COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Piercing bitterness in this ’brite’ English style wheat beer which mellows to reveal fruit overtones amidst a dry as a bone finish. This is a real thirst quencher.

In 2010, the bremaster can no longer get the wheat malt that was used so it is no longer a wheat beer.

Cask (handpump) @ GBBF 2007, London. Clear light yellow color with a average, frothy, good lacing, mostly lasting, white head. Aroma is moderate hoppy, pine, heather, spruce. Flavor is light to moderate sweet and moderate bitter with a long duration. Body is medium, texture is oily, carbonation is flat.

[Cask at GBBF 2003] A hazy yellow beer with a fine head. It has next to no aroma - only notes of malt. The flavor is smooth and sparckling with a prickling on the tongue. It is rather bitter but not much reminisence of wheat. It is pretty bitter for a wheat beer. An OK beer, but not what I expected.

[email protected] Very pale folden colour, mediumsized white head. Aroma is grassy, malty and very sourish fruity. Flavoiur is lots of fruity hops with some acidic and grassy hints.

Gravicask at the Sun Inn, Kelvedon for their bank holiday weekend beer fest. Pale gold beer, Residual white head. Dry palate. Light grapefruit - bitterish. A sweet something going on, trace of peach. Dry finish. Ok - could do with more ooomph!

This isn’t really a German style wheat beer - more like a golden ale or an American Wheat (not hat I’ve actually tried too many of those). The wheat is not very noticeable, but it is a pleasantly crisp and fresh, quite hoppy beer with a significant amount of sharp bitterness on the finish. As Gazza says, very refreshing, if a little one dimensioanl. Cask (gravity dispense) at Bedford Beer Festival 2004.

UPDATED: AUG 13, 2007 Cask at Oakham Brewery Tap, Peterborough. This is almost as good as it gets. I have known a 9 of this disappear in a smallish pub in 6 hours. Wonderfully drinkable with all of the normal Oakhams bits (golden hoppy citrus zesty) but with a roundedness from the addition of malted wheat. Fabulous. Re-rate Planet Thanet Beer Festival 2007. I had this 4 times, first and last beer of each day and it was faultless, the citrus aroma, the body that is fuller due to the addition of wheat and this grapefruit/tangerine finish that lasts and lasts.

TBone (18225) - Pori, FINLAND - JUL 31, 2009
[email protected] Hunters. Slightly hazy golden color, good creamy white head. Fresh citrusy aroma. Very lemon-citrusy flavor, some wheaty notes. Nice hoppyness. Good session beer.

Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2003)
Pale, hazy, small head. Wheaty aroma. Crisp palate. Bitter and biting taste. Very nice, but this is so hoppy you’d probably only want one pint of it in an evening! Rating discovered while packing for a move in 2010.
