COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask; Regular. Previously 3.9%.
A pale generously hopped session beer. Hints of sweetness, and a subtle elderflower aroma, provide a terrific balance to the hops. A real thirstquencher!

Cask. Aroma may have a passing breeze of elderflower but it is easily overlooked and my nose detect toffee. Certainly yellow gold with a thin lace top that breaks but persists. Taste is smooth and balanced with a bready finish on the palate. The readiness with which one can foresee another is more apparent than the refreshment promised but well pitched.

Cask @ Victorian Craft Beer Café, Halifax. Brighter golden with a thin head. Has a mild floralness to its hop. Probably sessionable.

Towey1989 (1654) - Stoke On Trent, Staffordshire, ENGLAND - MAR 10, 2016
Cask at The Fountain, Leek. A clear pale golden colour with a thin white head. Aroma of elderflower, some grapefruit, slight biscuit, a little lemon and subtle floral hops. Taste of elderflower, lemon, some grapefruit, slight biscuit, a little lime and subtle floral hops. Light bodied and soft carbonation. A soft, bittersweet, malty and floral hop bitterness in the finish. A pleasant golden ale, can taste the elderflower all the way through it, however it’s nothing special. Decent.

DanielBrown (4353) - Birmingham (via Leicester), West Midlands, ENGLAND - JUN 12, 2013
Cask at Craven Arms, Brum. Golden. Smells like a Summer hedgerow. Swooshy, liquiddy. Perfectly pleasant without being outstanding.

Nice golden ale, lots of floral hoppy aroma, good dry malty body. Nice balance, leading to a dry-sweet finish.

ladnewton (1762) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - SEP 28, 2010
Live rating: Cask at Southampton Arms, London on 28th September 2010. Light equity aroma, elderflower, wild berries and both citric and grassy hops in-mouth, and a developing grassiness in a finish that refreshes and quenches. Rather sophisticated. Gentle, easy light textured mouthfeel. Enjoyable pint.

Cask, handpump at The Turf Tavern, Oxford 02.09.10 Pours lmid gold with a white head. Floral and honey on nose, but not sure that I could tell it was elderflower, regardless it’s a good tangy beer, nice zappiness to this and a could beer to try alongside the Downton Allrounder. Nicely bittersweet, pleasant beer. A6 A4 T7 P4 Ov13 3.4
