Brewed as one of the celebratory beers for Thwaites bi-centenary. Named after Alfred Wainwright, the renowned Lakeland author who was born in Blackburn in 1907.
A refreshing straw-coloured beer with soft fruit flavours and a hint of sweetness from the fine malt.

Karstenborg (1172) - Hasselager, DENMARK - MAR 3, 2015
Clear copper with a small white head. Aroma is malt, earth, grass and citrus. Taste is bitter with notes of malt and citrus.

Plovmand (8703) - Grindsted, DENMARK - MAR 1, 2015
Cask at The Prince Of Wales, London. It pours clear golden with a small white head. The aroma egg, malts and earthy hops. Straw, pale malts and light hops in the flavor. Not very good.

Decent if a little generic. Copper, medium off-white head. Mild zesty aroma. Light malt flavours. Very light citrus fruit, mild to moderate bitter finish. OK.

Senka (1097) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - JAN 4, 2015
From the ticks: A decent ale all around. Refreshing, very easy going and pleasantly carbonated. Good in bottles and in casks. A good memories of England.

Finn (8556) - Tromsø, NORWAY - NOV 23, 2014
Fra cask på Ye Olde Starre Inn, York 30 Okt 14. Gyldenbrun. Lavt tett skum. Forsiktig fruktaroma. Smaken tynn. Litt plommer men ellers lite.

jjsint (3652) - Leicester, Leicestershire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2014
Cask at Champion of the Thames, Cambridge. Mid-gold with a bit of white head and decent lacing. Pear drops, caramel, elderflower and candyfloss in the aroma. Sweet, juicy taste with a medium finish and a lip-smacking fruity caramel aftertaste. This beer seems to divide opinion but I like it. A by-the-numbers English golden ale. But a damn good one.

BeerViking (5198) - Brentford, Greater London, ENGLAND - OCT 1, 2014
Cask at the Victoria Inn, Richmond. Golden with a faint haze and a slightly lactic sour nose. The expected bitterness and hoppiness are there, but under a sour overlay. Done properly, it could make a decent Sour Ale, but here it’s in the wrong place. Wainwright is usually a lot better than this.

elbernays (1735) - Dublin, IRELAND - SEP 9, 2014
Half at Kettering Park hotel. Pours golden with a smooth ale creamy head. Light citrus notes with some toast, biscuit and bready malts. Flavour follows nose with a dry finish. Not much bitterness.

DanielBrown (4578) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 29, 2014
Cask at the Malt House, Birmingham. Remarkably easy to drink. I fairly wolfed it doon. Hardly much flavour though. Drizzle and caramel tears perhaps.

SarkyNorthener (5075) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 19, 2014
[email protected] longhorn, walsall. Golden beer with medium head. Aroma is faint malt and citrus. The taste follows suit with a touch of biscuit. Dull in the extreme.
