3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Cask at Wenlock Arms. Pours a clear, glowing orange-red with pretty much no head. Malt and fruit aroma with orange peel. Fairly sweet, with honey, caramel and citrus malts, followed by some faint earthy bitterness. Light to medium in body with fine carbonation. Finishes sweet with definite orange flavor in the aftertaste. Not bad, but tastes nothing like a wheat beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask at Wellington Arms, Bedford, where the pumpclip DID identify the brewer! Gold with a small white head. Faint sweet aroma. Some sour wheatiness, though I wouldn’t have recognised it as such. Slight bitterness. Decent enough.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Cask (handpump) at the Maypole, Cambridge on 29 July 2010. Don’t know what this is all about. Orange pumpclip. One word on it – Wheat. Plus the ABV. No mention of Nethergate at all. Fortunately the landlord was more than happy to go down to the cellar to check the cask for the brewery. Clear. Gold. Not a lot of wheat character. Clean. Alright but a bit dull. I may have been put off a bit by the stupid pump clip. Note to brewery – the primary purpose of a pump clip is to provide information about the beer, such as who brews it. If it had not been for a very obliging landlord I would have been really struggling to identify this one.
