Sampled on my Cornish adventure from 26 - 28 January 2007 whilst visiting my friend and ratebeer fellow member Ruprecht - Mmm, quite nice this one. Unsurprisingly, this is blond in colour and wheaty! It also has a citrus palate - reminds me a bit of Summer Lightning, but not as good. It has a little bitter aftertaste, which smacks a bit of a homebrew. Not bad, not great.

Very nice indeed. Slighty sweet, slightly wheaty, slightly meaty. I was in my car today, on my way to tescos in Truro to buy a bottle of this very ale, when i drove past the Skinners Brewery itself?! How sppoky is that! Don’t like the sound of those yank hops though? Whatever next?

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
A golden orange coloured beer with a weak white head. A light citrus nose is followed by a sweet biscuity malt aroma. A dry citrus fruit flavour accompanied by the sweet cracker biscuit malty element from the aroma. The finish is dry with a hint of spice. (Cask - The Fox & Hounds, Heacham, Norfolk).

Not bad, for being a Wheat Ale. It had some interesting flavors in it, but defenitely not a Hefe Weizen.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled Cornish wheat beer; clear, golden, with a rocky white head. Some fruit and hops in the aroma with background sweetish malts. Taste is not too bad; a nicely drinkable, fruity, hoppy, citrusy and spicey blond beer. Medium bodied, lightly carbonated.
Not really a Xmas beer, but you have to be adaptable in this game!

2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Cask at County Hotel JDW Ashford. Well this won’t be worrying our continental cousins in terms of wheat beer. Blond citrus and hoppy with some lemon and some banana fruit with a dry hoppy finish but none of the other traits you would expect from a white beer. Inoffensive enough

2.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 9/20
Cask conditioned @ Giddy Bridge (JDW), Soton (27/07/05). Despite a recent refurbishment at this JDW they are up to their old trick of running cask lines through the lager chiller, personally I dont like my beers that cold even lagers,but anyway. Zesty hops, yeast and a light fruity bite. Fairly pleasant but would benefit from a cleaner more assertive profile.

3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Cask. Pale beer (only a slight hint of wheatness) with a light aroma and watery lighlty hopped flavour. Overall quite a plain beer.

Not a brilliant blonde - Astringent quality in the finish. Sharp and yeasty.
