Cask, Special for Wetherspoons;
Ingredients: Water from the brewery well; ’Maris Otter’ malt (crushed, not ground); Fuggles and Goldings hops, sampled by hand.
"Inspired by the words of William Blake’s Jerusalem, Wells Burning Gold is a tribute to all that is celebrated in English ale.
Our Master Brewer insists on the ’Holy’ brewing method - fermenting for a full 7 days."

Yachtsman Tavern, Woolston, Southampton. Fairly thin and uninteresting blonde ale. A little vinegary - possibly not fresh, but also could be the style. Not a beer I’d like to try again but it’s drinkable.
