (London, 27.11.2012).
