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.

Handpulled cask at JDW Stanmore. Gold with a healthy unsparkled head. Very hoppy for a scottish beer. Dry and fruity with a citrus edge. Plenty of juicy malt too. Excellent.

Cask at Blackfriars Inverness. When I first tasted this I noted its crispness, with a good healthy amount of citrus flavours. Nice light gold appearance.

FatPhil (9591) - Tallinn, ESTONIA - DEC 1, 2007
Cask (Gallows Bird, Espoo, Real Ale Festival 2006) Flowery aroma, like a good wheat beer’s fingerprint. Also with some citrus. Very well balanced, good across the board.

mike_77 (3378) - Breda, NETHERLANDS - OCT 19, 2007
Cask @ Warrington Oktoberfest. Blonde coloured ale. Fresh, fruity aroma. Great balance of fruitiness and grains results in a smooth easy drinking beer that has fruit mixed in with the delicate hop flavour.
