3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Cask at the Magpie & Crown, Brentford. Poured a pale gold with a fine lacy white head, grassy spicy peppery hops on the nose, plus a hint of fruity malt, with those aromas being amply fulfilled on the palate. A great balance of crisp peppery hops and biscuity malt, with a hint of grapefruit and a dry-bitter finish.

On tap at the White Horse, Parsons Green. Clear gold beer, light white head. Dry palate - very dry!!! Bitter hops - orange, grapefruit. A light touch of honey provides some relief from the dry bitterness. Edlerflower? Could have fooled me! Stupidly dry beer and a huge dissapointment!

3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Cask at the White Horse. Pours clear gold, light, with a fine cream head. Floral hop aroma with light grass and bread. Fairly sweet, with mild bread and caramel, then a strong though not excessive bitterness. Plenty of flowery hops and modest earth. Light bodied with fine carbonation and quite smooth. Lightly sweet on the finish with lots of lingering hops. Great stuff.

(Cask at Angleterre, Helsinki) Poured pale golden and almost clear. Head was medium sized, long lasting and white. Aroma contained fruitiness, hops and floweriness. Palate was medium bodied with low carbonation. Flavours were hops, flower and dominating bitterness. Aftertaste was bitter. The bitterness killed all the other flavours too quickly.

Cask handpull at Evening Star, Brighton. Pale gold, thin bubbly white head. Oh now, that is good. Love the elderflower hop mix and the finish is stunning. Just gorgeous. Works so well together with good bit on finish. Lovely hop finish.

3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Full pint from cask@Southampton Arms, London. A low greyish blond head, over a hazed, gold colored body. Subtle elderflowers at first. Then a scent sourish apples and light citrussy hops. Medium malt body, dry with a sourish twist. The hops provide more bitterness than flavor. Citrus again, and some herbal notes. Properly light-bodied, softly carbonated. Hop linger in the finish. Nice all over.

Pours golden blonde, mildly floral hoppy pint, with the elderflower coming through just before the citrusy bitter finish. The elderflower seems to go rather well, decent.
