Session Ale
Adam Avery and Steve Breezley have travelled to Adnams Brewery, in Suffolk, which is hosting an international brewer for us for the first time, to collaborate in brewing this beer specially for this Wetherspoon real ale festival. Although brewed at a session-beer strength, this beer is hopped like a true IPA, including dry-hopping in the cask, creating a pine-like and citrus aroma and a full on hop character throughout the flavour and finish.
Hops used: Amarillo, Centennial, Simcoe

Cask, The Francis Newton, Sheffield, UK. Ale festival 2012. Golden, thin head. Amazing floral aroma, much more than expected some stone fruit and rose. Balanced, more floral hops, slight metallic finish. Best of the festival so far.

For a 3.5% beer this is quite astonishing. Packed with American citrus hop aromas which carry through to make a clean, sharp, refreshing taste. Only criticism that could be levelled is in the slight sour note and thin palate but what do you expect for 3.5%? Could drink this all day. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

[email protected], wolverhampton. Medium to dark amber,medium head good lacing. Medium strength grapefruit aroma. Taste is of grapefruit blended with a good level of bitterness. Very smooth on the palate. This is an excellent beer. A little more hops and abv could make it phenominal.

At long last a Beer I can drink all night that actually tastes of beer. Thank you Adnams. I understand this is exclusive to Wetherspoons, shame!

Poured a clear reddish brown. Aroma of caramel malt. A bit boring, just a standard weak bitter really.

stravale (3145) - Co. Westmeath, IRELAND - OCT 28, 2012
Cask @ JDW Inverness and the Standing Order Edinburgh 261012
Orange amber, clear, large dense white head with good lacing
Aroma - Big hoppy nose for the abv, citrus hops, grapefruit, nice piney hops
Taste - Bitter citrus piney hops, light pale malt background, piney grapefruit, nice bitterness, malt hop balance just right here
Palate - soft carb, light body bit of little oily. Finish - lingering bitter piney hops, citrus and a touch of grassy hop, not over bitter
Overall - This was really good - no surprise it was made at Adnams,..I had to have more this that evening before its gone

leaparsons (10766) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 28, 2012
Cask, Lord Keeper of the Great Seal, Oadby. Amber with a fluffy cream foam. Aromas are nutty and spicy with white grape and melon. Toasted malts with apricot jam and lemon. Flavours are biscuit malts with nutty notes and low, woody pine. Grapefruit and lemon bitterness with floral aspects. Background grape and melon with a peppery palate. Very tasty for its modest strength.

Cask at JDW Briar Rose part Autumn 2012 beer fest; pour clear amber really taste the American hops. Piney lemon fresh taste definitely up there with Jarl as a hoppy sessionable low ABV beer.

Scopey (15753) - Croydon, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 26, 2012
Cask at Archibald Simpson’s. It pours clear amber, with a medium off-white head. The nose is pine, earth, zesty citrus fruit and malt backbone. The taste is fresh pine, resinous hops, bitter citrus, earth, leather and subtle spice, with an assertive bitter finish. Med body and soft carbonation. A flavoursome and well-balanced session ale. Great stuff.
