(Cask at Akkurat) Poured pale golden and lightly hazy with medium sized and white head. Aroma contained citric hops and something I didn’t recognise but which must have been elderflower. Palate was medum bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were fruitiness, citricness, something unknown that must have been elderflower, bitterness, sweetness, malts and hops. Aftertaste was fruity and bitter.
