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.

mjs (4782) - Helsinki, FINLAND - JUL 22, 2013
(Cask at Pikkulintu, 20130722) The beer poured deep golden and clear. Its head was small, long lasting and white. Aroma had fruitiness, citricness and malts. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, grapefruit, malts, sweetness and bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter and lightly acrid. Aroma was very good but the taste, especially the aftertaste, was displeasing.
