Cask: Special - Wetherspoon Festival November 2009
This golden cask lager has been brewed especially for this JDW beer festival (Oct-Nov 2009), using a carefully prepared lager malt and three varieties of German Hallertau hops, giving a light bitterness and a taste which is clean, with a tangy edge.
Golden Ale/Blond Ale
There are a few different types of blond ale. The first is the traditional "Canadian Ale", an adjunct-laden, macrobrewed, top-fermented equivalent of the American Standard. The second is common in US brewpubs - a light starter ale, with marginally more hop and body than a macrobrew, fewer adjuncts, but still not a flavourful beer by any means. The British interpretation is easily the boldest, hoppiest blond ale rendition. Some of these can almost be considered American Pales they are so hopped up - very crisp, refreshing, with relatively low alcohol compared with their North American counterparts.
