Tasted this in the Bull Inn, Paisley on the 20th November 2014. Cask, handpump dispense. Clear russet in colour with a thin pale buff head. Very slight note of malt but when agitated, a fragrance of sweaty socks comes through on the nose. Thin mouthfeel and good lacing. Mixed malts deliver a robust maltloaf base with a sweet orange citrus flavour present in the mouth. Hints of syrupy pecan nuts add a drier edge to the malt tone. Peppery hop resins give a spicy aftertaste which is short in intensity. Finish is again robust with a good malt background and a dry liquorice note present in the palate. A complex Wheat Ale and worth trying albeit for the dodgy aroma! AshtonMcCobb (6499) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - NOV 25, 2014
On cask at Carters.
Appearance - brownish with a creamy head.
Nose - lightly sweet, toffee and apples.
Taste - apples and brown malt but disappearing quite quickly.
Palate - close to medium bodied, with a creamy texture and a fairly good finish.
Overall - i didn’t get that this was a wheat ale. More like a Mild and almost a brown ale. gegwilson (3676) - North Yorkshire, ENGLAND - NOV 16, 2014
Cask in the Three Judges, Glasgow. Copper coloured with a cream head. Quite sweet with a malty flavour and a little marmite. OK.

Cask at Red Squirrel. Not so much red as dark brown, decent white head. No wheat on the aroma, most toffee and red fruit. Taste has a light sweetness, no real bitterness. Finishes a bit thin and insubstantial. OK. imdownthepub (14467) - Banbury, Oxfordshire, ENGLAND - NOV 29, 2013
Cask conditioned at The George & Dragon, Shutford, Oxon. Reddish brown with off white head. Fruity beer with a light caramel toffee, soft, sweetish but slightly heavy and cloying on the palate. It’s ok if not exciting. mr_h (5434) - Ayr, SCOTLAND - NOV 16, 2013

Taste - caramel malts, soft cereals, touch of toffee malts and fruity malts, bit under flavoured for the abv.
