Cask: Regular, and Bottle: Cold filtered.
A combination of Maris Otter pale malt and fine wheat malt, give this refreshing beer real zest. Add fresh tasting Yakima Galena and Cascade hops and what you get is a fantastic wheat beer that will hole any passing thirst.

Leighton (14326) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JUL 8, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Pours clear gold with a large, fluffy and white head. Biscuity malt aroma, burnt straw and zesty citrus hops in the aroma. Light sweet flavor, toasted biscuit, slight cereal malts, pretty strong bitterness of grass and hay. Light bodied with average carbonation. Raw and grassy hop finish, slight lemon, bit of burnt grains. Not bad.

Shakesbeere (217) - Oxford, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - JUN 17, 2011
Pint from Cask at Far from the Madding Crowd in Oxford. Pours a hazy orange-brown. Not very aromatic -- smells a bit of hop and malt. Tastes is a mix of bitter hops (grassy and lemony) and malt toffee. Doesn’t taste bad, but isn’t especially clean. Bitterness slightly overpowers the malt character. Overall, not terribly interesting.

prawlie (1284) - Berkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2011
500 mL bottle poured into a festival pint glass. Orangey brown with an uneven head. Smells hoppy, slightly malty and sweet - smells more like an alcopop. Its alright, doesn’t taste like wheat beers I’m used to! Its smooth and kind of interesting, but ultimately a little unsatisfying in the grand scheme of things.

dynamiteninja (1680) - Norfolk, ENGLAND - MAY 2, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 3, 2011 Bottle. Pretty sure it was pasteurised. The label makes no mention of it being bottle conditioned either. Thin white head which doesn’t last long, sparkling amber body. Aroma is not offensive, but it’s not great either. Grassy, lemony hops. That’s it. Nice astringency. Longish bitter finish. Too acidic. Not my cup of tea at all really. 5 3 7 3 10 Cask. The Last Drop Inn, York. Thin white head. Gold body. Lemony, orangey, peppery, spiciness, fruity, wheaty. Bitter. Bitter finish. Creamy mouthfeel. 6 3 7 3 12

niquillis (1835) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - APR 20, 2011
UPDATED: MAY 6, 2015 500ml bottle from Tesco, Longton, Staffs. Slightly cloudy look with a decent head. High concentration of citrus flavours, very drinkable for a light summer ale although I do prefer more depth of flavour.-----5/5/15. On cask at Greyhound, Penkhull

Gary (1664) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 2, 2011
(bottled) poured into pils glass 1. cause Golden ales look cooler in Pils glasses and 2) .... i dunno. A nice dense foamy creamy head , above amber’esqu good looks. nose is skunky because of the clear glass bottle; some sweet malt and fruity hop zest. Tastes sweet uprfont , some toffee malt and lemon hop notes. Any wheat is subdued here.

Cask, The Queen’s Head, Chelmsford. Very strong yeasty aroma, some banana in the malt, maybe a hint of toffee, creamy, oily, pinet, eldeflower, good bitterness, good balance, get past the massive yeast and you get a fine session ale. Interesting and good.
