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.

Cask @ Bow Bar, Edinburgh.
Pours clear golden with a slight greenish hue. Aroma has soft buttery notes, a touch of fresh elderflowers and sweet malts. Low carbonation, fine frothy mouthfeel. Flavour is sweet, some apple, a tiny touch of butter, the elderflowers are there, but not overpowering. Soft peppery and spicy bitterness. Quite nice.
