Retro reviews from Spring 2012 Wetherspoons Beer festival; amber colour some grapefruit in the hop quite floral almost like an IPA. kwik-lime (1978) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 7, 2012
Weirdly heavy texture and quite sweet, which doesn’t make it especially drinkable for the style. Dry hops in the finish but mouthful dominated by sweet malt. ManVsBeer (10683) - Hebden Bridge, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - MAY 31, 2012
The texture is slightly on the heavy side, but it does have a nice chestnut finish. madmitch76 (25009) - , Essex, ENGLAND - APR 1, 2012

Shakespeare’s Head Spoons, Holborn. Clear gold beer, little white head. Light dry palate. Minerals. Mild marmalade hops. Minerally fresh finish. Passes muster.
Cask at the Gig House (JDW), Wokingham. Amber with a tight cream head; malty aroma; smooth and grainy in the mouth, with a malt taste and touch of grapefruit; and a erathy bitterness to finish. A rather straightforward bitter,

On cask at The Playhouse for the Wetherspoons beer festival. Pours a golden colour with a decent beige head. Aroma of caramel, yeast and grassy hops. Similar flavours and mildly bitter. Mild carbonation, an oily mouth-feel and light CO2 prickle. Phictor (11) - DENMARK - JAN 25, 2012
Cask from The Wharf. Looks good, smells good almost a bit like yeasty forest. O.K taste though very simple and ordinary. Not thick and cummy enough phredrik (1024) - Copenhagen (formerly Aalborg), DENMARK - JAN 24, 2012
Pours caramel brown with a small bubbly head. Aroma is fairly hoppy, mainly citrus and grassy, has a fair maltiness, bready malts, caramel, cereal, a hint of liquorice, some esters like raisins and a bit doughey. Taste is pretty malty, raisins, caramel, cereal pretty "dark" for a bitter. Some hoppy bitterness in the back, but not really any actual hop taste. I don’t mind this fucken light beer.
