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.

Benzai (8140) - Oirschot, THE NETHERLANDS, NETHERLANDS - AUG 19, 2014
Sampled @ GBBF day 2. Clear orange golden color, small white head. Smell and taste malts, lightly hayish, a slight touch of hops and some malty bitterness. Average body and carbonation. Ok beer.

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 (143) - 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.

Beese (1667) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - MAY 30, 2014
Cask at The Sir Walter Scott (JDW), Edinburgh Airport on 20 May. Poured golden, with a dense white head and excellent lacing. Aroma of apricots, dough and straw. Sweet tinned fruit flavours, with some bread and hay. Finish was syrup, malt and pine.

A nice rounded taste without a wow factor. The perle hoping came accross as subtle and supported the refined bitterness. But I don’t really get this as a wheat beer / malted barly combo. Apparently brewed with elderflower this didn’t come through in the least. At best a drinkable cask ale at worste confused. Drunk at the Gelnuig Inn with Stuart and Bridgid.

Clear light golden yellow, not much head. Big citrus aroma. Medium-light body, crisp finish. Refreshing.
