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.

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

Man can only drink so many blond ales, and I’ve ticked this one off, and wouldn’t want to return to it, bland.

Bottle from Dobbies Garden Centre. Pours light orange colour. Elderflower flavour is very strong and overpowers everything else but still a very refreshing beer for a summer evening

ReV2 (147) - Northampton, Northamptonshire, ENGLAND - JUN 3, 2014
From The Old Bridge Inn, Aviemore after a walk in the Abernethy Forest. Elderflower aroma was strong, refreshing & spritzy with a good hop finish. The best of the 5 Cairngorm beers I tried while camping nearby.
