COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask: Special - JDW Spring Festival, 2011
This new, American pale-ale-style beer has been brewed exclusively for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival. It is pale in colour, with bold, fruity, citrus aromas and a touch of malty sweetness in the flavour, developing into a bitterness which lingers in the mouth, right through to the clean, dry finish.

Leighton (10419) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAR 24, 2011
Cask at the Crosse Keys, JDW. Pours clear gold with a filmy head. Subtle malt aroma, hay and straw, light malts. Lightly sweet flavor, a bit of corn and hay, crispy malts, delicate straw and grass bitterness. Light bodied with fine carbonation. Balanced finish with some earthy bitterness in the throat, with a dynamic malt character. The first impression I get from this beer is nothing special but the complexity comes out a bit as I drink it. Quite nice.
