COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Seasonal - Summer.
Wadworth's summer cask beer is brewed with fragrant Saaz hops normally used for premium lager. These hops deliver a delicate aroma and bitterness making Summersault ideal for summer quaffing. Summersault is best served cool and dispensed with a sparkler.
Summersault is brewed with lightly kilned pale malt flavoured with Fuggles, Styrian Goldings and Saaz hops. These are added at both the start of the copper boil and as 'hop tea', a hot water infusion, as the copper casts. This achieves a highly fragrant brew with bitterness units of 27. Colour rating is 12.

Fin (7481) - Merton, Oxfordshire, England, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - AUG 13, 2007
Cask at The Nut Tree, Murcott, Oxon Dark golden beer with slight haziness and white head. This beer was sweet a bit tired and past its best to be fair still drinkable but will need to seek out again.

chriso (7390) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2006
UPDATED: DEC 17, 2006 Cask (handpump) at the Wig & Quill, Salisbury, Wiltshire. What Joeh said. Dry and thin. Needs more hops. Inoffensive but desperately short on flavour and character. Anodyne.

TheGrandMaster (2334) - Auckland, NEW ZEALAND - MAY 21, 2006
Pint pulled at The Volunteer on Baker Street (London), a light golden colour with a bubbly white head. A strong musty citrus aroma. A musty bitterness on the palate, fruity (passionfuit and oranges) and sweet - refreshing.

Joeh (2040) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - MAY 18, 2006
<!-- i -->Cask at the Belle Vue (nice name), High Wycombe - a strange little pub quite near to the station with a few real ales including guests (like this). Boring golden ale, lacking in the body and flavour to make it anything other than an attempt to convert tasteless lager drinkers into tasteless ale drinkers. There is perhaps a touch of fruit in there and a light hop finish but not much else at all.

Spiesy (2338) - Sydney, Greater London, AUSTRALIA - MAY 1, 2006
Cask Conditioned, at the Market Porter, Borough, London .
Pale golden colour, minimal white head. Seriously abrasive, pungent, sulphurous aroma. I like that Scottish touch as much as anyone but this thing was a deadset egg.

Ungstrup (29369) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - FEB 6, 2006
[Cask at GBBF 2005] A pale orange beer with a thin white head. The aroma is quite light with notes of sulphur and fruity esters. The flavor is sweet malty combined with an OK hop presence, but leading to a dry metallic end. The metallic note is a drawback.

Mads Langtved (2245) - Copenhagen K, DENMARK - NOV 25, 2005
Cask conditioned, GBBF 2005: Bitter and slightly harsh. This beer is absolutely not in harmony. Too sticky and somewhat fishy.
