COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

undercurrent25 (2246) - Barnton, Cheshire, ENGLAND - JAN 23, 2014
Cask at Manchester Beer and Cider Festival 22/1/14. Pours a golden colour, taste is light with a peachy taste. Would be perfect in the summer

niquillis (2752) - Stoke on Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 21, 2013
On cask at Cheshire Ring, Hyde. Pours golden with white head, cloudy at first. Overriding taste is peach syrup, there’s probably a decent golden ale behind it, but the sticky peach is overpowering. Shame, I was looking forward to this.

Gateshead beer fest. I was quite prepared to be curmudgeonly about this, but it succeeds by a judicious balance between sweet fruitiness, and hop sharpness. The novelty works. Refreshing, and easily the best beer I’ve had from this brewery

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.

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 (10865) - 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.

2.7
Bullit (4825) - Buffalo, New York, USA - 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.

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.
