Brewed exclusively for this Wetherspoon real-ale festival Pours a copper golden color with a full head leaving nice lacing. Aroma of fruit, peaches, grapefruit, toffee biscuits and berries. Tastes are similar, more citrus less toffe and a biscuity finish that is dry but with a zing to it. Smooth as can be but again most beers off cask are this way. Overall the complexity and drinkability are fantastic, subtle like many great British Beers but full of flavor. a great beer.
