Keg at The Cheshire Cheese, Fleet Street, London. Hazed, cloudy lemon with keged head. An unfortunate attempt at a Hefe Weizen, there are cloves and a sweet false banana flavour/perfume but it is fairly poor. Cloyng throughout with a mouthcoating spicy mush. Tis a shame and this was the first time Id managed to find this historic pub open, what a place, even on the Friday evening crush from the City Suits.

Tap. I much prefer the regular Ayinger (you know, the one from germany). This just tasted like a diluted version, soft clove and citrus, a little dull, but it is drinkable.

Tapped - the fizz is steady and insistent. Some like it, others dont. I dont. The toffee flavour is odd, but not nasty. I like a bit of toffee. I liked the toffee. There are other flavours, but they are a bit muddled. This is a drinkable product. Doesnt taste good quality. Same as all the other Sam Smiths stuff.

Draught in the Red Lion, Carnaby, London. Cloudy yellow with slim white head. Decent enough stab at a wheat beer. Some banana in the aroma, light bodied, hints of the usual hefeweizen flavours. Quite pleasant on a very hot evening in the capital.

Tasty, slightly peace and lemon flavored. Remember this one better in retrospect, from my pre-RateBeer days. Still pretty wonderful. Had this at Lyceum Tavern, London.

God, I dislike Sam Smiths intensely. They have a really old and traditional brewery but (notwithstanding their highly regarded, but in my view over-rated, bottled beers) make just one mediocre cask bitter and insist on filling great old pubs with pissy keg bitters and fizzy lagers. So here we are at the historic former Courage brewery (long since gone) tap in South London, at the end of the RB London pub crawl on a Joeh inspired quest to try every one of those depressing products. At least Ill get them all out of the way in one fell swoop. To be fair, the wheat beer is not the worst of the bunch. It looks OK and theres even a hint of estery banana, but the butterscotch is definitely not authentic and entirely unwelcome. Not good, but drinkable.

Cloudy lemon with white lasting head. Clove, light vanilla in aroma. Sweet vanilla, butterscotch and banana. Thin bodied, but ok to style. Alright weisse.

Kegt the "Worlds Funniest Pub", The Anchor Tap, Tower Bridge, London..
Odd attempt at a hefeweizen, this is substandard and has a distinct (unpleasent) buttery edge to it.
Sampled on the Ratebeer London Meetup & Pub Crawl, December 2004. With Silktork, Chris_o, & Kook.

Keg, Anchor Tap, Tower Bridge. Standard wheat beer appearance. Decent aroma. Flaccid mouthfeel and fading flavour. Its mostly decent enough, but just very very dull.
