Cask: Special - 2011 JDW Autumn Beer Festival.
Matt Cole, from Fat Head’s Brewery, has travelled to Shepherd Neame Brewery (Kent) to brew this beer especially for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. This golden-coloured beer is based on a British recipe, yet hopped with American varieties, resulting in a tropical fruit aroma which leads you to a slightly nutty, malty flavour and a pleasing citrus hop finish

On cask at the Counting House in Glasgow. Pours a golden colour with a lacy white head. Aroma of apples, yeast, barley and caramel. A similar caramel flavour with light barley and some treacle. Mild carbonation and very thin. Not my thing.
