A Mes rate. Cask at the Southampton.wyzzywyz22 (2752) - Wirral, Merseyside, ENGLAND - MAY 23, 2012
Hazy yellow with a faint greenish tinge. Pleasant dusty hop snout with a good dose of lemon. What makes the aroma enjoyable is sadly the same thing that makes the flavour not so great. Lots of lemon and coconut, some spice and a little flat otherwise. Good bitterness in the finish but it’s not really enough to save it. Interesting and it certainly gets plus points for doing something different but it’s just not my thing.
Cask, Philarmonic, Liverpool. Diddley ? Selecta ? Pallid gold with a meek white head. Citrusy nose. Similar flavour with spice and lemongrass notes leading to some hop bitterness towards the finish. Seemed a bit thin overall. Unusual though, and top marks for trying to be different and all that but not really feeling this. Rune (13507) - Tromsø, NORWAY - JUL 24, 2010
Straw golden body, no head. Thai-like spices and herbs to the nose. Rather unusual taste of rise, curry and ginger, and some earthy malts, too. Dry hoppy ending. Very unusual, indeed. Nice, if not a great favourite. Cask, half at The Rake, London 16.07.2010. downender (8891) - Bristol, Gloucestershire, ENGLAND - SEP 8, 2010
Cask-conditioned at the Star, Talybont 07/09/10. Pale gold with a slight white head. Aroma dominated by the lemongrass, with a touch of sweetness and floral hop. Spicy flavour, with lots more lemongrass before a dry finish. A bit overpowering. rosenbergh (11799) - Tampere, FINLAND - JUN 22, 2011

Clear golden colour with tiny frothy white head.
Sweetish lemongrassy and wheaty aroma.
Sweet citrus, malt and wheat in flavour.
Clear for a Wheat Ale.
Cask conditioned at Minehead Beer Fest ’10. Clouded orange gold with no head. It took a long time for this to come on, so it may be that I’m not tasting it at it’s best. I have to say, it was a bit weird though, the spicing seemed at odds with the malty, fruity make up of the beer. I’d like to try it in better nick, but at present this is how I saw it.
