Poured pale golden colour, cloudy as you would expect from a Wheat beer. Reasonable head which lasted well. Aroma as you would expect from a German style weiss beer - banana's cloves, fruity and light. Taste was reasonable for a UK Wheat style beer (in the German style) slightly drier than some of the German wheat beers, and with less depth and body, but I still enjoyed this and would certainly have it again.

Tasted at the Cardiff Zero Degrees venue.

Served on draught into a Zero Degrees pint glass. Reviewed from notes taken less than a week ago.

A: One finger head of nice soft cream, good thickness, and favourable retention. Nontransparent hazy copper colour.

Sm: Orange peel citrus ester hops, cream, banana, and wheat. A moderate strength aroma.

T: Banana, orange peel, and other buried esters I don't have the palate to identify. Wheat and barley foundation is well suited to the hops. The cream is limited to the open. It's well built but off-balance. I wish it was more complex.

Mf: Smooth and wet, but overly thick and lumpy. Doesn't suit the taste.

Dr: The flavour is muted but the price is fair by Welsh standards (2.20 pound), and it's easy to drink. I wish the flavours had more fullness and depth.
