5 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 20/20
It was a couple of years ago a mate and I stumbled upon Hambledon at The Lamb in Surbiton. I’m not usually a fan of ’flavoured’ beers, but the elderflower was subtle, very subtle (like elderflowers themselves I guess!), and complemented the lightness of the beer so well ... well, we had popped in for a swift one after lunch but feared there’d be none left in the evening so had a ’few’ more!
ps It did run out early that evening!
