COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular.
Award winning new recipe. A light golden colour with a high proportion of wheat and corn giving it a clean fresh taste on top of which there is masses of hop, fruit and citrus flavours with elderflower on the nose.

A nice rounded taste without a wow factor. The perle hoping came accross as subtle and supported the refined bitterness. But I don’t really get this as a wheat beer / malted barly combo. Apparently brewed with elderflower this didn’t come through in the least. At best a drinkable cask ale at worste confused. Drunk at the Gelnuig Inn with Stuart and Bridgid.

Clear light golden yellow, not much head. Big citrus aroma. Medium-light body, crisp finish. Refreshing.

(draught) pours a clear golden colour with a creamy off-white head. aroma of honey melon and banana, with a hint of yeast, some powdered sugar and just a touch of butter. flavour is more butter and grainy pale malts, with heavy notes of popcorn and some floral hops in the light-bitter finish. medium-bodied with soft carbonation.

Holmen2 (1045) - NORWAY - MAY 21, 2014
From cask at Mosset Tavern, Forres. Golden, white head. Fine and persistent lacing. Subdued aroma of orange marmelade. Refreshing taste of marmelade, balanced with moderate bitterness. OK, but not very exciting.

Fresh floral aroma of elderflower, clear amber color. Nice minerally mouthfeel with lots of wheat, citrus, and floral hops. Great after a long day’s hike.

Cask at The Woodshed, Coylumbridge. Small white head, great lacing. Clear golden body. Floral nose, a little honey. Flavour is sweet and malty, a little citrus, floral overtones. Mouthfeel is smooth with minimal carbonation. Refreshing and easy to drink. ---Rated via Beer Buddy
