COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; special for the Wetherspoons Autumn 2014 International Real Ale Festival.

The Titanic was built to travel the world – and this beer, brewed exclusively for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival, does so all in one glass. With its abundance of hops from every corner of the globe, it is light and refreshing, with a myriad hop notes sailing out of the aroma and flavour.

john44 (3392) - SW London, Greater London, ENGLAND - JAN 6, 2017
Cask Pint at Edward Rayne (JDW), Raynes Park, London in Oct 2014 - Orangey Gold in colour. Hoppy; earthy hops; rather rough bitterness. Fruity; sweet orange citrus. Malty; toasty malts, caramel. Sweet fruity hoppy with increasing bitterness into finish. Very drinkable. (2014-10-20)

tombyars (1766) - Saltcoats, SCOTLAND - NOV 12, 2014
Tasted this in the Salt Cot, Saltcoats (JDW) on the 31st October 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear pale russet in colour with a thin off white head. Sweet citrus note in the short malty aroma. Thin resiny mouthfeel and poor lacing. Mixed malts give a maltloaf base with watermelon fruit sweetness which fades quickly away. Long bitter aftertaste comes through with tart resins turning dry and astringent in the mouth. Malty finish though with sweetness fading as tart pink grapefruit gets a grip along with oak cask notes in the palate. A poor session Golden Ale and too astringent for my tastes.

Good one. Lovely hoppy aroma with caramel overtones. Golden amber colour. Thin head though. Taste of citrus and caramel. Biscuit also. Nice mixture. A little thin on the palate for the strength. However a fine effort. Will drink again.

imdownthepub (15326) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 4, 2014
Cask conditioned at a Wetherspoons. Burnished gold with off white head. There is a deep, earthy, malty note right from the start of this, fuller malts and a leafy, dry British hop flavour makes this rather drinkable. The only slightly jarring note was a hint of tart fruitiness, but otherwise pretty decent.

2.9
wheresthepath (2395) - Buckinghamshire, ENGLAND - NOV 1, 2014
Cask at the Monk’s Retreat, Reading. Light amber with a thick off-white head. Sharp and aggressive citrus hops from the off- really a lot of lemon here. There’s little bitterness though, and the brewer is clearly relying on the sharpness to balance the decent sweet malts behind. A dry finish seems to bring out the sharpness even more. For me the sharpness has been rather overdone. It’s certainly an interesting and distinctive beer that I think many will like, so well done to the brewer for that. Unfortunately it’s not for me.

3.1
berkshirejohn (6651) - Bracknell, Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 29, 2014
Cask at the Tilly Shilling (JDW), Farnborough. Golden amber with a loose cream head; caramel aroma; fresh, grassy, herbal taste at first, then some sweet caramel; the finish is rather thin and gently bitter with some length. Disappointing overall.
