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

fiulijn (18780) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 23, 2007
Cask at Bishop’s Arms, Malmö
Hazy golden color. Simple but pleasant ale, with traces of sweet cookies, and a good hopping. The final is quite bitter, and with even more cookie touch.

Oakes (15490) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAR 17, 2014
This is actually the Joker IPA, on cask in Glasgow. Yellow-tan. A fairly clean, basic melony-fruity hop nose. Fruity taste, lots of clean pale malts. Basic APA, good sessionable stuff.

leaparsons (9779) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - AUG 20, 2004
Worcester Fest. Hazy orange/gold with a small white head. Aromas are sour oranges and yeast. Flavours are oranges with spices. Grain and...at this point I got tired of this type of beer. Going for the Scottish beers at this festival has left me all golden-aled out. The end.
