Cask. Originally a special for JD Wetherspoon Spring Festival 2010 but has reappeared since.
This unusual and distinctive beer has a sweet aroma of peaches and elderflower, perfectly balanced by a hoppy bitterness in both the flavour and finish.

Alphadelic (2237) - Portland, Oregon, USA - SEP 7, 2010
Light and still this golden summer ale has whipped egg white foam. The aroma is of beautiful bittersweet fresh peaches, they pack a tang. Pulpy peach and a delightful hop bitterness both of which linger long into the finish. Remarkably delicious and drinkable. Lives long past the novelty factor.

SilkTork (5738) - Southampton, United Kingdom, Hampshire, ENGLAND - JUL 24, 2010
JDW Spring Fest 2010, Rochester. Pale soft malt with a touch of sweetness. Fragrant flowery hops. Peach & apricot & cream. very girly! Very pleasant.

16th April 2010. Slightly hazy pale gold beer. Very moderate carbonation. Peachy nose! The peach carries over to the taste. Light semi dry palate, sweet peach and a little bitter orange underneath. Finishes fruity and dry. Unusual and pretty drinkable.

DJMonarch (9179) - Northwich, Cheshire, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2010
Cask Handpump at the Penny Black JDW, Northwich 16/04/2010 Fruity aroma. Golden coloured hoppy and fruity peach and citrus flavours with a hint of dryness in a crisp and bitter finish.

leaparsons (10551) - Wigston, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - APR 27, 2010
Cask, Last Plantagenet, Leicester. Hazy dull light gold with a thin head. Aromas are lots of peach syrup with floral notes. Fruity with some hay. Reminds me of Badger Golden Glory. Flavours are sweet and fruity with light toast malts. Hoppy and floral with a dry, slightly peppery finish. OK.

Bullit (4637) - Burgos, SPAIN - APR 26, 2010
Cask @ Counting House, JDW. Unclear light golden colour, short white head. Aroma is peach. Flavour is sweet peach, elderflower. Quite hoppy as well. Fairly bitter and slightly sweet finish. Bit like a tropical fruit drink.

DruncanVeasey (8226) - NUNEATON, Warwickshire, ENGLAND - APR 26, 2010
1) Cask, The Banker’s Draught, Sheffield. Pale gold with a slim collar. Bag of added juice/synthetic peachiness but bizarrely, it works; fine creamy malt balance, good rasp of hop, juicy tangerine mingled with the perfume. Quite a nasty synthetic/air freshener aroma, but overall, I liked it. 2) The Baron, Hinckley. None of the cascade coming over; biscuit malts and lemon jelly engulfed in airfreshener. Struggling with a third. This tastes like a Belgian fruit confection, but my Sheffield rate stands; Cascade competing pleasantly with peachiness, proving hops with a judicious sprinkle of juice can actually work.

downender (8660) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - APR 24, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Imperial, Exeter 19/04/10. Hazy yellow in colour with a decent white head. Sweet, nectarine and orange juice aroma. Flavour had lots more peach, some elderflowers in the background and a short, bitter finish. Not unpleasant but, aside from the bitterness, this tasted like fruit juice.

bobinlondon (1295) - Harrow, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 22, 2010
Hand pulled cask at the Moon Under Water (JDW) Watford. Straw yellow with a thick white head. Peaches dominate this rather contrived beer. There are some reasonable hops underneath but all malt character is wiped out. However, I have always liked peach juice and have to say that I would rather drink this than many of the same/same so/so dull regional gold or brown bitters that swamp the market..

MesandSim (7117) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - APR 21, 2010
A Mes rate. Cask at Baker Street ’Sporks.Bright yellow gold with a very good foamy white head. Awful astringent peach stuff. Some pleasant hops underneath with some mineral notes but mostly just harsh and peachy. Lingering aftertaste. Not for me at all. I must point out, peach flavoured things generally do not wit well with me.
