Thin, light, slightly tart, slightly lemony, dry-ish, a bit fizzy, fairly weak, not enough body, and the body is a bit edgy and mineral watery. I suppose their is a bit of refreshment in this beer, but theres no flavours that really stand out, that make it easy to drink.

It's no wonder Quayle's political career was cut short!!!! The Quayle ale is a very tough beer to swallow...at least for this guy!!! It was like a liquid yeast infection!!! The cloudy yellow urine color with white head revealed an aroma of wheat so strong I wanted to put butter on it. The taste was as mentioned above....yeasty! I did not enjoy this beer very much...and I am a conservative!!!

Clear yellow body with a slightly filmy head. Quite an inauspicious start...

Slightly overhopped nose, with some sweetness. The hops do seem too powerful for the style. Not bad, but not great either.

Taste is again too hoppy for the style, and the sweetness that was present on the nose becomes slightly sickly on the palate. Almost a lemonadey flavour to it - as though it's a ready-made shandy. I will say that it has an interesting palate, but I can't say it's an altogether enjoyable one.

It's OK. Drinkable, but nothing special. Certainly not as good as some of the other beers on tap.

wasnt as impressed with this beer as much as the others yet still a great wheat beer.
the apperance was fine. A little watery. a refeshing beer with good kristal flavours. nothing defining about this beer but worth a try for sure!

Again the range of beer at the lord nelson and the quality is very good!

A - Poured into pint glass a hazy light golden colour with a centimetre or so of white head that falls away quite fast. A bit of sporadic lacing.
S - Light fruitiness with some spicy, herbal notes.
T - Also spicy & herbal in the taste. A bit of wheaty tartness.
M - Light to medium bodied with a crisp, refreshing carbonation.
D - Refreshing, decent enough but nothing too exciting.

a) Pale orange / yellow, hazy.
s) Metallic hop note, warms to a funky, citrus aroma
f) Interesting smoky hint to the wheat grain flavours. Weird.... but I like it. Almost a rauch weizen, if such a thing exists.
m) Full mouthfeel, very slight tartness, late background bitterness
d) Not bad. Nice refereshing ale, but not "typical"
