Hand pulled at the Wellington, Birmingham. Nice squelchy hop juices here, which this brewer seems to pull off, more often than not. Golden, with good balance.

Cask @ Akkurat, Stockholm
Easy to recognize the taste of this brewery. The always present apricot tast is there. Originally I thought it was a hops deravative, now I am convinced it is their yeast. Fruity and refreshing as expected, not as overwhelmingly bitter as their other product. Wheat is not one of its character. Please, Mr Brewmaster, keep your produce to a handfull. Don’t rename every brew gone astray.

UPDATED: APR 27, 2005 Cask at Akkurat, Stockholm. Clear deep golden. Hoppy aroma with hay and sock juice. Fairly sweet and medium bodied with some wheat malt flavour and candy underneath a thick blanket of hops. Lingering very bitter finish. Damn good sock juice!

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Cask conditioned - handpump - Malt Shovel Northampton. A golden ale with a sharp lemon and citric hop aroma. The taste is also sharp and hoppy with more a JHB feel than a regular wheat beer. It’s the type of beer which is tasty but a little harsh and not moreish.

3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Bright gold colour. Flowery, crisp and fresh. Put me in mind of a softer version of the same brewery's Bitter & Twisted. Unusual beer for a winter seasonal. Like Silk Tork, I was rather surprised to learn that this is a wheat beer. No information on the proportion of wheat in the mash, but it is not overly apparent. Lightish bodied, but quite finely balanced. A pleasant, easy drinking beer that makes a refreshing change to those winter warmers. Handpump, Lord Moon of the Mall, Whitehall, London SW1.

2.7 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Golden colour. Sharpish. Citric hops - tangy. Taste"s just like a Golden Summer Ale, but on the pump clip at The George in London it says ’A Wheat Beer’. Nicely restrained - no screaming, slashing hops, but an invigorating tang.
