Cask at the Castle Tavern, Inverness, 18/10/13. Clear golden with a good sized white head. Nose is toasted malts, vanilla, citrus, sweet fruit aroma. Taste comprises caramel, summer fruits, vanilla fudge, toasty malts. Medium bodied, soft carbonation, smooth on the palate, in good nick! Decent GB.

DeanF (1716) - Nunavut, CANADA - SEP 15, 2013
Has a heavy sweet hop aroma, and a perfect solid white head atop a golden body. Flavour is a strong reliable malt with just a hint of citrus. Dry finish. This is a very fine, well crafted brew.

SaintMatty (5518) - Uppsala, SWEDEN - SEP 4, 2013
Cask (Lord Moon of the Mall JDW, London) - Hazy golden in colour. Elderflower, peach and passion fruit in the aroma. Extremely refreshing taste with elderflower dominating along with notes of grapefruit, peach and lychees.

Pizd (432) - Merseyside, ENGLAND - AUG 31, 2013
(Cask): Golden colour with medium white head. Aroma of elderflower, citrus fruits and light hop notes. Elderflower in the taste but is way too powerful, puts you off it - almost chemical tasting. Some other faint notes were hops, malt and biscuit. Could be a nice beer if they tone down the elderflower and balance the flavours properly.

SarkyNorthener (2365) - West Bromwich (Yorkshire Expat), West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 5, 2013
Cask@the avion, aldridge. Hazy golden beer with medium head and no lacing. Aroma of pale malts and a touch of pepper. Taste is mild smoked malts, toffee, citrus and pepper. Too many, what I felt were off flavours. Not very good.

RichTheVillan (3447) - West Midlands, ENGLAND - AUG 4, 2013
Cask at JDW Briar Rose; Light golden amber pour with foamy white head, buttery aroma, detect butterscotch with some fruitiness trying to escape, diacetyl is it intentional.

maeib (8750) - Wootton, Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUL 4, 2013
Cask conditioned handpump Malt Shovel Northampton 28/06/13. A golden beer. Over sweet and seemingly riddled with diacetyl. The elderflower is sickly. Toffee elements. Really didn’t work for me and ios verging on unpleasant.

Stuartyboy (713) - SCOTLAND - MAY 25, 2013

Mysan_brewing (59) - - APR 30, 2013
Smells lovely flowery and sweet malty notes in the back. Light golden with white head. Taste is dissappointing. Aftertaste of dandy lions? Tart and medicinal bitterness. Not a winner in my book. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
