Williams "Joker" is our wildcard, this is a copper coloured ale, medium bodied and a pleasant mix of spice and fruit, which stretches the palate to a smile!

Somewhat opaque light orange, small fading foam head. Bitter aroma, some spice - pepper. Nice bitter hoppy taste, and aftertaste. (Moscow 201409)

imdownthepub (13234) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - APR 17, 2009
Bottled 500ml, present. Orange gold with white head. Quite a thin bodied beer, malty and a little grainy, then with a gentle oranget, citrusy hop. It’s fairly pleasant but lacking any oomph to get the taste buds excited.

Doppelganger (1388) - Dry County, Arkansas, USA - SEP 13, 2008
Golden orange pour, good sticky white head. Some interesting bits floating in the glass. Pasteurizing is a shame, but at least its not flitered as well. Bread dough and sweaty tangerine aroma with a pinch of cinnamon, fairly low volume, but pleasant. Oily citrus bitterness, candy-coating the mouth with hops. Restrained malt sweetness, leaning toward full body and with a softness emphasized by restrained carbonation levels. Williams Bros beers in the bottle overall seem rather variable, but the last couple I’ve tried have been very decent.

wyzzywyz22 (2108) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 25, 2008
Bottle, Beer Ritz, Leeds. Poured a clear darkish golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma had some berry fruit and malt traces. Flavour was sweetish citrus with gentle hop, finishing slightly dry and bitter. Pleasant thirst slaker, but nothing worth lingering over too long.

chimplechamp (601) - Oslo, NORWAY - AUG 14, 2008
pours gold, lots of lacing, big head, clear, taste is very light, sessionable, i just drank a paradox so that be why this joker is lackluster.

Skinnyviking (8694) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - AUG 14, 2008
Bottle. High fluffy and lasting white head. Clear amber body. Weak barley malt aroma with caramel notes. Mild fruity caramel honey flavor with a pleasant yet mild hoppyness. Low carbonation. Long mild bitter aftertaste.

iammarc (385) - Inverness, SCOTLAND - JUL 29, 2008
I’m going to give this the benefit of the doubt, because I think I had ruined my tastebuds with drinking too much of the ’good stuff’ all night. I can remember it being quite a golden appearance and a golden taste - if you know what I’m saying (?)...

Bragesnak (5394) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 13, 2008
Aarhus, DK. Bottled, 230508. Label says 5.0% Orange with a lasting white head. Mouthfilling palate and balanced carbonation. Aroma of oranges and malt. Flavor of sweet malt and wheat. Hints of floral hops and a nice bitterness.
