Bottle. Elderflower and citric fruit aromas. Some sweetness and a smooth body. Slightly artificial verging on cleaning products.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Lightly malty aroma, with a flowery, hoppy note. Poures clear golden, with a, not very longlasting, white head. Taste is lightly sweet, with a moderate amount of bitterness from the hops. Watery palate, and a nice bitter aftertaste

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Poured clear copper, low carb. Medium white head with ok retention and lace. Mild aroma of fruit malt with some floral hoppy notes. Nice sweet fruity start with a bittersweet finish. Quite innoffensive, but not in a bad way. Nice lingering hop aftertaste.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottled. A slight aroma, bit marmalady. Frothy yet diminishing head, amber body. Gentle fruit taste, hint of nuttiness. An understated ale compared to other Badgers Iíve tried

2.4 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 3/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
UPDATED: APR 16, 2009 July 2002. Very fruity - lots of soft orange. Pleasant, but nothing special. Badger beers are very tasty from the cask (especially Tanglefoot) - but donít do fresh bottling. [2.4]
April, 2004 Yep, elderflower it is - along with a whiff of co2 sheltering behind a scraping of fresh tin. A bit fizzy, giving a harsh, uncomfortable mouthfeel. Chemical flavours. The mildest suggestion of citric - sort of orange with lemon washing up liquid and a splash of canned mango juice. Not impressed. The world of Golden Ales has moved on since Badger created this. [2.4]
July, 2007 A clear, pale, bland, uniform yellow. Quite chemical looking, yet also vaguely reminiscent of urine. Thereís buttery notes, some fizzy orange, like a dextrose tablet, and flowery notes which could be elderflower. Metallic, lacking in character, and that boiled sweets pasteurised note. This continues to sell, so it must work for enough people, but it has never caught my interest. [2.4]
April, 2009 Sweet with artificial fruit flavours - some elderflower, palma violets, orange, cloying, stodgy malt, spritzy carbonation. Itís initially pleasing and attractive, but the artificial nature of the flavours soon overburdens. [2.2]

3.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
(500 ml bottle). Deep golden colour, good head. Nice hoppy and elderflower aroma. Elderflower is probably what I get in the flavour too, but I've never eaten elderflowers, so I can't really tell. There's some caramel and a reasonably decent hoppiness, but it's a bit too sweet IMO. A bit alcoholic too, despite only 5% ABV.

3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Very sweet sprite-like aroma and flavour, poor head. Too much fruits and no hops presence. Original, but a "to taste and forget" beer.

2.9 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Golden and light brown colour with a short head that doesn't seem to last. Very little aroma to comment on, took forever to come through but got some malt and some floral hops. Taste of what I am led to beleive is Elderberry took a little while to get used to but then grew on me.It was ok but a bit thin.
