Cask@Red Lion BF, Isleworth, London. Some aromatic hops, some subtle kiwi fruit and lychee, fruity, but quite crisp and short, pretty easy to drink and all that, but felt a bit thin.

Cask at Viper Mill Green Beer Festival.
Golden with white head. I did not really notice the elderflower. A pleasant beer but I did not find the masses of hops.

Pale gold colour. It was very difficult to assess the aroma of this beer as there was a barbeque smoking away in the immediate vicinity. Lots of grapefruity citrus in the flavour. Can’t say I noticed the elderflower. Dry, but quite soft, finish. Clean and crisp. All in all, a pretty good quaffing beer - no great complexity, but does the job. Cask (gravity), Red Lion Beer Festival, Isleworth.

Hand pumped at 2004 GBBF. Winner Speciality Beer category at CAMRA 2004, the brewing ingredients including wheat, maize & elderflowers. Pumped a clear pale amber with whitw head. Strong elderflower aroma. The flavour is also elderflower but with a nicely balanced bitterness coming from the American & pale hops. Full mouthfeel with citrus bitter finish.
