COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Special: Wetherspoon Spring 2013 Real Ale Festival
This bright, amber-coloured beer has an intense, hoppy aroma. It’s packed with hop flavours and a ruby-red grapefruit character, balanced by a deep, malty backbone, giving a long, lingering finish.

Cask at the Catherine Wheel (JDW), Henley. Amber with a thin white head; rich aroma with some butterscotch and some tropical fruit; thick, chewy, malt body with an immediate hit of dry resinous hops; building to a sustained dry woody finish with a pleasing underlying warmth. Best of the festival so far.

Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Amber with white head. Dry, malty beer quite toasty in character. Somewhat bitter and dry, a good thing, with a late perfumed slight hop note, fairly flowery. A reasonable beer, but not an IPA in my mind.
