Cask: Special - Wetherspoon Beer festival, Spring 2012.
David Yarrington, from America’s Smuttynose Brewery, has travelled to Wadworth Brewery, in Wiltshire, to brew this beer especially for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival, taking its name from the way in which George W Bush pronounces ‘American’. This is a light mild, blending elements of Belgian, British and German brewing cultures, giving a malt profile which balances the sweet and bitter orange peel and citrus aromas, from the German hops – all superbly melded together by the British yeast used.

Spring 2012. JDW, Rochester. Pale amber. Served a little warm. Quite watery. Like a poor quality British Golden Ale. Not impressed.

Has roasted aromas, some notes of this in the flavour which is yeast dominant.

tombyars (1511) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - APR 24, 2012
Tasted this in the Crown Rivers, Heathrow Airport (JDW) in April 2012. Cask, handpump dispense. Pale golden amber in colour with a thin white head. Dusty hop flowers on the nose. Thin, slightly resiny mouthfeel and good lacing. Pale malt gives a sweet digestive biscuit note with sweet golden syrup. Hint of spices in the light bitter hop resins, giving a short prickle to the aftertaste. Finish is on the malty side with a light flavour of apricot skins. A decent session mild.

[Cask at the William Robert Loosley (JDW), High Wycombe] Golden-amber with a medium white head and a light sparkle. Digestive biscuits, flowers, a little summer fruit and some sherbert. Unusual but rather pleasant. Interestingly, everyone I was with seemed to like this one regardless of their normal beer preferences.

Hamilton Hall Spoons. Clear gold beer, tiny white head. Light dry palate. Mild fine carbonation. Sourish fruits, a mixture of orange and tropical fruits. Flowers! Not sure what’s going on here. Unusual. Not unpleasant but unusual. The Sapphire hops maybe?

fairwater (143) - Reading, Berkshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
Cask @ JDW. Pours light brown to dark amber. Bit of malty aroma. Sort of malty waft on the palate, maybe some faint candied fruits, no discernible hops. I?m always faintly disappointed by milds, the only exception here being that it?s more than faintly... Not unpleasant, just quite dull...

imdownthepub (11962) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 11, 2012
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Gold to amber with white head. Little aroma to speak of, there is a smokiness to the malt, reasonably drying, bready and a touch peachy fruity. Not really there though.
